Hi Everybody, I have just a few weeks ago decided to undergo gastric sleeve surgery, which is booked for next month.
I turn 50 at the end of this month, am 165cm and weigh 92kg. I have been higher and lower. My BMI is borderline at 35 but I have a fatty pancreas and liver, previous gall bladder removal and family history of heart disease and diabetes.
I am still really confused about doing this, but after 35 years of starting and failing everything I am tired of constantly thinking about and obsessing over food. I finally admitted I am a food addict about a year ago.
I have concerns, mainly about the psychological process as obviously being a food addict I have used it for comfort. I also have concerns about loose skin, though I have had a tummy tuck so that won't be a problem, it's mainly arms and legs.
The 2 week pre op diet terrifies me as I am a carb junkie.
Anyway I am so happy to be here and look forward to sharing and learning from you all, and one day hopefully supporting others as you all do so wonderfully here.
