Hello everyone!  Just been creeping around this site, trying to figure it all out and reading what I can.  I am hopefully just a few months out from sleeve surgery.  My insurance company requires a 6 months waiting period, and I am about halfway through that.  I've met with the surgeon twice, met with the nutritionist twice, met with the psychiatrist, and am trying to keep my weight steady until I get final approval...a tough task with all the aches and pains I am feeling on this 260 lb body.  I was so inspired by reading the Less Dangerous Curves blog and found this support group as a result of thoroughly reading her page.  I was actually approved for surgery back in 2010, but chickened out at the last minute and decided to do it without surgery.  I got a trainer and went on to lose about 75 pounds, but could not get my weight below 198 despite a weekly regimen of 7 days of cardio, 3 days of strength training, and a strict diet.  My weight held steady for about a year, but then I broke a toe and my cardio came to an abrupt halt.  My weight skyrocketed and I have not been able to make any progress on it since.  So many comments here hit so close to home.  I am fearful and excited about the path ahead, and I hope I can learn a lot from all of you who have already gone through this!
