Great news on your decision.  I am going in for surgery tomorrow and am very excited to start the next stage of this weight loss journey.  I have only been slim for 2 years of my 50 yr life and I still remember the confidence it gave me so I would like to return to that feeling.
Being overweight has clouded everything I have ever done and has caused me depression.

I wish you all the best.  I know this is only a tool and not a magic bullet however it is a help.

Good luck.  I hope you do not have to wait too long.

Have spoken to hubby about it and he is being very supportive - he has agreed to come along to the doctors appt this week to get my referral. I really don't know why I was worried about telling him he has loved and supported me for 26+ years. In fact he said he is proud of my decision and is glad that I am doing this for myself and not trying to please others (like I usually do).

Hey Guys,

My name is Kerrie-Lea and I am from Port Pirie in SA.

I am new on here and just looked you up. I am going to see my doctor next week to get a referral for Gastric Sleeve Op. 

My main issues (apart from my weight) is I have type 2 diabetes, on insulin that I cannot control very well. I have high cholesterol and depression and I love to eat....

I have decided that I need to have a Gastric Sleeve because I have been overweight my whole life since puberty and even though I have lost weight a few times during my life I have always got to a place that I cannot loose anymore weight so one of 2 things always happens - 1 I get an injury and cannot train anymore so I give up and eat., or 2 I cannot lose anymore weight so my depression kicks in and I eat.

I will be 50 in 2 years and feel that as my husband and I consider retiring and travelling I want to get my health under control so can enjoy my twilight years.

I know my husband loves me but I feel that I cannot bring this up to him until I see my doctor and get his referral - is this crazy - I just feel I have given my hubby enough promises during our lives together that he my be dubious about my decision. I am not sure.

Anyway this is me and - Hello to you all I hope ot make some great friends on here and cannot wait to read all your stories.
