This is the beginning. I have been blog stalking for a while now and the time has come for me to venture out into the virtual world and leave my mark. I just completed my pre-op insurance requirements for the Lap-Band..... 6 months of nutrition appointments and a psch. evaluation. Guess what...I am not crazy, yet :o) I am trying to patiently wait for my insurance company to give the green light so that my surgery date can be scheduled. Just so you know, patience is not one of my virtues.
