    having surgery in one month

    This may sound silly, but has anyone else had any anxiety over losing weight too fast?
    Jerseymom01 responded:
    Hello, I am also having surgery in one month and have no anxiety about losing weight too fast. I am just excited about losing the weight I have struggled with for so many years. My daughter had gastric bypass surgery 9 years ago and I watched the pounds melt off her. At first pretty rapid but then it slowed down. Good luck with your surgery and your success. Jerseymom01

    Do you have a support team in place you are working with pre-surgery? Please do bring this issue up with your doctor, surgeon or therapist.

    Anxiety can have many health implications and if you can alleviate any of your concerns, you'll feel better prepared!

    What is the date of your surgery? Let us know so we can send positive vibes your way!

    Thanks for sharing your story Jerseymom!

    How is your daughter doing today? Would love to hear an update!
