A Different Kind of Journey

I am starting a different journey.

I am not finished with the journey through infertility but it's being postponed.

I am on a weight loss to health journey.

As much as I want a child now I know that I cannot and should not get pregnant at this weight. It pains me to postpone my IF journey but if I want to find success I need to start and finish my weight loss journey first.

I had a consult yesterday for ban.din..g.

It was great and I really like my doctor. For the first time I feel like I have some control of my life and I will reach a goal I've set for myself.

I am excited and hopeful that the band will help not only with weight loss but with PCOS as well.

My doc seems to think so too - granted he is no RE but he's a fatty specialist.

So, things are in motion for the surgery. Don't have any specifics (much like starting ART) but I am excited and very, very hopeful.

I haven't decided if I'll continue posting here or if I'll start a new blog. Whichever choice I make I'll be sure to let you know!

Good Luck with the leg of your journey! Let us know if you move so we can cheer you on.

Hope it helps. I know you've had anaesthetic issues, too, so hopefully that will settle.

I wish you luck! I had the band and it was a great tool for me. You have to be very disciplined though because it is very easy to cheat. My Mother-In-Law also had the band but lost almost no weight largely due to the milkshakes and other liquid high calorie/fat things she consumed. It is only as good as you make it. Use it well and best of luck!

I wanted to thank you for your blog! I am new to blogging and started as an outlet for all my feelings - feeling regarding my PSOS and infertility. Good luck with the weight loss (I'm also on that journey - I actually posted my weight and before pic - oh my!)
