    Hi everyone!!!
    I am new to the group.
    I am 63 years old. Currently weigh 329 pounds.
    I started my journey on May 1st and am working my way through all the requirements. Just have my psych evaluation and then I will be done.
    I will be having the gastric sleeve done. I have Crohn's disease so I cannot have the bypass.
    I am really excited to be doing this and looking forward to the start of a new life.

    Welcome to the group. Surprised you can't have Bypass with having CD. I have it and had Bypass in December. No issues with CD. Good luck with your surgery!
