I know what you mean...I used to be very active, but the drama on all of the boards got to me, so I left. Now, I really don't identify with the "gastric girl" mentality. I am me, all 150 lbs of glorious me. Frankly, it is rare that I even think about the surgery (unless, of course, I am lured by a luscious bit of sweet mana from heaven, shove it down my gullet, and am *****slapped by the gastro-gods).
I am thankful for the surgery, but it no longer defines me. I define me, and my definition is FABULOUS!!! LOL
