Hi all,

So as I try to imagine what it would be like to be thin (I really don't know... I was a size 16 in grade 9), I imagine myself wearing things like nice heels. Is that possible? Do our bodies forgive us that much?!

I was wondering if anyone has read any of the recommended books for getting ready for surgery, and if you found them useful?

I appreciate all input, regardless of which centre and stage you're at. :)

Hi all,

I am wondering which surgery you had, RNY or VSG, and why?

Hi all,

I am wondering which surgery you had, RNY or VSG, and why?
