Hi everyone! I will be sleeved on May 25th. I am extremely excited and can't wait to see my progress. I'm hoping and praying that everyone has a safe and uneventful surgery! Can't wait to see you all on the LOSER'S BENCH!! But don't save me too much room because soon, I won't need it!

Thanks Mr. Mom! Right now, it's ALL positive! Now, when I'm stuck on that liquid diet.... I may not be so sunny! LOL But, I'll look to my OH friends to pull me through!

Hi there! Congrats on the surgery date...TOMORROW STARTS A BRAND NEW YOU! I've learned NOT to let negative people and their thoughts turn me from doing what I NEED to do. They don't live in my shoes. They don't know my struggles. The private cries I had at night. The looks and taunts that I still hear. I pretend it doesn't bother me, but deep down, it hurts. People who have NEVER had problems with weight and being gawked at because of weight will NEVER understand. And truthfully, THEY wouldn't want to be our size!! So why are they acting up when WE decide to do something about it!! Sometimes, people truly make me sick sometimes..... LOL Sorry, I didn't mean to vent like that. But I'm sure you understand where I'm coming from....

Please, go into this day with a positive attitude. YOU have to live with this decision, no one else. When all else fails, THAT'S all that matters, what YOU want and need to do for you! I will keep you in prayer, and I'm hoping that you have an uneventful surgery and recovery! Please keep us posted! Gonna add you as a friend! Lap Band or VSG, we all have a common goal.... A slimmer, trimmer, and healthier US!!
....just your classic story of an overweight beauty who's looking for a change!!

Aww thanks! I will do! You do the same for me! And as far as the positivity, well.... I've got too much to lose (pun intended) to NOT think positively! It's the only way to go! Now, I'm hoping to REMAIN in this frame of mine AFTER surgery and I can't eat! LOL We shall see!

Hi Rachael! I wish you the best on our surgery date! Do I feel lost??? Honestly, right now, I don't know how to feel. I'm happy and excited, but I'm also scared out of my mind!!!! But I'm determined to do this. We will be successful! WE will succeed! No remorse here. I'm loving my sleeve and I don't even have it yet! (I'm hoping this attitude will last! LOL)
