I had my surgery 3/14 so we are one day apart on our surgeries.  There are a few of us here that had surgery on both 3/14 and 3/15 so we are all in it together regardless of date.  Glad to have you here!

some folks may visit the site every now and then, but others are on here daily. I think it depends upon your own personal support system. Never underestimate the power of getting support and accountability. This site is really great for that. Granted, not everyone on here knows all the answers, but there are enough people who will help you find the answers you are looking for, and if you have a question, you can do a search and find that many, many people have already posted that same question, and had that same experience at one time or another.
Very few of us have someone in their own circle of friends who can relate to all the challenges that WLS patients face.
Look forward to following your progress.


Wishing you all the best, Carol       
count your blessings!!!!   At goal weight.   I am 5 ft 3.
