I am looking for any of the people that used to be in the peer support forum for June of 2005. I was just wondering how they all have been doing. We all went through so much together before and after our surgeries, and without you all I would not have done as well as I did. If any of you are out there, let me know how you are doing!

Wendy I had my DS in February 2003, so I guess I'm considered an old timer. It was so different back in the day - very little internet information, mostly face-to-face and word of mouth.

I've been fortunate that my DS continues to work for me. I'd gained about 15 pounds a couple of years ago and felt horrible. Lo and behold the DS still worked - cut the carbs and the extra 15 just melted away. I've been able to keep those additional pounds at bay.

Welcome back!
