Paula, I wish you all the luck in the world. I'm having my laparoscopic bypass on August 16th at Brigham and Womans in Boston. I too have been fighting my weight all of my life and finally am ready for the jump start to weightloss will give us. I finally got fed up with everyone always saying she has such a pretty face but........ My family has concerns about the procedure but, they all know that my mind is set and there is no changing it. I'm just tired of being the only fat person in the family. I think that everyone of us in these weightloss programs has a bond that we all know how overwelming it is to have to lose 100 plus pounds. I wish you all of the luck and please keep me in your prayers. Bev Johnson

Well, it’s official! You’re on the losing side. The trumpets are blaring, the cymbals are crashing and the drums are drumming – all for YOU! I hope that all went well for you! You’ve been out of surgery now for a little over a month – YIPPIE!!! Your journey will have moments to “pause” – I’d like to impart some words of wisdom for when it does occur - remember these wise words whispered by Confucius – “It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.” Be patient. You didn’t put it on over night, it won’t come off over night (DARN IT!)…Don’t forget to update your profile at least monthly and take lots of pictures…the transformations will make your jaw drop!!! RNY 10/31/03 – down 90 pounds!!! Good luck!
