Hi Deb, I just saw you info and I can relate to your story. I have had G-By pass and have lost 147 pds. Its funny the way some of my firends who have weight problems look at me now. They seem to be jealous. I get new clothes and not a word is mentioned that they like them, but when I was fat and bought something new a comment was made then. Good job on your success. Its funny that your living in Dubai, I have a son and daughter living in Dubai. I was wondering where you had your surgery and I see that you are having thigh and arm tuck and that is what I need to have. Its very expensive in Canada and I am wondering if your having this done in Dubai and what the cost is? Maybe when I come for vacation there I might check into it. It is really hard to find a good surgeon. O would love to see the before and after shots of what they do. I am a visual type of person. I am interested in how will the scars look. For me I don't heal the best and I would feel not so good if the scars are bad. I would love to stay in touch with you. I am very new to this sight. Actually today is the first time I am writing on it. I just got the news letter. Keep in touch with me. My email address is [email protected] Good luck with your next surgery. Hope to talk to you soon.
