  1. It is a tough decision to make. My doctor knew I was unsure and scheduled me for a RNY possible VSG.

    In my mind I knew I wanted the VSG because of the possible complications later down the line with RNY. The other part of me wanted the QUICK weight loss with RNY. My deciding factor was that I have a toddler and I didn't want to possibly deal with malabsorption and anemia issues later.

  2. Wow Blondiee, you have done GREAT! Amazing weight loss, and terrific about your size changes - but yes, the expense bites. I stopped at our local Value Village today though, and found a cute Jones New York cardigan and a wonderful summer T with sleeves long enough to cover my upper arms - FIND! Try the thrift stores if you can, and costco has great prices on things like basic nice jeans. Just be sure to wear something like leggings to slip them on over - there's no changing rooms.

    My surgery is next Tuesday, and I'm SO jealous of how great you've done - I want to be you!

    Thanks @@katesuccess I am really happy with my results thus far!

    You'll be on the loser's bench very soon! :)

  3. I was dating before surgery and that has continued after surgery.

    Did the whole internet dating thing 14 years ago and I'm over it now. However, it did yield a loving relationship that lasted 2 1/2 years. :)
