Hi everyone! I happened upon this site accidentally and so glad I did! I had my gastric sleeve surgery one week ago today and I'm really looking forward to a better and healthier life. Tomorrow I go for my first post-op visit and barium swallow test.......yay.....Blech.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to having a place to go where people "get it". I'm also a splendid cheerleader for others but please don't make me wear the outfit......the world isn't ready for that yet!
