[font='comic sans ms'][color=rgb(255,0,0)]I am new to the BariatricPal community family. I joined because I too, plan on finding the skinny person inside of me by doing the Gastric Sleeve Surgery. I joined the community today after a dear friend and one of my supporters told me of the great advice she gets. I am hoping to get the same support as well. [/color][/font]

[font='comic sans ms'][color=rgb(255,0,0)]Who am I?I am in my mid 30's. I am married and a mother of 3, ages 1, 12, and 16. Yes, before you say it...what a big age range...all i can say is uh-oh happens and I love each of them. LOL. Some say that I am extremely funny and a great listener. I foster positivity and LOVE talking to others.[/color][/font]

[font='comic sans ms'][color=rgb(255,0,0)]Where am I in the process? I am in the very beginning stages. I have attended the orientation offered by the surgeon/hospital where I plan to have my procedure done. I have my first meeting with the surgeon in just a few weeks. I am happy and nervous at the same time. [/color][/font]

[font='comic sans ms'][color=rgb(255,0,0)]Why do I want to do the surgery? There are numerous reasons as to why I want to do the surgery, see below:[/color][/font]
