    Any Arizona Singles out there?

    Just wondering..... I'm up for chatting, not really wanting to date until after the surgery and I have lost weight. Just wanting a buddy pen-pal now. Who knows what could happen? Lisa

    My Time to Shine!

    It's a new chapter in my life as I pack up all the things my Ex gave me over the years, I put it in a box and put it away. I woke up not sad for the first time I woke up rejuvenated! That I will find somebody who will want the same desires as me. For now I start the most important task: Taking care of myself! Seeing the Bariatric Surgeon is the first step this coming Wednesday. Then taking the rest from there. I need to rebuild myself inner to outer. This is my Time to Shine. Lisa
  4. @@Pinkgirl1234 I agree that is the best revenge!!!!! Being happy and healthy. I find that the ones who commented so negatively with me were very much insecure themselves. So just the thought of me being happy and healthy just made them cringe. Time for revenge.
  5. Okay that makes sense that you have to schedule that after. Thank you all for the responses! I'm glad it moves fast. I want all the paperwork done! LOL
  6. I'm seeing Dr. Flavia Soto who spoke at the seminar and I really like her that's why I chose her. I'm going on August 19th. They said it will be two hours. I will see the Nurse, Dietitian and her but I wonder when they fit in the Psychological Evaluation? Did any of you have it the same day as your consultation? Lisa
  7. @@Pinkgirl1234 I agree! I think my former friends loved it when I put on the pounds! Hence the former friends. When I was young and thin they used to always complain to me how beautiful I was back then. When I first started putting on the pounds it gave them more power to knock me down and smile at my ailments with the weight. My ex boyfriend his mother was horrible about me being big, she compared her tiny figure to mine all the time. When I mentioned I wanted to lose all the weight. She would always go quiet. Her favorite phrase to me was. "Now I need to lose four pounds and I know from the way you are I probably don't look it." Glad to be rid of the negative people! Lisa
  8. Just what we all want a nice vacation where they cut out 85% of our stomach! *rollseyes* I swear some people think we are doing this for fun!!! My GI doctor who I have known for years when I told her I have a consultation with the Bariatric Surgeon she gasped and in a mortified tone told me "Cancel it, surgery is too drastic and dangerous! there are no quick fixes!" Have you guys noticed whenever bariatric surgery is mentioned somebody comes up with the "There are no quick fixes." It makes me wonder if my GI doctor thinks I'm thinking in my brain "Great! After surgery I will snap my fingers and POOF just make the fat disappear because I' m all of a sudden this magical goddess." Lisa

    My heart keeps getting stomped on

    Thank you all so much for your kind responses. I truthfully have been over the relationship for three years, it just hit that he permanently shut the door when I thought it was always open. I know I'm better off! Your stories about making lists are awesome! I need to do that. LOL I keep thinking of Kelly Clarkson's Lyrics "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger." Lisa
  11. "So we will pick these flowers for the reception tables." That picture and quote comes to my frame of mind when I think back to March 2012 in Michael's Craft Store looking for fake flowers for my wedding the following November 3, 2012. I had been with the guy for seven years unaware that he wasn't wanting the same things and was hanging on by a thread. I went from almost getting married to not even being able to whisper it or really think of it when it came to stepping on egg shells around his fragile state. Then the past three years shouldn't have happened. I should have left when he doubted if he loved me! I just believed him and I after our eyes met and we found each-other inseparable so many years ago that we were soul-mates, that he was the 'one.' Its funny how one moment your flying on air and the next you come crashing to the ground. This happened to me this morning when he closed that iron door for good, locking it and throwing away the key. There are things I want out of life and things I don't want! I want to fall in love again! I want to meet the True Soulmate. What can I say I'm a hopeless romantic! I want to think I will be back down the road with my Sis in Law picking out new arrangements for a different venue to my future dream guy. Right now those dreams have faded, whoosh! Turned to dust! So I thought about this one quote i read a long time ago. "Sometimes things have to fall apart so better things can come together." I won't settle. I won't give up on new dreams and aspirations. For now I have myself and that is enough. When he comes he comes! Lisa
