  1. I got this idea at work. How about we try a Dec 2016 team calendar. It's free! Anyone here can post on it and view it so you can find an "accountabilaBuddy" or surgery twin. You don't need to create an account to post. Just use the URL to go to the calendar: https://teamup.com/ks5074f51794efefeb *****Make sure you are looking at December 2016 and not November Click on your date Under Title: Put your MyBariatricPal user name Under Who: Put your actual name or name you pref your friends to call you Under Where: Put your location I figure if this works, then it would be a lot easier than scanning topics looking for your date. There are a lot of awesome people here!

      I use an iPad or iPhone. The app is a pain to deal with so I use my browser and just come in via web.

  6. Took a mini break to hang out with vsg instagram fam. I generally like the folks here, but a few get caught up in power plays/ control. We are here to try and support/help one another.

      Yes, one would think, but my guess is that you can recall such people throughout your school years, at work and...at the supermarket. It's the nature of the beast/brute. Each of us can choose our cohorts and ignore the others. There are good people here! Like me!

  7. As I set up my Youtube and other social media to document my sleever process, I'm on the look out for others who are/have done the same. If you are a Sleeve blogger, vlogger, instagramer, tweeter, youtuber etc.....leave a note on how I (and others) can follow you. Thanks!

    Dates here!

    Any Sleever for December 2016. I'm not sure everyone understands the diff between the forums and the groups. If they list their MBP username, I shoot the group's link to them and let them know that they can access the group via a laptop/desktop computer. I understand, I was just asking cause you posted that in a fourm that was posted to the group lol so i just wanted people to understand the calendar I did and that i post on people surgery day to show them support was strictly for group members so that it can be a private group support type thing because there way to many people in December haha I'm getting so many private messages asking why they aren't part of it, so thats why i asked lolThere is a ton of sub groups out there and lots of active folks. A couple of facebook groups have also sprouted up. Sent from my iPad using the BariatricPal App
  18. I have been dragging my feet on posting an introduction, so I apologize! My name is CC and I'm 38 female in Central Texas. I have committed to VSG surgery for December 15, 2016. I have always been bigger but not always overweight. I allowed people to tell me I was "too big" and I didn't protect my self esteem. I became complacent and lazy, and failed to address issues that led to being greatly overweight as I got older. The truth is I will always be big, but I desire to no longer be morbidly obese. I vow to never be over 400 lbs again, and I know there are others betting the challenge of higher #s in being overweight. Let me share some basic stats: Highest recorded weight:427 lbs Weight at 1st VSG consultation appmt: 412 lbs Current weight (as of 11/29/16) 388 lbs Height 6'4" (not an error, I am a very tall woman). My goal weight is 225 lbs. My surgery date is December 15th, 2016 for VSG. I know that I have a unique figure / stature, but I welcome connecting and sharing this special part of my journey with kindred spirits, no matter what your personal stats or background might be.

    Out of pocket expense

    I'm in Texas as well. went to my presurgery last week and still haven't gotten a hospital total yet.No word from my anesthetic dr either. My surgery is next week. My actual surgeon is collecting her full cost tomorrow. I have Aetna and I'm required to pay my surgeon $5000 plus a co-pay of about $1000 more. Sent from my iPad using the BariatricPal App
