    Hi! I posted this in the Gastric Bypass forum but I thought I should post it here as well. The surgery type isn't important.
    I am a little more than 13 months post-op. Have lost 95 pounds but have stalled for a few months, and have had some bumpy roads getting here (serious double pneumonia for one). I would LOVE a buddy/partner (or buddies/partners - the more the merrier!) to help each other along the way - for support, common sense (i.e. "don't eat that Twinkie!"), all around motivation and friendship.
    I'm 56, mom of 2 grown kids, a nana to 1. I'm fun and outgoing and a great friend! (I feel like I'm filling out an ad to get a date ☺️)
    If anyone is interested - please let me know! Oh, I have about 50 pounds or so left to lose.
    Someone around the Baltimore area would be AWESOME - but via text, Facetime, whatever is great too.
    ❤️

    I'm sorry for whatever you've been struggling with. 8 years is a long time! Honestly, without a lot of stress I've gained about that much in a year (after losing as much just as quickly). I'm 55 and wish I'd done this a long time ago. So many wasted moments just because I wasn't able to do something physically. I totally understand about wanting to be active. I've become a hermit this past year. My mom died in March, and I've just put on more weight. We need to make this work, and get out there and live.

    Hey!! I'm from Phoenix originally. Miss the mountains. Anyway, congrats on the weight you've already lost! Do you feel ready? I am SO ready.

    Everything I've tried has been really good. I, too, LOVE the Salad Dressing, especially the raspberry vinaigrette. I'm not sure you can beat the flavor for what the calories are!

    PS - Me too about the "eat this now..." which is a terrible, dichotomous view that has plagued me my whole life. I am so ready!!

    Good for you! That whole age thing - what the hell? People are living longer and longer. Why should someone's life in their 70s be less valuable or satisfying than someone in their 40s? Or ANY age. I'll be having mine at St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore, MD by Dr. Andrew Averbach. He's the big kahuna of bariatrics there. Good for us! Keep in touch!

    And I my little flower wish I had come to the decision and sought it sooner. At 72 think of all painful wasted years I spent obese. But I thought it was too late, many people said over 60 you had to die fat. But you don't and I won't, close to your REBIRTHDAY date I too will be having RnY surgery, mine will be at OSU-Wexner Medical Center in Columbus Ohio and my doctor's name is Bradley Needleman MD, the chief of Bariatric Medicine there. When Frustr8 does it, she goes for the Gold! I love forward to sharing my surgery month and possible date with you! Curtsying and big😝Smile!

    I'm July 24th. It seems forever away and I'm starting to panic. I've fought myself in the "I better eat this now while I still can" trap. Need to get my head in the right space over the next few weeks!
