    I've been taking better care of the skin on my face since having surgery...using moisturizer every night, and wearing a little eye makeup which is something I NEVER used to do.
    Well, one day recently, one of the nurses I work with came up to me and said, "we all were talking and we all agree..."you are one attractive woman...YOU LOOK HOT"
    Well, I have NEVER been called that in my entire life, and never expected to be. I just smiled and said thank you! It sure feels good!

    I went to a family birthday party recently and after the party everyone gathered for a family photo. For the first time in my life, I stood in the FRONT ROW and was so proud to be there. I noticed that the overweight people did what I always used to do...push toward the back so they would not show up.
    I felt so sad for them, and so very happy for me!

    "for the first time in 3.5 years, I literally fell asleep in my love's arms."
    Tiff, that brings tears to my eyes, it such a sweet, sweet NSV. The best I've ever heard. Nothing trivial about it, just the opposite.
    The journey you have been on is so remarkable. You should write a book; I am sure it would be successful.
    Soak up the love, Tiff...and enjoy! And thanks for sharing your personal journey.

    Friends,
    PLEASE be very careful choosing a surgeon, paying special attention to their experience so you have less chance of a costly complication. This was recently posted by Alex on this forum:
    How can I select a surgeon for this relatively new procedure?
    The best results are usually going to correlate with surgeon experience. Any surgeon who has done more than 500 procedures for over 5 years in one location has probably optimized all elements of the operation and aftercare to obtain the best possible results. In addition, since the VSG stomach is the same as the Duodenal Switch stomach, any surgeon who has been doing duodenal switches laparoscopically is probably quite experienced with the VSG!

    Be careful, be safe!
