    Funny NSV

    Glad I could make you all smile. It's crazy the the things we do to impress our children. Weightloss is great! This weekend I'm going to the Bahamas and even though I don't look that great in my swim suit still, I am thirlled I could buy size medium sun dresses and size 9 mini skirts.

    I am so happy you decided to do it! I remember when you first posted that they wanted you to do this several months ago and you were unsure at that time. You are going to help many young people like yourself. AND you look AMAZING!!!!

    Should I tell my dad??

    I would rather someone know the the truth even if they are pissed and negative about my decision. And this is why....Rumors! The next thing you know it will be said that your on Crack, have Aids, have Cancer, or Bulimic. I could careless what people think about my surgery. They dont live in my body. And when and if I ever see my dad and he has a commit, that is just what I will tell him too. Parent or not, don't let him affect your happiness.

    Tummy Rumbling

    My tummy is so embarrassing! It makes weird loud rumbles. Usually it's just my family that hears it, but last night I went to the movies......AND OMG IT WAS LOUD! The lady next to me heard it and I think she thought I was passing gas...lol. When my family hears it they ask if Im hungry, I say no. Even when I drink water I makes these sounds. Hope this doesn't last forever.

    New to the board

    Welcome to the site! This is a great place to be. You will find alot of support and love here in addition to your daughters. I will not lie....I am 4mo. out and I still find myself wishing I could eat a big burger and fries or a big chinese meal. But it only crosses my mind for a moment and I remember how much better I feel now. Best wishes to you on your new journey!

    Cost Of Leak Repair In Mexico

    If you get a leak while in Mexico it is covered. You have the option with Dr. Almanza to take out the insurance that covers any problems once you get home to return for repairs. From what I remember it will even cover a flight if needed to return. I'm sure most MX docs offer this. I've also read on here where there is a company that offers some type of emergency insurance that would cover care in the US.

    8 months post op

    Congrats! And at your hight I think your correct not to stress over them 10lbs! Doctors are a little unrealistic sometimes. And Happy Holidays to you too!
  15. Great article. It makes you wonder if the surgery would help over weight alcoholics stop drinking. My husband reads media take out and told me that he read something about Paul Wall, but I just thought it was made up bc most of media take out is bs. I guess they had the facts correct this time.=)
