No more lurking.... time to participate



Recommended Posts

Just wanted to stop lurking and reading other peoples post and step up and out of my own fear of revealing myself......Hid behind weight, and computer screens far too long!

Have my surgery scheduled for 4/12/13 and am so seriously ready and excited. This is a gift to myself that has been seriously over due. I want to thank everyone for sharing all your stories, experiences, pitfalls, succeses, and fears. Reading your post have helped me to put a healthy and realistic perspective of what to exspect from VS surgery. I need to hear on a daily basis that this isn't a magic pill and that if nothing changes in me.....nothing changes! I am ready for this on all levels emotionally, spiritually, mentally and phsically. I look forward to being more apart of this Forum and not just lurking....lol.. Thanks! :wub:

Hi Vegas! I'm an April sleever too (4/8/13) and looking forward to it just like you!! Found a quote that I've living by these last few months to get mentally prepared for my new post-surgery life: she who cannot change the very fabric of her thought will never change her reality. It just struck a cord with me and have recited it to myself everyday.

Here's a cheer for all us April sleevers! ????

Congrats on your decision! I see you are a Mexico sleever also. I was sleeved in Tijuana by Dr. Jamie Ponce. This board has been a wealth of information for me pre and post sleeve. Glad you are here. :):):)

Hi VegasgalIVS,

Welcome to the forum & I'm new too here! I am learning way more here than I did in that 1 hour seminar I attended. I would have asked way more questions but I didn't know what to ask, but as the days go by & I read more here, I'm learning to ask more questions & hopefully will be more prepared!

So excited for your enthusiasm! You sound like you're ready to become a "post op poster!" :P Please continue to share your journey because you're helping the newbies like me!! Wishing you all the best!
