Hi Everyone! My name is Carol and I will be leading the Pittsburgh Chapter. I look forward to meeting my fellow Pittsburgers and getting to know all of you!
I had my Sleeve surgery on Dec 19, 2013 and I LOVE it. I am currently down about 57 pounds. My personal goal is to lose between 80 and 100 pounds when all is said and done. I had my Surgery at McGee Womans Hospital by Dr. Carol McCloskey.

I will be working on getting a space for us to meet in the next couple of weeks. If you have any suggestions, please let me know! I want to make myself available to you, so you can email me at cmb73@live.com if you have any questions that you might not want to post here.

So....where is everyone?!

Hi Crosby! I am so excited for you as you begin your journey. We will be having meetings all over the Pittsburgh area so I hope you will be able to join us. In the meantime, if you have any questions, we are here for you!

Hi There! Is't Dr. McCloskey THE best?! Magee was awesome, all the people there were amazing. How long were you in the hospital?? The Stalls really stink but you have to keep your head in the game and remember this is a process. Your body will catch up!

BrandNew! How are you? I would LOVE to hear about your experience in Mexico. I know so many people that don't have insurance but are very nervous about going to Mexico. I am sure you would be able to help them a lot!

I am willing to travel almost anywhere to have a meeting. So, if any of you have any ideas on where we might be able to hold on please let me know. I have my 6 month appointment with Dr McCloskey in a couple of weeks so I am going to ask her about having one at the hospital.

Hope you all have an awesome day. I am running a Golf outing tomorrow so I am finishing up some last minute things and will be enjoying the company of my family that is in town from NJ. Get out there and enjoy the gorgeous weather!!!

Hi Spazdd!

We haven't had a meeting yet. I must admit that I have dropped the ball a bit. If you have any suggestions as to where we might have our first meeting please let me know. Good luck at your appointment today. If you have the chance to tell the staff about our group, please do.

Here is a question to the group....I know we are all spread out, but if you had to pick one of these locations for our first get together, which would you choose...

Oakland

Robinson

Hi everyone,

I am so excited to see this post this morning.

I am from the Pittsburgh area. I live in West Mifflin, right down the street from Kennywood Park. I had my surgery one year ago at Magee with Dr. McCloskey. I would love to join your group. I am more convenient to the Oakland area but Robinson is not too far away either.

Hi Lorie!!!

I go to West Mifflin frequently. My husband and I are always at Hot Metal Harley and the Hot Metal Diner. Looks like we have a few of Dr McCloskey patients. I just referred my friend to her too. I absolutely adore her. She made this experience so much easier than I thought it would be!!!

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
