Hi Kacee! You're right, does seem to be quite a few TX folks here! That's good for us though, lots of friends and neighbors to communicate with. I remember finding LBT from a link on Dr Spivak's website. I like the variety this forum offers, and of 'course all the wonderful people who are on the same journey.

I wanted to wish you good luck with your upcoming surgery on 5/23... I bet you're getting excited, making all final preparations.

Dr Spivak did my surgery in Oct 2005, and I've had slow/steady progress. I'm about 25-30 lbs from goal and plan to get there by my 2 yr anniversary in October.

All the best,

Karla

I'm 4th generation Texan... my ancestors settled around the El Campo area after leaving Czechoslovakia. What about ya'll? Can't imagine living anywhere else (except maybe Colorado...during the summer!!)

My great grandfather was walked down on the Trail of Tears with my full blood Cherokee grandmother. He was an Irish schoolteacher. My grandfather was born on a reserve before Oklahoma was a state. He then moved down into Texas in the early 1900's. I absolutely LOVE Texas. I have been to other places, but there is no place like home. God bless Texas.

Now living in McKinney, north of Dallas. Home is farther west Abilene/Lubbock region.

Are you still in El Campo TerriDoodle? I am from Wharton :(

There are a lot of Texans here! :)

Cool! No, I grew up and live in Houston but we have the family farm in New Taiton and all my best memories are there. I still have some family in El Campo and that's where we gather for holidays.

Hey, TerriDoodle!

I live in El Campo and am new to this forum. I hope to be banded in March or April after I bring my BMI down close to 50 and lose about 40 pounds. My doctor is Guillermo ponce de leon from Sugar Land, and I will have the surgery at The Methodist Hospital in Sugar Land. Do you know anything about him? Later, Katie

HI HeatherGurl,

Hey Wharton girl. I live in El Campo. I hope to be banded in March or April after I lose 40 pounds and bring my BMI down to 50. I noticed that you have lost 190 pounds!!!!! That's awesome!!!!! Have you kept the weight off? How do you like that new KFC and Taco Bell? I haven't eaten there yet -- trying to lose that weight! I'd love to hear back from you.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      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
