My Time to Shine!

Recommended Posts

It's a new chapter in my life as I pack up all the things my Ex gave me over the years, I put it in a box and put it away.

I woke up not sad for the first time I woke up rejuvenated! That I will find somebody who will want the same desires as me.

For now I start the most important task: Taking care of myself!

Seeing the Bariatric Surgeon is the first step this coming Wednesday. Then taking the rest from there.

I need to rebuild myself inner to outer.

This is my Time to Shine.

You can do it! Kind of like a divorce, your losing part of yourself. So excited for you.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from: 
      March 4, 2013   LAST VISITED
      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
