Well thank you very much, you look wonderful yourself and your kids look great and healthy. I always have mixed feelings about including kid pics but I think in your case it makes sense, you three are a package deal.

I am dead serious... that has not been my experience

I have tried POF but there isn't much on there I'm interested in. Lot if people on there just want to sleep around

I cant see profiles as i am not a member.

I used to be the...tell everything early on type. I think that was my fear of rejection..like I didn't want to see someone a few times then they dump me when I tell them I used to be obese and had plastics to remove skin....

In my experience, nobody cared that much about it so I shifted gears to that being something that comes up later as we get to know each other.

okay, I was on Tinder for about 3 days. It was not my style. a zillion one off contacts, but it never resulted in even a coffee date. The person who originally told me about tinder had the exact same experience. So, if you like your phone app blowing up with lots of random people it's awesome... if you want to meet someone IRL, I am skeptical.

I'm seriously thinking about rejoining the match.com world especially if my friend isn't using my account. I'll talk to her about it tomorrow and see what she says about if she is or not. I don't want to waste the free 6 month period though...

I just ended my subscription to match. I did meet a nice guy who is very accepting of my upcoming surgery this week....although we shall see how far we progress once we 'really' start dating and move forward. But...I am optimistic!!

Cool, a good guy and surgery. Good luck this week. Hopefully the guy prospect will keep the inevitable last minute freak out in check (the "why in hell am I doing this?" moments seem to hit everyone). All packed? Good list here:

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
