I’m really grateful for having found this group & all of you. You’re all mostly positive, encouraging & joyful. I belong to a few FB groups and Lordy.... some people are so darn judgmental. This weight loss surgery business is very serious & very real & I’m here because I’ve been beaten down physically, emotionally & mentally I certainly don’t need a bunch of shaming from others . I used to belong to WW “connect” app & they were all super positive & informative & encouraging as well. So ty so much everyone for being a supportive bunch. Unlike WW ... I’ve been unsuccessful in finding a face to face support group for WLS peeps. The one my hospital offers doesn’t even slightly cut it. Personally .... I do so much better in my life when I’m surrounded by like minded people that have similar goals & are striving to live their best lives. The surgical team at my hospital have encouraged me, when I’m ready, to help them with their group or start a new one. They’ll support it with the nutritionist, surgeon etc. In time.
But today... I have all of you & I’m super grateful for that. The wealth of info that you provide, the positive feedback & sharing your experience, strength & hope is invaluable. ❤️

I am grateful too. The Facebook groups I checked out weren’t for me, I think I posted once.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
