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.

      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:

      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.
