  1. T minus 41 Days (AND COUNTING....)

    Well.... as my surgery date approaches, I have been forced to take a hard look in the mirror. The latest "Ah-ha" moment for me today was putting on a skirt for work and literally stuffing myself into it. Then I put on my button up shirt and there were gaps. I feel uncomfortable and blahhhhhhhhh. My bubbly personality still tries to escape this obese body I have imprisoned myself in. It is just terrible and sad that I have let myself get to this point. I am so sick of being the "fat" ...
  2. T minus 47 Days

    Ok.... I am embarrassed to say it, but I am not doing wonderful pre-pre-pre-surgery prepping. I had these grandiose plans to get a head of the game and start drinking my waters, exercising, cutting out sugars and carbs and sticking instead to protein shakes with lean meats and veggies. Anyone that has seen me on the site might know that I just had my 4th granddaughter and I was actually in the delivery room. I work fulltime and in between, I have been trying to help my daughter and son-in-law ...
  3. Question about routine testing - Colonoscopy

    So it appears that now that I am 50, I am supposed to have a yearly colonoscopy. My question to the group is how does the "prep" work then you have a small stomach? I put the test off so I could be with my daughter when she had her baby. Now I am going to put the test off so that I can have my Sleeve Surgery. Has anyone else dealt with this?
  4. My Granddaughter is here!!! Now it's time for me to focus on my Surgery

    The last 2 days have been so surreal... I was blessed to witness the birth of my 4th grandchild, Lillian. I will never forget not only witnessing the miracle of life, but having the privilege to cut the umbilical cord at Lily's birth. Words just can't express how I feel to hold this perfect, beautiful little girl ❤️
