    Congrats on changing career fields. This is something I have thought about if I was not able to get the new position I just landed. I wish you success in your new field.

    I love your Dr. Seuss quote and congrats on a PHENOMENAL weight loss. My surgery is in 6 days and I could only dream to be in the 130s and I'm starting at 198 at 5'61/2" Any advice you can give me about wrapping my HEAD around not being able to comfort myself with food and sweets and things.....would be helpful. That is the thing that concerns me the most. Thank you! Allison

    Hi, The gal you asked what happened passed away just about a week after surgery. Her story is on her profile. Very sad and scared the crap out of me since I am having my WLS the 24th!

    Hi Sweetie!
    Tried calling you!
    I am having a tummy tuck on July 3rd! Cannot wait!
    I think it will be great incentive to keep on track -- I hope so at least!
    You have lost so much weight! You are looking absolutely petite and tiny!!!!!!!!

    Hey , not sure if I ever responded. But yes I had Dr Pop ... He was great and I am not sure about the support group because this site has been pretty much it for me :-). How are things going since surgery ?
