    Default Vegas in May! Are you coming?

    Hi everybody

    After a wonderful show of interest, with 30+ people wanting to go, I arranged a trip to Vegas for May 18, 19 & 20 of May. I have 30 rooms block booked at the Tuscany Suites and Casino.

    Here are the hotel details for booking etc.

    http://www.gastricsleeve.com/forum/g...l-details.html

    http://www.gastricsleeve.com/forum/g...-arranged.html

    I have arranged for a plastic surgeon, Dr Bello, who specializes in after weight loss plastic surgery and a nutritionist, Dr Campos, both from Mexicali MX, to be there to provide free consultations.

    In addition, I have a few companies that plan to provide us with bariatric goodies, like protein shakes etc.

    I cannot make any further arrangements until I have further confirmation on who is actually coming.

    Some people have responded in previous posts but if I can ask again here if you can confirm your booking and how many of you are planning to come.

    This trip is open to anybody on this board, sleeved or not yet sleeved. Please respond here if you plan to be there and how many people in your party.

    I'm looking forward to an overwhelming response here . Only 6 weeks away!

    Thanks
    Michelle

My husband says yes but I feel guilty after my $9500 trip to Cali/MX for surgery just a few months ago. LOL.

    ~ doesn't think she'll ever reach her original weight, no matter HOW hard she tries. Hell, let's face it, 8lb 10oz is not very realistic is it?

    Hi Michelle, I believe I responded before but just to confirm, I live in Vegas also and plan on attending some of the get-togethers. Will you be posting more information here since I won't be at the hotel? My surgery is scheduled for May 3rd so I'll be just a few weeks out of surgery. I can hardly wait to meet everyone and hear stories, etc. Thanks so much for arranging all of this! Mary Ryan
