    Talking Is anyone going to the SouthEast VSG Conference in Chatanooga this year?

    I found out about this a few weeks ago and I just made my reservations tonight! Its happening March 10, 11, & 12 2017.
    I cant wait to go and meet new people who are dealing with life after VSG like I am. I found out about this from this very awesome man Mike Yarborough who posts on Youtube about life since VSG and he is super motivational. He will be speaking and I cant wait to meet him, I have been talking to him on fb lately. More info about this conference can be found on their website.
    http://www.southeastvsg.com/home.html

    And here is a link to Mikes youtube videos if you need a bit of motivation this man is amazing!

    Wow that is cool. I can't go because we have a big trip to Italy planned in July but this could be something for next year. By then I will be at goal and in maintenance phase.

    This looks interesting enough. I might actually attend because I am always looking to make mini-vacations out of locations I have never previously visited. Also, the airline ticket from Dallas to Atlanta is fairly affordable right now.

    So, yes, I am leaning toward attending.

    Did I look at the cost correctly. Is it only $100 for the 3 day event. I understand that hotel expenses are separate from event costs. I'm actually a day's drive and might consider going.

    Yes $100 plus a $5.99 fee for three days and includes two meals. Total when you register is $105.99 for each person. My husband is going also.The hotel rate is $135 a night. The hotel looks really nice with an indoor pool.

    I just registered and booked the hotel.
