    Welcome!

    This is the best site for information, encouragement and support. And we have lots of fun, too ;-)

    Congrats on your decision. This is one of the best decisions I ever made for myself. My only regret is that I waited.

    I lurked and read everything I could here and watched lots of YouTube videos before making my decision, too. It helped me prepare.

    Best of luck as you embark on this amazing journey ;-)

    Congrats!! You are finally taking the plunge. My sister was sleeved 5 years before me and I kick myself often thinking why the hell did I wait so long.

    Woohoo and congratulations on your upcoming surgery. I was like you in that I considered it and researched for quite awhile before I made the decision. Oh how I wish I'd done it sooner, it's been one of the best decisions I've ever made.

    Just remember to follow your Doctor's instructions to the letter and things should go smoothly. Get ready for an exciting time.
