    My monthly group (through my surgeon’s office and the hospital) is a disappointment too so far. They bring in monthly speakers, but the group itself is so large and diverse (sleeve and bypass) that there’s rarely any good takeaway info. I think I’m going to start trying the group at the other hospital in town. Couldn’t hurt, might help.
    As for posting a fat FB photo, boy howdy.....I don’t think I’m ready for that. Monday was my wedding anniversary, one of many I didn’t get to have as I’m a widow. I pulled out my wedding photo book and was so embarrassed and sad that I was so heavy at that time. A good friend once told me that it’s ok to look at the past, just don’t stare at it. With that in mind I try to not regret things, but I regret that I don’t have nice pictures from that day. I just realized something while writing this. Maybe I NEED to look at those photos regularly as another way to keep me accountable.

    Oh Janny!
    Happy Anniversary. Funny, I was looking at my old wedding photos as well (I'm divorced), and even though I am heavy, they are some of the best photos I have ever taken. I have great photos with my aunts and uncle and even though I am divorced, I still want to keep them displayed because we all looked so good that day! You're right, looking at them really made me realize how far I've come and the fact that I don't want to go back there!

    No, as it's spring break month so we'll be visiting the kids and grandchildren. One week in Mississippi, one in Dallas, and one in Austin! I hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you learn.

    And of course our LAST ski trip of the year, leaving tomorrow. My last day of skiing sucked a few weeks ago, about 2 feet of fresh snow, I kept sinking and falling, so I told Bill it didn't count. I needed a do-over.

    Daughter lives in Madison, suburb of Jackson. We used to live in West Point and I worked at Mississippi State. We have lived in 14 states so have many covered!! Can you imagine moving three teens from the San Fransisco Bay Area to middle of nowhere Mississippi? Slight culture shock.
