HI! I have been on this site since the Spring 2016. I found this site by accident and glad I did find it. All the blogs and responses have been a huge help in my surgery journey. I could honestly say that I did not ever consider this for me until this year. I am getting older and still struggling with my weight. I am done struggling and hopefully this is the resolution that I have looking for most of my life. The never ending yo-yo but I am cutting the yo-yo string on October 19, 2016 that is when my sleeve will be performed. I am more excited and less nervous at this point. Chances are that will change on the 19th. I have a few doubting Thomas's but mostly positive people supporting my decision. I have decided that I am not buying any clothes until everything is falling off. I have all different sizes in my closet which I will once again put them on. I cant wait for that moment when I put whatever on and its not a struggle or depressing. Thank for reading my thought. Any advice or whatever would be appreciated.
