  2. Hi Claire.....Did you quit Face Book? I don't see you on my friends list anymore :( Hope you are well. Teri

  3. I haven't logged in for awhile.... bony butt...yep, I have one too and just pray you don't fall on your bony butt....did that twice and boy that hurts! I had to sit on a cushion for 2 weeks and ice my rear...ugh!
  4. Not for me...the last thing I remember is being wheeled down a hallway...don't remember the surgery suite or transferring to the surgical table. I was totally out before they got me into surgery. By the way....I wasn't nervous at any point before or after. Hated the gas pains and had a headache, but all that was forgotten once I started healing and losing weight. It's one heck of a journey and well worth it. I have no regrets!
  5. I've lived in Long Beach for over twenty years and have never stepped inside Joe Josts! Maybe it's time this gal did!
  6. I'm another one that hasn't been here in a long time. My life is very full and rewarding now that I've lost weight and can live like I should have years ago. I'm raising my eleven-year old granddaughter. It can be a challenge, but it's soooo worth it when she puts her arms around my waist and tells me she loves me more than the universe! TT helped me when I began my journey over two years ago. I lurked in the background...doing research...trying to figure out if surgery was what would be best for me. Once I decided to begin my journey, people here shared with my triumphs and down days....and I pulled knowledge from those who had surgery before me. I appreciate all who have crossed my path on TT. They are special folks indeed!
  7. Corrine, Thanks so much...I rarely have any free time now so sitting in front of my computer is a once in a blue moon happening. I like your avatar! We started out at about the same weight and wow! you've lost a lot too! How have you been doing? Are you still concerned about being underweight? I stopped stressing myself out about it. A few pounds under wasn't going to kill me and as long as I'm healthy, then I'll just enjoy my new life. Yes, at times I look gaunt and very old....but heck, I'm not young either!
  8. Thanks so much for all of the kind words!
  9. Hi all! It's been awhile since I've posted here. Life has been very busy with raising my soon to be eleven year old granddaughter and working. I feel great and am finally at a point in this fantastic journey where I can say that I truly like myself. Sure, I have saggy skin and the girls are all but gone, but hey, I've never been healthier or happier. I have no regrets, except for not having the surgery sooner. I can't seem to post my pictures here in the message (dummy me!) They are in my album....sorry they are mixed up (another dummy me moment!)
