  1. Hockey pre-season game this weekend.   GO STARS!!

  2. Changed my name -  KarensTHIN.     I have taken my TURN and made the most of it.   2 WLS procedures,  5 years of doing the WLS dance and then the REWARD of plastic surgery.    HAPPY with where I am and now I just wear clothes.   I don't stress about weight or how I look.  I LIVE and enjoy LIFE. 

  3. I found the best surgeon and paid cash. It's a HUGE procedure and the pain and discomfort was something i was not prepared for. BUT - - - - so very glad I did it.
  4. so many people come down to line with end of the year. I think that the dietitian appointments can be "adjusted", one visit during each month,; but the approval process and lining up the surgeon, OR, ect ect will be more challenging. Not impossible, but challenging.
  5. I had Lovenox with all of my procedures. Beats having a STROKE
  6. ZERO pain ZERO hunger Anxiety - only while butt naked in pre-op and decided that maybe i would stay FAT. My friend was holding my clothes and told me to buck up and do it!!
  7. i sleep twice a day, literally. about 4 hours at night and one 2 hour nap after work. I got the FIT BIT thing and I am averaging 6.4 hours a day, with numerous time of awakens and restlessness. WHERE did SLEEP GO?
  8. I would continue to work with Cleveland Clinic, closely. Because they will go to bat for you with the insurance to APPROVE you in the end. In the mean time, follow the diet, increase exercise and turn things around. I think you will get the SAME response from any program, because they are all centers of excellence with the same criteria. Waiting a little is not a bad thing.
  9. i honor all of those affected by 911
  10. welcome back to dating world. have fun!!!
  11. I was driving to get a pedicure and I remember the somberness of the people, no laughter, TV's brought in to watch the news. People crying, schools and stores closing and Life as we knew it suddenly CHANGED. Bless the first responders, comfort to those who lost friends, co-workers and family.
  12. 911 I remember 911. Nothing is as important as our Freedom and security. God bless the USA.

  13. Medical clearance is needed prior to major surgery for your safety.
  14. You will get a letter with authorization procedure codes.
  15. Going from BAND to sleeve will be different, you will feel the restriction right away. Enjoy!!
