  1. Wow! Fantastic results already! Keep smiling that beautiful smile!
  2. I was feeling a little A LOT overwhelmed emotionally and mentally today - trying to get my head together and my ducks in a row since getting my surgery date last Friday - July 11th is the big day (YAY!). I think I started the whole I making the right decision? Will I feel left out when my kids are eating "yummy" things that I always joined in on? Am I strong enough to do this? Mourning food...etc. I know all of those things are for a different thread/topic, but I wanted to let you know that everyone who posted on this topic today just made me feel excited again about what is coming down the road - smaller bra sizes, clothes, shoes, ring sizes, keeping good friends around you constantly who inspire and uplift (and family too), and ability to physically move and appreciate it! I appreciate your words and the inspiration you all seem to be every time I need it - no matter where I am on the site! Here's to a bright future for all of us!
  3. Exited, nervous, and scared...but mostly excited to become the healthiest version of myself!

  12. Hi, I am Trish....I am SO incredibly excited to be here and begin my journey among my "new peoples"! I have been interested in doing GB for a long time, but due to cost of the surgery I was not able to afford it. But, as luck would have it, this year my employer offered it for the very first time - so I jumped at the chance I was given!! I am a wife to a great husband, and a mom to 3 kids - 30, 12, and 3 (the oldest two are my incredible bonus kids that came with my husband ). So to say I am busy is an understatement. I went through a major back operation last year and now I am finally able to move and participate more in life pain free. So starting this journey is the next exciting step to an even healthier and more mobile life - and I CAN NOT WAIT! Looking forward to getting to know you guys and all the advice you have along the way. I am definitely looking for buddies in all stages of the process, so be sure to pop by and say hi! Trish
  13. Hi, Ashley! I am just about in the same boat as you - a newbie and also looking at a July or August surgery date as well. I also have 2 kids - 12 yr old and a 3 yr old, so life is busy and hectic. We have similar stats and dates, so let's keep in touch and keep each other motivated along the way. I would be great to have a buddy online! Trish

  15. WOW! WOW! WOW! Great job - am so happy for you! That is fantastic and has given me a lot of hope and inspiration as I am just starting this process, so thank you!!!
