  1. I wouldn’t tell them much at that age. I wouldn’t mention losing weight. They probably don’t even know you are heavy! my youngest kids were teens and i did tell them. One of them asked me if I would come home thin. I thought it was such a weird thought (I WISH it worked that way! Ha!) but then I thought how would he KNOW what would happen, he never heard of WLS! So I did explain that my stomach would be smaller and I wouldn’t be able to eat as much and stressed the health more than anything. However, at 5 and 8 I would leave all of that out and just say you’re having surgery and will be
  2. Hey, @Nana Trish, I see this has become a family affair! Welcome, @PapaDavid! What a great thing to do as a couple and a great gift to give little (big!) Harper and the rest of the family....two healthy parents/grandparents! YEAH Team Trishid....or Davish!
  3. Thanks, @Cheesehead (btw, the swimsuit was from amazon...I bought the black in size 8-10 and the white in size 10-12 and it turned out the 8-10 was the best fit and it had underwires and a skirt which were my requirements. I sent the white one back because it was too big....I would have NEVER imagined a 10-12 being too big in anything!!! ) I will post a pic of them in case you are interested in trying them yourself. Warning the white one had white shorts under it (all one piece) and they looked like they could be a little too revealing if wet! So I m glad that was the one to go back! The

    Wow, I am impressed that your physical capacity for food is still small. I wish mine were. I go in cycles of eating really well and then not but getting back on track. Overall I am still pretty good and happy about my results and life. It will always be something I continue to have to work at (as we all do) but I refuse to let myself go back to where I once was! I did give an update/pic in my blog under 2 year surgiversary...so you can see how I am doing, not perfect, but content with my outcome. Glad your renovation is done. That can be a bear to work through. So did Leah’s par

    @Kio, how are you doing now?
  7. Thanks, @Jen581791, you were always such an inspiration to me I will never feel 100% completely “healed” of M.O, I will always be an obese person in recovery (who was it, @Michael_A or @AustinJ that said that?) but I am in a good place and appreciating my journey to get me here.
  8. Thanks, @tracyringo! I do feel happy Only regret??? Like 99.9% of us here (I assume) is that I didn’t have it SOONER!!! (am I right on that, everyone?)
  9. I just posted some recent pics of me over on my blog
  10. That is so true! I am thrilled to be this size in my 50s also! And the energy I have now is way more than I had when I was in my 30s and 40s and 200s!!!!
  11. So it has officially been 2 years since my surgery! I went into work this morning much the same way I did the surgery, as I now work at the same hospital I had my surgery in. That day, I went in very early in the morning, on the train as everyone else was going about their commute and I was thinking about how much my life was going to change! It was slightly different two years later, I still went in very early, on the train, and yet, I was one of the commuters heading into the city but this time I was thinking about how much my life HAS changed! I considered how much more com
  12. Awwww, thanks, @Cindy Lou Who !! You’re the best! Thanks for thinking of me. I wrote this up on the train yesterday but never got back to post it. I will stick it over on my blog but I saw this and wanted to reply to you. So it has officially been 2 years since my surgery!

  13. Hey, @tracyringo, thanks for asking about it. I just wrote an update in response to @Cindy Lou Who a few days ago but I can’t find it. If I can find it I will tag you in it but if not, I will have to rewrite it
  14. What an exciting and rewarding adventure (and so glad your son was a Wish kid and is alive, strong and healthy to do this with you!)
