StrpaerobicsWannabe,
You just had your surgery last month and are down to 122lbs! Before surgery you were 244?
I am considering WLS also. My initial info visit is this month. Thinking RNY. Lapband does not so so good for me. How have you been feeling?? Eating with any problems?
I am 42 years old with a baggage of health issues and bigger then I was when I gave birth to my kids. I am so ready to change it all!

I feel like a failure.I struggle with getting support since the move to Texas away from Family and Friends. I need to find a support group and some WLS friends in my area!I started weight watchers this week and I need to re-commit to eating right, small portions and working out. I need to eat, breath and move!!! OK on a Happy note I got Married in June But I'm sad because my Dear Husband has not seen me BIG in a LONG time
