Default i'm so happy i could just cry!!!

over the years, we've had our share of tragedy in this forum - people have been in comas after their surgery, there've been a couple of deaths as well. We've all weathered changed relationships [some for the worse], life changes [including deaths among loved ones], and all sorts of illnesses.

and now - at the end of 2011 - we have jilly's baby coming AND angela's wedding!!!

congratulations ladies!!! and much happiness!!!!

We hold each other up through the bad times and cheer each other on during the good times!

As I always tell the new comers, this is a great place to come for support, to help others and get help by doing so!


The glass of water is what it is,
it's only our own perception that tells us
whether or not it's half empty or half full...
it's a Choice!!!

Yay! I'm so happy to hear the good news! I only get a chance to come here sporadically, but I love all the familiar "faces". The year seems to be rounding out on a good note. Hubby and I have had troubles this year, but we just finally got our medical insurance back (which means surgery is “back on"), and I was offered a part time job sewing Greek letter gear in my college town (which is amazing because I can do it at home on my own schedule) - and that will really help with our financial troubles.
Woohoo , lets finish out this year with something to celebrate!

With journey of over 175 pounds to lose, I'm losing my worst half.
If my plans go through, this is also a journey of gastric bypass surgery from referral and beyond:
