    Default Weight Loss Surgery

    I'm having it on Feb. 28th. Have any of you had it? Do you have any really great recipes you'd like to share? I'm looking for a support forum if anyone has any suggestions. I'd love to hear anything/everything you're willing to share.

    I have a friend who had it and did well, but I don't know what her meals are like. My brother's friend did it and unfortunately he's had issues, but he didn't stop smoking either! I think his issues are brought on by his own habits.

    Good luck to you!

    My stepmom did it and she is so thankful that she did. She looks awesome and she is so happy. I don't have any suggestions for you, but I wanted to say congrats on doing it and making the decision. I know it isn't easy to do or an easy decision to make. I hope you do as splendidly as she did!

    Thank you all for your words of encouragement. I had the surgery on Tuesday. The surgeon said it went super smooth, one of the easiest he's done. I've lost 7 pounds so far, but I'm on a liquid diet for 2 weeks so I expect I'll loose a good bit during that time. I'm still in a good amount of pain but I'm at least able to sit up. I can sit at my desk for about an hour or on the couch with my feet up for a couple hours. I've been scrapping my journey, you can see my pages so far in my gallery. I plan to keep it up.... it's good to be reminded what I've been through so I won't allow myself to get into this position again.

    Thanks for the update. I did a page for my sister that had the gastric sleeve done for her 1 year anniversary. She is VERY happy!! The only thing I have really noticed is that she looks older now, much older.

    Here is the page I did for my sister
