Hello everyone! I just wanted to share some good stuff with everyone, since it makes me feel good to watch everyone else have success! Having 6 kids it makes it difficult if not impossible to get a night out. Last night, I arranged a sitter and my husband and I planned to go out with some friends of ours. I was getting ready and decided (after stressing out big time) that the clothes that I had were not "club" appropriate. I was ready to cancel and was almost in tears. My hubby said why don't we go get you something to wear? I said, well, there are no plus size shops close by, we will have to drive out of our way, so we did. I walked in the store, and picked up a shirt and the skirt in a size 26, (hoping it would fit, pre-op I was a 32). I went to the fitting room, and IT FIT.... AND IT WAS LOOSE. I probably could have squeezed into a 24!!!!! That is awesome, but not the end of my story! So we are at the club, and decide to club hop (I was the designated driver and drinking water) we walked to the next place, and I wasn't winded, I was wearing heels, and felt fabulous!!!! I managed to dance, walk, and have a fantastic time and I wasn't tired, I was feeling great! I may have only (and I say "only" because of the long journey ahead of me) lost 36 pounds, but the confidence and physical and emotional change that has taken place is AMAZING, and I am soooo pleased with my decision to have the surgery... It saved my life in more ways than I can count. So, to all those pre-op candidates that are considering surgery... GO FOR IT, YOU WON'T REGRET IT! To those who are on this side and stuck.... keep at it, and reward the small goals and triumphs! :) Have a great day all!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
