at first I told people. then I didn't get it done because of all the negative talk. but 2 years later here I am fixing to have Gastric Sleeve next month. And only my closest friend and my inside my home family knows this time. I am a little scared , But I think that is natural to be. I know it's going to be a big change. but to me someone who has been fat my whole life it will be worth it. I will feel better , and alot of my heath problems will be gone. I can say to you . do what you feel is right for you. and no one else. there is people out here like you and me that knows the struggles everyday of being big.as far as the eating goes I don't realy know all that yet. but I do know someone that has had it done and drinks a beer or 2 every week.. I think it mostly depends on you. what you can tolorate. feel free to add me on face book if you would like michelle chaffins. good luck in what ever decision you make..View Thread
