Hi Diane, I was on the cusp of having a vertical sleeve gastrectomy, when literally the day before scheduled surgery, I felt serious misgivings and googled WLS regrets.  What I read was so alarming, that I called my surgeon's office and cancelled my surgery.  I'd rather be overweight living with the comorbidities I know than be skeletal and dying with those I might acquire!!!

Hi Diane,
My name is Mary.  I'm the moderator for the Wellsphere weight loss community.  Thanks for joining us.  I know the fight to lose weight and keep it off is a tough one.
If you're new to Wellsphere take a few minutes to explore the site.  There are tons of great articles on everything from sports to healthy eating to relaxation.  If you're looking for something specific the search feature is great.  For instance you can use it to find healthy barbeque tips, information on accupuncture and spinning classes along with hundreds of other things.
Feel free to post questions, comments and information.  This is truly an interactive community of people who want to live healthier lives.  We all work together to support one another.
I just wanted you to know that we're here to help you attain your goals.  If there is anything I can help with let me know.  And welcome to Wellsphere.
