A day that will live in infamy…. well for me anyway…as it applies to my weight loss surgery life.
What happened you may ask?
Well, even if you didn’t ask, you know I’m going to tell you.
I was in Los Angeles, California attending the ten year anniversary event for ObesityHelp.com and I received the news the Weight Loss Surgery Channel had officially launched. The secret is out!
A few months ago I was contacted by Craig Thompson and his wife Leslie regarding a new site they created for us…the weight loss surgery masses. How awesome that I would be priviledged enough to talk to WLS post-ops on camera about their weight loss surgery journeys. Craig is a seasoned post-op veteran himself and he is certainly the only person I know who is eleven years out. (He had weight loss surgery 11 years ago)
After understanding Craig and Leslie’s vision we went straight to work finding WLS post-ops that had stories to share. To say the experience was awesome would be the understatement of the century. Craig has provided a platform for the ultimate resource for WLS success education….learning from the journeys of others that have traveled this road before you.
I am a firm believer that if you want to learn how to succeed at anything, you should seek out those who have gone before you and ask them how. This belief has served me well and I hope you will join me and my guests talking about their stories on Weight Loss Surgery Journeys.
To see this labor of love….
Weight Loss Surgery Journeys on the Weight Loss Surgery Channel. The first show is with my dear friend Debra Flores….an incredible woman who had a tough time with a VBG but got it all straightened out with revision surgery.
Oh, and make sure to check out all the programs on the site. Much more to follow on this!
p.s.On the next post I promise to share my experiences and pictures from the Obesity Help Los Angeles ten year anniversary event!
