Sliding over on the loser's bench

... cuz we're gonna have another loser around very soon! My internet buddy Amber, who I met at LowCarbFriends, just got a verbal approval from her insurance company for WLS. I'm pretty sure she'll be having RNY. I'm so excited and happy for her! I've been a member at LCF for several years now.. joined back in 2002 when I did Atkins and lost (and then almost completely gained back) about 80 lbs. Though not everyone there is WLS-positive, there's a growing community of WLS'ers on the site. I still visit LCF because I live a low-carb lifestyle.. WLS is helping me to maintain that lifestyle. I know that this is how I have to live the rest of my life. My insulin resistance will not disappear because I had WLS, no matter how much weight I lose. My genetic predisposition to obesity will not be "cured" by WLS. I will be forever vigilant. This is the promise that I have made to myself.
