Hello! I am a stepmom too and love the pictures of your family. I added you as a friend; can you add me too? (My profile and blog are private, so I don't think you can see them until you do.) Hope you are doing well today!
I was just reading the Jan. chat for gastric sleevers and came across your post. I have to tell you I love your screen name! :) I too am a step-mom and love it. I had my sleeve on 11/21/11 and am doing well. I went to JC Penney's on Christmas Eve and bought a pair of size 18 jeans as my normal 24 were falling off - literatly. I was so excited. The scale doesn't seem that I would be that small yet - but I will take it none the less. :)
