I thought this week that I’d […]

You Might Be An Addict

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard the following in the WLS community.

I Should Have Stopped At ONE!!!

I should have stopped at one …
How many times have we said THIS in our lives.
Not just after surgery, but before as well.

Last night … I had a bit of a binge.
