    YAY, Patrina! So happy for you! This will be excellent documentation for everyone contemplating surgery – as well as nice reminders of what all of us went through. I love this idea!

    I am so excited to watch your journey. It has been an amazing and awesome ride since my surgery in August and my life just keeps getting better every day! To watch your story weekly will be just incredibly inspiring to all those awaiting surgery. Thanks for taking all of us with you! Congratulations on starting your new life!

    THANK YOU for doing this Patrina! You have captured the emotions of the moment(s) so well! I am only a couple of months behind you on this journey, so these videos will be invaluable to me. And thank you to BTV for bringing Patrina to us!

    Congrats to you and some advice – start increasing protein and decreasing sugar NOW (assuming you’re not already, that is). It will be easier later. You don’t want to be recovering from surgery and going through carb withdrawl at the same time (yuck).

    I had RNY January 2009 and now I go next week for plastic surgery consultation. Incredible journey.

    Best wishes,

    As a Guelph patient myself (1st appointment next month) it will be so nice seeing you go through this experience first to put me at ease and help me know what to expect. Thank you for doing this. I love your vlogs and am always excited to see the next one. Keep up the good work.
