When I was in The Nuthouse, many years ago, I met a girl named Carey. We weren't particularly close or anything, and we lost track of each other after I left. Life went on and then, a few years ago, thanks to Yahoo Groups, we found each other again. About a year or so ago, she said she was going to have gastric bypass surgery. I guess she'd had some other weight loss surgery in the past and it didn't work well, so she was going to have another one done. Anyway, I haven't heard much about her outcome (anything at all, truth be told). I don't know if she really hasn't lost much weight (which IS possible, if you don't do what you're supposed to do) or what, but I wonder how it worked out for her. I don't want to ask, because, what if it didn't work? I've seen pictures of her and I know she had to be close to 300 pounds, so I don't want to ask and have her have to say, Well, I didn't follow the plan and it was a waste of my time. That would just piss me off, especially since she's on disability and I'm pretty sure my tax dollars were the ones that paid for the surgery. I guess that's kind of shallow, but this is my place to be honest.
