I'm in a good mood, my Dad is here to renovate the upstairs bedroom so we can move the boys up their and put the baby in the smaller bedroom next to ours.  We had a busy day and got wallpaper stripped, spackling done (which we had A LOT to do), the whole in the ceiling fixed.

You might get more responses if you start an independent thread, but you can ask questions anywhere! Typically the surgeons recommend 2 weeks off work, I work part time as a school nurse so did my surgery on a vacation week so only took a couple of days off. I didn't tell anyone about my surgery other than immediate family until 2 weeks before the surgery-I didn't want anyone trying to talk me out of the surgery--but after surgery I have been an open book about it. I personally feel the need to tell people because so many struggle with weight that when the weight was falling off me I felt like I would be making other people's lives harder to say I just changed my eating habits on my own. But we did have a member here who only told her husband--not even her high school/college age kids and kept it a secret from everyone, parents, co-workers etc. It's really a matter of what you feel comfortable with.

I'm in a good mood. Did okay at the casino this weekend, and the weather is warming up.

I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this but how did you prepare for weight loss surgery at your job? I am thinking about starting the process but not sure how I will approach the topic at work. Did you just get everything scheduled and then take some time off or what? Has anyone not told their co-workers and just kept it a secret? How did that work out?
