If you’re part of the weight loss surgery community, no doubt you’ve run across two really fantastic people: Dr. Timothy Katzen and Sarah Holbrook (SarahWillBe Skinny). Sarah was the recipient of the first WLSFA plastic surgery grant, and Dr. Katzen was the amazing doctor who performed her surgery. Both are really positive and really active members of the wls community, and I couldn’t be happier to hear that they’re being featured on a new TLC Program called “The Real Skinny.”
The show is set to air on Monday, March 12th at 10:00pm EST. March 12th just happens to be the three year anniversary of Sarah’s weight loss surgery, and she’s been such an inspirational part of our community – it the show will highlight her experience with weight loss surgery, excess skin, and plastic surgery with Dr. Katzen. Mark your calendar to watch the show and support these two fantastic members of our community. Congrats to you both, and I can’t wait to see the show!

The lovely Amy at OLDBOOKNEWLOOK on YouTube! From Amy’s Channel:
I am a musician, writer, and teacher. I love to dance and do just about anything outdoors in the summer. I hate the cold but I live in Maine – go figure! I’m excited about starting a new chapter in my life and reclaiming all the things I love to do but haven’t been able to because of obesity. I am working hard to develop the skills learned through my bariatric program to help keep the weight off for the long-term after surgery and help me live a healthy life! I’m using this channel to document my journey, connect with others in the WLS community, learn as much as possible about this new life I am starting, and to help support anyone I can who is going through a similar journey – or even just thinking about it!

For those of you who listen to The Backstage Pass Radio Program, you probably know that I often run a segment called “The WLS Lovely.” I have been extremely fortunate to have such a great community of supporters, and this in my way of giving back. The WLS Lovely Feature is a way for others with a YouTube page and blog to get the friends and support they need.
In the past the feature has been a live interview on the show, but I’ve also added another segment here on the blog. If you look on the right hand side, you’ll see a new widget I’ve created that showcases a WLS Lovely for each month. To kick-start this new widget, I’ve highlighted the lovely and gorgeous PatrinaStrippedBare for the month of July! I would love for you to show your support and subscribe to her, and also share her page with others.
Interested in becoming featured? Please drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your YouTube page ad/or blog. I will add everyone’s name to a raffle and randomly draw a name for the next month’s feature. http://www.youtube.com/patrinastrippedbare
As a little sidenote: I’ll be away from July 20th until August 2nd. I won’t have a lot of access to email and the internet, so don’t fret if you don’t hear back from me. I’m just enjoying the sun in the Dominican Republic!
