    How Is Everyone So Happy?

    I am in counseling and on antidepressants. They do nothing for me. I am not married and don't have kids. I feel so unhealthy from the abuse I put my body through, so I don't see myself having kids in the future. I am so ugly and depressed so no one will want to marry me either. I had this done because I was so afraid of getting sick after my dad was diagnosed with brain cancer. I wanted to get healthier as I pursued law school, well neither of those goals worked out. I am certain I shortened my lifespan. I made a huge mistake with this surgery. I wish it made me happy like it did for all of the people I heard about and my aunt who had it done (who now gained back half the weight she lost). A stomach transplant would be amazing even if I end up a fat cow again. Fyi... I have nothing against this surgery for those whose lives were transformed by it. I think it can be a life saving surgery for many.

    Lol, I need to find a sugar daddy to pay for plastics. jk, my bf loves me the way I am but.... I would love to fix some of my saggy skin. My boobs were immune to the weight loss for awhile but even they are shrinking and going south a bit as I get smaller. I look at my past posts on this thread and just shake my head
  3. I'm not an expert on the subject, but my ex used to put baby powder on his junk to help with chaffing after he lost 100+ lbs. Maybe that can help if the problem returns.
  4. I like this NSV and can totally relate to it!!! I also hoped to run into an exbf of mine who sometimes gave me a hard time about my weight and how much I ate (which is odd because he had gastric bypass surgery done when he weighed almost 300 lbs). Never did, but he did see pics of me on facebook and said I looked good and congratulated me on my weight loss. Maybe someday I'll run into him and rub it in his face some more. Mwahahaahaha

    5 Lb Loss, 2 Weeks In A Row!

    How exciting You must be very happy with your rapid weight loss! Good job. My doctor said 600-800 calories per day was optimal while in the losing stage. I went up to 900-1100 as I got closer to goal though. As for Protein, 60-80g per day should be your goal. Best of luck to you.

    Success But Whose Really?

    I couldn't say it better myself. You made the decision to change your life, june13sleever. The sleeve does make weight loss easier but it wasn't a free ride either to thindom. Don't sell yourself short!

    Some People Just Don't Get It

    I guess I've been lucky. I haven't faced many sabotage attempts (yet?). For the most part people I know have been very supportive and don't push food on me when I say no thank you to junk food. My mom calls me skinny but not in a "OMG YOU ARE TOO THIN YOU NEED TO EAT" type way that I hear people here often get.

    Can I Chew Gum?

    I chew gum all the time. Swallowing gum can cause some problems with the sleeve I imagine, so don't do that

    So...my Sister And I Are Aleeved

    Oh, I understand. The monotony of flavors can drive you nuts!!! Can you at the very least incorporate some "full liquids" like Protein shakes, milk, etc. in addition to broth and crystal light now?

    Starting Preop Diet Early

    I started my pre-op diet early (a few days) too because I had gained some weight beforehand . It probably didn't make a huge difference but I did feel better about myself and regained some self-control. Good for you! And good luck on quitting smoking.

    So...my Sister And I Are Aleeved

    Congrats on your new sleeve! I hope your sister feels better. VSG was my first surgery too so I also felt a lot of discomfort post-op. The gas pain lasted the longest. When can you start eating mushy foods? I remember I was so excited to eat yogurt and eggs after having nothing but liquids for a few weeks. I wouldn't recommend sneaking in food until you're ready, but you already know that. You don't want to risk getting sick (vomiting!) or hurting your new sleeve!
