    Are There Any Single Sleevers Out There..

    I prepared myself for rejection...but that doesn't mean it didn't feel like I was taking a bullet. However, to the person who really cares, it won't be that big of an issue. There may still be some things to work through in regards to how heavy I used to be, but the same could be said of any issue regarding my past. I shared my experience because I don't want to see anyone lose their confidence over something like this...Do not be ashamed of what used to be...you have changed it!

    I'm appalled at what has happened to you! I mean, it was tough enough taking this from someone that I didn't really know...but to be treated like that by someone you were with for 10 years? I can't even imagine...Better things await you, my friend. Just you wait and see!

    REJECTED!

    Thank you!! No, I have not shed a tear over this...if more emotions had been involved, then maybe...but at this point I just want him to be ashamed of himself!!!

    REJECTED!

    Alright my fellow Singletons...Ya know that thing we all dread? Just happened to me....about an hour ago...Now I have only talked to this guy for two weeks or so (so it's not like heavy emotions were involved) and he made the comment that this one girl wouldn't leave him alone and when I asked what was wrong with her, he said it was that she was too big. Like 280 pounds....I asked him "Would you totally freak out if I told you I used to be that big?" and he said "No, "used to be" is used to be." I should have known this was too good to be true. Today, he saw some pictures of me when I was at my heaviest and he FREAKED OUT! He even told me "I'm freaking out, you were really large." and I told him "If you can't handle it, I understand, but you had better let me know becuase there are plenty of people that can handle it." well...we went back and forth and I was (admittedly) a little on the defensive... he asked me "How big are you now?" and I told him I was 208 lbs (77 lbs down in 4 months *woot* *woot*) and what my goal weight was and all this stuff but I just felt like he was patronizing me at this point. It was humiliating, and I have to tell you, it made me HOPPIN' MAD! I could chew ten-penny nails right now. I told him I was done with the conversation and he said "I think someone is being a little oversensetive." and I told him "well, I told you before that I had issues with this type of thing, so how do you think I should act?" and the HE said "I don't know, maybe I should just quit talking to you because I don't want to keep hurting your feelings." A real peach isn't he? I told him "No, don't you use my feelings as a scapegoat. If you can't handle how big I was, then you tell me the truth!" (like seriously...grow some balls) well he didn't say anything and I said "nevermind...whatever makes you feel better", and that was the end of it. Listen, I am a very emotional person and I am totally a cryer. But even though my feelings were hurt, the biggest thing I feel is anger! I went back to my Facebook and almost deleted every fat picture of me I could find...but then I stopped...there are memories in those pictures, and even though I was very large, I still love myself...I love myself NOW and I love myself THEN too! That large person is a part of what made me who I am. I know it sounds silly, but to someone that really cares, it won't matter all that much! This is just my little testimonial...Y'all, if I can survive that, ANYONE can! So if anything like this ever happens to you, DO NOT LET SOMEONE MAKE YOU FEEL BAD ABOUT YOURSELF!!

    February Sleevers

    Howdy all you February sleevers! How's everyone doing so far? I'm doing pretty well myself! I was sleeved on the 18th of February and so far I've lost 62 pounds...I'm probably not exercising as much as I should, I just don't have the time between the two jobs that keep me working 50 to 70 hours any given week! Any tips on exercise that works for all of you? would love to hear them! I'm happy for all of us!! From what I've seen, everyone is doing very well! Keep up the good work!

    hot yoga

    I hear ya girl! I'm down in South Texas and the heat is already coming on!
  11. I have not had any issues with vomiting since I've been sleeved, but last night I was trying to spit up some mucus and my stomach automatically just heaved once. It...hurt... well since then, I have had a dull aching pain throughout my stomach. I'm hoping I just strained the stomach muscles or something. Anyone else had a similar experience?
  12. I was sleeved on the 18th and so far I've been doing alright. I have had some stomach pain, and the gas pains that I get in there every not and then are sharp and painful, but they pass very quickly. My biggest problem and what has made me miserable is that I have fluid on my lungs from the anesthesia and it makes it very hard to take full breaths. Also, I don't know if it's still gas from the surgery, when I inhale my left shoulder feels like it's being stabbed. I'm soooo tired of only being able to sleep on my back. I've always been a side and stomach sleeper, so the only sleeping on my back combined with an arthritic condition that I have are murder!! Ok.....I'm done with my pity party now! I hope next week is better, and hope all of you are doing well!
