    Evil evil evil, no matter what you say after... Careful, what you are doing is worse than eating solids... All that bitterness and hate inside cant be good for your sleeve.

    I'd like to reiterate what Susan just posted. This isn't her personal position. It's one that all the admins/mods and I have agreed on. I hope we can all get along and play nicely together. VST is a source of support and I'll never allow a few to ruin it for many.

    Amy, you can post about whatever you like. You don't need to do a search or follow anyone's criteria. There are new people on this forum joining daily. I think those who are so bored or annoyed with the topics need to LOG OFF! Whining about whining is just as annoying. I personally like to come on the gastric sleeve forum to talk about the gastric sleeve and all it entails. I'm not sure what people expect.
    If each topic were only talked about once....well....I think we'd all be done here.

    True Laura, it's a Forum not a Library. I can understand why people want to discuss and not just search. This is after all a new frontier for many others every day.

    This post is like all post, everyone has their own opinion. So just look at the post you want to look at or answer the ones you want to answer. No matter how annoying or stupid a post is everyone has feelings and should not be afraid to post whatever they want.

    I agree to a point. I like what dean says about allowing for some anxiety in newbies. And post opers. I mean this is MAJOR surgery! Scary stuffs.
    Now I feel a little bit afraid to post about my concerns post op though.
    I've seen some really annoying posts such as "zomg I'm like a week out and I can't eat this buffet! crap I wish I'd never gotten surgery!" On one hand, I want to understand and an be supportive. On the other hand I'm like -----> o.O Really?

    I also think, as annoying as these posts may be, it isn't my place to regulate what people ask. If it's a topic I have seen numerous times, I don't open it. People are allowed to have their own conversations. Live and let live!

    "Why lie about having weight loss surgery, especially to someone that is going through the same struggle that you once went through? We should not be ashamed to announce to those who want to attain a better health the tools that we have used to achieve that."
    Just because someone is overweight too, does not mean they will understand or even agree about WLS. I don't like the negative comments, so unless I a sure this will,be someone that could help the other person, I rather keep to myself what I did.
    Not everyone is supportive. My own family has made so much fun of my obesity issues, the last thing I'd do is explain them a gad damn thing.

    I've always thought this as well. I try to help people all the time, but I have run up on this attitude more than once.
    Alot of people on the liquid diet, whether they are preop or post op, are hungry and sensitive. It's a crazy time, those few weeks. Weird things are happening inside one's body. All those hormones are being released that have been stored up for a long time. I've had people want to yank out my eyes right through the internet, then the next day they are adding me to their "friends" list.

    Pre-op I talked to a couple of nurses I work with the first thing they say is your not big enough. I am big enough. I know it's trying to be a compliment but that's how I felt for years and I just kept getting bigger and bigger and I know it's-partially my eating. Now that I said something there a discussion on how all u got to do is diet and exercise. And how I know someone who stopped drinking soda and sugar and they lost weight. I stopped eating all red meat and pork and I cut down on turkey and bread. I haven't drank soda in years and I try to keep my juice down. Even discussing that people still seem to feel I must be doing something wrong and its me. Sometimes I feel like that's all I need but I feel this surgery will give me a boost. I guess until I have the surgery I will know what to say but for now I think it's better not to say anything.

    Hey Kaila
    And a couple more things you have on your side because of your age ...you haven't had 30 years of bad eating habits ingrained in your psyche or 30 years of body set points that get higher higher sabotaging your attempts to lose weight.
    As far as I'm concerned you have bee given an awesome gift!! So happy for you!

    Doing this at 21 I think was the best option for me! A family friend said that she too wish she had this surgery at my age because her youth would've been so much better instead of having it later in life. I think her comment about it solidified my choice to have this surgery.
    Luckily, only being 13 days post-op, I haven't had one of those moments where I thought: What did I do to myself? It's more like: oh man, I miss food and can't wait to get through this to get to soft healthy foods. I did have one day where I got really emotional, but it's passed. Only time will tell if I'm super happy with my choice!

    I'm almost 4 months out and yes I would definitely do it again. 66 pounds gone and no complications. It wasn't the easiest for me right after surgery, but I would do it all over again!

    Hi Kaila,
    Oh how I wish I would have had this option when I was 20. I cannot imagine how different my life would have been! I'm 49 now --- with so many regrets! BUT, I do have a second chance at the second half of my life and that is awesome.
    Good Luck!!

    Yes, we definitely have this it is called informed consent... the problem is when people hear what they want to hear and have a "it will never happen to me" attitude. (And thankfully it won't to most)
