    danpantz got a reaction from Auntvick in Did you keep your surgery a secret?   
    I told my closest friends and family before the surgery, none of them said anything negative.
    Once i hit 150 lbs lost i started to tell people i had wls. Anyone who even questions it gets the same response. "Did you see what i looked like before? Id have this surgery again tomorrow if i had too."
    Miserable people try to inflict there misery on the people around them. Either cut them out, or overwhelm them with your new found happiness.

    danpantz got a reaction from TwinsMama in Others Negative Opinions Making Me Question Myself....   
    Ive been dealing with peoples negative opinions of me my entire life. There was a point where i stopped caring about the opinion other people had of me, because really, what do they really know about me. Only my opinion of myself is what matters.
    I told my family and they were all supportive. I told my closest friends and they were as well. I didnt tell anybody i wouldnt tell personal things too and it worked out.
    Now that im 160 lbs lighter, when people ask i tell them. Nobody can question it because of the results. And even if they did i probably would tear them apart about how wrong they are.

    Hi, my name is DJ and im 22 years old. I was sleeved on 2/11/13 and im down 128 lbs and down 153 total from my starting weight of 357. I was always a big kid growing up. I remember being to overweight to play pop warner football, Which is a great thing to tell a ten year old that hes to fat to do an activity that would be beneficial. I was picked on constantly as a child and a teenager for my weight. I developed thick skin and learned how to deal with a situation like that through trial and error. But its not fun being the least attractive person growing up. I'm a middle child to two sisters, one older and one younger. Both were captain of the cheer-leading team, my older sister went on to become a professional cheerleader, so I'm the one in the middle of that. All 265 of me in high school.
    I became an introvert and found friends who saw beyond the fat, so it never really became an issue to me. I moved away from home after dropping out of college because i had no drive what-so-ever, and this is where i gained most of my weight. I was probably depressed, but i was smoking so much weed at the time i couldn't even realize it. I partied for a year straight before i ran out of money, and thankfully my parents let me move back in out of the kindness of their hearts. Under one condition, i needed another job, and to go see a doctor about my weight.
    I did both, I got a job working overnights in a UPS warehouse. Not only is it a paid 4 hour a night workout. But for 50 dollars a month i got a full health plan. I used that to start going to the Mount Auburn Weight Management Center where i learned about the sleeve. With there support and the support of my mother, and the weight i lost pre-op, i was able to be sleeved.
    Best decision of my life. I'm a completely different person than i was. I love working out now, where i never would have before. My confidence is way up and my drive to succeed has returned. Im ready for the next part of my life to begin as a former fatty.

    danpantz got a reaction from TES in FEBRUARY SLEEVERS 2013....how you doing after you've been Sleeved   
    So lets see. Today was my 6 month checkup, im down over 150 lbs from my heaviest and 122 since my surgery on 2/11/13. No regrets. Im happy again. Still need to lose another 30 though.
    Im still waiting for the big stall to hit but i have been on top of my diet and Water intake. Plus i got to the gym 5 times a week for 90 minutes and play hockey the other two nights. I also work 5 hours a night doing physical labor at a ups warehouse and have been sweating my soul out everynight this summer.
    Ive never been in better shape than i am right now.

    Lets see, right now i work in a UPS warehouse overnights. Its tough work but they gave me health insurance for 50 dollars a month which paid for my sleeve. And they are paying for my college, and i make a decent wage for a part time job.
    I was unmotivated when i graduated high school so i never gave college a real shot even though i was very smart in school. I've decided its now time to do it, So I'm going for my bachelors in biology, and hopefully into a medical school to become a dr of some sort.
