  1. Just found out I can't have kids. Miss food so much right now. I almost regret surgery because I really want to curl up in a dark room and binge until I pop.

      (((((((BIG HUG)))))))


      so sorry to hear your news but both MissMAc and OKC had some great options to consider down the road....

      Thanks, everyone. I'm doing the m&m wallow today, and vowing to pull myself out of the dumps and start figuring out what I want to actually DO about it tomorrow. We already started talking possible donor eggs, but I'm going to a fertility center in the area to find out more about maybe how much time I have left to decide while that's still a viable option.

      Good luck young lady, this isn't easy and requires the same dedication you brought into this surgery. The advancements in this area of medicine are staggering. The last time I did a legislative project on this was 10 years ago, my GF showed me how much advancement has been made since then.

    Oh wow, that must have felt AWESOME, @@OKCPirate!
  3. If a guy is going to have a problem with it, I prefer to find out as soon as possible...I'm 38 and running out of time to waste on guys who are going to get weird on me, lol. I usually bring it up on the first date if it doesn't come up in conversation before we meet...just casually. Like going bowling and he goes, "You want fries?" and I'll say, "Oh, no thank you! I had weight loss surgery, need to stay away from those" Sometimes it backfires and the guys get weird, sometimes - surprise - they'll go, "Oh me too!". Sometimes - true story - they'll ask a bunch of overly intimate questions about the state of your skin and how it felt to be "so huge", then they'll disappear. Better to know now than a month in after you start to catch feelings, right?

    I have a new one (for those aware of the old one, I finally got that weirdo out of my house, lol...it took him 3 days to find another girl to mooch off of). Tried a new site and got a response before I finished setting my profile up. He seemed nice! I wanted to be fair because I'm still not thin and my first picture was just my face, so I asked him to go look again since I'd added full body pics and make sure I was what he was expecting. He said he did and it was great! He really liked me! We didn't talk a lot but kept in touch over the course of about a month while both of us had stuff going on and didn't have time. Finally we were supposed to meet on Saturday. I got there, paid for parking, went into the pretentious coffee shop of his choosing, paid for my overpriced "flower scented" coffee and texted him to let him know I was sitting by the front door. He sends back a message saying he's not interested, and pretty much accused me of trying to lie about what I look like, and he was calling me out on it for my benefit of course. The whole thing was a setup to embarrass me because that's somehow supposed to help me magically be a size 0?!? Slap in the face after losing this much weight, and the fact that this 40 year old loser put the time and effort into pulling this off just astounds me. What gets me more than anything is that this jerk is supposed to be a teacher. How does he treat the chubby girls in his class? Between that, the weirdos, and the "sure I want a relationship and a family! Except I really just want a booty call and btw I had a vasectomy" guys, I can't do it anymore. Deleted all my online profiles. I'm tired, lol.

    Maybe I should just get more cats....

    Ah, I'm sorry - yeah, that dude was just looking for an out for whatever reason, and would've hit you with anything that seemed like a viable excuse in his head to make it your fault. You're beautiful and you deserve better! As for the cats, well, over the summer I met a great guy. I thought he liked me back. Around that time, I found a very tiny kitten and was hand raising it. He was playing with the kitten and about to head out for work so I knew I wouldn't see him for a while (he was military) and instead of just saying, "Will you be coming back or is this it?" I said, "So I'm kind of at that intersection where I either need a relationship or more cats to keep this guy company." He puts his arm around me, says, "Don't get more cats...you're a great girl, you'll find someone." To add insult to injury, not 20 minutes after he left my neighbor's granddaughter showed up at my front door with another stray.

    I don't think it was meant to be an insult

    There was a hilarious meme on Facebook a while back about that - the conclusion to why we're still single? We're overqualified!

    Amount of skin removed?

    Thanks! It sounds like I still have a lot of researching to do. It's funny, when I started I thought, "I'll be happy to be under 300". Then, "maybe I can get under 200". Now it's, "why not be as close to normal as possible?!?"

    Piercing headache after strenuous exercise

    Sorry for the delayed response - I thought I answered but didn't. It seems that it mostly is a hydration issue. I was hitting my Water goal earlier in the day but not drinking much in the evening around gym time. I'm trying to do better with this and noticed it doesn't happen as often or as much. We're also playing with my blood pressure meds, I needed to step down again.
  9. Just curious - for those who have had skin removal, do you know how much it weighed? I know the variation is going to be pretty wide from person to person, just trying to process in my head at what point I might want to start heading down this path (like, when I have 20 pounds left to lose, is there a good chance that's skin and I should probably start thinking about getting some consultations, etc).

    There is poop and I cant poop

    Glad you dealt with it! I ended up with a fissure early on and it was probably in the top 5 most painful things ever. I'm about 15 months out and still take 2 fiber gummies and a fish oil every morning. The combo helps keep things moving without sending me in the other direction.
  11. Stalled for a couple of months, but people are commenting on body changes and I got into a smaller size the other day. My jeans are all getting too big. So weird the way our bodies work!

    Kathy - he's not!!!!! I can't make him leave. It's seriously getting to the "get the police involved" point, he's got some mental health issues I just wasn't aware of. At this point, I'm seriously considering moving and leaving him there, lol. @@roundisashape is he gone yet?? i hope so 1 month is one too many months keep up the great weight loss good luck kathy
  13. Anyone know anything about MCT oil powders? Or the Truenutrition brand that lets you mix your own protein stuff? I've been reading and thought about going 95% whey / 5% MCT in a protein blend, but haven't found much anecdotal information about people trying it post WLS

    1. OutsideMatchInside


      I have never used a powder, only liquid, sorry.

    2. roundisashape


      Did the liquid seem to make any difference for you - either for weight loss, energy, metabolic stuff? I went ahead and ordered a 90/10 whey to MCT blend and am going to give it a try.

    Oddly, lettuce was one of the first veggies (other than canned green beans) that I could eat from the minute I was allowed that texture - but it IS awfully fibrous so I can see where you might have issues! I'd wait another few weeks and try again
