    SlimJill got a reaction from BayougirlMrsS in No Sex Drive/Desire after Sleeve 9 months Post Op   
    I know this topic is a little old, but thought I would throw in my experience in case it helps or hasn't been resolved yet.
    I am 22, so I was shocked when I realized after several months... I hadn't been thinking about sex, wanting it, fantasizing or anything... it took me months to even notice it was gone that's how bad it was!
    I had an epiphany one day... when I went for a checkup and my surgeon checked my Vitamins he said my Vitamin D levels were low, almost insufficient actually. I did some research and found that Vitamin D is related to libido and started to take a daily supplement until my libido came back and voila, it's back! Still not full force... but much much much improved and I think it was the lack of taking my Vitamins that caused it.

    SlimJill got a reaction from SallyH in When did you start having sex again   
    Currently I don't have a boyfriend so not really an issue for me, but I know when I tried solo 1 week after that it actually hurt to orgasm. Like my whole body must contract during an orgasm because my abdomen was hurting bad.
    But only a few days later everything felt fine and didn't hurt.

    "But you're so young! You could have just exercised and ate less..." Yes because I should have waited another 10, 20, 30 years of unhappiness and hating life until I decided to make a change... of course! Exercise and eat less, well holy hell there's a new concept I NEVER tried before!

    That my addiction is still here and I still struggle each day to control my unhealthy relationship with food.
    Surgery has no doubt helped me, I would probably be 300 + pounds right now without it instead of 175, but I still expected I would have it easier than this.

    SlimJill reacted to clc9 in How do you view overweight people now that your thin?   
    Considering how many times I've flipped from fat to thin, I feel compassion mostly.
    But it seems that we are most critical of traits we see in others that we dislike in ourselves. So I guess his disdain is a reflection of his fear of going back to being that fat guy again.

    1. I could no longer stand the taste of plain Water. it took nearly 2 years for that to diminish
    2. No matter how prepared I felt, in times of stress and crisis I still turn to food and have had to face some regain and find the will power to lose it again
    3. that there would be people right from the very start who would be saboteurs
    4. that even when people acted supportive they may not have been
    5. that i REALLY crave soda, and once I gave in I had to deal with that addiction all over again- and it has not been easy
    6. that i CAN lose weight, and that this tool is JUST that. I still have to do the work. I still have to deal with my addiction every day.

    I never used it before surgery, and tried it after and didn't get high at all. I was so disappointed. Lol
    But I don't think that is a reflection of the surgery, more a reflection of me being a first time user
