    Here to help

    Hi guys I had my BPD/DS surgery on the 9th of Feb, and i am down 167lbs, since starting the whole process in November last year..I want to to the best i can to help and assist anyone going through this process, So please...if you want to get in touch please do so.
  2. Its no secret how happy i am 6 months post op, just by the way i feel and move, and just live...Yes i still have a stretch ahead of me till all the weight is off, and then plastic surgery..But i wanna share something that happened at work today. I work in a corporate environment and there are many people from all walks of life on the floor i work on, One in particular is a very attractive blonde lady who is a yoga instructor in her free time...Needless to say, we as men (Yes ladies, we are primitive animals) here at the office tend to sneak a peak every time she walks around. So i was walking out of the building and she was in front of me, and all of the sudden stops dead in her tracks, turns around and says to me "I just want you to know, you look amazing...All the girls in the office have been talking and we are really curious"...So being the more confident man i am now, i told her if she wants to join me for lunch (Which was where i was heading) I will tell her all about it..Which she did and i told her my whole story. So to anyone pre or post op who are in two minds, or are struggling...Its small things like these...Be strong, be focused and be positive

  4. Hi everyone, I am Andrew from South Africa, I had my surgery on the 9th of Feb and I am down 76kg (167lbs) since this whole journey started in November last year... This has changed my life so much, I have never been shy or an introvert, and have had alot of success in my life professionally and personally... But since the weight has come off, and still going... My feet have not yet touched the ground... This desicion was by far the greatest one I have made.. In 33 years of existence, I am truly alive now... I have been going through the stories and photos from you guys and girls... And you all look amazing.

    To answer the question about why it went in that direction... It went that way because, the word "classless" was slung in my general direction, so why not then play to the expectation? Now "immature" has also been slung... You people seem to know a lot about me.

    I keep harping on it because all the fresh comments and criticisms on the nickname keep coming from the 60+ peanut gallery... I certainly did not plan it like that, these are just the facts.

    Anyway, I have now grown tired of the nickname issue, anyone else who feels the need to hate, be my guest, anyone else who actually sees value in the original post, you have my attention.

    They need to update the "things to look out for on the interweb" document at the retirement village.. Education is key before firing up the modem.

    yes..... but think about the fact that most of us don't really have "fat" pictures.... we are normally the people taking the pic so we won't be in them... or standing behind some one or some thing..... I tell everyone starting out.... have someone take before pics.... it's important because you won't see your changes in the mirror... i know i didn't... but pic don't lie.... we have all been where you were... but good news.... your not there anymore.... 167lbs.... holy mother ... So take those pictures... and be proud... i bought dry erase markers and wrote messages to my self on the bath room mirror.. saying you are beautiful, you are worthy, you can do anything..... I'm now thinking about changing my name to LuvRofagreatCunninglinguist........ i mean who doesn't love a good Linguist.. Right..... lolololo. Apparently not everyone on here is into linguistics Thank you on both accounts lol

    Thanks Daveo, yeah look I just want to spread positivity and tell my story, but then the senior citizens noticed something completely different and had now felt the need to go there, and then a bandwagon was jumped on by the prudes and people with no sense of humor...ah well, thanks for being a normal person

    I am 167lbs down, and not at goal yet, I should be on goal by December or January next year. But yeah the goal is to look good, I don't concern myself too much with the digits.

    Thanks for having a sense of humor yeah we are chatting, so I don't see why we can't eat food again sometime in each other's company.

    We are chatting now, and I'm sure there will be more lunches lol... Yeah she was very caring, and she admitted she wanted to tell me a while back but was hesitant because she didn't want to be intrusive, in case I was maybe ill, I found that really funny... She responded very well when I told her about surgery, I hope to educate more people about this "easy way out" surgery.
