    PrayingForWeightLoss got a reaction from GreenTealael in The Thrill Is Gone   
    I watched my 600lbs life too! Obsessively. One year post op and I don't watch tv that much. I have basic cable now just to catch up on local new here and there. Otherwise I am walking during my spare time and letting our youngest daughter tell me what she wants to do with me.

    PrayingForWeightLoss got a reaction from kah1213 in Has anyone kept their surgery a secret?   
    18 months post op and over 80lbs lost. Only my husband knows to this day. My body, my choice. I don't discuss my dental surgery, hysterectomy, or any other illness with anybody. I had been obese for most of my adult life and having one more meaningless, hurtful or back-handed advice/opinion ( if I had disclosed my surgery) was the last thing I wanted. When people ask how I did it, I tell them "...lifestyle changes" which is true. I am a private person so I shut the conversation right there. I don't regret keeping it to myself. I know and understand that sharing might help de-stigmatize weight loss surgery. I chose not to bear that burden (for lack of a better word).

    PrayingForWeightLoss got a reaction from DKG_WLJ in Married people....8 out of ten of us will get divorced within 2 years   
    The end of a marriage is often very saddening and can be devastating to some. For me, when I was obese, I had major (still have to some degree) body image issues. Since being sleeved and accompanying weight loss, I am as horny as horny could be. When I say , " I should have had this surgery sooner," my husband always adds, "Oh yeah, this should have been done 2 years ago." I say that because of the health benefits and him for sexual reasons. This surgery has brought intimacy back to our honeymoon stages. I hope we stay that way because I intend to grow old with him. farting and all.

    PrayingForWeightLoss got a reaction from Hop_Scotch in Secret sleevers?   
    I kept it to myself. Sleeved July last year. Only my husband knows. I worked with a woman who had a sleeve done and my coworkers judged and talked about this woman in such a negative way. There were comments like, " I would never mutilate my body for a bit of vanity." I just decided I don't want the burden of educating these women about WLS. I am my priority and I am so happy I made this decision. When people ask me how I list weight I tell them I made drastic changes about my health which is true.

    After goal, all the sex and sizzle of rapid weight loss and comments are gone. Things get normal. My interests change and evolve over the years.
    Things that I used to do.
    large amounts of alcohol and food at parties/holidays laying around the house Watching the food network and my 600 pound life going to bariatric group negative people in my life - Poof they are gone people pleasing

    PrayingForWeightLoss got a reaction from Michelleintheoc1 in Stigma with WLS   
    Tracy I can certainly understand how this can be very annoying when you have people giving you unsolicited advice and comments. As someone who has been obese most of my life, I have out up with so much "diet advice " without even asking for it. I had a sleeve done July last year and went down from 233 to now 156lbs. The only person who knows I heard it done is my husband. I didn't want to deal with ignorant comments from people. When people ask me how I lost the weight I just tell them I took charge of my health which is true, I quickly shut down those conversations because I don't owe anybody an explanation. Keep pressing with your goals and take charge of your health. You already on track. Best wishes with your surgery.

    How are you doing 2017 sleevers? I was sleeved July 28, 2017. Weighed 233 lbs preop. Now weighing 158. My life has been totally transformed. I am now a workout junkie, eat so well and have reversed insulin resistance completely. I am in a happy place.

    PrayingForWeightLoss got a reaction from allwet in Sagging skin concerns and looking old.   
    I has VSG in July last year and I have lost 70 pounds from 233lbs. I don't have much of saggy skin but I sometimes almost trip on my boobs when I am walking. I can't afford plastics so that's how I will live from now on. Like what most people are saying here, the health trade off is huge. I am almost to the point of losing 100% of my excess weight. I still would not trade that with firmer non-droopy boobs any day! I now eat healthy, exercise everyday and just feel so much happier with my life and my health.
