    Gallbladder removed last week QUESTIONS!

    Yes it did! It was just rebound hunger. Ate so much the week after my gallbladder surgery lol
  6. My boyfriend and immediate family did not support my decision. I went to every appointment alone. The day of surgery, they showed up and supported me. Afterwards, they helped me a tad during recovery, but guess what? One year later...I'm down 75lbs and they are super happy for me. I am super proud of myself as well. At the end of the day, if you are unhappy with YOU...YOU have every right to do something about it. I think my boyfriend was scared I was going to change, or be too attractive and not want him anymore. If the relationship is solid before the surgery, then you should be fine. However, if you have underlying issues that have not been addressed with each other. This could unveil all that. For me, i'm a year post op and having relationship issues now. I think he is starting to feel insecure and makes little comments hinting at it here and there. I'm growing into a strong, confident person and he isn't used to it. If you want the surgery, do it. She will be forced to deal with her feelings regarding it, but I promise, it will be worth it for YOU. I don't regret it for one single moment. The way I feel right now, the progress I have made...I could not have done it on my own. The surgery changed my life. I eat healthy and work out but the surgery was the tool I didn't have to help me.

    One year post op PICS

    @Kahkeetsee The beginning is THE roughest, once you are healed and able to eat and lose the weight, it will all have been worth it! I have been doing a lot of weight lifting and using vitamin E oil and jojoba oil to help tighten. I still have some loose skin on my abdomen, legs and arms...pictures can be deceiving. I've been doing weight lifting though to combat it a little. Just stick to it! Eat healthy and exercise, take lotsss of progress pics of yourself and the scale so you can look back and be proud of yourself. You will change and grow as a person and become stronger mentally, physically and emotionally. You will be surprised at yourself. This is for YOU. YOUR experience. TAKE IT ALL IN. DO NOT LET ANYONE TAKE IT FROM YOU OR MAKE YOU FEEL BADLY. YOU DESERVE TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF AND LOVE YOURSELF. I remind myself of that everyday and it wasn't until a month ago that I feel like I've evolved into this strong bad ass. I'm un-apologetically growing into the woman I have always wanted to be. I don't regret it for a second.

    One year post op PICS

    @J San Thank you for speaking up on my behalf. A little uncomfortable to read that my progress pics would mean I could join the porn industry...just proud of my progress and have been going to the gym a lot more lately and just wanted to show my 1 year progress. Thanks for being a gentleman though!

    Worried about my wife

    I was the same way. Used to be so strong. Lost all muscle but I’ve been working out and building muscle and gaining my strength back. My boyfriend was surprised that I was getting strong again when we were wrestling. As for the aging, the extra weight filled out the face. I know a lot of people that aged a lotttt when they lost weight. I think just be honest about your concerns and offer a solution AS A TEAM and it would make her feel really good
