    HamZam got a reaction from brneyedgirl42 in January/February 2018 Sleevers   
    I too am worried about the post-op pain but know it will be short lived. If anything I am more concerned about knowing how to live right afterward. I am excited thinking about being skinny, looking in my closest of black clothes and actually find something I WANT to wear and can fit into that has color and style. Don't worry too much on the little things and think about all the good things that will come with having the surgery. I am pretty sure that will get you excited :-)

    As a self-pay patient as well, I can understand your concern regarding the cost. I briefly considered Mexico but opted not to for several reasons. I personally know two individuals who had bipass and one passed away within 24 hrs of her surgery the other 3 months later - both had surgeons in the US one in NY and one in FL. I'm convinced the surgeon's reputation and the patients adherence to the "rules" are the biggest factor in success. It was extremely important for me to trust the surgeon. With that said, I encourage you to visit www.drwizman.com. I get absolutely nothing from referring you to the site. The site offers easy to understand information about the various surgeries as well as Dr. Wizman's track record. He frequently speaks at medical seminars and trains other Dr.'s on how to perform the various surgeries. If you are willing to go to Mexico, perhaps you would be willing to travel to Florida. The cost of the surgery is $10,600 all inclusive. One of the highest recommended surgeons at a seriously competitive price. I’m sure this is a little higher than what you might pay in Mexico, but it’s $5k below other surgeons in our area. I know we all have different financial situations, but financing is available even to those of us with the worst credit. I hope this helps. Good luck!

    For me, it is all about mobility. I want to walk...and walk...and walk...and walk some more. I would love to travel to Yosemite National Park and hike in to see the waterfalls. I want to take a trip to Italy (made much more affordable if I don't need to purchase a second plane seat for myself) and walk all over Venice and florence. I want to enjoy a day out with family and friends and be able to keep up with everyone. I was thinking of creating something like a vision board with the places I want to travel and start a travel savings account.

    I would also love to treat myself to adult swimming lessons. I love exercising in the Water, but I never really learned to swim. I do water walking and jogging and aerobics now. What I am realizing as I type this is that there is actually no reason I couldn't take lessons now...I just feel very uncoordinated and would get out of breath easily. Would be great to have a little more energy and stamina.

    I want to do kick boxing and cross fit. I don't have the energy to do it now but I would love to get to that fitness level someday. I have a goal dress, it's been waiting 8 years for me to wear it, that's when and why I bought it. I plan to wear it in 2018

    I have several things I am looking forward too. But right now I am enjoying the ones that I have already hit.
    I hit ONEDERLAND this month which was my first dream. Haven't been under 200 in 10 years.
    The other thing that I have wanted to do for so long is hike. I went on my first hike last week and it was awesome!!! I plan to do many more in the future, so many places to see.
    As for clothes right now, even though I have gone from a size 26 to a 16. I'm still not ready to buy much clothes yet since I'm not at goal. But I am so looking forward to a whole new wardrobe. (little secrete here, I have been buying smaller sizes of clothes when my favorite stores have sales, one side of my closet is my will fit in soon side. LOL..)
    The biggest thing I want, is to look like a girl when riding my motorcycle and not like a fat dude! That is what I am looking forward too the most. I have a pair of black leather pants that I want to get into.

    Right now I am living my dream of designer and luxury brand clothing.
    I did VS last year when I was still losing, they are good for panties but the bras are not the best. I love the workout clothes, they are really good and priced fairly. VS also has great sales. I wear a 34G so I have to go high end to find that. I still buy some of their bras that I just use to be sexy not to function.
    Last year I purchased a lot of fast fashion. This year I am treating myself to the brands that I want and spending the money to rebuild my wardrobe. Cashmere sweaters, designer dresses (the cut is really worth it), and more expensive jeans. Everything I am buying now, even if I lose more, since they are high quality well known brands with good construction, I can either resale, or I can have tailored if I really love it.
    I am enjoying using personal shoppers.
    Now I just need the temp to drop so I can enjoy my fall wardrobe.

    Rides at the fair, cute scrubs not big boxy scrubs that r available in my size, being comfy in seats at concerts, buying something sexy to wear to for my husband, finding gym cloths that fit and dont hang on me or squeeze me to death,taking less pills every morning, and having the energy to keep up with my 5 children, to play with them like i want to

    I agree completely bro! I am sick of having to pay extra for "Big and Tall" and not having a whole lot of selection! I also want to be able to fit in the rides at Busch Gardens again and be able to ride roller coasters with the kids!! Wife and I also have a cruise scheduled for June 2018 that we have to fly to Seattle for. I am looking forward to being able to get into a seat and have a little bit of room to move around, rather than just barely being able to fasten the seat belt! I am looking forward to being healthier and living longer without knee pain, back pain, hypertension, or a fatty liver!!! Sorry @celticNgel I just can't see myself going to Victorias Secret and getting a nice bra and panty set unless it was for the wife, she would get downright medieval for any other reason!

    I look forward to being able to run a 5k! Also to be able to immerse fully into intimacy with a partner without wondering all the thoughts a husky gentleman thinks up. Shopping at a regular store and being able to get things on sale!!

    I look forward to not breaking down when I look into the mirror. To not feel invisible in a crowded room. For a kind man to take the time to get to know me and how special I am before running away because I don't look good, dating and not being the bigger one in the couple, I look forward to showing the people, the haters, the guys I crushed on who used me, I look forward to having nothing to do with them now. I look forward to the rest of my life, because I can live it without shame. 09/14/17 - the day my life finally changed for the better.

    I want to wear the style I like not the fat women clothes I have to pick from. I hate my clothes and will start weeding my closet in about 2 weeks.
    I want a pair of cowboy boots to wear with a denim skirt, right above the knee. The type with layered ruffles. I also look forward to wearing stilettos again..haven't worn them in about 20yrs....
    I also want to sit at the table and cross my legs...[emoji4]
