    Frustr8 got a reaction from Ninabeena in Surgery, “it’s the easy way.”   
    A little poetry for all of us
    Weight Loss Surgery, it's not the EASY way
    You have to make a commitment each and every day
    Your diet,is forever changed but then so is your body
    All those "Nay-Sayers" they are just being snotty!
    You wager your body, there will be some pain
    But better health and fitness you will gain.
    I'm changing my life and lifestyle, that is true
    But with the❤and support of my Bariatric Pal friends
    I know I'll make it through!
    My weight loss surgery is a tool--- not a toy
    But each pound I'm losing, that gives me great joy!
    Will you join me on my journey towards renewed health?
    To know I can now have a future- that is really wealth.
    So I walk bravely forward, content with whatever tomorrow will bring
    And for me. Frust8 lies ahead my happiness in a Bariatric Spring.

    It is Good to be Chaste, but even more Fun to be Chased occasionally!

    Sideeye thank you for the inspiration, you really do look like a brand new sweet stranger, guess that's why you didn't get recognised. I am still seeking to release my inner Cutie Pie, Red-hot Mama self from the Big Mama shell the outside world seemed to see. See I always knew I was cute, fun to be around, a very sweet kind person, but them, all they ever gave me credit for was a A** wide enough to show drive- in movies on, and I am so much more. Plan on diminishing me to the point no one recognizes ME. And the guys who wouldn't give me the time of day, I yearn for the day they try to hit on me, I plan to say" Why , no Thank You, I believe I can do BETTER than YOU after all!" Years of hurt, behind that feeling, I might be just a modicum revengeful!👊

    3 Future NSV I am hoping for:#1
    sitting on a plastic chair and not have it make embarrassing sucky noises, also to have chairs with arms nor bite into my thighs. #2 Relatives letting me sit on their,good furniture instead of getting a sturdy wooden one from. the kitchen or their porch.#3 sitting and swinging on a porch swing. Last time I tried relative kept looking at the pitch ceiling to see if I bent the hooks out or snapped the chain. Many things have a 200 or 250 lb weight limit.
    And when I achieve these things I will shout,it from the highest roof, right after I post on Bariatric Pal!🚩😛🚩

    Sliders tend to be things that go down your esophagus easily. One of Orchids and Dragons and mine, was Cheezits, you start with them and you have no brakes, you chomp the whole box. And ice cream was one of mine, I would think it tasted so cool and creamy I would devour an entire 1/2 gallon at one sitting. And often I didn't realize it until I was scraping bottom. popcorn isn't one for me then or now, I have diverticulitis, those hulls do a number on me, PAIN CITY! And those are the ones in my life but others may have something else to contribute.

    While scrolling through past postings I noticed there is" Guys who started over 400lbs" in the Guys Room. Well I believe if there is" gravy for the 🐔rooster" there certainly should be "gravy for the🐔 hen " especially those of us with meatier🍗 drumsticks. Are there challenges we face that aren't faced by our 200 lb sisters? Do we tend to lose weight faster or slower than smaller🐣 flock members?

    Well I still like you, you made a couple bad choices, but you're going to try doing better, right? And if you getvtempted you will remember how you feel now. Pick yourself up, shake off the criticism if it hurts, dust yourself off, all is not lost. Your sleeve will feel better when you feel better, and you are still pretty cool, okay? Please stay, you were at least honest, in this politically correct eera, it's refreshing.😜

    Well here it sets still. My biggest complaint with also being 320 and post'menopausal my metabolism is such I barely lose any weight with my exercise, whereas my younger sisters drop weight like a scared rabbit. Do you feel like life is not always fair?😕

    And I am out here in Central Ohio, my smallish- 20,000- city is called Mount Vernon- my family has lived in this area since leaving New England in the Early 1800s? Know family legend was that they traveled down the Erie Canal And down into Northern Ohio, and across my state to this area.
    Much farther along , 13 months today, trying to make it down the last 5-10 pounds, depending how your scale weighs-- to my goal of 175-- sounds like STILL an amount of weight? Not when YOU started at 365+ like ME and I'm 73, never gonna be Slim and Sleek unless you're hoping for Emaciation , which I am NOT. Blue, almost periwinkle blue TODAY, it gets LONG and tedious at times, but I was BORN to Triumph and I am still not ready to Give Up. So I do ❤ reading each of your Stories, 🙏pray for Each of You, keeps ME from fixiating on Myself!

    Well as for me, starting weight 355, at least that I admit to. That was October 2017. When I first started seeking back in August 2015 I was still yo- yo-ing so couldn't give you solid for then, Switched to OHIO STATE March 2018, due to having completed another program twice, drat their fiendish souls and Nasty McFilthy MD who refused me my surgery, some things speeded up. Psych April, Met Nurse Practioners, Exercise Therapist, Dietician Late May, Presurgery consult mid July with Dr Needleman , and date then scheduled for September 5th. I had been gently losing weight until this point. Dr,Needleman, while palpating my abdomen found liver margin in the right subcostal(under rib area. Not "happy" sign, this meant NASH, given a choice of 2,3, or 4 weeks to shrink my chubby. liver down, I chose the entire month of August , and dropped 15 pounds that month alone. SW 319, surgery itself was wonderful , no real pain, no gas to expell. At a week,i had a weird purple,haze travel across my belly, Doctors theory: when doing surgery,a baby blood vessel got nicked, when I got enough Lovenox in my system it started bleeding, nowhere for the blood to go but between the fat and skin. Odd looking like,I was carrying an aliens baby in there. And I had already started dropping weight. I had another sppiintment a week later, they asked how I was doing, Doctor,had said I could move up to,level,3 , I told them I can't do,it, I think,maybe there,is a stricture in there. Oh no no they said, this can't be, you're just swollen inside, and I kept trying and Precious Pouch kept on her mission,of puking up as much as if. not more than I took in. Finally,on October 12, an endoscopy,was done, yes I have a stricture of my,stoman yes I also have 5 additional ulcers, 2 inside my pouch,& 3 more 9n the the back wall of my jejunem, the portion of my small intestinal wall. my pouch connects to. I m telling you all this because,when you use phone instead of computer, you cannot,enter things on profile. Another one on 10/26 , not successful and another coming ZN

    And here I am Once Again- yesterday was my LAST WoundCareCenter visit- Whoop Whoop Hurray- I have to wear a BandAid over it until the First of YEAR because the skin will be fragile until then. 2 months 2 Days. to heal from What Was Billed as a Simple Low-Grade mostly elective SURGERY, and I currently have a deep dimple in my upper arm fleshy Will it Smooth out? Certainly hoping so!
    And one month from Today, Thursday December 26th, my 74th BIRTHDAY my Shoulder SURGERY will occur. Warned him unless He wants to Avoid Hearing ME sing "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME" I intend to be up yodelling at the top of my Lungs, and yes My Peeps I CAN YODEL just like the Old Time Movie Cowboys. Another of my MANY MANY Talents. So to shut Me up he had better order pre- sedatives in the Holding Area- reminded ME it will HURT- NBD I am already in pain, already can't raise my arms above 45-60% from level- so this will "cure" rather than" harm" things And Can Only improve my Life Quality, the way I'm thinking 🙉or least seeing👀. So stay tuned to This BatChannel for the next chapter of the FRUSTR8 SAGA, cause knowing how I am, I go into Nothing without a little kicking and screaming, I earned every red- gold strand of hair and temperment over my Lifetime, and I suspect if I haven't grayed by 74 I won't ever do IT!
    Catch you all on the Flip Side, Okay?👈😝👉

    Eating the right thing in the right amounts, planning to plant and grow some items, today is our last normal frost day, so should be " gravy" from now on.
    Otherwise looking like a Foxy Lady instead of someone's Big Momma, I will relinquish my title to Martin Lawrence and Tyler Perry, they both can have all the things that go with such a role.
    Otherwise, less short of breath, able to move smoother,quicker and without those groans I used tease,my older relatives about, I now make those sounds myself!!!
    And best of all, living a good long while in this crazy Earth. 🌎, have a deep urge to see 👀what happens next.
