    Im scared of gaining weight through this crisis

    You are very welcome! I have become quite distant to this site due to the fact people tend to not try to understand and just make judgment's.

    Im scared of gaining weight through this crisis

    Seen this topic and had to chime in. I have been a religious GYM RAT for years now since being Post Op and to not be able to go to the gym is KILLING ME! The mental game is the worst part of it. I am still getting outside for walks and runs as weather permits but it is not the same. The fear of gaining and loosing the momentum I previous had is scary. As far as the virus goes I feel we all have our opinions on the issue. But stay safe and SMART everyone. And remember even though you may not worry for yourself think of others during this time. On a more positive note, I have noticed ALOT of families going out for walks and biking. Runners are out like crazy and even elderly couples have been out and about walking. Hope the positive changes this horrible time in our World stick around and we learn to cherish each other more.

    Dating websites

    I know this is a long shot and not normal by any means as I had ALOT of bad apples message and reach out to me. But I met the love of my life on Match. As with any online dating site be patient and ASK QUESTIONS. Lots and lots of questions. I was not the online dating type but the dating scene now days is a joke honestly. So I took the chance and to thankful that I did. Good luck to all! If its meant to be it will be don't rush into anything.
  7. So after over a month I decided to weigh in.... HIT MY GOAL! Figured I had gained honestly with all the weight training...


    Now what?

    Considering plastics...... But is it really worth the money/risk? Yeah I will feel better ( I think) but vanity is not everything.

    I can’t date overweight people

    I feel the same way. I am actually turned off by someone who is not willing to take care of themselves. And its almost like in a way self sabotage to do that to ourselves. I have felt it makes me petty and shallow as well but as we change and grow along this journey our views and what we look for in a partner change as well.

    Dating websites

    Had to click on just due to the topic. I am single due to surgery and my success and the insecurities it brought with it (On his end). I was curious to see who all used dating sites as well. I am just not feeling the whole paying to have the headache of navigating the real ones and the games. No one has time for that. The struggle is real....

    Struggling with family

    I also had family issues that came up like this prior to surgery. I just had to within myself let them have their opinion and say what they needed and now post op make them eat everyone of those comments! I am only in my 30's and have arthritis so bad in my ankle and leg there were days I was not even mobile. My family knew. And yet still made comments. And now post op they may say you look good but its always followed by "I bet you feel better now that your not in all that pain". So as frustrating as it is and many of us can relate just stay focused on you. BE SELFISH! Take your life back. And last thing the ones who seem to be not so supportive...deep down they are jealous. Sorry to hear about you mother.
