    If I lived my life based on the feedback I get from family and friends about my life decisions either I'd have killed myself or killed all of them, a long time ago.

    I never felt full on liquids. But you're probably not really hungry. You've been attacked by the craving monster. I had terrible cravings for several weeks. But eventually it did die down.

    Kahkeetsee got a reaction from jenpa in Food funerals   
    I had a one day food funeral, four meals, all of my favorite fast food, 4,000 calories, and spent the night miserable with a stomach ache. It wasn't worth it for me.

    I'm pre-op, but expecting a late May or early June surgery date. Also, my son's wedding reception will be July 27 with family there who I will not be telling that I had surgery, so will be interesting. They are still figuring out the food menu (which I believe I will be making), and my sister is making the cake. I know better than to touch the cake, but am hoping I'm still not on liquids then, for appearances sake. Sneaky, but I'm not telling anyone at all.

    The lifting would be the problem, and as a homecare nurse myself, you don't normally have help, and many times I didn't have the needed Hoyer lift. If you're days, you have more to do physically, but if you work nights like I did, I'm afraid the stress from the surgery might tire you and perhaps put you in danger of falling asleep on the job. Just my 2 cents.

    I agree. I cancelled mine 4 years ago. I'm 55 now and think of all of the years I've been so heavy and in pain. SO wish I could have done this at your age.

    Forgive my vanity, but my wife took this picture of me folding a towel this morning and even I was shocked by it. I can never see my back so this was a surprise to me!

    @@Mjdld - I wanted to thank you for making this thread. It has become my favorite on the forum truth be told. I think the thing I appreciate most about this particular thread is that there is a distinct lack of competition and an abundance of camaraderie and support. Which is very odd for a bunch of guys.

    Gentlemen, after posting earlier, I ran it by other people and have decided to withdraw from your topic, leave you t your discussion and unfollow the topic.
    But I think that before & after pics are a great idea. Nothing wrong with a boast about a super accomplishment and, at the same time, encourage people who are at earlier stages of their journeys.
    Best to all you. Adieu.

    Hi all! It’s been quite some time since I posted! I had a bit of a rough time after we moved to Virginia. I fell into a bit of a depression having moved all the way across the country from my family, leaving my friends, leaving my career as an RN to be a stay at home mom... lots of great changes were happening too, but I just had a hard time coping with it all.
    Anyway, things are much better, and I’m enjoying this new life! I’m almost 9 months post op lower body lift and thigh Lipo and 3 yr 8mo post op gastric sleeve. I’m 5’ 6” and my current weight is 162, exactly 100 lbs down from my sleeve surgery, and a new low for me as an adult! I’ve been trying to work out more, and sticking to a clean healthy low carb diet.
    I LOVE my post op results!!! Dr. Stacey Folk in Denver is my angel! I do eventually want to have my thighs done, but that will have to wait for now...
    I currently wear a size 8/10 bottoms and S/M tops. I also plan on wearing a bikini in public when I go to Vegas in a couple weeks!!!
    Anyway, I just wanted to check in And update you all. Hope everyone is well!

    Kahkeetsee reacted to Marblicious in TLC's MY 600-LB LIFE Casting Call for Season 7!   
    I personally think it is taking advantage of someone who is in a desperate situation. It is an opportunity to show the voyeurs the warts and all of being fat, instead of exploring it as an illness. Why is it necessary to show them naked in the shower or someone else having to wipe their bums.
    In my opinion this is purely for the entertainment of people who do not understand the illness and tragedy behind super obesity.
    For people like us who have weight problems we can see the struggle and pain and it can be motivating. We are but a small portion of the watching audience and the rest is humiliating and dehumanizing.
    Inside every overweight person is someone with feelings and problems and hopes and dreams. Surely it would be better to explore the illness from all sides rather than focus on the surgery and the way they look.
    As the message says this is a CASTING call, to me, that says it all.
    Just my thoughts on this.

    I'm 5'3" HW was 412 and CW 357 (still pre-op). My goal is 150, but like someone else said, getting off meds, and walking better are most important. I haven't been under 300 in 35 years. NSV would be increased ability to move around.

    Yes it sucks having to spend $100 to keep from getting sexually molested by your government when you travel, but on the other side of the coin, my time is worth more than that...so I spent the cash. TSA can't give a decent massage, and I don't want a happy ending from those creeps.
