    GrandDivaFee got a reaction from DanaC84 in 50+   
    I'm 52 and I am so happy with my decision.... Yes I wish I'd made it the first time I started inquiring about it. Well actually I take that back...when I first started looking into it the sleeve wasn't around... But still and all I don't think age should deter a person because at least they will be happier and healthier

    I am annoyed for you. Glad you said no because it's no one's business but your own. I have one specific intrusive person at my job who will be trying to figure out once I do my surgery. I am hoping to be approved for spring break.
    Wishing you the best.

    I'm so sorry you're going through this. Some people have no boundaries. Keep your chin up and try not to worry about the foolish and what they are saying.

    Ewe, that chic has no class. Don’t worry about lying. It’s none of her damn business. She just wants to gossip

    Today a coworker just flat out asked if I had WLS. I haven't told anyone, and want to keep this private. I told her no, and I felt a little weird about denying it. I was really uncomfortable and I thought it was rude. She is very gossipy and I'm sure now she will be discussing this with others. I wish people would mind their own business.

    Good question. I'm 52. I don't feel too old for the surgery since it's never too late to change your life. However, I have noticed that most youtubers are really young, comfort with social media made be a factor, there. I also read that some of the surgeons say that age is one of the determining factors in results. How are you fairing 50+ers. Have your results been as expected? Have any of you reached normal BMI?

    Hey y'all! Anyone and everyone is welcome to jump in and join us.
    This is the Intermittent Fasting DAily Menu/Results/Accountability Thread. It's where a few of us (or many) are going to log in and encourage each other while we experiment with our own IF plans. You can list or talk about anything--not just your food. I look forward to adding in HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and core exercises to my walking plan while practicing IF. So expect to hear about that too. hehe I expect some of us will talk about the known IF side-effects like insomnia, circadian rhythm disturbance, etc. It's all good! Let's hack this IF mofo! mkay?
    There is not any 1 specific IF plan--there are so many to choose from, so this is a BYOIFP (bring-your-own-IF-plan) and join the fun! This is the thread where we'll post our daily menus and maybe some piccys at times! We can discuss progress, issues we might notice, look at how we may want to refine our own personal plans. I do think you should be healed from surgery and have your doctor's and RD's blessings to try something like this and you should do a ton of research and reading about Intermittent Fasting.
    IF isn't only about weight loss, it's about taking specific measures to limit either quantities, calories, macros, or sometimes only consciously altering eating windows/schedules in order to effect metabolic change and reduce inflammation and improve health markers.
    Ok, let's do this thang!!!
