    If my two cents is worth anything, I would say definitely continue with the therapy. Then maybe try writing your non-scale victories (NSV) in a notebook. Maybe as you see the list of NSV's increase it will help you recognize the benefits of the surgery from the health and lifestyle aspect.

    I so much happier and healthier, after I got my surgery I just wish I did sooner and not let my weight get so high that I weigh over 600 lbs. I know I still have a long way to go but I weigh 400. I can do a lot more things know, that I couldn't before. My goal is to write a book about my journey, and help people with their surgery.

    Trust me the weight will start coming off and the energy level will increase. ONCE YOU recognize the true benefits of having the surgery for yourself and how it's going to improve your mental and physical being. All the side chatter won't mean a thing. Stay focus and strong...remember you got this.

    I bought everything (except underwear and swimsuits) from Goodwill and other thrift stores until I hit maintenance. I was blowing through sizes so fast that it just wasn't worth buying new things.

    To everyone I would say "don't compare your situation to others". Weight lose is easier for some then for others. You have to decide what's best for you and this might mean stepping out on your own. Just remember that when it's all said and done what best for YOUR physical and mental health should be your decision. Most of us on here have either questioned ourselves or had others question our choice for bariatric surgery. And I believe a lot of us have gone through with the procedure and is satisfied with it. Knowledge is the key to understanding what you don't know. So research until you feel you have the knowledge you need to make a informed decision. This might be what you want right now, but let the decision be yours.....
