  1. Hun, you are not alone. The truth is, once you gain a certain amount of weight your hormones in your body completely change. It’s not you. I know you see ppl on Facebook or YouTube who “naturally” lost however many pounds. But you have to deal with the facts based on your situation. I wasted five years of my youth trying to resist this surgery and trying to lose weight on my own. I knew I was depressed. I knew I needed help. All I got were stretch marks. I can’t get that time back. But I know I will never waste time blaming myself for not being a superwoman instead of getting help to achieve my goals when I need to.
  2. Hey! I just allowed myself to sleep that week. I tried to drink as much water as possible and walk every time I got up to use the bathroom, lol! Tomorrow April 5th will be a month and I’ve lost 45 pounds. I’m happy with that. I haven’t progressed past purée soups though. I tried king crab legs today and I couldn’t keep it down. Other than that I’ve been ok. It took 3 weeks for me not to be exhausted after taking a shower. Yesterday I was jogging a bit playing catch with my dog.
  3. Hey surgery twin! How are you???
  4. Awesome!!! Me too! I have this AMAZING the psychiatrist I’m seeing and I’ve been reading and watching so many videos!! How are you? How is your progress?
  5. I can already say that that is true!!! I feel amazing!!!
  6. Congrats!!! I’m so happy for you. I live in NY and all of the surgeries after March 12th were canceled. I’m so glad u didn’t have to wait
  7. Hey guys! I got my surgery March 9th. At home hanging out with my dog. How is everyone else doing?
  8. Me too! I’ve been watching Dr. V on YouTube and I love him. I’ve also been seeing a psychiatrist so I make sure I don’t Emotionally sabotage myself. I’m not afraid of the surgery or anything.
  9. Hey Anxious_mumma, I hope you are well. You will be just fine. I used to work on a Bariatric unit in the hospital as a nurse before I gained weight. It is such a routine and brief surgery. You have a higher risk of passing away from being overweight than from weight loss surgery. The best thing you can do for your daughter is be healthy and alive for her as long as you can. Show her that if you try really hard to do something (like losing weight) that you are not afraid to get help to make sure you reach your goals. Teach her how to love herself by loving yourself. That is what real love is.
  10. What is everyone doing to mentally prepare? Even though I’m excited and I have no doubt I’m making the right decision, I’m having a lot of anxiety about it.
  11. I scared and excited!!!! Like, can I get the surgery and then be put to sleep for a year? Lol!

    Emotional eating

    I’m soooo sorry for your loss. I agree, at this trying time when you must also perform to get the best surgery results, I would see someone that will keep up with you. I was worried about the same thing for myself because I have anxiety and depression. I ended up reaching out to my counselor at my college and he is helping me a great deal while I am searching for someone to see regularly. Remember, we all got to this weight and maintained it for a reason. Especially during times like these, drench yourself with self-care.

    Anal sex and will it cause damage

    Yeah, and don’t get greedy either. I knew one guy who “fell” on a Cosco-sized shampoo bottle 🧴...
