    What was your tipping point?

    I have so many tipping points! as I know many of us probably have, its hard to chose like one particular thing bc just being obese is a reason bc it is linked to so many issues, not just physically but mentally. being obese messes with your state of mind, I think just being obese stops you from being who you trully are meant to be. its stops you from many things that an otherwise healthy or not obese person would do, bc they would not have the same issues that me with my experience with being obese does. I dont like to make obesity into a negative thing, bc there are plenty of obese people that are comfortable in their bodies, but I was not one of them. it really did hinder me from enjoying or doing things and I knew it was only a matter of time that I got a more serious condition that would only further my inability to enjoy life. I wanted a more healthier quality of living. so atleast I can live and be more normal and be a part of society and be comfortable in my own body.
  2. Has anyone gotten the Covid Vaccine after surgery like weeks later? I am debating if to wait like at least a month or at least 3 weeks post op just because I am wondering if there is enough studies out there to know if it would cause any side effect because they are to close together. I am going to talk to my doctor but is there anyone that has gotten any of the vaccines>

    wait what week are you on?? that you where able to eat all this??
  4. I am finally home! I got surgery April 1st thursday, they kept me in hospital till April 4th! Easter morning I was released! crazy thing is that I had more nausea than pain! I couldn't tell since I was so sleepy, tired what was really bothering me but it was nausea. I couldnt tolerate anything liquids but then by saturday night sunday morning I was drinking normal no nausea. the nausea felt like when you go on a spinning ride, for me it was hard because I avoid those rides for that reason I am far too sensitive. I am home though I did it! I am happy although it might not show because I am ssssssssssssssso tired sleepy. after 10 years of trying to get this surgery, I tried with Kaiser, I thought maybe if I have to go to six month 3 hour dietitian course with other bariatric pals, I will do it (but no) I chickened out. Then I tried with another surgery doctor in Arcadia , I thought maybe if I pay for my monthly dietitian I will go through with it( but no) I chickened out. so finally finally my mind, heart and soul aligned to go threw with it. It wasnt until then that I went all the way. you have to be in it. you have to believe, you have to think of yourself the positive leave the negative behind. you have to be at peace with the outcome. the fact my surgery was on EASter week this made it special to me like God was with me no matter what.

    I am really doing it this time

    I can totally understand the frustration of not having the surgery done years ago. I too was too scared and not mentally prepared to go threw with it and now after many years I am also finally going to go threw with it! I also have 3 kids and it is so hard when everyone is eating like a teenager or casually while it seems like I am the only one gaining weight. I was afraid and now years later I am still overweight and still trying! let us know how your surgery goes! Mine wont be till December.
