Is It True What They Say???



Recommended Posts

I may not be able to talk to women, but at least I got a fan here that follows me around posting pics and pulling quotes from other threads.

So is this a non scale victory?

I wouldn't consider having you as a fan an achievement though.

Spoken like someone who clearly gets no attention from anyone. We were just posting in another thread, then you come here and make a post, doesn't take much searching to find where your prior posts are matey. TKyIbfk.gif

Anyways, my last response to you, clearly you're desperate for attention, and humor is all but lost on you.

I didn't even know it was you posting in the other thread because your posts don't inspire me like mine apparently inspire you. You take digs at me wanting attention and yet you keep giving it. You are correct. I have never been obsessed over before. In any event, I'll take the attention.

I'm going to necro the crap out of this post.

I found it looking for issues with "dressing". I never really had to deal with the whole "dressing" situation... until now. I always assumed I dressed right... well, now that Mr. Happy has regained 4 more inches of himself to hang out freely as he pleases, I find that I'm dressing left, when I dress right things aren't as comfortable. Just thought it was interesting how things can change and how the "angle of the dangle" might not be what we assumed or remember. And as someone that's been overweight for most of his life... it's a different experience this time around.

So to the OP, yes it's true, the numbers are exact, but we do gain some distance as we shrink up.

But this whole extra process and part to deal with is both awesome and annoying LOL. I'm sure I'll get used it to... LOL I'd rather have what I've got to deal with now, then go back to "hide and seek"

Figured I'd get hump day started with a question.

Is it true when they say that for every 35 pounds you lose you start showing an extra inch on the ole wedding tackle???

I lost 225 pounds and went from having a bottle rocket to a patriot missle

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
