Recommended Posts

He just has to pick a date!!!!

Now he can suffer with this insufferably insanity of a balancing act (diet and nutrition).

He will probably loose weight - eat and not exercise. :cry :cry

Thank goodness I love him so much!!!!!! ;):)

Congratulations to your DH!! My DH is getting the band sometime next year. He still needs to start his 6 mos diet plan to get approval with insurance. I know what you mean....men can lose faster and easier than us girlies. Most surgeons do encourage the women to go first for that very reason. ;) It will be nice for both of you to be on the journey together. I'm looking forward to it myself.

I think my DH should consider it too, he's not as overweight as I was but he's really struggling to get it off and keep it off. He had lost 20kg since early 2005 but it's creeping back on again now.He's almost 40 and he sits at a desk for 10 hours a day and in the car for at least 2, just a heart attack waiting to happen. He has a stressful job too.

But he's also the more lily livered of the two of us! I always knew I wouldnt have problems with PBing and not being able to eat foods, I've always had a cast Iron cut and I was right. I dont have those issues. But poor old Doug, he'll puke at the drop of a hat, he fainted while I was giving birth, roflmao! I just know (and he does too) if he were banded, he'd be the one with difficulties, constant PBing etc and I dont know, in Australia anyway, it would be decidedly unmanly not to be able to go out to business lunches, drink beer etc. YOu jsut couldnt order an entree and that's it if you're a bloke. It requires a lifestyle that our culture just doesnt really support for men.

So I think your hubby is very brave and what a great step to take!

Thanks everyone! I sure am excited for him.

He does not have that much to loose, and works in a non-airconditioned shop all day, as a machinist, so he will drop it easily. Dirty dawg.

He is looking at making his appt for July 3rd. Then with the July 4th holiday he won't miss much work.

He is already eating better, his problem is Portion Control. He eats way too much when he does eat.

Donna - more then likely not, as he is not a big computer person, we each have our own laptops, and he does the bills, surfs his stuff (poker online, and the such) but it not on the pc that much. But I will lead him here for questions, and let him read up - so be kind to him, he's a big softy and people love him naturally. He's not high strung and crazy like me! ;)

Thanks again!!!

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?

      April Surgery
      Am I the only struggling to get weight down. I started with weight of 297 and now im 280 but seem to not lose more weight. My nutrtionist told me not to worry about the pounds because I might still be losing inches. However, I do not really see much of a difference is this happen to any of you, if so any tips?
