really, cupcake? REALLY?



Recommended Posts

So I’m sitting here feeling all great about my sleeve, reading and replying to posts, planning my awesomely-protein-packed dinner, and a freakin’ cupcake shows up on the top of my VST screen. I’m sure you guys have seen it- the one about “daily deals” or some BS. A freakin’ chocolate cupcake loaded with blue icing and chocolate sprinkles. REALLY? Not cool!

Lucky for me, this website is loaded with people that are willing to offer support, recommendations, opinions, and just flat out LOVE. How awesome is that? I’m 19 years old, and trust has been a definite struggle for me my whole life, as my dad has hurt me emotionally over and over again throughout my life- starting at age 2. I think this issue is one that made my food addiction worse over the years.

HOWEVER, this website and the wonderful people that fill the pages have provided inspiration and emotional support for me like I have never known. Don’t get me wrong- my family is amazingly supportive. I just mean I’ve never known strangers to be so supportive. Makes me think the world isn’t so cruel J Just wanted to post this as a thanks and a “keep keeping on” to everyone out there.

Temptation, frustration, days we just feel we have to give up… it’s all gonna come and hit us like a freight train. But we have each other (and blogs/forums to rant and let off steam!). What I’m saying is- Thank God for VST.com! ;)

It is! I have definitely found comfort in it. Beginning to get behind on my online classes, as I have found myself slightly addicted to VST! Ha! Watched your vlog today on youtube, by the way. Kudos! It's awesome! :rolleyes:

LOL!! When I first started reading this I was wondering where it was gonna go... glad I finished reading it!! As far as the advertising, I'm sure it has a lot to do with catch phrases the little ad popups notice. Like if we were talking about a specific something, the little ads would pick up catch phrases and show an ad that thinks we might like. If that makes sense...

Anyway, yes I really love this site and I truly do believe we all have a common interest and that is support of each other. It's hard to get that from our family members because the fact is unless they are sleeved they really have no idea what we go through day in and day out. Say can sympathize but they cannot empathize.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
