When I was at my heaviest I used to say . . .



Recommended Posts

That there were 2 maybe 3 skinny people inside of me just screamin' to get out. Now I'm down to 1 1/4!

LOL :lol:

Hmm...

I used to say, "I'm going on a diet starting (Monday, New Year's Day, whatever day)... I'm really gonna do it this time"

Now, I really DID it this time!!! :D

.....we weren't made to have it all. I already have brains, bronze, boobs, and beauty.

Now I'm going for the 10 and I deserve to have it all. We all deserve to have it all!!!

Good topic... I used to put everything off ... I'll go training when I am x stone/pounds ... I will look good when I am x stone/pounds... lot of things that I put off; basically my life was on hold whilst the fat consumed me and my whole self!! Oh what a complete waste of years and energy... now, I just do it!!

I used say over and over many things, but they all sounded like Annie..."tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow" because I was going to beat my desire to eat everything in site, tomorrow. I was going to have control over me, tomorrow. I was going to be better for myself, tomorrow. I was not going to fail this time, starting tomorrow I was going to buy that diet plan, excercise equipment to help me lose weight, tomorrow.

Thank you for this thread. Now I say... I love my sleeve! and No regrets!

i was like iegal, i used to say sooooo many things but tomorrow never came for me. . . until December 29th, 2009. . . . then it finally came. . . now i've lost all my weight minus about 20 lbs and i don't have that much loose skin (not enough for surgery anyhow) no wrinkles (and at 50 that is a plus) no problems at all. . . but now i wish i didn't have the sleeve. The sliming has gotten the best of me after almost 2 years. . . it's really sickening. . . can't even eat 1 egg without the slimies starting never mind a nice meal out. . . . . . ugh I know i'm only having a pitty party with myself and i should just get over it, but i'm allowed as a person. . . . thanks for listening. . . :huh:

I tell people I have a lot of muscle underneath all this fat. I just need to exercise a little!

Coops and iegal, you both said it so well! I often found myself feeling like I was stuck in inertia, and if I could just get started... tomorrow... things would be better. :-)

One thing that I thought but didn't say was how free I would feel to be rid of all my fat, and even though I have a ways to go, that seems to be sooooo true. I feel so much better and so much more free!!! I <3 my sleeve!

I'd always bail on plans with friends, saying I was tired or busy--when really I was just avoiding being uncomfortable (particularly in theater seats and little wooden restaurant chairs that felt like they would collapse under me).

My favorite line to myself, which I stole from a bumper sticker, was "Fat people are harder to kidnap." That one still makes me giggle.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
