Hi DcMak72' date='

My psych eval was a problem. It turned out it wasn't to help me in my weight loss but a pure screening process in behalf of the insurance company. I made the mistake of telling the psych that used to be a hippie and I did drugs for about 11/2 years IN THE 60's! Clean ever since. It was enough for the insurance company to reject me. They later accepted me after the bariatric doc appealed.

I advise you to be careful what you say.[/quote']

I had the psych evaluation. I had a 500 question test that asked me "Do I see people and animals others do not see?", "Do I smell my fingers after eating chicken?", "Am I scared of sex?" and "I feel I am being followed?" I laughed so hard, it took me over two hours to finish the test. Seriously!

I've noticed that, too. I suppose that some of it is cultural; it's more acceptable socially for men to be overweight than women. Also, I think often the reasons vary why men become overweight vs. women. Men (not all, of course) tend not to be emotional eaters; we like *big* quantities, because we're big strong men. We've worked hard for that trip to Outback, and we deserve their biggest offering. A full plate of spaghetti? Yes, please, with seconds. A 12-pack of beer in the summer in a day? No problem. And years of this made us who we are.

It's a quiet killer, though. In 2009, I took a 2-week trip to China to visit friends. I was lucky to fit in a single seat in the airplane. They were amazed at how much I ate, and the choices I made. There is a lot of street food in China; you can get corn on the cob, steamed dumplings, fried dumplings, scallion pancakes, and a host of other things like fresh fruits and vegetables. I consistently chose things that were fried, or were bad for me (like eating at KFC there), despite my friend's advice. You can see pictures in my profile of what I looked like then. None of them ate the way I did, and I didn't see a lot of overweight Chinese people. :P

Those of us who are sleeved, or pursuing the sleeve, have pulled back from the edge of the funnel. This really is the last station of the diet train; we get off here.

Good luck to everyone!

I must admit I have spent many hours reading this forum (for a couple months pre op). I'm 4 weeks post sleeve and have had no issues at all. The weight loss is steady and I'm really happy with my decision to have the op.

I feel for everyone I read about who has had issues, I'm on soft foods, but really my diet is pretty close to normal (no junk and tiny portions).

I do get a laugh out of how many ladies reply to the 'Man Room' threads.

I'll make an effort from now on. :)

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
