I'm single. Sleeved three months now. I'm a single mom and I even did that by myself! =) Well, my OB helped...

I'd kind-of like to get out a little and socialize but I'm not Miss Social - I'm more the friend of Miss Social type. My closest single girlfriend is dealing with some of her own issues and doesn't want to go out so I sort-of feel stuck. Maybe that's good because I'm also one big walking hormone and might make a complete fool of myself falling all over some poor soul! That and the idea of someone actually being attracted to me is a little freaky. I remember my surgeon's PA telling me that I needed to get used to the idea of people being interested in me and I think I looked at her like she was speaking a foreign language. I don't mean to be down on myself but the thought of someone seeing me naked is just too horrifying for words.

Checking back in, I went out with my wingman on Friday night, he was helping me see what kinda guys are out there.

Had the best night, got hit on like 4 times in one night......not sure any were 100% serious, but more attention than I ever got pre-op.

Guess I am starting to get sexy...will embrace that :)

Hey all the single ladies. I've been single most of my life, a boy or 3 here and there, even a few serious relationships, but never married. I haven't had low self esteem as an adult, but definitely in high school and college. I'm looking forward to more attention. The best part of being single on a diet is no temptation food and not having to cook something I can't eat for a family. What is the best part for you?

There really arent very many single male sleevers... I guess that means I get first pick? Just kidding.

It's great to see all the single sleevers out, I'm joining the ranks (been single for a few months, but was using the time to get myself on track) and glad to be here. I'm still on the 6 month diet/exercise regime and in month 2 I'm down 31 pounds. If my college schedule doesn't fit the surgery date, I'm just gonna do in Mexico. It's nice to have both options.

Anyways, bring it on singles - were the ones who keep the party going!

My name is TJ, I'm from Maryland but born in Ohio. Smart enough to work for the Man, dumb enough to get back on a motorcycle after half a decade of no riding (one of my major reasons for losing weight - I miss my HD Dyna Glide :( ).

My nutritionist made the recommendation for August 16 which is about 3 weeks after my program ends. The surgeon will respond soon we hope. Personally, I hope they can push it up because class starts again at the end of August. So I might pick up the knowledge from the insurance and just pay out of pocket with Dr. Kelly.

Stats as requested (demanded?)

26 years old

5'10"

337 pounds prior to nutrition class

306 pounds as of this morning

Im like a life size teddy bear ;-)

Now I have to read the rest of the thread and figure out who else is in here and who they are hehe.

Definitely - might just do the Mexico option if I can't get the timing right. Honestly, I don't talk too much about the progress thing. It feels too much like bragging. But I love reading stories and offering encouragement.

I don't feel it's bragging! You are giving a testimony of the surgery being a success and also sharing what you go through gives hopes to others.

Welcome to the Single Sleevers forum.

Get ready for some more attention.

I still dont see it but I have been hanging out with my wingman lately and he says there are always guys checking me out...but hopefully I will realise when a good guy does come along...

Good luck with your surgery :)

      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.
