Is your weight loss surgeon morbidly obese?



Recommended Posts

My Doctor Needleman, no way. He's a shooter of clay pigeons and targets, loves the outdoors. But he plays tennis, both for enjoyment and because he is doggone good at Tim Although I can't confirm it, I suspect he has the beautifully toned legs you find in tennis and soccer males. Dr Noria runs and I suspect has competed in as many marathons as I have baking contests. So both of them not only Talk the Talk about better health & living a healthier diet, they Walk the Walk as well. And neither has reached 50 unless Dr Needlnan has had a birthday!😷&😷God Watch over and bless them, they have and are making a profound change in MY LIFE!

At the Bariatric practice I go to everyone seems to be of average weight. There are a couple office staff that are on the chunky side but nobody obese that I’ve seen. The 3 surgeons are fit and fabulous. That said, I have seen cardiologists that should lose some lbs and hairdressers with frizzy fried hair.

Actually my GP is quite overweight and I felt like because of it, he never took my concerns about my own weight very seriously. He would just say things like “well, if I had the magic wand for that...” (and pat his tummy) Finally I made an appt with the NP and talked/cried to her about my weight concerns. She was actually the one who suggested bariatric surgery. I love her for it : )

My surgeon + staff are thin, but that is unsurprising as I live in a city where there are few overweight people. (I think they hide them or something.) I have to add that I know some cardiac surgeons who are smokers, and that really blows my mind.

That said, I would be uncomfortable consulting someone in the field of obesity and obesity research who is obese. I recall a time when I was in my twenties and I wanted to consult a therapist to see if I could find out WHY I had this weight problem. So I go to this woman who was highly recommended, but when I had my first appointment and saw she was 300 pounds, I knew I would not take anything she said seriously. Physician, help thyself!

Agreed! When I was a little Sin I saw my Grandmother's pastor doing some pretty heavy kissing on one of the nurses. He was married of course. I'll never forget that. He was a fire and brimstone type of dude too. Always had something bad to say about women and how they dress, and their proper place in the world. What a great moral compass he was!

Obviously he subscribed to the "Do As I Say, Not as I Do" school of theology! Somebody ought to pull their accreditation, those diplomas are as bad as Trump University and I have heard a lot of people complaining of being defrauded there!

My surgeon is VERY thin, however, her husband and partner is a bariatric patient. The NP that does my fills is also banded, and I think one of the front desk girls.

I'm a patient of her husband's. I love the fact that he has a band. He understands me when I discuss issues with him.

Hahaha... my surgeon is chubby. Not bariatric surgery size chubby. But he is definitely a round-faced dude (pic of him on my profile). Several of his staff have had WLS. Most are average-sized... but I'm not sure which have had the surgery and which haven't.

      12/12I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week well five days ago so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy

      The sad dejected truth that you are not the same size in a plush padded vs. Lacy unlined bra. And should have known it. Sigh.

        Guess the new bra/panty set was a bust?

        I see what you did there!

        Also, boobs are dumb. I'm pretty sure I'll be tucking mine iento my socks in a few months!

        I see what you did lol

        They still kinda work but only by accident 😓, I couldn't find my exact size so I decided to play around with band/cup manipulation. But now I know padded bras may be adding a full cup size I don't own...

        I've been counting on that for years!

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        Girl, that stall will break. Give your body a minute to realize what's happening and catch up with itself...it'll kick back in gear! 💓
