Anyone want to be fat again?



Recommended Posts

Does anyone wish they were still fat from a vanity point of view? I know I'm healthier and I'm only halfway but I'm already noticing the empty hanging skin,when I was bigger it was filled out and plump! iv less confidence now and trying to hide it in clothes is a nightmare excerise only does so much, I know u can fix the stomach legs etc but what about the bum and back,am I facing a lifetime of hiding skin and feeling disgusted and self conscience then the scars of multiple surgerys to partially fix it?

God. No. Never again. I dont have saggy skin so I cant speak about that, but im way happier and healthier than ive been in a looooonnnnnnngggggg time. I still have 20 extra lbs, a chubby tummy, and far from perfect skin, but I'll still take all that over being overweight ! Hopefully you will be able to see the positive over the negative soon. Good luck !

Hell to the no. I look great in clothes, not so awesome naked. Before I looked not so great either way. Added to that, I'm healthy. Win!

Absolutely not. I don't enjoy the loose skin, but I love tying my shoes without being out of breath. Riding 12 miles on a bicycle, wearing normal clothes and the list goes on. So I won't wear a bikini, I'm lovin this.

No! Never, ever. I had saggy skin before and I still do. It is what is is. Never want to go back. I'll take the daily struggle to keep it off over the struggle to get through the day as a heavier person.

So I am pre-op and read this. I love you for posting this question. I have friends and coworkers saying aren't you going to worry about all that skin afterwards? Umm yeah I thought of it, but this is what I am thinking of.. why I want surgery.. I want to fit in any old chair, I want to be able to keep up with my kids, go on a bike and not have the fear of the tires popping off. Being able to go on an airline without thinking of a seat belt extender, or better yet going to the amusement park and being next to my kids. If you are self conscious of skin, wear some layers to hide it, and invest in some spanxs, if it covers the dimples and yanks you in, I would imagine it would smooth and pull in skin quite nicely. No need to ever be fat! You've worked hard, enjoy yourself!

He'll to the no! I never ever want my weight back. I look too damn good when fully clothed. Only one person sees me naked, and he's not complaining.

Some really funny replies!!! LOL!

No, I'd never want to be fat again.... I can see that I may have some saggy skin below my belt line, but since I usually wear pants I don't think that will be a problem! It looks my arms, legs and upper body might be spared; so I guess I'll be lucky in that respect! My ass and stomach might become saggy, but no one wants to see that at my age... I scare the dog when I get out of bed in the morning, but it doesn't bother me. I'm kind of hoping I can find some exercises that will help tone me up and do something for that problem should it get to a point where it is worrisome.

My boobs deflated. Before anything else did.

But the good part is I can cross my arms now. I also fit in a movie seat without spilling over. Did I mention I can cross my arms now? I find myself doing it all throughout the day. I'm easily amused.

The surgery isn't about vanity; it is about health. Maybe you had the wrong expectations going into the surgery.

I just didn't expect to still have to wear loose clothes to hide my saggy ass and back boobs! When u pair that with constant hunger having zero energy and tearing my ass every time I have to poop and my hair falling out so bad I'm going to have to wear a hat for the next year and becoming a social recluse cos I can't go out to eat anymore and can't enjoy food anymore loosing my boobs and the frustratingly slow weight loss only 50lbs in 7 months then yes maybe my expectations were too high

      I was nervous as well but I kept thinking once that weight starts coming off it will be all worth it. The best part is the anesthesia I my surgery was on 1st of February in the morning I slept all day and most of the next. The important thing is to keep sipping water or ask for ice chips. Day 2 if you feel like it the best thing is to get up and walk a little bit it helps. My hospital here in Australia gives you opti fast after the op and it tastes like crap . So I just stuck to water and Luke warm black tea . Make sure to ask for pain relief if you need it they offer endone here but it makes you constapated so be careful 😀
      Good luck 🙏

      Gastric Sleeve surgery is scheduled for March 12, 2018 at 1:45 PM.  Highest weight was 327.  Starting weight when seeing the surgeon the first time was 276 and now I am down to 253 thanks to my pre-pre diet!  Low cal, low carb and high protein diet works best for me!  My goal weight is 140 for 6 months after surgery!

      Hello I was wondering if the psych eval will determine weather or not I can have the surgery

        It can, very few people I’ve heard have not passed one to get surgery. BUT, don’t stress about it and just BE HONEST during your evaluation. Most of them I hear are fairly easy. Mine was fun actually and I was happy I had it. Try not to work yourself up about it.

        While I admit I haven't had it yet, don't sweat the psych exam. Here's an excerpt from the site I linked at the bottom. Unless you're concerned that one of the bullet items applies to you, it should not be a problem. If one of those does apply to you, you likely have bigger problems than your weight.

        Quote

        Approximately 15 percent of the time, psychologists recommend that patients be denied for the surgery, or delay the surgery due to mental health concerns.

        Patients may be denied for a variety of reasons, including:

        • Suffering from undiagnosed and undertreated depression
        • Demonstrating the symptoms of psychosis and bipolar disorders
        • Not understanding the risks of the surgery
        • Abusing drugs and alcohol within the past six months
        • Attempting suicide multiple times
        • Showing an inability to follow the post-operative procedures
        • Exhibiting symptoms of a severe binge eating disorder
        • Having an unstable social situation, such as homelessness or lack of a support system

        Ok thanks I feel much better I don't have any issues,I think I just watched to many videos and people were saying its hard I even watched one girls and she said she was denied because she was honest about vomiting a couple times

        The psych eval makes sure your mentally fit/balanced to take on the surgery and a good candidate...

      My gym is closed on the weekends. I feel sad. I wish I could just go workout. I miss it. President's Day they are closed too. I am like  . This interferes with my workouts. Now, I have to workout at home. Well, I have a jump rope and a medicine ball.
