Anyone want to be fat again?

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

There was another thread about the skin yesterday, someone had seen in a support group a guy who was using a combo of prep H, and something else, wrapping in plastic wrap, sleeping in the plastic wrap overnight, and had amazing results, but I cant remember what the other product was, maybe someone else read the thread? . It is a temporary fix, I beleive.

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?

Hell, NO! I feel good, I'm healthy, I can do things I couldn't do before, I look good in clothes and my confidence and self esteem are very high. My butt is gone, my boobs are deflated, and I have batwings on my arms but I don't care. I used to be in pain and unable to do anything, on meds, had big back-boobs, rolls and saddlebags. I was drowning in self-pity and self-loathing. I prefer the saggy-baggy healthier, happier me.

I don't have hunger at all if I stay away from simple carbs. I have tons of energy and have since immediately following my surgery a year ago, probably because I'm eating better - lots of Protein and complex carbs. I lost a lot of hair but just went to a shorter hairstyle which I'm keeping short until the new growth catches up (I already have 2 inches of new growth). I found a Protein powder that cured my constipation. I have never had a problem finding something to eat at any restaurant I go to, except the fast food places that have nothing but garbage. My boobs are pretty much gone but I had a bra fitting at Victoria's Secret and now know my correct size and what type of bra helps my girls look better. For every problem you mention there is a solution.

The key to happiness is always going to come from inside yourself - it's a positive attitude and outlook. Focus on positives, not negatives. It's harder for some people than others but with a conscious effort you can feel better about yourself and what you've accomplished so far. I'm sure there must be SOME improvement to your life since losing 50 pounds. It's still a lot of weight - I can't lift 50 pounds!

Whoa yummymummy !!! I know you're frustrated about the saggy skin, but I had no idea you were having such other problems too ! Congrats on loosing 50 lbs in 7 months ! Great job ! You might want to see your Dr. about the constant hunger and low energy, and ask him/her about the bathroom problem. If you're drinking enough fluids this should'nt be a problem at all. I cant help you on the hair loss, never had any. As far as eating out, why cant you eat out ? Im on vacation right now, so im eating out more than usual, but just ordering a small version of my meal, eating a little and saving the rest for another meal. Hope this helps, please see your Dr. ASAP ! I wish you well, let us know how you're doing !!!

Heck no!!!! I knew the skin would bother me though, I wanted to look decent naked.. It isn't just about health, I needed to lose weight yes for my health but also for my personal well being my mental health. I hated being fat. I love the new me. I saved pre wls surgery specifically for plastics. It was worth every penny. I love the way I look now and I could care less that I drive a used car now, my hubby and I will get way more miles out of my new body than ANY car. I invested in myself and it was sooooo worth it. I love being naked now. Something I used to dread.
