I'm having surgery for health reasons... I want to live. I hadn't really even thought about physical appearance until I read this post. I guess because I was born fat and have been fat all of my life, fat is all I know. It will be interesting to see how I cope with sagging this and that everywhere but in my mind it can't be worst than dealing with fat and the teasing and harassment that goes with that all of my life. At the end of the day if I just get to live so I can have a nice long healthy and enjoyable retirement from work (5 years and counting :) ) I'm going to be a happy camper. Maybe I can scrounge up money for skin removal surgery later down the road it bothers me too much. I love your prose, good luck with working through your demons.

And Beta98 I love your post,and the fact this stream is back out in public. The OP spoke to me as well as you, I have a lot,of the "I Wonders" that she did, I think,we all do. I suspect. as I get smaller, and it is starting even though i am a "slow'-losing "presurg . I say to myself once, I'm put on all,liquids, I'll speed up. Still,may not too fast, post- menopausals are pokey at that. I find myself angry that some of the men who wouldn't to give me a second glance before now are friendly, perhaps,they are only picking up,on my new confidence, but irrationally I seethe inside.😬 Maybe as more pounds leave I'll come to terms with their response, who knows? I have spent so many years being the pudgy buddy, could I actually be desirable? All,I know for certain, surgery and the further weight loss are going,on the surface, to change my appearance, can the inner "me" cope with the change? Stay tuned my friends, this could get interesting.😁 And I will not be a sleever but have a bypass but most everything else will hold true for me. Stick around, okay?

I will, stick around for me too. I'm on a long plan months of dieting first, then weeks of counseling, preop diet and finally surgery... but it gives me time to work through what life will be like after its done
