Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

Dangerous request?



Recommended Posts

I'm not looking to date but rather a nice "pen pal." Is that even what they are called anymore LOL. I'm looking for male or female friends that I can relate to during my weight loss journey. I was sleeved in May 2014. Almost at goal and feeling somewhat lonely as I don't have anyone in my circle of friends to communicate with. Not looking for a weirdo or someone to get a bunch of emojis from. Just some good and fun conversation. If you're interested in a "buddy" to have good,conversation I am too.

We used to have a chat board here on Bariatric Pal. Many of us used to participate, but Alex got rid of it because he didn't see it was being used to his expectations...suggest to send a note to Alex and ask for it to be restored.

I can relate to what you're feeling. I was sleeved in September and I am now only 11 pounds from my target, but anxious to keep the momentum.

I have the iPad version and cannot locate how to use a private chat. Can someone please share with me how to do that? The web version is probably easier to navigate. I'll check that out later. Thanks everyone! Happy to make new friends.

Use the DM feature and just add who you want to the conversation. Click on the menu grid in the upper left corner. Then scroll down to message.

Can I create a private email thread with the ten or twenty people who were regular at chat or is the function limited to one person?

But doesn't that eliminate any growth in the discussion? Are you trying to keep people out? I would want to meet more people as a single rather than bar anyone

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
