Trying to start dating again



Recommended Posts

I was banded on June 2nd and so far I've lost 21 lbs and I can already see a huge improvement in my confidence and I'm ready to start dating again. Before I had surgery I was very insecure and wanted to date but figured most guys wouldn't want to date me. It would be nice to have someone to talk to who has also had WLS because that gives us something to connect with. Any advice on dating after WLS or any guys that are single who are looking for the same thing please reply :)

Such a good idea to find someone going through the same thing. Good luck to you! :)

I saw a post here on Bariatric Pal from a person named "Bari" about dating that said this...

So, I just saw an ad when at the cinema last week for a dating site for those who have undergone or who are currently undergoing significant weight loss. It's called WeightlessDate.com. It encourages team work and support based on experiencing the same challenges and accomplishments. I thought it was a great idea and wanted to share with the community.

@@hbugg This was something I was debating when wanting to get back into dating. I think it would be great to find someone who is going through the same thing as I am. I am on one dating site but I haven't been active on it because I don't really know how I would talk about WLS.

It is hard to talk about WLS. I just don't really know how to bring it up in a conversation.

@@hbugg yeah I thought about putting it in my profile saying that I recently made a healthier change in my life and stuff like that but I don't know how that would come across.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.

      This video is an excerpt from the same, larger video. In this video, I pull out only the Food Addiction portion. Its such an important revelation for me and it may help someone else, thus I think it warrants its own video. 🙂
