I am a slow weight loser though.

...slow weight loss is still weight loss! Keep chugging along, doesn't matter how fast we get there - just that we do :)

. I say screw them all. Be who you are. And when that weight drops and you in w bikini and they are in a tankini and shorts at the beach you can say what have you done to improve your healthy life... these negative nellies don't make my life go round I do. And you know what I have no health issues any more.

I was told by a doctors m. a. that I "wasn't that big" and "have you tried dieting?" Are you kidding me??

....literally the next day after surgery, I was wheeled to radiology trying my best to keep my nausea at bay and not throw up...I somehow swallowed the IV contrast and kept it down (albeit I have no idea how) and found myself holding on by a thread. The radiologist walked in , looked me up and down and said " REALLY? WAS THERE A NEED FOR YOU TO DO THIS?! YOU ARE NOT THAT BIG!!!!!" Me, fresh off my pain pump, told him to go F&CK himself and that I would be sure to let my surgeon know he was questioning his ethics by operating on a person "NOT THAT BIG". BTW...250 lbs on a 5'4 frame...isn't LITTLE! SIGH.

Yup, almost the same experience, so I switch it. Instead of say I lost this much because they cannot comprehend it. I say yeah I lost a 3 year and a 7 year old 70 pounds, etc. I said to one of my girlfriends pick up your three old. She did, I said be muscle relaxed and feel his weight. She said holy ****. Then I told to pick up her 7 year old and do the same my last words to her was that is what I was carrying a around. Now she respects my decision.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
