No dear. I commented on people that directed their attacks to me and not her. Think before you type.

First off I was speaking to the OP in terms of her concerns with having surgery with Dr. Almanza. If you are comfortable with your reasons, good for you, however this is her post so I was answering her question. It's her choice, not mine or yours, who operates on her. She has a right to do her research and make an educated decision. I'm happy you are comfortable with your choice but there is not need to be a bully and respond to every poster who has a different opinion than you. I wasn't even speaking to you. If I were I would have quoted you!

Also, excuse my language, but I really don't give a **** who you voted for or why. That has nothing to do with weight loss surgery or this post. It's just you trying to start problems. It's none of your business what my political stance is and completely irrelevant to this board and this conversation. For all you know I could be the biggest Trump supporter on the planet, or I could not be.... doesn't matter. Last I checked Trump doesn't perform weight loss surgery nor is he a surgeon.

I am commenting to people that comment back to me. I am not making up her mind. How can I do that!?? I said I was going to the same doctor and then the swarm came and was directed to me like your message. Please take you nastiness some where else. Perhaps you need to be a lawyer.

First of all don't call me dear, it's condescending. Also it sounds like you need to take your own advice and think before you type.

You quoted me. I never said a word to you. I never attacked you or responded to your one of your posts at all. I made one response to the OP advising her to do her research and you quoted me. Said you did your research (don't care) and then told me who you voted for (again don't care) and asked me what I felt about that. And then told me to leave you alone when I never once spoke to you. Sounds like you need to get a hobby and find a more productive use of your time if your just going to come on here and fight people.

I was never once nasty either. You realize this isn't your original post right? That some people on here might be commenting to the person who posted the original thread!

You just want a argument. I am a personal friend of the person that is the start.

Funny how you are a personal friend, and yet your second post in the thread tells her where and when you are having surgery as if she didn’t know. Also funny is that Alex Beecher urged against using Dr. A in the beginning, and yet you gave him a thumbs up. Hmmmm. Can Dr. A be offering a refer a friend - get yours free special? LOL!

I see that. Just have had it in this day and age with ppl misrepresenting something I hold so dear, causing more harm than good. Can't be silent anymore. I know I don't have all the answers and have misunderstood things at times, so when other "Christians" can't have that same self realization, it's hard to sit on my hands. Admittedly, this probably isn't the forum for my activism. I'll blame my early rise and not enough coffee for my lapse in judgement to engage with someone like her publicly. Regardless...Best of luck to the OP (and the other chick)! Hope you find a wonderful surgeon in whom you can have confidence in for such a huge life change because they're out there!



Not to mention the fact she thinks the only way to avoid complications is to follow surgeons directions and look at pictures? You can have plenty of complications simply from the surgeon, your body, or just the situation. It's a dangerous surgery and lots of people have complications the fact that she thinks that she's immune to them simply because she's in God's hands is ridiculous. Good luck to her... you all have done your part.. I appreciate this input. And hopefully the op does too.. Thankfully my surgeon was qualified and I did lots of research.

This will be the lady with complications who asks God 'why!!!!??' and he'll say 'my Messengers told you the doctor was a wack job, but you made a choice to worship a false idol and have him perform the sugery anyways'

No you are very wrong. You arrogance of think you know what God thinks truly amazes me. We are simply piles of ash. How can any of us know His finite mind. I believe in my doctor and think what you are doing is wrong. I best go before the lightening strikes. Anyone else out there know more than me? IMG_0024.JPG

OK come on think about that statement really. ? You just said that if I believe my life is in Gods hands and following directions of my doctor that’s ridiculous. That doesn’t make any sense. My life is always in my Lords hands. He always taking care of me. It is His choice when I die not mine and not yours. You people are showing that you think you are highly intelligent. I’m not seeing that. I am seeing self-centered individuals that are arrogant and rude and really don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re all out trying to just generate business for somebody else which is not my doctor that’s the honest to God’s truth. Quit giving me all your crap. You really not need to find a way to have joy maybe if you go back to hell and steal it back You’ll be OK. I don’t believe you give two hoots about anyone else but yourself.

      Hi!
      Thank you for replying.   It means the world to me.  It also confirmed what I been feeling about which procedure to choose.   I fall into the category as you do and elected the sleeve as it seemed to be less invasive and recovery would be better and faster,  however I am so afraid to regain the weight back since I rarely eat and obesity runs in my family.   I have two siblings that had the bypass and they have been successful.  My sister was in the high 400's and is about 140 now and has been for several years since her procedure.  I guess I felt that the sleeve would allow me to have more control, however I realized that I can't control my genetics and that is one of the biggest reasons that I am here.  Yes, I have not always made the best choices but trust me when I say that I have been on the loss and regain + more rollercoaster weight ride for yrs! I have spent so much money as I am sure you have as well as many others who are going through this.  It is not easy and anyone who thinks this is a copout is crazy!!! This has been harder than anything I have done including hiring a personal trainer to kick my butt in the gym! And still with all the gym hours, clean eating "not to mention the clean eating cost" I knew it was time that I moved to the next step to finally be who I know in my head and heart cause when I see myself in the mirror,  well let's just say is not the girl I see in my mind. 
      So thanks again for your reply and I hope that we can keep in touch through our journey. 
      😊

      I'm going in for a sleeve revision October 4th. It worked well for me, and I am not back to my starting weight. However, a revision is strongly encouraged at this time (there are additional medical issues). I have decided to forgo the insurance process, even though I know I would eventually be approved. "Eventually" is the key issue here. I have a small window to create this to where it will not impact my work or home life as much, and waiting for the insurance approval would take over a year.

      I just read @BoredCW's status post and also want to lament the loss of my butt.  Looking at me the side, my back is basically flat from my neck to my knees.  My jeans have lovely fabric folds draping from my backside from lack of filling.
      Two days ago, I was sitting on a worn couch at the gym and I could feel the springs and count how many I was sitting on.  Told the Kid and she said she wants to find her childhood alphabet fridge magnets in the basement to spell out words and have me sit on them and do some "butt-braille-reading" 😂

        HI-LAR-ious! I love your kid!!!

        Yeah, we all suffer from noassatall syndrome. :(

        Yes. I think the spandex in jeans is the only thing that helps keep the sag below the pockets form looking ridiculous. Even leggings wrinkle there.

        Ah, our disappearing collective butts.

        I am seriously considering changing my plastics plan. I am booked for an arm lift in December, but my summer obsession with arm exercises has improved the look of them quite a bit to the point that I think I may hate my butt more than my arms. Should I do a butt lift instead?!?! In conjunction with?!?!?

        I am trying to cultivate an obsession with butt exercises but its not working so far...

      4. 2Bsmaller18

        I don't think you could do both at the same time. For me personally it's arms. I have granny wrinkles down to my elbows. I can always dover my body with tshirts, pants, etc but unless I wear long sleeves my arms are an issue. I also can't wear a small enough jacket since it fits everywhere but too tight in the arms. They measure around 13.5 inches. Can you compromise and get the smaller arm lift. I don't know if that saves much $ or recovery but if your arms improved that much maybe just a tweek will work?

      5. ms.sss

        The difference in price for a mini arm lift and the full arm lift at my surgeon is less thank 2K and probably not worth the savings. May as well pay the extra bit and get the full arm lift as my sag also reaches my elbows. You are right though, my arms see the light of day way more than my butt does...I'll have to see if the continued butt exercises will change my mind down the road (but it's looking more and more that a butt lift is in my future)

        P.S. At the beginning of my 2 week pre-op diet, my upper right arm measured 17.75 inches in circumference. Now its 10. And that is with the extra skin still.

      On the 3 week plateau from hell.. It seems like an endless desert with sand dunes that represent the 1-2 pounds gain then dropped from day to day. Met with my weight loss group tonight and was told its normal. That this is sometimes like a step, plateau then drop, plateau then drop. Only for the plateau's to go on longer the farther away from the surgery date I get. Much like EDM, I can't wait for the drop. 
      On top of it all, I lost my ass. Seriously.. its gone. All that cushion that I enjoyed lounging on eating what ever I ate, watching what ever was on the computer or tv... is gone. That glorious support system is vamoosed. I know this because my ass (tailbone) hurts all the time. I'm sitting on bone now and its sore. I am my own literal Pain in the Ass! (My family would say whats new, but who cares about them.. my butt hurts.) I have yet to bring a pillow with me everywhere I go to sit on, but I'm getting ready to as I sit for my job working on computers. So far losing the weight is a Pain. I hope it gets better.

        Hang in there, the plateau will end eventually. Also I feel you on the butt thing.

      2. FluffyChix

        I have a butt pillow. I'm not proud. :D

        The plateaus suck!!!! Keep the faith and motor on!
