Problem with too much weight loss?!



Recommended Posts

But for those of you interested about no loose skin..so was my bariatric doctor..he said good genes were a main part and more than likely the Vitamins I took as well so he wanted the list and how I took them as well.. I take them religiously every night. Started them a week before surgery.

You look incredible but let me get this straight.... you don’t have any loose skin, even under where your clothes cover? The usual places are arms, thighs, stomach, breasts....

That's what I am thinking as well. 400lbs to 200lbs would leave anyone with excessive skin. 400lbs to 122lbs would be enough excess skin to cover another person. Hell, you could make a leather vest and chaps out of that much excess skin!

My ex-wife went from 522lbs to 160lbs -- so it certainly is possible. My ex had to have several reconstructive surgeries -- they took 22 pounds of skin off her abdomen alone.

My bariatric doctor says I could be in the 1percentil that goes into anorexic mode....wondering if anyone else has ever heard of this? I wasn't informed this Could even happen!

Sorry but your story and what you wrote doesn’t add up.

Number one, anorexia nervosa is a mental condition that makes the person starve themselves because they think they are too fat even when they are thin. A doctor would not diagnose you with anorexia just because you are losing too much weight because of bariatric surgery. You haven’t posted anything regarding how you still think you are obese and you starving yourself to lose weight, so you aren’t anorexic. So your “doctor” story rings shady.

Number 2. Just because you posted a before and after photo doesn’t prove that’s even you in the photo. The woman in the before photo is nowhere near 400 pounds, unless she’s 7 feet tall.

Number 3. Sorry again but NOBODY can lose 280 pounds and not have any loose skin.

Your story has too many holes and doesn’t seem legit.

Re #2, she isn’t 122 pounds, either. And “before” woman was a lot better at keeping her roots covered up.

By tomorrow, she’ll tell us she’s a distributor for those Vitamins.

After I saw her posting pictures of the Vitamins I thought this might be a sales thing. :lol:

Sorry but we did not all fall off the turnip truck yesterday. Too many inconsistencies in your story. Seems like fiction to me and quite a few others. I don’t enjoy telling people I don’t believe them and I’ve never done it on this site before but your story reeks of bs

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

        Drink a protein drink right after your workout, or get more fluids - dizziness can be from dehydration. Push liquids at all times. Good luck.
