Did You See the Penny Saeger Episode on My 600Lb Life?



Recommended Posts

I saw a re-run of an episode from Season 2 of My 600lb Life...(yes, I secretly watch this show...) Even though I know I will never experience the kinds of monthly losses that most people experience on that show, it really did inspire me in May to start my own salvation journey with weight loss--again--for about the millionth time.

I watched the Penny Saeger episode with almost the same fixated attention one would give to a speeding train about to crash. And I wondered if anyone else saw this episode and had any thoughts about it?

Penny Saeger Update



I just watched this clip. And i used to coupon and i stopped bc there r rarely ever coupons for healthy food. The occasional salad bag coupon or yogurt. But other than that...its frozen meals n chicken nuggets. As i started to get into a healthier life style i left couponing behind. If i see a good coupon occasionally for healthy options ill use it but other than that ..nope.
Its sad bc her husband seems to want to help and she isnt allowing it

I put it on when i'm walking laps....somehow seeing those visceral images of the pain and stress of severe obesity gives me the gumption to finish my daily exercise goal.

And I love Dr. Now. Like...really love him and want to adjust my "eating habit" to make him proud. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

It's a brutal reminder that the struggle is real and we didn't just end up at our highest weights by accident. :(

Here's my new universal advice to us all--MOST ESPECIALLY me...

"Don't penny your golden shot at WLS."

(Here a reddit update on Penny.)

Oh ok then! I saw it! LOL!!! I watched that, then I think it's called Family by the Ton? About the family who are all MO and who are trying to get a handle on it and their lives? Then saw the Penny show. I don't know how I missed it from Season 2. Needless to say, I woke up very motivated to travel the straight and narrow path and own my own misbehaviors!!!

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
