Hey! I'm now 9 months post-op and about 15lbs from goal weight. Wanted to see what people are doing about dating, specifically eating out.

I'm going to dinner with a guy a friend set me up with this weekend and just nervous about him wondering why I don't eat that much of meal.

My surgery is something I've been very open about to friends/family so if I go on several dates with someone I would absolutely tell them but I don't want to do it on the very first date.

I'd suggest ordering a meal, eat what you want, push it around the plate a bit if you have to, and ask for a container to take the rest home. The guy probably won't even notice exactly how much or little you eat. Keep talking and keep his mind on your sparkling personality!

Oh well first off good luck.

Treat this just like you would anything else personal. Don't tell him just like you would never mention any of your exes on the first date either.

Order light, like an appetizer, salad, Soup or side dishes and tell him straight up, you're not a big eater and you're not that hungry. He won't think anything is odd if you handle it that way.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
