I only have one tattoo...a tiny wolf on the back of my thigh howling up at "the full moon" :)

I'm not an ink person, but I let my daughter's bestie do it, she's an intern tattoo artist and needed work for her portfolio:) She did a beautiful job.

I have a few tattoos, and am planning a new one for after surgery (in June). I have one of those fat pads on my upper back, just under the neck... that will likely be the first area of fat to go adios, so I’m planning a large tattoo there to Celebrate.

I already have multiple tattoos but I do not plan on getting a tattoo to signify my weight loss. Only for fear if I gained it back lol.

Yes! I would like a foot tattoo of a molting snake to commemorate my adventure. I have an inspiration photo from google that is somewhat loosely similar to what I would like the artist to design - particularly the intertwining and the white, lacy molted skin. But I'd like a much more colorful snake and obviously the size and shape of the two snakes would have to be fit to the top of my foot. I really prefer to let the artist take over as much as possible, I feel my pieces are truly unique and a sort of bond of trust between me and the artist. I know most people are way too a-n-a-l (sorry, trying to avoid filters haha) and want to control what it looks like which I totally understand, cause it's going to be on your body forever, after all! But anyway, yes, I definitely want a tattoo in honor of this huge life change.

I am 53 years old, no tattoos yet but I am considering getting one as part of this journey. I am thinking of the symbol for new beginnings. I’ll add it to my comment if I can figure out how to do it lol

I’m thinking a Phoenix tattoo.

I never got a tattoo because I always wanted to lose weight, and thought my skin would be saggy and it would ruin it. Also, placement is harder when you are overweight. So now, I def want to get one. I don't know if it will be to signify my WLS journey, but I will always know it wouldn't have been possible without it.

I'm getting a tattoo of Arwen's necklace from Lord of the Rings. Always been a huge fan of the series and loved the story of her choosing her life path despite what others wanted her to do kind of like what I'm doing now. :)

      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.
