Oh my gosh I dream of having thigh gap!!! I've got like mighty goose or turkey drumstick thighs. Skinnier toward the knees, then very thick at the top. LOL.

CONGRATS you look great!

I got some gaping at my mid thigh when I put my knees together, which was odd because I don't think that's ever happened.

And upper, inner thigh sag is SO GROSS!!! It's like I've got some odd 90 year old guy's skin for a lapel for my junk... how's that for a visual! (maybe it's not THAT bad... but that's how I feel about it)

TY Matt! I was all set to thank you, the spit out my coffee when I read about your new lapels for your old man balls! I'm putting that right up there on the shelf next to my hairy chocolate waterbed image so I can take them down and amuse myself for hours on end!

Gawd I :780_sparkling_heart: you. You crack me up!!! ROFL!!!

So on a more sober note...yeah. That weirdness you describe about the thigh sag. I swear after my initial losses that area looks like I had two ginormous elephant balls right there. I called it my scrotum. Ha! And now that I'm losing more, the scrotum is shrinking--I never thought it would. I thought that was going to be my new fate. "Congratulations Fluffy, you're now thin and in normal weight bracket, tell her what she's won, Johnny!" And Johnny would say, "You've won a ginormous pair of elephant balls! And for fun you will now go through life with these ginormous elephant testicles pasted onto your thighs just below your See You Next Tuesday!"

But now they are shrinky-dinkin slightly and are now terrifyingly like OLD elephant balls, cuz they are very crepey and thin/wrinkly skin. bahahahaha *snort* Good times.

TGIF!

Glad I can provide some levity! And that's great with the shrinkage, and this might be the only time you'll see a man say they are hoping for some shrinkage in that area LOL!!!

At least you all don't have to deal with body parts "touching down" when you sit on the toilet.... I leaned forward once to get something from the cabinet and was greeted with a very cold surprise.

      Has anyone reading this lied about your weight just to get the surgery done?

       I don't know what to do for my birthday being that I just had weight loss surgery I know that I have a lot to be grateful for

        What would you normally do?

        Instead of planning a meal, what about an activity that you enjoy.

        If the weather is nice, plan a picnic and explain that you are not eating and will not be providing a cake instead if you wanted you could have birdseed bags that people could use to feed the birds or the ducks in a pond at the park where the picnic would be held. Everyone could bring their own lunch if they wanted to attend and you would only have to make little birdseed bags.

        If nature walks are more your style, do something along those lines and just let everyone know that for your birthday you are planning an activity and not a party. There will be no cake and ice cream if that is what they are looking for, they can just stay home.

        You could ask your friends to join you in a day of caring and you could all volunteer together somewhere either serving at a soup kitchen, helping at a shelter or a children's center or even a senior center.

        Of what?

      2. GreenTealael

        Of what indeed. I thought at first I should give up coffee, nonsense.h Then I thought I should go out for coffee with friends more. Then I thought I should go to Italy for coffee with friends and get a new maker...

      Hi i'm dorijae, and into my pre-op evals, still undecided as to sleeve or bypass, but thinking bypass.  Happy to see this support group.  Have read some of the blogs on surgery, etc.

        Welome dorijae2018, there are lot of supportive people on the forums, if you have any questions many are only too happy to help

        Welcome. We are pretty friendly most of the time. Use the spyglass search option at the top of the forum page to find specific topics. We all decide on the type of surgery based on our current personal health conditions, what we prefer our outcome to be, and research we do. Some prefer bypass because they have consistent GERD, or fear getting it, some want a little faster initial weight loss, or consider it the best standard in bariatrics. Others prefer the sleeve because they do not want malabsorption of vitamins - particularly iron, want their stomach to have the valve and vagus nerve stay intact, don't want a pouch that can stretch, and lose just a little slower over a longer time frame. The real outcomes for overall weight loss is not much different in either surgery at the 18 month mark. It is a very personal decision and don't let anyone make it for you. Read and read some more and ask your surgeon a lot of questions. Good luck.
