Obese since early childhood

Anyone obese since early childhood?

Does this have an effect on outcome? On surgery's ability to reset your set point?

2). Anyone bese since early childhood years after the surgery? How is your hunger?

Hi I was obese off and on since early childhood, I had a gastric bypass on November the 21st 2017 My starting weight was 338 lbs and my weight today is 195 lbs. My hunger disappeared after surgery and I don't think about food like I use to. I lost the weight without any exercise because I have two bad hips, I now have two hip replacements and I am looking forward to being able to do the things I couldn't. I choose a bypass over a sleeve because I didn't think a sleeve would work for me.

And I salute you for your accomplishments. I was a Fat Baby too, 35 inches tall weighing 36 pounds at a year, the size of a 2 1/2 year old. But I will be having, at a young age of 72, a gastric bypass September 5th,at Ohio State University-Wexner Medical Center in Columbus Ohio with my surgeon Dr Needleman presiding, probably have a roomful of peopke, it is a teaching hosputal, he is a full Professor in the Medical College, makes me no never mind, They,can invite the Ohio National Guard in, I just want my surgery, I chose bypass for several reasons, like you a sleeve would not work for me. Not one whit nervous, for I drowned my fears in my tears long ago. Now I just want to get on with life, continue losing,weight and as this day she'll cracks and then,disappears the REAL Frustr8 will shine through. And the world will know what I have known all along, I am a wonderful person to know and be friends with!😛

I have also been obese since childhood. I remember being on and off diets since the age of ten or eleven.

I do get hungry but not in the same way as before surgery. I am not constantly thinking about what things I am going to eat and my cravings for most foods are gone. I do still occasionally crave things but the compulsion to give in and buy them is much less and easy to resist at this point.

I felt bypass was right for me as I have been obese my whole life that I can remember.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      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
