The episode that was on Aussie TV last night was all about weight. One patient had extreme anorexia and the other patient needed to have his very successful bypass reversed because he had Crohn's disease. It was more dramatic because he had never told his husband that he used to be obese and had had a bypass.

I liked the first few episides but haven't watched in a while. Sounding more and more like House, MD (which I loved)

@elcee

The surgeons (on TV) working around patient in OR referred to WLS as the "easy way out"😠

I cringed loudly to myself - "i don't believe he just said that, a doctor""

@FluffyChix

I know, i couldn't believe it!!! "we" are all shocked, upset when we hear from our friends/family saying

"WLS is the easy way out" - but a Dr.?!! I know this is just a tv show - but many other "real" docs might feel the same way.

I guess the writers have their fingers on the pulse of our culture.

People still think it's elective to choose better health, by any means necessary...

Yes I cringed too. Unfortunately that is the popular perception. What would have been good would have been if someone had corrected him .

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.
