Support each other



Recommended Posts

Im still single and i think I should date someone who is going in the same path so we can easly get along and support each other, my family loves me so much and I do love them back and they are my priority but I feel like they are having difficulty in understanding what kind of support I need pre and post op. Specifically dite and food control wise. Ive struggled long enough with overweight but am now more scared to be alone in this journey. I wish I can find my other me somewhere nearby

I agree, try and find a local support group. While being single is one thing, friends can support too. I am also single, but right now my main focus is on myself and sticking to the plan so I can get through it without having to worry about what somebody else might think

Sarah you can do this and you will be able to do this and do it successfully. This site has been so informational and inspiring to me. You are not alone period. My family loves me but did not understand why I had the surgery and after 5 weeks, they still don't. During your good days and bad days there are so many folks on this forum who can relate to what you are going through and will be able to provide you with some great suggestions and nuggets to help you to focus on your journey. I also understand you wanting to have someone nearby, but folks here are just a quick text/conversation away too! Again, you are not alone!

If I only knew where I wouldn't be posting online searching for it.

Just call any of the local hospitals. They will tell you if they host support meetings. In my area, all the meetings are open; it doesn't matter where you had surgery. Good luck!

And Mr "Just waiting and oraying" could be at that meeting, maybe if not him, his mama, his Aunt. There is somebody for you, don't fish in the polluted waters of townhouses and bars, you don't want a " bottom feeder" when you deserve a smooth sleek Rainbow Trout in your life! Go for it, You Do Deserve The Best!😝🍀😝

Hmmmm does Alex Need her know if there is a website for us recovering food addicts? Maybe someone should start one. Something like" On Journey Together" sounds better than Stretched Skin Society? L.O.L🎁😝📦

        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.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      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)
