I didn't tell anybody but my husband for just this reason. I didn't want the lectures from others, "Why can't you just eat less and exercise more instead of doing something so extreme like surgery?" I'm sorry you're not getting the support you need.

I was supposed to have bypass surgery Feb of 2018 and didn't have it. I let my family get in my head with their negativity and changed my mind. Biggest mistake of my life. I've gained 38 pounds since then. I just went to the dr yesterday to start the process again. This time it's different because my family is on board this time and dedicated to helping me on my journey. Sorry for the long post just don't want you to make my mistake. Do this for you and your health and don't let others get in your head.

It’s crazy , the majority tell me not to do it is over weight . Always preaching about just eat healthy or work out out . Do get it .
That is an extremely common reaction from what I hear. I'm an only child but my best friend had a bypass and looks wonderful now and is in great health. She saw her 400 lb sister whom she hadn't seen in quite some time at a family reunion and the first thing out of her mouth was You look terrible!!!

Think about it this way if you don't have surgery you die of heart attack or take the risk having surgery. Really a no brainer!

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

        I’m new but I wish you luck in getting back on track. Maybe see a nutritionalist first.
