Did anyone watch last nights episode?? This lady is so delusional and just threw away a great opportunity of help for both her addiction and weight loss. I think if she didn't take her husband back in she would have tried harder.... maybe... who knows.... 😒

I am going to have to go watch it now. I became obsessed with that show after getting my surgery date but stopped watching when my first attempt at WLS failed. Being 8 days post op I see why you never see them the first month after surgery. They would not be inspirational talking about how sick of the full liquid diet they are😂😂

I just watched the Angie J episode. Google reveals she has a go fund me account and in an update posted 2 days ago she claims she has been approved for surgery and is filming a second episode. Crazy stuff!!!

Hopefully she is sober and is really serious about what the doctor says. She kept claiming he was attacking her and she refused to actually listen to him and his advice. I'm not sure how successful she will actually be if she were to get the surgery. 🤨

I wondered if she had ever seen the show before when she was saying she didn’t meet his goals but she thinks she did good enough and that she deserved surgery

who knows! That really irritated me when she kept saying she deserved it. I'm like you didn't follow the guidelines that were given to you... so no you didn't deserve anything. How do you expect to be successful after the surgery if you refuse to follow the guidelines prior to surgery.

Plus I was tested for drugs and nicotine and I knew it from the get go. How did she not know that was going to be found out. And she was shown smoking on camera.... crazy stuff. Love that show!! I couldn’t wait for the scenes where she saw the doctor because I knew he was going to put her in her place.

Doubt you can hide very much from a Good Bariatric Surgeon, by now they HAVE HEARD it all!

        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.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
