Congratulations and thanks for all your inspiring and encouraging posts as well as the fun challenges!

I've been on here since Apr '18, about 6 weeks after my surgery. Wish I'd found the site sooner!

I've only been here myself about a year and a half, but I second Orchids and Dragon' s emotion, I too have found it a wonderful support and information site!

10 years. I wanted surgery long ago, but my insurance wouldn't cover it. Not until I became disabled and got Medicare would I have surgery. I'm now just over 4 months out and 65 pounds down. Wish I could have had surgery sooner, but better late than never!

Congratulations @GreenTealael !

I have always appreciated your humor and insights here in my year or so of lurking reading.

Raising a toast to you now,

with a big bottle of endangered glacier water. πŸ˜€

Cheers!

And I'll join in with my Ensure Blue Raspberry Electrolyte powder drink, don't think I'm urinating enough, maybe the moisture is going into perspiration so this hour I'm drinking it 2 ounce cups at a time. Gosh I do miss being able to drink enough at a time to feel truly hydrated. Ah I knew in my mind that I would have restrictions. See every one else talks about "food funerals" , I mourn my pint and quart bottle bye-byes. Didn't realize the joy of a free and easy swallow!🍢

@frust8Nice to see you updated your stats! I love following your progress! But, wasn't your surgery Sept 5? It says the 4th. I only remember your date because it's my birthday!

I started reading posts a couple of months before my surgery but don't think I actually joined until after surgery. I don't post much but do find much support from others. I'm almost at my doctor's goal, but think my personal goal will be a little lower.

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me inΒ a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told herΒ i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you?Β or is it just me) Β 
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
