Excited about getting sleeve next week but I have been fighting more mental battles than physical ones with family and others telling me the reason I’m having the surgery is because I have “little self discipline “. Very hurtful. I’m wishing now I hadn’t told some people.

I never understood why some people feel like they need to tear down someone who's trying to improve their life.

Ignore them & DO YOU! Do what YOU need to do for YOU! Stay here with us. We'll NEVER bring you down. There's lots of support for you. BE STRONG!! You've got this!

I agree with Nancy. Just do you. This is a personal choice. People will judge, however, that's on them, not you.

I feel you! I wish I hadn't told a lot of people. Still, this isn't about them or their opinions. It's about you and what you think it right for you. They don't know what you've been through or what your day to day struggles are. Even if they love you and mean well, they still don't know. So don't worry about what anyone else thinks. You are the one living your life right now and you're the only one who knows what it's like and what it needs.

Good luck! ❤️

I agree with everyone that replied. I found a book titled “Bariatric Mindset Success” by Kristan Lloyd and it really digs into the emotional part of this journey. She is very relatable because she has had the surgery. I originally bought the book as audible and listen to it at work, but since I like it so much, I bought the paperback.

Check it out you won’t be disappointed.

        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.

      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)
