Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

State Police thought I was a druggie! 🤣



Recommended Posts

Long story short, fine gentlemen in blue had to visit my home because of a domestic violence issue perpetrated by my "recovering" "former" meth addict brother.

Well, the guy looks at my ID, knows my brother did drugs........ And my ID is from a year before my surgery..... And so, he gives me the run down, flashlight in my eyes checking me out and all that and was quizzing me on drug use..... Because in his mind that was the only explanation for the dramatic differences between my ID and what I look like now.

Like.... Marshmallow Man vs Walking Dead character...

I laughed, showed him my only immediate proof, which was my "special meal card" my doctor gives out to patients to politely ask restaurants to eat from kids or senior menus, or have special small portions.

He laughed. I laughed. We all had a good time, until we had to go back to the "interview."

And I got one from my Bariatric Dietician at the Ohio State University- WEXNER Medical Center. Asked Roy why it was on the Reverse of his Business Card? He just chuckled and said " If the resturant or in Your case- the Handsome Dude dressed in Blue- they can call him and he will re- state it personally. I don't fear being catorgorized as DRUGGIE as much as my appearance of failure to thrive/ starvation- after all I AM one- half the size of my ID picture, even if I put down 250 I was really pushing 350 at THAT TIME- ho- hum I need to renew it the Day after Christmas, yes my Commonwealth friends -Boxing Day- the difference This Year I am the size of a Small envelope instead of the Parish PoorBox- zippety do dah for ME!

They sell them on Amazon, but I don't remember how much they were. My hospital gave me one. Maybe ask your surgeon and they could make you one?

Mine are all gone basically. Just a little purplish line at the main hole

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
