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

        What state are you in????

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
