I can't say that I have run into that yet. My surgical team is thrilled with every pound I lose in this pre-operative journey. My answer to a comment such as that would be, thank you for noticing that I'm losing, I'm on a medically supervised diet and exercise program and have been working really hard. While it is exciting to have lost a little bit, my team reminds me that the reason I'm having surgery in the first place is because I need another tool to add to my arsenal in order to make my weight loss goals a reality and to make them stick. I know you want me to be healthy and I appreciate your support.

Yeah, I guess you could say, I've thought about this kind of reaction a lot over the last several weeks. LOL!

I needed the surgery. I'd lost anywhere from 20-60 lbs countless times before (and I had over 200 to lose at my heaviest). The problem was, it always came back. This is the first time I've been able to take off all of my excess weight - and keep it off!

Yea right your not here with the rest of us because you anorexic or bolemick - I am sure non of us have every lost 10 pounds to never gain it back.

My view Not a chance in hell i would loose over 100 pounds in 4 months if i could still slamm vodka eat at happy hour and live my old lifestyle. Also its nobody's business what you decide you are doing this for yourself and only yourself,

I lost over 20 pounds pre-op and was actually getting close to no longer qualifying for surgery and my surgeons were ecstatic! Every pound off before surgery is one pound closer to a safer surgical procedure.

I had my own thoughts that maybe I didn't need to go through surgery since I was doing so well, but then I remembered I've lost 20 pounds a million other times and never kept it off myself, this tool will be essential to me keeping the weight off. Plus, I had a gastric band I really wanted out, so revising was my only hope.

If someone in my life had told me that, I'd just tell them that it's a requirement for me to make my lifestyle changes now and to try to get some weight off for a safer surgical procedure. Then I'd tell them that I have multiple healthcare professionals expressing their feelings that I need the procedure to live my healthiest life and I trust they know what they are recommending to me.

Ultimately, it's no one's business and you don't have to answer to anyone but your surgeon.

I watch a series on youtube called fat doctors. It is about surgery on morbidly obese patiens in the UK. This doctor, Shaw Summers, is the most empatic person I ever have seen on tv.

For every episode he tries to explain why obesity can't be faught with just diet in most cases. Obese patiens can sucessfully loose a few pounds, but the body itself needs more calories and it will always tell them to eat more and more and more. So they wind up jojo-dieting and each time they loose a bit they regain a bit more, slowly loosing the willpower and selfeestem which again tells them to eat more.

I really enjoyed watching the fat doctor episodes, I wish there were more of them.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
