You are hilarious and twisted. Love it.

You are not the first person to call me twisted..... hehehe.... I like it

in 2001 i was working with a girl. She was very thin, I was not at my heaviest, but over 200lbs. She always wore very stylish clothes, but she would always have something to say about people's weight, myself included. You know the fat people are gross and lazy... She and i didn't get along. I had to leave that dept because one of us was going to die.... hehe... (for real). Fast forward to 2012 three years banded and looking amazing. I left that company in 2009 only weeks after my band. I was in the store and she came up to me and said, Hey Chris, how much weight have you lost..... I said..... looks like the 89lbs you found... I know it was not right.... but man at the time... it felt soooooo good to put her in her place.

Today I got my first comment since surgery:

It was sort of in the line of "what the hell, where did you go? There is nothing left of you". I got 30 more kgs to go 😂😏

For some reason, I always seemed to be on the receiving end of unfiltered crap out of people's mouths! From "oh, why did you let yourself go like this?" (coming from a 300 lbs woman), to "thank God you lost that weight, I felt so bad for your husband!"and sooo much more, I could write a book!

I was younger back then and every word hurt so bad, but could never find my voice or even think of a comeback. I'm now older and could be very causticly sarcastic, I take no prisoners!!😉

      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

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.
