Sick and Tired of the fat...going to seminar tomorrow

Recommended Posts

ok, so i am overweight (5'5" and 248 lbs) 29 years old and sick and tired of being fat. People are always thinking that I am older, I believe it is because I am fat. I went to the ER one day and read the notes from dr. It states "slightly overweight" young woman :). Also, my PCP has a label on my chart that says "OBESE" (bright orange sticker by the way):sleep:.

I am sick and tired and ready to take some serious measures! My coworker and I are the only obese people in the entire company (just about). So we have decided to go to the seminar together. I am excited but disgusted that it has come this far. I have done everything, you name it, i have done it (with no success by the way).

Well, going to the seminar tomorrow. hope its informative and it is the right fit for me....I will keep you all informed. Wish me (and my coworker) luck!!! :eek:

Hi and welcome to LBT! Don't be disgusted for seeking surgery! Be glad that you ahve that alternative available to you. Your life will be so different if that's the way you decide to go. I can honsetly say I wish it had been an alternative for me when I was your age. I know things would have been so different for me over the past 9 years.

Good luck to you and your friend! If you both decide to do it, you will be such great support for each other! Let us know what you think after the smeinar.

I felt like I was reading my own post. A co-worker and I went through it together. all the appts, emotions, everything. I was approved and she was denied. It was my worst fear come true. I always thought it would have been the other way around though. As she has health problems and I dont. She has been a real sport and very supportive to me. I dont know how she's done it. I would be devestated had it been the other way around. She is in the final stage of her appeals with the insurance. I pray she is approved as she deserves this just as much or more than I do. Just remember if you are approved, its NOT a quick fix. Its much slower than I expected and has discouraged me from time to time. Just read on here and educate yourself as much as possible to prepare for everything. They dont tell ya "everything" at the docs office. :rolleyes:

      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!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        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.

        Think about all you will gain. Seriously, nothing is better than my size 4 jeans!

        There is nothing wrong with burgers and wings...it's only the amount that is the issue. Why not have a burger but take away the bun? You dont need to eat the entire burger. My favorite is using the sous vide to cook them and then giving them a little color in the frying pan. It's all protein anyhow.

        As for the wings, why not try making wings at home? By making your own sauce you can cut down on the empty calories.

        By giving up foods, you can also cause issues, mental ones. The idea is to not eat all of it, but to enjoy a little portion. That's why we have the stomach changes to begin with. But in all takes things slowly and see what your stomach allows.
