I am so sorry you had to go through that! I hope you will not let this discourage you. Keep your head up and remember, this time next year there will be less of you to LOVE!!

Good luck with your first class!

Snereb, I really think you missed my point! I was not making fun of the jerks, nor was I suggesting that the OP do so either. I was trying to couch the experience in a way that made it better for the OP...a reason, if you will, to feel a little better about it.

Push come to shove, every one of us has experienced some version of that, be it a funny look, sometimes rude comments, or whatever else. And a lot of the time, we aren't even aware of it because it is done behind our backs. Unfortunately for the OP it was in her face, even if the perpetrators didn't know it was.

So I tried ito lighten it up and put it behind the OP. The best revenge REALLY IS living well -- and if making light of it helps it recede into yesterday quickly, well, that's a good thing.

Several years ago as I was walking into a WW meeting a couple of idiots yelled out of their car "get your $$$ back is not working"! I gave them the finger but honestly was hurt,angry and disappointed. Later I laughed but to be honest every time I remember the incident it hurts. I'm glad I have my band and will loose this weight someday and feel good about myself and I hope those little bastards are as big as elephants by now:biggrin:.

I don't really get the replies about them doing driveways for a living having anything to do with their likelihood to make fun of people.

You can find mean-spirited people in any profession. Having worked in the medical field for years and years, even doctors and professionals (not all, only a select few) making fun of patients or other people. I think this has more to do with upbringing, environment and personality than profession.

Never let people get you down . . . when you are back to your normal self and sporting your new body, you can always give people like this the cold shoulder. I am sure they are the same kind of people that would probably make comments about some pretty girl walking along.

We all have feelings no matter how tough we act .I can understand how it made you feel,I have been there myself when a snidey comment has been made..and yes can laugh it off at the time-but it still hurts like hell. Yes we have all made steps by getting the band,but untill we no longer feel selfconscious about our weight thoughtless comments will still touch a nerve. Good luck on your banding journey.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
