Topic: RE: New Blog: This Girl is on Fire

I have used this expressiion A LOT recently - know your audience!   I actually DON'T think that fat people are a special interest group or deserve legal protection against hate speech etc (which I know many people here do) - but I'm surprised that you think this would be well received in this community.

I don't understand why you thought it was funny that your super fit sister posted this and that you then thought we would all understand that and why you reposted it.   Stick around here a while and you will see many posts from people who are fat shamed day in and day out - when they are shopping, eating out etc.   Called horrible names and have animal noises made to them ...   I don't see what your sister did is any different to that and I'm so sorry that you allow her to abuse you in this way and feel ok about it.

I don't think you are going to get how most of us feel differently to you about this - I hope that one day you will feel good enough about yourself to tell your sister what a ***** she is!

Topic: RE: New Blog: This Girl is on Fire

Wow!   And you saw nothing wrong with your "sister" posting this on her FB (she sounds an absolute gem, BTW)?  Did you not wonder what she used to say about you when you were fat?    

I think the most surprising aspect of this for me was that YOU found it so hilarious you put it on your blog about your weight loss journey?   I'll bet all the fat and formerly fat people here will be rushing to read it every month from now on ...  knowing how much contempt you have for fat chicks in leggings 

So glad I was never part of sorority - if you two are an indication of the level of maturity it fosters  ...

Most of us sail through this surgery with nothing wrong ...    If something is wrong - your body will let you know (pain, inability to eat etc)

Topic: RE: Vets! You know who you are

You always have to consider the poster - there are some crazy assed vets on here too who will give you all sorts of weird and wonderful information ...    because it works for them and their mental health issues LOL!

I think most vet are here both to pay it forward and to get support for themselves too - it's why I'm still hanging out after all these years!

Preaching to the choir here - I hope surgeons and their RD's/NUTS take this on board one day ...   It pains me to see them still recommending white carbs early out (instead of protein) and fat free or low fat diets!!!!!

Would you consider Xposting this on the surgery forums?

Topic: RE: Choices between Gastric Bypass or Sleeve
On January 4, 2014 at 12:25 PM Pacific Time, MsBatt wrote:

At your BMI, the RNY/gastric bypass and the VSG/Sleeve had about the same long-term results. The RNY/gastric bypass will cause you to ALWAYS malabsorb certain vitamins and minerals, but malabsorption of calories will cease after 18-24 months. Then, with either surgery, you'll be back to diet and exercise.

The Sleeve will leave you with a fully-functional stomach. The RNY/gastric bypass won't. The Sleeve is fairly revisable to the DS, the most effective long-term WLS. The RNY is not.

The RNY is NOT revisable to a DS?   I think there are lots of DS revisions who would argue with that!

Just kidding - I'm assuming you missed out a word?    Just that pre-ops may not realise that and will read that an RNY is not revisable to a DS.

Topic: RE: Totally off topic relationship advice?????

Firstly, you need to talk to him about your intimacy issues ...

Secondly, it is NOT normal to talk like this with an ex - particularly if you are in a relationship with someone else, it's both creepy and inappropriate.  My ex and I are on good terms (we have children) but ugh, I can't even imagine discussing anything intimate or personal with him - soooo would not happen!!!!

If you want this relationship to work, at the very least YOU need therapy (best gift you can give yourself, believe me) and once that is under way, I think couples therapy (with a different therapist) would probably be appropriate too!

Topic: RE: Bariatric Surgery Coverage Petition

This is between Coca Cola and their employees ...  

I had my RNY 9+ years ago, when it was handed out with the luncheon vouchers because it wasn't nearly as popular as it is now - it's success may well end up being it's insurance failure - times are a changing and I think there are more insurances that don't offer it now than do!

I certainly couldn't get it now with the crappy insurance I've got!

I drink my wine up to the point that my food is ready and then I fini**** off once everyone else has finished their meal - I never eat dessert so I have some time between finishing my food and the end of the meal.   If you are not chugging gallons of it, I don't see it as a problem!

Why are we not allowed to post links?  

I know it's against TOS to do it to other WLS sites, but I just posted a link to http://www.shrinkpictures.com/ for someone to put their avatar up - I doubt a YouTube video about fructose is a competititor for OH!

Topic: RE: Favorite vitamins (for WLS grads)?

Start immediately on a good adult multi (2 x day), 1500mg calcium citrate and sublingual B12 every day.   Get to your PCP STAT!!!  and get bloods done and see if you are deficient in anything else so you know what and how much to supplement.

No one should be supplementing blind!!!!!!

^^^^^   This ^^^^^^    and no, there is no pill that helps as the gas is in your abdominal cavity and not your digestive system.   If you do have some gas in your intestines etc you will fart it out and walking will help that too!!!

Topic: RE: Hair Colouring or not

Colouring your hair will make no difference to its health - bleaching may - but most hair colourants have fantastic conditioners in them and make our hair appear thicker and glossier - what's not to love about that?

I will only stop doing my hair when I'm dead - it makes me look and feel good!
