Ventral hernia

May 13, 2016

I'm recovering from hernia surgery. I think losing weight made the hernia obvious and it was probably hidden by fat for years. I asked if I could wait to repair it and combine it with a tummy tuck down the road....but the surgeon was adamant that it's medical and shouldn't wait. Just wondering if this happened to anyone else?  I'm feeling a little down because of the amount of pain and also my weight loss has slowed down.  ????

Airplanes

Mar 07, 2016

As some of you know, I am a bit obsessed with airplanes and my first post here was about me crying on one due to the usual size issues, mean people, and humiliation. I received so much support here, for which I am so grateful. Anyway, I saw this article and thought the author captured the airplane feelings so well. I know many of you are now the skinny ones in the seats; I hope to be there soon and to be kind to everyone I encounter. 

Blessings,

Lisa
