So I had the gastric sleeve about two years ago and was afraid to have the bypass at that time. I am now two years out and had lost a total of 120#. I did gain back about 30lbs but still have a BMI of 31 and am "obese". I was just wondering if anyone h

Total 120# lost, obese my whole life. Just had a tummy tuck and breast done a few weeks ago. Everything has been great and I am so happy with my results but out of nowhere a few days ago I realized how incredibly sad I was for all those years I spent h

Ok so I have been obese my entire life since I was about 5-6 years old. In total since surgery I have lost 120lbs and I feel great! I look great and I have so much more energy. However, sometimes when I look at myself or look at my hands, legs, thighs

I work 12 hour night shifts and at first right after surgery I was fine and didn't have any problems but recently (now 2.5 months post op!) I am finding that I am so much more hungrier at work (partly because I know I am a lot more active) I have been

Ok I'm just over two weeks post op and really couldn't be happier with my choice to have surgery. During the day I do great! I'm able to follow the diet plan and even when I'm out in public and smell food that I normally would have eaten I can walk awa

Ok so I am only a few days post op and everything seems to be going great with the exception of last night and tonight I've been waking up with horrible nausea and extremely restless. I get up to walk around, use the restroom, and I tried sipping some

Ok so call me crazy but a few days ago I did a boudoir photo shoot pre-surgery. It is something I have always wanted to do but, always told myself "when i'm smaller, thinner, at my goal weight. When i'm more pretty, less curves, no blemishes" blah blah

Im staying at my parents pre-surgery since I live out of state (my surgery is monday!). Both my parents keep bringing home food, ice cream, candy and telling me I can have it. I keep telling them I am trying to loose weight but more importantly that I

How exciting for you. Congratulations! You are going to do great and just think of it as the first day of the rest of your healthy life!

10 more days! You must be nervous but you'll get through it. Just think about the moment you wake up and you crack open one eye and you think to yourself, 'oh thank goodness, im here!' Almost there! Cheers!

I am incredible excited and nervous about my surgery (Jan 18th!) and in the mean time I have been reading a few books and was wondering if others had any suggestions of ones they liked related to weightless, weight loss surgery, emotions or behaviors r

Ok so I finally got the approval from my insurance company and a date scheduled (Jan 18th!) for my gastric sleeve. I am just having some second thoughts on if I want to tell people beforehand. I told my best friend and was hoping for a more supportive
