Babe, I'm 52, with a bad back, bad hip, wonky knee and shit ankle. I'm here for you. 💞💞💞

If you EVERRR want to talk about the Bariatric surgery process / getting ready for it, hit me up. I also have a wealth of nutritional resources that aren't asshat-ery or ridiculous, especially in the lead-up to WLS.

It took me 10yrs to decide to make the first appt with a WLS surgeon, and then another 18 months until I had the surgery (VSG)... I took it *really* slowly. 😹

But, in those 18 months I started making small but significant changes in my eating, and in my *head*. I needed to adjust to the idea that I was really having the surgery, that I needed to. (FYI, at my recorded heaviest I was 420lbs, and I'm 5'5" on a good day.)

Oh, one more thing, I just started tracking my nutritional intake again; my energy has been crap and I think too little protein is a cause. If you're looking for a good app, may I suggest "Baritastic"...

I hope you get this! (I haven't responded to a comment before so no idea if the commenter will get it!) I know I'll come to you if I have any questions but right now I'm tapped out. I spent so much time in the last few years pumping up to get the surgery only to be told "No" because I'm crazy. I'm picking this up again in March after my schooling (I'm taking two classes right now) and when I have more bandwidth.
