Tonight was support group at the hospital where I had surgery. I did not know what to expect.....so, off I went thinking that there would be maybe 10-15 people there.....oh no....there were about 50 people!
It is run by the psychologist and nurse manager at JFK bariatric (my surgeon's office). It was really good.....there were people there from pre-surgery to 2 years post-op and most of the time was an open forum!
One girl (about 24) was talking about the negative comments some of her "friends" have made about her taking the easy way out....she said she no longer has them as friends. She was upset and said that she is 1000 miles away from home and going through this alone while at college....this really made me think about all of the support that I have had!
My best friends call everyday to check on me and my DH has been great! Everyone (although not many) at work has been so supportive and I have not heard one negative comment recently!
We all know how the gossip mill works so I am sure there has been some talk, but I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT!
Another lady was talking about how she was banded 10 months ago and has only lost a few pounds, but she can barely eat...blah, blah, blah.....a few minutes later she was saying how she eats with a tiny spoon and that eats lots of deserts....ok, maybe thats a part of the reason you have not lost....just a thought!!
Leaving for NC in 3 days!! Pretty excited and pretty ok with what I am eating! I think I am losing, but don't record my weight everyday. I am trying for once a week!
Good news is that someone at work noticed today! They did not know that I had surgery and they said..."you look like you are losing weight...are you ok??"
Since when did being fat = being ok?? Ha...they were trying to be nice so I forgive them!!
Oh, went to see Where The Wild Things Are and I was highly dissappointed! It was nothing like the book....although, I was not sure how you can turn a 7 sentence book into a 2 hour movie, but they tried (at least they think they did).
