Bariatric Post ops who whine about how bad protein and vitamins taste generally don’t do much of what they are supposed to be do. If you believe that you signed up for the Spa Version of Bariatric Surgery, that was the Lap Band but then about two years ago, we found out it was also very hard. (even though it was so easily reversible… sarcasm ‘off’)

The rest of us are doing this without the whining. You need to do certain things no matter what it tastes like or how hard it is, IF you would like to keep your hair, lose ALL your weight and not just 45 pounds, and avoid IV iron infusions when you can barely stand. You can NOT undo your surgery, so PLEASE MOVE FORWARD without the fanfare.

Bariatric Surgery entails Removal and/or Rerouting of major organs and people have died from deficiencies.

Put on your Big Girl Panties and do what your bariatric team has told you to do – not the Facebook people who do it their way… oh but ‘must be doing something right as they have lost 65 pounds’. They don’t know what the hell they are talking about and you will be the one who suffers. The doctor told you what to do – pay attention to the BIG stuff they told you to do and NOT to do and you will be fine.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! You can do this and if you need help, we are here for you.
