I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could assist you..
Although, I have not had.
Yet. I know that I will have that same feeling. I'm scared of my stomach reaching my knee's and having my body look like melting candle wax. But you know what it's more for my healh than anything. I can buy a girdle or body shaper. Only me and my spouse have to see under the clothes.
I agree with purpledaizy, I have no idea what Im gonna look like as half of me. Im worried about being cocky or self involved. Ive been seeing a therapist since December and will continue to after the.
To someone, because you are not alone and even this is a good support system..
You"ll get through this, you will learn to love yourself!.
Good luck to you.
A long time ago girls a really fat man told me that you've gotta like yourself. Even fat. FYI and really for the first time in 15 years I "love me and my shriveled deflated body. Just love it. Naked and clothes, just love it. And that is be I choose to live rather than curl up and die like fat ppl do..
Send me naked pics, I love all you far chicks! LOL..
I am only six weeks out and have already started thinkning about getting a second job to get myself back together. My fear is that no matter what I do I will never look normal again. I have had plastic.
In the past on my breasts and they don't look the same at all. I know firsthand the feeling of satisfaction you get once you don't have to worry about a certain part of your body anymore. But now I will have all these parts that I am not gonna like starting with my stomach. But I think instead of focusing on my body I need to focus on my soul. I thought my life would turn around once I got this and all it did was make me look different. I'm scared and I feel really down alot of the time, I don't know what to do I went to a pscychiatrst for all of 2009 but all she did was fill me with drugs, which I don't take anymore.
But I am feeling a little of the same thing as you are I am glad this site is hear. I don;t feel so alone...
Almost two years out and the head work is the hardest. I still migrate to the plus size section in the clothing. I still guage the booth size to sit in. I still feel frumpy, dumpy, and lumpy on any special day of the week..
I realize that feeling full is easy but feeling satisfied is always a struggle..
Like any addiction (food or other) it is the brain that drives our desires and triggers how we perceive our surroundings and internalizes experiences. I don't regret it for one minute. Just beacuase I have opportunities to live life again and enjoy my children and husband...
Becky most insurance companies will cover a panniculectomy (removal of the pannis). Its not a tummy tuck but it gets rid of all that excess skin. If you just happen to have an abdominal hernia at the same (like I did) and can coordinate with surgeons can usually get the upper skin removed too. I was very fortunate in that and insurance covered it all. As far as seeing a therapist thats not gonna keep you drugged need to find one that deals specifically with weight loss.
And all that comes with it. Goodluck...
