I was excited today to go to the medical dr which ive never seen but I needed a medical clearance as soon as I told him what I needed and what I wanted to do . he said well I don't agree with weight loss surgery they are very expensive they don't work. it might help at first but you will gain it back . the only way to lose weight is dieting no carbs lean meats veg and fruit anything in a can bag box you don't eat restaurants are a no .anything I said about a diet he said it dosent work .its a mind thing if you want to lose the weight then set your mind and your heart. you will lose. but the whole time im thinking and you only weigh about 120 pounds.i did say I bet you can eat anything you want and not gain. no he eats meat veg and fruit.so as he says you don't need to have your inside cut up. but if that's what you want to do then we can make another apt for the clearance. I just wanted out of there. people with no weight problems just don't get it!! this decision is hard enough I don't need to hear why do you want to cut yourself up and have the risks. so today sucked bad!
