    Yeah, some people are raised to be vain, which is a shame. I hope she can work through her issues.

    i just don’t know what kind of world this would be if i didn’t have these food/eating issues….i can’t imagine being in your friends shoes anymore than they can imagine being in ours i guess.

    I am a subscriber to your videos and I have watched them all. Please don’t take this the wrong way, but I really did not like this video. When I watched it, I felt bad for you because you had friends that did not 100% support your decision. It also bothered me that they said it was not the easy way out for YOU, but that means that it is the easy way out for some people. How is cutting your stomach, making yourself sick, and becoming vitamin deficiant EASY for anyone?

  6. youwantgeek says:

    I don’t know either! It seems like it would be so much easier…but who’s to say we wouldn’t have other issues. I guess the important thing is that we’re dealing with them the best way we know how.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for watching 🙂

    Thank you for subscribing and I really do appreciate your comment. I agree that gastric bypass is certainly not the easy way out for anyone, and it’s clear to me that people who don’t concern themselves with these types of issues or have them really don’t understand. I think I made this video mostly for myself…to hear what they really thought. I posted it because I felt it had some value for those considering surgery or people who are post-op.

  10. youwantgeek says:

    I think it was most important to me that I was 100% committed to this surgery and maybe less important that I was 100% supported. And it’s hard for people to support something they don’t understand. Thank you sincerely for your comment.

    I think your friend was trying to say “surgically enforced diet”…lol

  12. nightart6 says:

    great video…reminds me of my friends a lot. my friends are 50/50 when it comes to it. they are just worried more because i’m pre surgery. i would love to make a video like this down the road! 🙂

    I am so sorry to have to say all that WE LOVE AND SUPPORT YOUR JOURNEY! 1000% and we would have even if we didnt have the surgery. Being overweight gives you a sense of HUMILITY…”unassuming nature” about the world. The one comment about choosing life at all cost was sincere! “CHIN HIGH” xoxo

    wow, I am impressed, both of your friends had awesome answers to your first question. I hate the title “easy way out” I would love to know who said that first. Thanks for sharing this!

  15. LiveTrue21 says:

    Great Video..you are very lucky to have your best friends support you..and be there for you..best wishes always

  16. youwantgeek says:

    lol, totally.

  17. youwantgeek says:

    Thanks! Yeah, most people in my life were about 50/50 on surgery. I’d totally love to see a video like this from you down the road. Which is REALLY soon!

  18. youwantgeek says:

    You rock Abbie. Thanks SO MUCH for your support and you’re right…I haven’t met an overweight person who wasn’t humble. Chosing life is the only choice! See you soon 🙂

  19. youwantgeek says:

    Thanks Cora. Hope you’re doing well, hope to see you soon?!

  20. youwantgeek says:

    Thanks for watching 🙂 I hate the “easy way out” phrase, too. I think I may have been the one to bring it up in this conversation…but I’m sure they’d thought of it before that.

  21. imaswtgrl says:

    No I didn’t mean in your interview, I meant in “general” People say it’s the easy way out. I’m losing 2-3 pounds a week, working out, and think about food 18 hours a day, trying to always plan ahead, how is that easy. Easy would be someone like your friend who has NEVER had to worry about weight. I was very impressed when she made that comment. She’s never been in our shoes, so she can not speak for US. I think you all did a great job on thsi video, honest and open.

  22. youwantgeek says:

    Oh! lol, yeah, I wonder that, too. Like who was the first one to think and say aloud that weight loss surgery was easy. I agree. Nothing about it is easy. It’s hard from the second I wake up to the moment I fall asleep. And I wouldn’t want someone who has never been overweight to speak for me…that’s just silly 🙂 Thanks for your comments, they’re much appreciated!

    I know these are your homegirls, but I definately suirmed while watching it. My bestfriend knowsme and trusts my decisions enough to say, clearly this isn’t the easy way out because I see you work hard in everything else you do. I hope these ladies continue to be around as your new life continues to unfold.

    I meant “squirmed”

    Thanks for adding this video. Your friends were honest…and I appreciated understanding how other people might feel about WLS.
