I figured i would post this next week after a few of my doctors, but i will post it now as it is an occurring trend. I had a therapist who i told about this and she more or less understood my decision to get banded hopefully in september 2011, but she told me how she felt about it. Which i was completely fine with but then she took maternity leave and i got this new lady. If i put this new therapist, with my normal doctor, with my physical therapist together you get the same reaction.... basically a professional roll of the eyes. It is a held back roll of the eyes but you can tell they don't agree. Which is completely fine with me, i just need my doctor to go along with me which she does. It just bothers me i think because they are all size 0 twigs. As my mom said today "don't you wish you could just put your fat suit on them for 24 hours." Yes, that would be nice.
Do/Did any of you have this problem with professionals? I am sure there is plenty of family and friend flack but professionals?
One thing that did come up last friday was i told my friend, about my decision. He has Chrohn's Disease, and i asked him does he ever miss nuts and seeds. He said sometimes, but that he doesn't really miss them. He asked me why and i told him what i was thinking and we discussed it and he was totally understanding. Before Chrohn's he said that he used to be a fat kid, and now he is skinny. I really appreciated him having my back though. Our friendship has really grown this year, he is a really great friend. A few of my friends i am not so sure of how they will react. One of my besties in particular is a fitness nut, and i have a feeling that she won't back me, but i may be surprised.
My grandma who had gastric bypass is all for this, and i am sure will happily be standing right beside my bed. My mom has my back, as does my husband.
So i turn this around to you. I have your backs to. If you need me shoot me an email i am here =)
