  1. Hi Abbey, would love to see your thoughts on FatGirlFedUp’s journey. I was inspired by her a lot, but I don’t think she’s had any input from a dietician? Wondering what your thoughts are on her weight loss journey and overall methods. Thanks! Am a big fan! ✨

  2. Hi Abbey! I’m a teenage girl and recently just started to recover from disordered eating. I’ve been on a vegetarian keto diet for the past month, but I was wondering what you think may be the best way to eat for me, to help me lose weight and maintain my weight, but also stay healthy, if you see this please respond!

  3. Wouldn’t liposuction be a better for weight loss since it just takes out all the fat without harming your organs?

  4. If you’re so committed to people not losing weight, how about you gain 400 pounds then talk the same talk.

    It’s seems so condenscending to overweight people I’d imagine hearing all these petite people talk about how they’re (overweight people) are fine and don’t need to lose weight.

    How about you try carrying hundreds of pounds of excess weight. Weight is more than beauty or self esteem it also directly impacts one’s health and quality of life.

  5. I had the sleeve 10 years ago, got to my surgeons goal of getting to 135lbs for my 5’4” frame and have kept it off for 10 years. It’s not perfect and it’s not a permanent fix. You have to stay on track and take your vitamins for life. Totally worth it for me because it changed my life and made me so knowledgeable of my own nutrition. I have experienced dumping for only very particular foods like rice, potatoes and ice cream. All of which are no longer a problem 10 years later. The biggest negative issue I’ve experienced is body dismorphia disorder. I look in the mirror and see my same bigger body even though it’s smaller. I went from a size 22 to a 4. Also, I have the constant feeling of NEEDING to workout for fear of loosing my results. On the bright side, I discovered a sport I love: triathlon. Weight loss surgery is not for everyone, but for some the negative issues are far outweighed by the positive. But never for one second think it’s a quick fix. It is a LIFE LONG goal that you will have to work for.
