don't think of it as hurtful and that he doesn't care as much- he cares but everyone has seen you the way that you are- he is excited about the new you- my husband looked at me and said, and I quote "don't take this the wrong way, but you have always been beautiful and I have always loved you but now I have a HOT wife who I love"

he just doesn't want you showing off your new hot body- he wants to keep that to himself. men are very territorial- for some reason they feel that a fatter version of the wife he knows and loves is less likely to attract the wolf whistles and cat call (although we know that's not true) while he knows the fitter version will attract attention from every angle. just remind him that he is the only one allowed to touch the new you everyone else just gets to fantasize ;)

Lap Band gal sent me over to show some love-  welcome to the WLS blogging community.
I've been banded since nov 2012 - so just about 8 months now. I've lost 65 pounds since my surgery and though I do struggle with the sagging skin I would prefer that over the health issues I had with that extra weight.
The time before surgery can be scary, but so helpful - do all your research and start weaning yourself off foods you know are your weaknesses- and soda, if your a soda junkie start now because its not an easy thing to stop doing.
well that's all for now- feel free to check me out at http://weaponoffatdestruction.blogspot.com/
