This is a really great and honest video. Something that a lot of us think will happen when we lose weight or stop bad habits is that we will automatically have an amazing life but the truth is far different. Happiness requires a multi-pronged approach that consists of good health, excerise, finding your lifes passion and having good people around you.

I love this comment. Yes, yes, yes!! SOOO true!! We have to be happy with ourselves first. And thank you for the kind words.

As a 43 year old man who has lost 17 kg in the last six months, I can really relate to you being more picky now you weigh less. Women who I would have said yes to only last year I am now “you should have asked me a year ago”!

Emily, I will be having my surgery sometime late this year, or early next year. How did you mentally get around the constant questioning of "would this person like me as I was before my weight loss?"
Mike J (4 месяца назад)
Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. :)
Emily AM (4 месяца назад)
Mike J so much of dating has to do with physical attraction. I don’t think it’s a bad thing if you lose weight and someone who was not previously attracted to you becomes attracted to you. Less weight is a healthier look which is attractive. You just need to decide if that person has enough depth to pursue anything with.

Looking at my comment below and for some reason some of it is crossed out.. strange. I didn't say anything bad or off the wall...?? I did say WTF.. maybe that is why??? I am new to this.. sorry
Brandy Archer (9 месяцев назад)
I am dying laughing.. Literally --and it is only like 6 in the morning!!! I get it on those dating apps.. I also had a date want to water ski!! WTF???? I mean REALLY???-- this is so funny.. I had a guy ask me the same thing-- what do you think?? and then ask, "what do i do now???" I was like-- uh, really... He had no game.. so funny!! Him asking me, "what do i do now!!" bahahah... I also had that bad experience when I was young of a boy saying something negative to me that stuck all throughout school.. Some of our stuff is so similiar. How old are Dylan and Lily now? My son is 13 and my daughter is 16. Yes, listening to you talk.. I always think it's a "no" bc of my weight.. it will be fun to not blame it on the weight... then what ... if it's not the weight.... ?? It will b fun for it not to be about that! You deserve to be wined and dined... No chillin' and watching TV at home... You deserve the actual court of it all! I think that God will put our guy in front of us when it is time... It is all about His timing.. right now I am just focusing on me, my health and my kids..I feel like that is my focus right now.. Sounds like you are the same. I love that.. have a great day- XO
Emily AM (9 месяцев назад)
Brandy Archer awww I love your insight! That’s hilarious a guy wanted to take you skiing. Maybe like after we are together and I’m comfortable with you I’ll go skiing. Sheesh. And, yes! The right person will come along I have faith and am in no hurry. 😊

Emily AM (1 год назад)
Of course! I am in love with the Josie Maran Vibrancy foundation. It's around $40 from Sephora.

Elena Way (1 год назад)
also don't give up my mom was divorced with four kids and got married last year to a great man she's almost 50. they are very happy and the one thing I told my mom to do which she did was tell the guy off the bat what you expect out of him. If he takes you seriously he will stick around.
Emily AM (1 год назад)
Good advice you gave your mom! I completely agree. I am in a great place right now and dating just isn't on my mind, but you never know what the future holds.
Elena Way (1 год назад)
you're so beautiful
Emily AM (1 год назад)
Thank you so much, Elena. :)

Hello, thank you for sharing your experience. I am only days away from surgery now and I am struggling with fear and panic attacks (mostly at night). I havent heard of anyone struggle with this to see how they managed it. Did you feel the fear?
Alma V (1 год назад)
Carol Williams hope you are doing well!
Emily AM (1 год назад)
Hi Carol, I was somewhat anxious about having surgery but mostly excited. I was nervous the day of but I am a statistics girl and I knew statistically I would be fine and that helped ease my mind a lot. I am sorry that I just saw your comment. I hope your surgery went well!!
Erin Buck (1 год назад)
I have a question this is kind of like off the topic but how can I get my husband to except my surgery and be there for me do you have any suggestions sorry for the question kind of a toughie I just don't know what to do
Emily AM (1 год назад)
Erin, I would like to do a q & a video in the very near future. I am going to save your question for that so that I can properly answer you. Stay tuned! I totally get it!
Hannah Cox (1 год назад)
I'm 17 now and in 6-8th grade I had a bully who would call me bolder and I want to get the surgery now because I just want to be healthier and more fit I weight 390 to around 400 but before I weighted 432 :( but I lost a lot a now I'm back to my eating habits and stuff a little bit I still don't eat like I use to because I use to be a bottomless pit :) so I think this surgery will help me get on track and make me much happier.
Emily AM (1 год назад)
Hannah, you are so welcome!! I would like to do a q & a soon so if you don't mind I will save your questions for that video. Stay tuned!!!
Hannah Cox (1 год назад)
+Emily AM thank you so much I really want to do this I'm just so scared about the sugary and more about if I mess I'm just so scared that I'll mess up eating and eat something I'm not spose to and take a big gulp of something and I heard you can't drink juice like hiwian punch and apple juice and I drink that stuff like crazy lol. I do have some more qeustions lol I just want to know all I can. can you eat pasta and drink soda but I don't really drink soda that much just juice but on like every other week we eat pasta like hamburger helper which it's got meat in it butt . :( not enough probably ?
Emily AM (1 год назад)
Hi Hannah! I am glad you reached out. I am sorry you had to deal with people like that. Dealing with bullying can be one of the roughest things in life. I am really proud of you for wanting to get your health on track. Congratulations on your weight loss so far!!! That is a big deal! It shows that you are willing to put in the effort for your health which will really help you in your post op journey!

I am pre op and have been researching for a year. I just started watching your vlogs and to be honest it is hard for me to concentrate on what you are saying because of your Stunningly gorgeous face! lol I must have ADD! You are incredibly beautiful! That is honesty that comes from my heart. Be so Proud every day of how far you have come ❤️
Emily AM (1 год назад)
Thank you so much, Holly. You are sweet to say so! And this made me laugh. :) I try to remind myself of how far I have come but your encouragement definitely helps. I appreciate your feedback and wish you the very best in the start of this awesome journey!

this video is very jumpy 😕 I'm trying to watch it and it's jumping around. I don't know if it's my phone or not.
Emily AM (1 год назад)
Yay for new phones! Thanks for the great feedback! I watched a bunch of videos on this when I was first starting to think about dating too. It's nice to know others go through similar experiences. :) Dating terrified me too!
Sonia Wicks (1 год назад)
Emily AM ....my phone has been playing up watching you tube videos since last week. I was watching Fleur De Force and she was jumping all over..my new phone arrives tomorrow 😆😆 so excited. love watching your blogs I'm only 15 weeks post op and I love seeing the success stories and any hints on dating is so needed. my confidence has grown but still the idea of eating on a date terrifies me...☺☺
Emily AM (1 год назад)
I am not super happy with my editing in this video, honestly, Sonia. It's a little jumpy most likely because I edited out as many pauses as I possibly could so that it wasn't 25 minutes long! I talk too much, haha!
Candise Smith (1 год назад)

Oh My God! I remember the first day of 4th grade when one of my best friends said, Oh Sandy, don't tell me you got fat over summer vacation. My heart sank, and I still remember it like it was yesterday.

Cheryl Persons (1 год назад)
I agree! Don't settle, you have come too far. You're worth it. Take your time, and if it happens, it happens.
Emily AM (1 год назад)
Absolutely agree!!
Sheila Havens (1 год назад)
I'm sorta new to your channel. Congrats on all you've accomplished. I had surgery 3/16 and have lost about 55 pounds. I need to lose maybe 50 more. I will admit due to circumstances (caregiver to 94 year old gma) I don't get to workout as I should. I know I can do stuff here in the house and I intend to. My question is How long did it take you to reach goal wait and did you have some long periods of time when you didn't lose? Thanks so much. I'm enjoying watching.
Sheila Havens (1 год назад)
thank you!!
Emily AM (1 год назад)
Hi Sheila! Welcome to my channel. So I was highest weight 290 and I got down down to around 185 about a year and a half after surgery. I stayed at that weight then had a regain. I didn't really work out at all during that time. I have only been working out for a year now and I am 4.5 years post op. I lost more weight 3 years after surgery, so YES it can be done :). A lot of people say there is a golden time for weight loss right after surgery which is true, you wanna try to lose as much now as you can, but you can lose more later - it's possible. I hope that helps!! Remember you have to take care of you before you can take care of others.
