Hi guys!!!

 

I have a couple things to talk about...

 

1. My surgery is 16 days away!! (Jan 15) I'm so excited!! I can't wait!!! :)

2. I don't have to do a liquid diet... My doctor doesn't require it. I came up with a decision that I'm doing it anyways. I feel like with liquids in your bodily a couple days to a week before is safer.

3. Only a few people in my family know about my surgery... I need more support.. So please add me as a friend.. I want to hear all about your journeys! I need more support from everyone.

 

:) happy happy happy!!

Good luck! I'm supposed to get sleeved about the same time as you. Can't figure out how to add you to my friends list. If you know how, add me to yours.

You are probably wise to do the liquids. My surgeon is not very strict either. He did say it will make things easier because rapid weight gain comes from your stomach and makes visibility better. So I'm with you, going to do it. After reading all these horror stories, I figure do everything possible.

It's great that you are excited. After joining this site and reading all the things that went wrong, I have been thinking about canceling surgery. One lady sent me a great support letter so I printed it off and look at it when I start to freak out.

Like you I'm not telling anyone about the surgery.

I also didn't tell anyone but my grown kids, my husband and my best friend. I didn't need anyone telling me that I shouldn't do the surgery when I had already tried every diet under the sun and failed. My health was simply going down hill, so it was pretty much my last option. I had my surgery on December 5 and I haven't had any problems. I did what my doctor said and I have not rushed things. After hearing some of the terrible stories about leaks and eating too much and being sick, no way. I ate about a 1/2 of a scramble egg this morning being careful to go slow and chew, chew, chew. I eat potato soup, beans mashed a little with mozzarella cheese melted on top. Just don't eat very much, a couple of table spoons. I have lost 25lbs and I am glad I made the decision to be a healthier me. Good luck the both of you with your surgeries and keep us posted. :)

Yeah, I'm not telling anyone basically because all the people I know .. are already skinny and had already said in the past to me ... "Weight loss surgery is the easy way out" so I don't want to hear any other type of those comments.

I did not tell a lot of people but my 3 older children, my Dh, my 3 friends and, a cousin who has G. Bypass surgery. Didn't want anyone trying to talk me down or off. Lol I did not tell work folks either. Waiting for my coordinator to submit to the insurance then a date. Then will I tell my boss. Probably that I'm just having surgery.

Good luck on your surgery!

Good luck girlfriend! You have a positive attitude which is half the battle!! I was sleeved on July 2nd and have lost 129 lbs to date. I told EVERYBODY and I'm proud of it. There is one person in my family who didn't support my choice, but that's her problem. My friends have been super supportive. Just remember...it's not an easy fix, you still have to work at it. Now that I'm almost 6 months out, there are a lot more foods that I can eat that I couldn't at first, it's come to the point where I have to make the right choices. My biggest advice to you after the surgery is GET YOUR PROTEIN. I can't stress that enough. Protein, protein, protein. I still have a Carnation milk chocolate no sugar added protein shake with 1% milk every morning. Oh yah, take lots of before and after pictures too!
