    Surgery tomorrow, anyone else?

    Post and update us when you can, we all ❤hearing happy stories. Praying you will do well!
  3. Yeah Okay, I prefer shocked silence to derisive laughter in the first place, don't you?
  4. So the scale is finally moving again after stalling for a whole month. Even though I was supportive and encouraging to others in the forum who were experiencing stalls, deep inside I was jealous of the ones who've lost 90 pounds in 6 months and I've only lost 35 pounds in 4 months and have been stalled for 30 freaking days. I was secretly discouraged. So I decided to try something different to shake things up. I went back to just drinking protein shakes and no food, 170 calories each x 4 shakes a day = 680 calories. Sure enough, the scale has finally started to move downward! I don't think I was doing anything wrong before. I was eating around 850 calories, getting exercise 4 days a week, drinking enough water and getting in 60 g of protein each day. I guess it was just a natural stall point. But so happy to finally see the scale moving. I've been within 3 pounds of entering Onederland for a whole month and finally can see that I might make it there in a few days.

    Outpatient sleeve

    One of my Texas friends did it that way, dismissed 5 pm on surgery day. Went back the next AM to the hospital's Ambulatory Surgery Department for her Leak Test. A lot younger (and probably fitter) than me. She was one of those who went shopping at the mall after delivering with her newborn in a sling on her chest. I asked " Good God, why?" She said " Well they were having a sale of Linens going on!" Just the difference in age, think she's maybe 26? Having babies, having surgery, they both pretty much Wiped Me Out for the duration.

    Low Energy Levels 1st week

    Hi, I had my surgery on Tuesday. I feel a lot like PamPita1. I have moderate nausea and my throat is still a little sore. I have very low energy but i also have not been drinking as much as i should. Should i be taking the chewable vitamins i have yet? Thanks for any advice! :)

    Liver Shrink Diet

    And I did the entire month of August 2018 because I desired the best outcome, I believe it was worth the sacrifice.

    It is getting real

    Congratulations on becoming a potential June Bug, may your surgery bring you all you desire.😝🌹
  9. Finally got to try the unjury unflavored. I tried making the high protein SF Jello, while barely tolerable I am struggling to get it down. My level of anxiety with this is getting worse.
  10. Mine didn't say anything either, guess I could have shaved anything I wanted as long as it wasn't my abdomen. And I couldn't use Hibiclenz so did alternate plan with Dial Gold Liquid. Pits and legs were smooth, I'm more traditional , lady bits stayed au natural, since I'm a natural Redhead not THAT THICK there in first place! That is, if anyone required my testimony on this subject.
  11. I was up within 2 hours of my surgery walking the halls! Now 1 month out still no issues!!

    Weight maintenance

    I know. It’s hard to wrap my head around this. Scared I’m going to mess up and gain too much.
  13. Don't mind people who say that you are taking the easy way out. Going under anesthesia and all the test and planning is not the easy way out. I am going to strut into work with no high blood pressure, no prediabetic like I was on the runway at a NYC fashion show.
  14. Stay in your lane, Orchids. 😉😉 Jokes that bomb on this forum are usually my job. 😆
  15. Yes indeedy. Too much MRSA and MSSA floating around in the hospital. They don't want to risk any open sores.

    (ms.sss) 6 Month Post-op Update

    I am definitely going to take your advice by journaling everything I eat. It seems to be the best form of accountability. My program suggested 5000mg biotin chewable for hairloss and nails.
  17. Wow! Look at you go girl!!! You're a rockstar!!! Go go gadget!
  18. Almost to 60 hours! Around 40 hours I started to feel weird but I took a walk and got some smart water and made it through. Salt has definitely been my buddy this fast.
  19. I wasn't told that but gtk. I suggest getting a wax anyway about two weeks before surgery. Treat yourself to the waxing and you won't have to worry about shaving for 6 weeks. The new hard was doesn't hurt at all.
  20. I'm also pre-op and have this question. I plan on taking a week or a week and a half of vacation, then go back to work. I have excellent disability and FMLA but honestly I don't want the questions and I don't plan to tell people I have weight loss surgery. The people judging me for taking the easy way out...arghhhh. Just going to say I am eating less and moving more, which is the truth.

    Surgery tomorrow, anyone else?

    Congratulations, and wishing you an easy and safe recovery!!!
  24. I was encouraged to eat real food as much as possible starting at 4 weeks and only use one protein supplement meal replacement each day if necessary

    Pre-Op Diet Adherence

    I was too afraid to not follow surgeon's instructions to the letter, so I stuck with my pre-op diet.
  26. I had to use the antibacterial soap wipe thing but they never said anything about not shaving.
