    21 Months Post Op Today

    Sleeve 4 me! You look GORGEOUS!!!! I am sorry I have been a bit away from the boards (some personal/work matters) so I did not see this sooner. But I want to congratulate you on your accomplishment and for being such a bright shining light on this board. Many have already commented on your kindness and warmth and I want to second that!!! It is obvious from your pictures that your beauty comes from within. Your weight loss has simply revealed more of you! You are a rock star and I'm so happy and honored to know your story!!!!

    My Unexpected Nsv - It Rocked!

    Congratulations!!!! That's so awesome. Yo can tell you enjoyed every minute of it. Well deserved!!!!!!!
  9. Same as Meg above! My spouse has always been slender but in the last year, as I've lost nearly 100 pounds, he's dropped about 30. He has gotten so many compliments!!! I crack up because I've lost more than three times that... and IT SHOWS!!! LOL My parents, everyone tells him how great he looks. I think: "what am I, chopped liver?"!!! I just tease him and tell him he needs the compliments because I look soooo much younger than he!!! :-)

    I too had a combo of shakes and food for pre-op. I had a shake for breakfast, one for lunch, and about 4 oz of lean protein, NO FAT, and about a cup of steamed vegetables. I could also have buillion, SF jello, and SF popsicles. I did that for about 3 weeks. The three days prior to surgery were 100% liquids only. Hang tight Sammy! You will get through it. Take it one hour at a time if necesary. Just remember how much you've been through to get here. Go on walks, see a good movie, read a book.... one hour at a time. You're almost there. Will be thinking of you and sending lots of good vibes your way!!!
