  1. I can't believe my day will finally be here tomorrow! I am scared, nervous and hoping I am doing the right thing. I am hoping it all works out fine of course. I so can't wait to be able to buy new clothes, new bathing suit, that will surely be the bonus! Its been tough not being able to eat with friends and family. I spent the weekend away at the beach & almost broke out in tears not being able to eat with everyone else. I will be packing my bag today, anyone have suggestions on anything special I can take with me?

    Pre-Op Diet Ideas?

    I am using the Unjury shakes that some on here have recommended and my nurtrionist gave me a sample packet. I really like them. I ordered vanilla and chocolate. They taste like milkshakes to me too. I stick a few ice cubes in mine and sprinkle some cinamon for an added zip! My pre op liquids are for 10 days thank god! I am on day 4 today..

    Pre-Diabetic?? Excuse Me....

    I am Diabetic. I think it might take a week or possibly 2 days to get your results back. It all depends on how quicky your medical center is. I am hoping to lose my diabetes after I lose my weight. We will see. I am sure I will always have to be careful. Good luck at your appt. Why don;t you just ask your surgeon is he will operate on you sooner. You never know til you ask!

    May Bandsters!

    Mrs. Popeye, I so love the idea of those heart shape bandages! Something little like that makes one feel so special at a time like this! So glad to hear your doing well! Kathym you have May 22 as a surgery date, same as me! We are going to be Lap Band sisters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Today is my 4th day of liquids, I am doing it! Not as hungry as I was on day 1~
  15. Hi all, I had my pre op appt. today, it all went great! I am ready, willing and able! Whats killing me is this liquid diet...ugh...I am hungry! I must admit, for me the first day was the toughest so far for me. I had a family reuniom to attend, there was food galore and I couldn't eat a thing! I remained strong! It was tough, I felt like crying on the way home in the car. My stomach now is growling, making all kinds of noises, its not happy being hungry.. I kept thinking my surgery was on Monday, its on Tues. ugh..... I need other hungry liquid people to give me a pep talk! I have lost 4 more lbs. but now I can't change my ticker again...
  16. Thank you grandma! Did you lose alot when you were on liquids? Looks like your losing great!
