    May banders!

    Yeah I called the dr and they said that feeling was normal and to not push myself too soon on the solid food front. I'm kind of stubborn sometimes and I'm not advising it by any means. We're here to learn from others successes and mistakes right? Well big mistake. Every day gets a little easier and I have to keep reminding myself to give myself time to adjust and be patient. I hope to lose another 98lbs but would be happy with 60lbs at this point. I have many short term goals to meet before reaching my utlimate goal. One lb at a time.

    Katy bandsters??

    So far it's been good, the first few days I was really sore, which is too be expected, but I was back at work the following Tuesday. i did have to take lots of breaks because sitting too long started to hurt and the gas build up was still pretty bad. I'm not hungry at all but I do find my body craving Protein so I have to be sure and get my shakes in and yesterday gave in and had some chicken breast at lunch and paid for it dearly. I was in a lot of pain and think it was just too soon. Thought I could handle it since I ate really slow and chewed very well. But I think I'm still healing and please learn from my mistake. Take your time and listen to you body. It's weird to go throughout the day and not constantly think about food and what I'm going to eat next. Good luck on your journey, this site is great.
  5. I just finished up my surgery and I'm sitting in the hospital room trying to eat my "diet" 2 ounces of water 2 ounces of Jell-O 2 ounces of broth and 1 ounce of apple juice and I can barely get through that I have no desire to eat anything. I'm very sore and my throat hurts from the tube but other than that I'm walking fine used the restroom and should be going home soon.

    tomorrows the day!!!!

    I also have surgery tomorrow reporting to the hospital at 6:30 AM. I'm so nervous and scared to death I can't believe this is my last day and tomorrow's the first day of the rest of my life. I have so many expectations and I'm just so afraid of being disappointed with the results or my decision, I see so many mixed stories here on the forum that I just don't know how my body is going to react. Good luck to everyone and I just can't wait to be in post op mode.
  7. I'm sitting in the room waiting for the doctor to come in, I'm nervous I just want everything to go well and not interrupt my surgery date of May 24th. Good news was I weighed in today and I'm down 5 pounds just from starting my pre-op diet Friday. Getting anxious and excited. CAN'T WAIT. I'll let you know how my pre-op appointment goes.
  8. Mandi, thank you for your reply it made me cry to read your post because I can relate so well and you're so right. I am very happy that I'm getting this done and I know I shouldn't be embarrassed, and I hope that overtime I can share with more people. I have told my kids and my mom and about four close friends and they all supported me and I was surprised by their response. Especially my mom only because she tends to worry when anything to do with surgery is brought up. But she was very supportive and I know will always be there for me regardless. My list is endless of the things that I can't wait to do once I get my first 40+ pounds off. I'm tired of living in the shell and missing out on life because I'm either too embarrassed to go, afraid that I'll weigh too much or just simply I have nothing to wear. I'm glad I found this forum and look forward to the continued support and reading positive feedback from everyone.
