  1. So my surgery was Wednesday, and the hospital I had it in is over 2 hours away. We get home yesterday and tonight my husband makes a huge meal of grilled steaks, baked potatoes with all the fixings.. (My very favorite meal). Am I wrong for feeling that this is completely insensitive on his part? I understand people have to eat but this has upset me terribly.

  2. My doc said ABSOLUTELY NO alcohol for 6 months after surgery. I understand that old habits die hard but for me.. With all the hard work and stress of getting to the point of surgery.. I don't understand why peeps would even dare to push the envelope. Thanks for sharing... The route we chose isn't an easy one.. Guess we will all have those challenges along the way!

  3. From what I'm reading on this forum.. A lot of peeps do the same thing.. Keep the faith... Check your measurements too... Where u might not notice loss in lbs.. U just might in inches. With the added protein.. It will assist in increased muscle mass.. Muscle weighs more than fat... Main thing is don't worry!

  4. Hi there.. My surgery is on the 12th. That's awesome that u lost so much preop! I've lost 10lbs. About your reservations regarding your surgery.. Ask yourself a few questions... How have you been on diets before? Do you gain back once you stop? With me.. I've never had a problem losing weight on diets.. It's the fact that I gain back when getting off them. The yoyo thing is bad. Keep in mind also that you can't stay on that preop diet for too much of an extended time as it's only meant to be on a couple of weeks.
