    MMM.. Are you ready? I do not have to do liquids diets but I'm pushing the liquid Protein Shakes. I went to a Bariatric Protein tasting on Saturday and got so many samples. Some I never would have thought to buy without tasting first and they are good! Anything you think you will miss the most? I did measurements and before pictures already. I am hoping to be down 50by October.. What do you think?

    Tomorrow I have my first date in at least 10 years. I'm so excited!! Found him on Plenty of Fish (which I learned about on this site). We've texted, emailed and spoken on the phone so far, and tomorrow we'll meet at a restaurant or coffee shop.

    Lots of protein...lol my main Protein is called Met Rx. It's a huge barrel that I have been using for months. I got Peanut Butter. Ok the next choices are the ones I tried at Vitamin Shoppe: Isopure Zero Carb,40g 0 sugar. I love the coconut ; pure Protein shake 35gm protein, 0 sugar, 170 cal, I got the banana and plan on freezing it into ice cubes for a great refreshing snack. OMG it tasted amazing; Jay Robb 24 gm protein, 0 sugar, 110 cal; Synteax nectar had a lemon tea.. Wow.. It tasted great and I could sip that on the deck on a hot day..lol I also got a few whey protein shots. 45 gm protein.
    They also suggested a powered peanut butter.. Only 45 calories.. I will add it to some of the powder Proteins. Did you ladies know to make pudding with the powdered protein? It's a nice change from drinking your protein. Just add a little Water to a scoop of Protein Powder until the desired consistency. That is where I would add the Peanut Butter powder too.
    I hope this helps you a little bit.

    Hey Junies,
    Had my pre-op at the hospital today for surgery next Monday. I'm scheduled for 10:30 am. Officially began my 7-day liquid diet this morning, but had prepared myself last week by drinking liquids all day and only having dinner with no carbs. I am sooo glad I did this as I feel I am able to tolerate it better and didn't shock my body all of a sudden. No headache or hunger pains!!!
    Thursday morning I have my pre-op with the surgeon. I feel really good about my decision and less nervous after listening to today's pre-op at the hospital. They seem to really have all this down and have a great team of doctors and nurses!
    I have really enjoyed reading all your post and appreciate all your feedback to my questions.
    Hope all surgeries today went very well!!
    Take care everyone!!

    Glad that two people are going in together. Sorry about the dog passing away. He will meet you on the Rainbow Bridge when it's time!My babies are so much a part of me as well.
    I had my pre op today and it was almost cancelled. I gained weight!!, I cried, I promised to be active and eat better...so it's still on for next Monday June 9. In at 10 surgery at 1215. I have a soap to use starting Thursday and everyday until surgery.i should be home Wednesday and up and asking on surgery night!
    This is real, I get a second chance at life. Being skinny is a side effect. Being healthy is the main reason. Oh and to come off at least 5 pills daily. Wahooo!

    Marysminute! Lol that's true online or in person! There are lots of men just looking for sex, but there are also lots of men who are tired of dating and want to settle down. Typically, until a man is closer to 30, they are still in their "wild oats" stage. Also. If you let them know you are not opposed to sex altogether, just not open to sex until marriage or when in a loving committed relationship, they should relax a little. There are a lot of women who have either sexual abuse or self conscious issues with their bodies, which prevent them from ever enjoying sex. Since sex is really a big deal to men, they seem to try to weed out the ones who won't ever want sex. On the other hand, when it comes to men, let them chase you more than you chase them because your value will go up tremendously. If you make them wait for sex at least a good 90 days, they will have invested enough in the relationship that they will not want to give you up!

    Congrats to all the new people. I am less then 2 weeks now June 9 here. I go to monthly support groups and they told me no preop diet is required. I go June 2 for pre op the normal nut, NP, lab work, EKG, anesthesia... And what ever else I will need. I'm scared of not being able to drink Water as often as I want. I drink water all the time. I have been practicing no water with meals.. That s hard to do! Also, walking thru a grocery store.. Will I want everything I see? Or miss the foods I can't have? Any ideas? I'm having the sleeve by the way!

    You have come so far to jeopardize it now. Try meditation when you get thinking if food. Grab a Protein shake if you are able. I heard most people say they don't even think to eat. How much Protein are you drinking? Maybe you need more...I'm not here yet but just trying to help from what I have learned.

    Cher40rie, did you peek in my house window ? I too have many of your symptoms. I went to the seminar in February and my first appt the end of it. I have seen Marie and Kristin monthly since . Oh I'm so excited to meet someone near me. Have you gone to any of the monthly life mtgs? If you do, perhaps we can meet up. I am ready for this life change and I am doing it to live, getting skinny is just an added bonus. Did you have the psyche eval yet? And also, the dietician workshop? Basically, is all your homework that he gave you on the sheet complete? I went to school in Utica to St. E's.. Do you have family support after the procedure?i didn't tell to many people. Just my kids, mom, BF and a Few dear friends. Maybe
    We can be done the same day.
    Sorry for rambling...

    Patty, I met Simon once ..lol as a patient. I know him as a nurse. I got to see him in February. Graber wasn't going to be until April. I figured , I was that much closer. I see his office people every month. He said 2-3 days in the hospital. We have monthly, lifetime support mtg, given by patients. This last weeks one really helped me figure out if I wanted the sleeve vs the Roux NY. I'm scared as heck... But I want my life back .
