    I have been doing well and have gotten under the two's but have begun to slow down. This is where I can now admit that the exercise portion of this journey has to now come into play. I have begun in just this week so that I can keep my momentum going and have been quite happy as to what I have been able to accomplish. A few months ago you couldn't pay me to do anything that included bending, running, walking or breathing . I have a stationary bike at home and have been able to ride without passing out, I have incorporated some weight lifting and will continue to incorporate some other fitness activities.
    Continue the journey all.

    Jb1176 I hope you feel better, and the best thing would be is to rest! Maybe you could try something else for exercise? Maybe yoga?
    7 pounds per month sounds pretty good!

    Surgery Date is April 29th. FINALLY - its been a LONG time coming Day three of the pre-op diet, and while my surgeon doesnt require weight loss prior, its always good to shrink the liver and get used to the new normal. Looking forward to watching all of us April 2015 sleevers meet our goals!

    Today is 1 week since my surgery, not a lot of energy yet, but the only pain is from my staples and they come out on Tuesday!! Can't wait to go swimming.
    I weighed myself this morning and have lost 25.5 pounds since starting the pre-op liquid diet!!!
    I'm really happy the surgery is behind me and can't wait to lose more!!
    Good luck to those whose time is close, the pain doesn't last forever, you CAN do it!!!!

    Scheduled for Tuesday. Still on pre-op liquids and continuing to go to the gym. I'm trying to get everything done and in order...feels like I'm nesting. Only baby I'm getting this time is a baby tummy. ????

    Surgery in the morning. I did my Clear Liquids today, cleaned the house & wrote a 5000 word research paper for school. I am too tired to be nervous.
    See you all on the other side!

    Home today. Surgery was Monday. Day two of Clear Liquids. Walked evening of surgery three rounds around ward. Tuesday walked 30 rounds in three stages of ten rounds. Wednesday, release day, walked a mile in neighborhood. Gas pains are pretty severe and burping a lot. Walking definitely is the key to recovery. Haven't been able to get down more than a few ounces of clear broth. One more day of clear liquids and then 11 days of puréed food. First check with surgeon May 6.
    This is workable! Water retention is a problem. Came home 8 lbs heavier than when I went into the hospital.

    Jessica I'm so sorry that you had a rough go at it please keep us posted and let us know how your recovery is doing.
    I had my surgery on the 10th and my first 24 hours I had a lot of pain I'm not going to lie at the gas pain was horrible but it was short-lived for me. The second day was much easier and now I am at about 3 1/2 days and feeling really good just a little tender around that abdomen but back to my usual grocery shopping and cooking and cleaning routines. I feel really good. But I am struggling with head hunger and I'm already getting tired of just having a liquids would love to be able to have some thick Soup or some applesauce or some peas or mashed potatoes. But I know I just have to stay the course and things will get easier I'm glad I have this forum and all of the experience people on here to ask questions when I get stuck or I'm struggling with something. Any April's slevers feel free to add me as a friend and keep me posted on your progress and recovery

    Hi all I'm from NJ! My surgery is scheduled for May 12! I'm getting all the pre op work done like blood work ekg and endoscope( not looking forward to that) Met with nut last week and scheduled for a pre op education class on 4/14 I'm nervous anxious and scared! Not for the actual surgery but more for the new lifestyle after surgery.

    I began my journey on 2/20, and it looked like it would be a July surgery date to comply with a 3 month WL period. However they approved me (in 1 day) because I had been doing weight watchers and other things prior.
    I am all approved (as of 3/25) and they were booked out all of April. So I am ready to roll on 5/4! I have a pre op class that I need to do on 4/15 where they will give me all the post op info, prescriptions, and more pre op details. I do know that I just need to keep up on a lower carb/high Protein diet. I don't have to do liquids until the day before (So Saturday night will be my last meal before Monday's surgery).
    So I bumped up a couple months, and it's messed with me too.I am nervous, and I am keeping it quiet to my family. My sister had VSG done 9 weeks ago, and she's trying to talk me out of it. She doesn't think I can do it, and I won't tell them until I've finished the pre op class. My b-day is 4/24 so I am thinking dinner at the Melting Pot as a final indulgent meal.

    DITTO! I am May 4 too!
