    LDS members?

    Hello! I'm a fairly new convert & getting sleeved in Mexico in about 2 weeks. Just Looking to see if there's any faith-based support out there. Have a great day! Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
  3. On day 4 of my 10 day pre-op diet. I've stayed very disciplined & I'm hardly hungry . I'm down 6 lbs AND I'm on my period (which usually adds a good 5 lbs) so feeling extra magnificent with my progress!!!! Hope you're all doing well! Feb 18th can't come soon enough!

    Saturday Feb 18th sleevers?

    I doubt that will happen! I cheated on day 5 but have been on track every other day, lost 13 lbs so far! Where are you getting surgery? I'm going to Mexico.

    Guilt.

    I have a 10 day pre-op & 2 day liquid only instructions. I went to town my last day before pre-op!!! Hot dogs, chips & queso for lunch, chocolate chip cookies (freshly baked!) dipped in milk as a snack. Dinner was white rice & ribeye steak. Dessert was a pint of ice cream. That all sounds SOOOOOO gross now but I don't regret it. 'Twas a great last meal day! I cheated day 5 of pre-op. My kids (5&7) wanted to go to McDonalds. I impulsively got myself a meal for dinner. I emotionally felt terrible after, though my body felt fine. I cheated myself! But every other moment I have been fully disciplined. Not one snack outside of my 2 protein shakes & 4 oz protein w veggies for dinner. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Wow, you've got yourself under a lot of pressure. Any surgery is a hard thing to decide on. I'm sure you're choosing this path for the right reasons. Claim that healthy bright future, you deserve it! Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Pre-op diet - too much protein?

    Two scoops of GNC Amplified Wheybolic Extreme 60 (20 grams each) for breakfast and lunch, then 4 oz of chicken & 1 cup of veggies at night. I couldn't do it today though, was too full! Only did 1!scoop per meal. Sent from my iPad using the BariatricPal App

    And that's why I'm not telling a lot of people! My husband is the only family member that knows. Doesn't help that I'm the only overweight person in my family... Sent from my iPad using the BariatricPal App

    Pre-op going great!

    There could be so many reasons! Maybe you have a lower BMI (mine is 47) or just Doctor preference. My Dr lives in the US but the practice is in Mexico, maybe he's just extra cautious because we don't see him as long. Sent from my iPad using the BariatricPal App

    I'm required to do that for the last 2 days before surgery only. Isn't it crazy how there's so many variations? Sent from my iPad using the BariatricPal App

    That's sweet, thank you!!! I've tried juicing before, up to 3 weeks at a time, so this almost feels like cheating eating a meal everynight lol. Sent from my iPad using the BariatricPal App

    What were you scared of?

    I'm getting surgery in Tijuana in 10 days. I know it's not shady as I've done tons of research and a friend did the exact procedure with the same provider. My fear though is something going wrong while I'm far from home, and not having it covered later on by my US insurance. However after discussing with my primary Dr he said most surgeons don't want to "fix" another's because of how much work is involved, no matter where they are located. Kind of "damned if you do damned if you don't" so I'm taking my chances! Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Why no pre-op? Was it discussed at all? My surgeon has a high protein low sugar/fat diet. Helps shrink the liver and prepares your organs for surgery. Length of time depends on your BMI. It's a protein shake for breakfast, lunch and for snack (only if needed) and 3-4 oz of low protein with 1-2 cups of veggies/greens for dinner. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
