    I'm getting surgery on 2/18 at Tijuana Bariatrics (Dr's Garcia & Vazquez are there). My coworker used Garcia about 6 months ago & raved about them, and she's doing great! I've encountered others that have used them too, all positive reviews. Best of luck to you!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    Just got out of my Pre/Op and I'm in the clear, however my fear is not waking up also since I've never had a surgery in my life. The only peace I have is knowing that God loves me and he will see me through.

    Congratulations on hanging in there. I was just at my support group meeting last night & people were saying how hard this step can be so it's nice to hear you're making it through with ease. Best of wishes to you during surgery as well ????

    Have reached a BMI of 29, and moved into the Overweight category!
    I was sleeved in July also, and find I can eat anything since 3-4 months out. I understand what people mean about tool and choices, as if I wanted to I could eat chocolate on the hour, or packets of chips, ice creams etc, I can.
    My discipline wanes here and there. Have being going up and down recently so need to go back to basics. Am thankful I can no longer binge like I used to... my appetite hasn't come back that much yet, which is awesome.
    I don't come here often, but if you read this, let me know how you're going, what is easy, hard, anything
