    Less than 24-Hours

    Hi ladies, I'm number 5 [emoji56]! I check in at 5:15 am and my surgery is at 7:15 am. I am in the bed but on my iPad in the forums. I'm anxious to say the least. It is 12:25 am but I just can't sleep. Anywho, prayers and blessings on your respective surgeries. I will check in once I am able. The new chapter in our lives awaits us.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm looking forward to having my surgery on Monday. My journey has been pretty smooth and uneventful since I started this process the end of February 2017. My insurance doesn't require supervised weight loss for non-Federal employees. I started my pre-op diet on Friday August 4th and have really enjoyed it. I'm required to drink a protein shake for breakfast and 2 snacks, while lunch and dinner is 3 oz of lean protein, a salad and veggies (non-starchy). I haven't been hungry or even cheated and I'm pretty proud of myself. I weighed myself after 8 days and I had released 13.6lbs. I will say there is one problem that I have with this diet, the constipation, Lord have mercy. I should have been warned because I am never constipated. I have added more fiberous veggies, taking Miralax and this weekend I will drink some magnesium citrate and some warm prune juice. I still have a few things to pickup and will go get a pedicure to get ready. Last minute cleaning, laundry, paying bills will keep my mind off of the clock. I'm sorry this was so long but just felt like sharing my experience. Looking forward to seeing the new me transform before my eyes. Best of luck to all of the August sleepers.

    Protein powder question

    I use Raw Organic Meal by garden for life. It has 20 gm of protein. They also have Raw Organic Protein which has 22 gm of protein. Check out their website. Sent from my SM-G935V using BariatricPal mobile app

  8. Congratulations on your success!!! Very inspiring especially since my weight is similar to yours when I go into surgery on the 21st. I do have a question for you, are you dealing with constipation eating all that protein? I'm on day 11 of my pre-op diet and I'm experiencing constipation and I'm a regular person normally. I apologize for asking such a private question. Sent from my SM-G935V using BariatricPal mobile app
  9. It took me 3.5 months from when I started until I was approved. My insurance no longer requires supervised weight loss. I'm on day 4 of my pre-op diet, surgery date is August 21st.

  18. Good morning all, I have been on this app for a couple of months but this is my first introductory post. My name is Natalie and I live in the Greensboro, NC area. I started this journey the end February and time is really flying by. My insurance doesn't require supervised weightloss which I think is really good. I've learned so much from this app, and the following books, Weight loss Surgery for Dummies & Ultimate Gastric Sleeve Success. I'm excited, nervous and anxious all at the same time. I'm looking forward to interacting and meeting others on this site. Sent from my SM-G935V using BariatricPal mobile app
  19. Thanks will do and good luck to you. My approval came pretty quickly it appears. They submitted on this past Monday and I received a call from the doctor's office Thursdays afternoon lent me know they had received a fax approval. They thought it would take longer because my insurance is not based in North Carolina but God had other plans. I know you will let us know once you receive your approval.

  22. What type of mask do you have? Sent from my SM-G935V using BariatricPal mobile app
  23. Good Morning I'm in the early stages of this process but I have been on my CPAP machine since June 2014. I have never experienced dry mouth and I use a full face mask and keep water in the humidifier. For those who are experiencing dry mouth do you have a humidifier as part of your machine and do you keep water in it? Sent from my SM-G935V using BariatricPal mobile app
