    I'm Nov 27 also, Good vibes and prayers for everyone who has their surgery this week. As of today, I'm down 15 lbs, no cheating, but no judgment to anyone that does, the temptation is horrible, this is hell. Planning on a relaxing day, packing my bag, etc. Hope to get a good night sleep, got to be at the hospital at 6:30 am!! Have a great day everyone !!
  2. Glad you took your before pics too, and with pretty undies!! That is one of my goals, matching cute undies !! I will also update my pics and measurements monthly. Today is day 5 of the pre op, I was down 11 lbs this am !! 11, I had to look twice! I don't think this rate will continue, but it's a great start. It's hard, for sure, but we will persevere. Have a great day, everyone !

    The struggle is...REAL

    Well, it's the end of day 2..... And I made it. Everyone was right, this isn't easy, I'm really just focusing on today. Thinking about doing this for 12 more days is sometimes overwhelming. I've got headaches too, not too bad, but kinda annoying ones that never quite leave. Hopefully that will subside in the next day or two. Stay strong!

    So sorry you are struggling. I started my liquids today, so I'm sure that feeling is ahead of me. I just keep my eye on the prize, this is a short term solution to a much better life. We can do this !!

    Just reading about all the insurance drama is breaking my heart! I can't imagine having to jump through hoops like that. Canada may be freezing for 6 months out of the year, but I am grateful that I don't have to worry about insurance, and that my expenses are covered. Hugs to all of you still waiting for your final approval, and sending healing thoughts for everyone who had their surgery this week. There are so many of us that I'm having a hard time keep up with it all !!
  6. I hear you. My surgery is 3 weeks away, and I am starting to feel anxious. I am like you, have about 80 lbs to lose, but like so many others, I have tried everything else and can't lose more than 30 lbs. I am older, 51, but have type 2 Diabetes and cardiovascular disease (4 stents). My hope is that the diabetes will be gone, that is my main goal. Don't get me wrong, the weight loss is exciting, but I am very concerned about the diabetes. It is well controlled now, with medication only, but I know it will only get worse as I get older. The anxiety is normal, expected even. I wonder "am I going to have a lot of complications? will I ever eat 'normally' again (not like now, but normally), will I be the one that this doesn't work for?" Lots of things go through my head, but for me, this is the right decision. Improving my health concerns far outweighs the risks for me. Think long and hard about the reasons you initially wanted this. As Apple said, the decision is personal.
