    I do rent the runway unlimited, so instead of buying lots of things I will be able to rent new things in smaller sizes :) there are other companies that are similar. I have really liked it! Has helped me through my yo-yo dieting!!! However, that’s gonna be all over August 13th (gastric sleeve surgery date!)

    You know what is pissing me off? My phone ringing off the hook! The pharmacy calling to check on me, the nurse calling to check on me, my insurance company calling me (WTF ?!- I'm self pay!), my leave of absence company calling to confirm dates, the pharmacy calling again to thank me for my business. All of this in ONE day. Can a person not just recover in peace?!

    Woo Hoo Ladies - I'm nearly 12 hours away from my surgery. I have to check in at 5:30am so I'm going to go to bed as early as possible tonight. I did one final kickboxing workout this morning so hoping that will help put me to sleep later on.
    I've been wrapping up all sorts of errands to get things done before my surgery. Grocery shopping and meal planning for the family is done. Did a bunch of laundry and left some instructions for the hubby. I'm so grateful that I can afford someone to clean my house and they'll be coming while I'm in the hospital so I get to come to a completely clean and clutter free home.
    Ready to go!!!

    August 13th for me!!! Congrats everyone for getting their date :) what are you all doing to prepare for your surgery? I have been kind of eating whatever I want on vacation but I plan to get home and eat super nutrient dense food and lift weights to build muscle mass before surgery....

    I only have one incision. My dr calls it the "bikini cut". My dr. went in through my belly button. He sewed me together on the inside and then glued on the outside. The glue fell off yesterday I have slight soreness but that's it.

    You are not alone in the anxiety. I plan on telling people I’m doing keto once I start losing. Just take a second to remember why you’re doing this.

    I'm using this weekend to slowly slide into my pre-op diet. So I weighed this morning to get my official starting weight. My OCD side is loving the perfectness of this number.

    Had mine last August (2017) and I wish each of you a successful surgery and good health. August is a great time to get the surgery. By the time the holidays roll around you'll have figured out your food plans and you won't feel as if you're missing out.

    I have mine on August 13th! ahhh I am excited but a little nervous. What is everyone doing to prepare?
    I am thinking I will buy an assortment of like Protein Drinks and shakes and Protein water....I plan to eat really well and go ahead and get in the habit of going to the gym a few days a week. I have kind of been eating and drinking whatever I wanted the last couple weeks, but am ready to go ahead and move into this healthy lifestyle :)

    I paid 10,000 for the surgery itself, 4,000 for out patient testing which included everything since I’m getting it done in the us and they require so much (endoscopy, pulmonary, cardiac, psychology, stress test, sleep study, ect.) I also did labs. I got it all done at the surgeons practice. It was so convenient who was able to do it all in one place. I wanted to get it done quick and I have crappy insurance so I did not try to get it done for cheaper. My hospital stay and all the anesthesia for the surgery is 8,000.00. But since I’m paying out of pocket I was super picky and went with a surgeon who does the single incision gastric sleeve surgery so the surgery is virtually scarless. It’s expensive, but I am young and looking at this as an investment in myself and my future :)
