    I can't make a decision

    I have gone through everything you're describing and I totally get you. I began the process in 2012 at 341, im 5 6 1/2. I thought to my self all of your same thoughts. I cancelled the surgery a week prior and began working hard qith exercise and calorie counting. I DID GREAT! I lost 80 pounds, felt awesome. Oh so gradually the pounds returned plus 6 additional! Now with new blood pressure issues. So again I explored the procedure, worked with a few women I was lucky enough to follow their progress. Started the steps and I was approved right away. I still have reservations up until the day I went in for surgery. I think that is normal. As long as you know exactly what you're getting into and what it will take to succeed afterwards you are ready. I'm going into my third week post-op, and up until a few days ago I was having regrets, which is also expected just as those in my support group my surgeon and the other people who have had it done said may happen. Im now starting to feel normal, i am able to test more things. I'm unable to eat more than a couple teaspoons but surprisingly it is very satisfying now and gets better each day. Ive lost 22 pounds at my 2 week follow which includes the 2 wk preop liquid protein shakes (5 daily!) So far so good. I need to get moving and ill be more successful. Back to work Monday that should help. So bottom line is, in my opinion, you are perfectly normal to have questions and concerns. Good luck! Sent from my SM-N920V using BariatricPal mobile app
  2. In addition to premier and unjury protein shakes, Yogurt, beans, egg. I did try mashed up pork roast one day did ok. Any of the above only 1-2 teaspoons tops except yogurt, can do 1/2. Each teaspoon takes about 3 or 4 nibbles to finish. My appt is monday too good luck! Sent from my SM-N920V using BariatricPal mobile app
