    Well, made it through day 1 of only clears, and it flew by! Just one more day! I still can’t believe it’s actually here! I just can’t believe I made it. I wish all of you the best of luck, especially KishaG and Bianca! We did it! I’m so ready for this amazing life changing experience!

    So, I had my psych evaluation 2 weeks. It went really well! I was nervous and scared I’d say something stupid that might prevent moving forward, but apparently I am a clinically sane person! Anyways, I got the phone call yesterday, “Hi how are you???? Are you ready? Pre-Op is the 15th and the surgery date is the 19th!” I literally sat on the other line in silence. I had no idea what to say, how to react, and I said “August??” The nurse started laughing and said yes!!

    I’m still struggling today and didn’t sleep well last night, 10 day, it’s only 10 days away!!! Obviously I know everyones story is different, I’m just blown away that I’ve been working on this for over a year, never thought I’d make it to hear someone telling my surgery date. I just hope this awkward numb feeling goes away. I know I should be beyond excited about having my date, guess that’s the procrastinator in me, wanting more time to plan.

    Please tell me I’m not the only one that has had this “awkward numb” feeling after you get your surgery date...

    I’m currently in Brazil so everything I got is pretty casual.

    Ok, where are my surgery twins? I thought I was going to be the only one who hadn't come and checked in lol. So surgery went great, I remember being really surprised around 3 or 4pm on Monday that I was ready to walk but they didn't want me to just yet. No air passed anywhere. Tuesday OMG came off the pain pump and promptly needed a nap. I did not know I had to ask for pain medicine after the pump was removed. I had weird dreams and woke up in agony, more walking no air passed. Something really odd happened Tuesday afternoon, I freaked out couldn't breath hyperventilating no idea why but that just added to the whole miserable awful day. The dietician did tell me that 2nd day is normally worse, and since they fixed my hernia that affected me as well. Came home Wed thankfully slept for like 12 hours that was amazing. Today is the first day I kind of feel like a human. Tues-Thurs I am not going to lie, I had a lot of why the hell did I do this to myself, what if I am going through all of this for nothing. Thankfully I am passed that now, looking at some before and after pics helped me with that.
    I can't believe I'm on the losing side. I am so ready

    Hey guys, sorry it's been way too long, but I'm checking in. Feeling great!!!! But..... just wait around for 10 minutes and I might bite off your head!!!!!! So, mood swings have been going for the last few days, I'm not a scientist or doctor but I pretty sure I know why they are happening. Other then the swings and sometimes lack of energy, it's been so much better than I originally thought it might be. I've been slowly been getting more active again, taking long walks and can't wait for my 1st post-op visit. I'm still on liquids(anything that goes through a strainer) and will be until my 1st visit. I'm guessing I will remain on liquids until mid-September, but who knows. I really feel like I'm recovering at a fast pace, but not going to take any chances. We all work so so hard to get to this point and I know the cost.
    I really hope everyone is doing great post-op and off to a great start! Can't wait to post my 1st before and after photos too!

    I think you just drank too much of their proverbial sugar free kool aid. Sleeve is the more modern procedure.

    Hope all my surgery twins came out of their surgery with flying colors! I did really well but they ended up doing the sleeve instead of RNY. I’m very disappointed but I’ll deal with it tomorrow because I’ve exhausted!!

    It’s been overall an amazing journey, finding out who I am again! I wouldn’t change anything about it, it’s made me mentally so much stronger, and help me see who I can really depend on and trust, also who I need to distance myself from! Thank you!

    Thanks Grady! The pre-op diet was easy, I’ve been following it pretty before I was even told to start. I knew if I got a head start mentally it would be “a piece of cake.” Probably have to come up with a new phrase post-op lol!

    Tomorrow is the big day & I feel ready & excited. Things have begun to change within me since I began this journey. Slowly I’ve started to regain some of my lost self esteem. Committing to the surgery alone ... making a commitment to myself has brought back in me a sense of self love which has been missing from my life for several years.
    I’m very reflective this morning because I know I’m embarking on a new life. One that I’m excited about . Best of luck to all my surgery twins! We’ve got this!!!!
