    Welcome to group and congratulations on turning 50 but I have to say you do not look your age at all and welcome to the world of getting your life back!! This is all about you so never mind those that try discourage you from doing this and when it not about them its about you. I have tried quite a few of the different kind of Protein Shakes from pre made to powder and I have to say that I have two weeks left on my 1 month liquid diet which I had choose to go with Isopure dutch chocolate powder that I mix with unsweetened almond milk its zero carb zero sugar ordered from Amazon I think its the best . Isopure leaves no after taste or a chalk taste in your mouth so I found it to be the best. Id also like to say that you can order it on line from either Walmart or amazon ( which I found cheapest to be on amazon) you can order different flavors and in different size serving amounts(again I went with the 7lbs which is 107 servings , because it would get me through the whole month) This was also helpful Isopure also offers a unflavored protien powder that you can mix into any other liquid such as Soups or drink and its unflavored so you don't taste it . I will definitely be reordering especially the unflavored for after surgery as a way to get my Protein in. Good luck on your journey!!

    Mine was pretty straight forward, we went over my EGD results and changed the plan for surgery. I originally wanted the sleeve because the whole re-routing of intestine thing but due to having some damage from acid reflux he said the bypass was better in my case. I had to sign a consent from him in his office that outlined all the risks and possible side effects. We also went through everything I'd need at home after the surgery and when I'd follow up with both him and the nutritionist.

    I also had to do a bunch of pre-op testing, I had to get a chest x-ray, an EKG, and a bunch of blood drawn. There were other things on the sheet I didn't have to do because they didn't pertain to me, such as a gallbladder ultrasound.

    We were all excited, then nervous as the day approached. I've had a few days of regret during the stall, but for the most part, I've enjoyed the journey and weight loss. I'm only one month out and already have some small victories, knees hurt less, both feet fit on the scale, and I can cross my legs when I sit. Oh, my jeans are giving a sigh of relief as I was putting way too much in that small space. I'm just enjoying the journey and look forward to finding the new me.

    Gotcha. Thanks for sharing! Is your primary care doc supportive of bariatric surgery? If yes... you have a higher chance of being approved. Hoping you get what you need to be healthier!

    Hi my name is Marie and I am new to group. I am currently 1week and four days into my 1 month preop liquid diet and the struggle is real. I don't feel hungry .I just want to eat some food. I am counting the days down until my September 16th surgery date. I am anxious excited nervous and scared somewhat, After talking with my sister today ( who has had the surgery years ago) she is the one I thought would be the most supportive. She has me thinking that I shouldn't be so excited about my preop appointment and my upcoming surgery. I am almost second guessing myself, more nervous about the process ..I do understand this is a major surgery and maybe that's what she thought I wasn't taking it seriously... looking for any advice or support ????
