    Shoot chicka chicka start ta talking!

    I am excited for you and me (LOL)

    What are you looking forward to when you get to your goal weight?

    Haha yes ma'am! Oh my gosh I'm so excited for buying new clothes, feeling more active, feeling light, being less in pain. I've already started to see some awesome changes like my blood sugar and pressure have been amazing (main reasons I got the surgery) ohhhh and to finally get off all my meds will be awesome!

  2. So I had my gastric sleeve on October 18th and since been losing weight evenly. I was down to 209 and then my period started on the 5th and I jumped up about 5lbs. I wasn't really worried as I normally gain 5lbs around my period but yesterday was the last day of my period and I'm still up about 5/6 pounds. Any of you have similar stories? Should I be worried or should it go down in a bit? Any advice is appreciated! Also having my 2nd follow-up with my surgeon next Monday.

  3. I don't hate myself for it but there is that little voice in my head wondering if I made the right choice. But then again I feel like I did because I already have diabetes type 2, high blood pressure, etc. If I didn't do this I don't know if I would've been able to fix myself and instead be a mess in my 40s and 50s if not dead

    YAY Dena!!! I wish you best of luck on your surgery today! You won't regret it for a second!

    P.S.- I'm right down the road in Woodbridge so, if you ever needed any info/to talk, just let me know!


    Ohhhh that's so awesome! I'll message you. Great to see another Monmouth county person

  5. Hi everyone!

    Just started my pre op diet today. So far it hasn't been too bad but then again I was off work since I had to get my upper endoscopy procedure. I got a bunch of boxes of bariatric Soups, Gelatin, pudding, unflavored Protein collagen peptides, two different flavors for my Protein Shakes, Protein Drink mixes, etc. Now planning for my stock for clear liquids after the surgery. Any advice is appreciated! My surgery is next Friday the 18th... And ahhhh my birthday is tomorrow, so birthday creamy Tomato Soup for me!!!
