    Surgery date 2/4

    I just had mine on feb 4th as well. I am having a hard time eating and I feel so weak and tired. It’s nice being on the all liquid portion because I am liking strained cream of mushroom soup. I am waiting for day 7 to have sugar free pudding cause it feels like it will be too thick for my tiny stomach. I feel so thirsty and all I want to do is pound back an entire bottle of water. I was so thirsty yesterday that I paid 8 dollars for a bottle of water .. insane, right? I also find drinking water makes me burp where cream of mushroom soup seems easier to get down. I think it’s because I keep trying to drink more than my stomach will allow. Oddly, I’m sipping so it’s not like I’m guzzling. I can’t wait until puréed stage! I haven’t weighed myself since August so I don’t know how I’m doing in that regard. I had my surgeon write it down and seal it in an envelope so I can open March 1st. Maybe do that? It might help :). We can do this .. we really don’t have a choice which is awesome! I can’t wait to be skinny!!!! Advice .. or ideas more suiting as I’m in the exact same spot as you .. I might try warming my protein shake to make it a hot chocolate . I have no idea if it will work :). I’m so glad the surgery is done and now it’s all uphill :)

    Has anyone kept their surgery a secret?

    I’ve only told my husband and 1 close fried who has joined me on ALL of my weightloss attempts .. we did Bernstein, keto and weight watchers together .. we we both successful (short term obviously) as we are both heavier than ever before and out of pocket thousands of dollars. In my opinion, it’s nobody’s business. I know how judgy people can be. I figure, I got my husbands support of my trusted friend and everyone on this forum that I can talk to. Everyone else can just be proud of me! All they need to know is I will have lost the weight by eating less and healthier :). My date hasn’t come yet. I’m scheduled for the sleeve on feb 4 :)

    February Surgery ?

    Yay for all of us! I’m scheduled for February 4th to have the sleeve done and will be having it done in Puerto Vallarta .. I’m excited as well but am terrified all at once! I have a very supportive husband who has seen my weight fluctuate so much in the past 6 years and has never made me feel unattractive or undesirable. With that said, I want to do this for him as much as it is for myself. I want to feel attractive so I can make him happier! I also have really bad family genes.. my mom died 10 years ago at 60 of heart disease and I don’t want to suffer the same horrible fate she did so I decided to take control and do all I can to live a long and healthy life. Cheers to everyone who has decided to take control as well! We all should be so happy that this option is available:)
