    TheLdywMoxie got a reaction from LilLadyA in I’ve always wanted??!! What are yours?   
    I've always wanted :
    To go horseback riding
    To not worry about weight limits
    To eat in public without feeling like I'm being judged
    To shop in any store for clothes
    To fit comfortably in a booth

    TheLdywMoxie got a reaction from NovaLuna in So done with this stall   
    I honestly had no idea about this 3 week stall until I started reading peoples posts. Can I be among the many to say it is for the birds. I am on week 5 and my scale hasn't moved in a while. I had to put my scale in closet time out until we could be friends again. I'm just going to keep sticking to my diet and try and get in more exercise for a while. Alright I'm done just needed to get that off my chest.

    TheLdywMoxie reacted to Lmpg in July 2020 Surgery anyone?   
    Wow! U sound like an over achiever. Lol At least you'll have a nice nap pretty soon. I wish u much luck and success. I had mine 7/15. No problems and went home next day. It is hard but worth it. Today was very hard bc I'm weak, tired, depressed, and rebelling against protien shakes. But it's one day and I will continue to fight no matter how many days might go bad. I've lost 30 pounds since liquid diet. Can't be more glad than that! You are gonna do great. This is it! Let us know how it goes!

    TheLdywMoxie got a reaction from GreenTealael in Pain Medication   
    I had an appointment with the nutritionist yesterday who let me know that the hospital would no longer be prescribing pain medication after surgeries and that I am responsible for getting liquid Tylenol. I don't know how much pain I'll have after my surgery but Tylenol just doesn't seem like it would do much. I'm kind of worried but at the same time I'm just like I'll worry about it when I get there. Anyone else told they would not be prescribed pain medication after their surgery?

    It is almost July! Let the countdown begin! I go back to my hematologist tomorrow for a second round of Iron infusions. Never thought Id be excited to see my hemoglobin levels.
    I do not have a preop diet. However, I will begin one about 2 weeks before my surgery on 7/23.

    Good luck everyone.

    @INEEDABUDDY I’m exercising using Leslie Sansone DVD’s. They’re fun to do. I figure whatever I can do for myself beforehand would benefit me. I’m getting revision from sleeve to RNY July 17th.

    Non-scale victory. I’m at the doctor and the REGILAR sized blood pressure cuff was used on me with no question! In the rememberable past, I’ve only had the large or extra large (leg) cuff that would fit around my significant arms. Sometimes, if a larger cuff was not available, my pressure would be measured on my forearm or wrist.

    I am finally to the point where I am just waiting for the approval from my insurance. I have bcbstx and the request was just sent in yesterday so I'm sure I'm in for a little bit of a wait. I am beyond excited. I hope this is a smooth and quick process. If all goes well my surgery date will be July 27th. Wish me luck!

    Hello All
    I'm new here but been reading a lot of the advice people have to give and the support and it's great. I Decided to have wls last year but honestly my previous pcp has been recommending it for years I just didn't want to hear it. I just knew I could do it on my own without any surgery. I tried a few times and was successful maybe once but gained all my weight back plus a few pounds over the years. Now I'm over 30 and thinking to myself why did I wait so long to make this decision? I guess I just wasn't ready.
    I'm officially near the end of my pre op requirements and I can say this is a long process that I'm positive will be well worth the wait. That being said I am nervous and excited at the same time. Is that normal? Like I'm sure I can do this but what if I mess up? What if the surgeon messes up? What if I never get to my goal weight? What if I go below my goal weight and I don't know what to do with myself? What if I change as a person will it be for the better or worse? What will people think? Do I care what people think?
    I know I'm a little bit of a mess and I'm trying to get my head in the right space for this life change and I'm working on it. I also know I can't stand the wait but great things will come after.
    Thanks for listening

    You will never know the answers to all your "what ifs" until you walk through that door. All of us have had those questions, and the journey is different for each of us, but nearly every single person here is glad and grateful to have had surgery. I was literally dying in inches from my obesity and I have my life back now, and I couldn't be happier. Unfortunately, I waited until I was 63 to have surgery and lot of damage was already done, especially to my joints.

    Time to break out one of my fav quotes:
    “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” - Anais Nin
    I think all of your fears are common and expected. We got this.

    So you are worried about getting below your goal weight vs being overweight and unhealthy? I would worry about the zombie apacalyse seems more relavant. You can always do what i do - Snake on high calorie things like M and Ms or Get MRE powder to stop or slow down the weight loss. Nothing to worry about
    BETTER FOR SURE - being healthy makes you happy ...... being slim makes you feel good about your appearance ..... being fat and unhealthy makes you feel miserable
    WHO GIVES A f#$CK WHAT OTHERS THINK! This is your decision to get healthy! NO you do not care what anyone thinks .

    I am only a few months post-op and I continue to struggle with the 'what ifs.' I had a PCP who recommended the surgery for years, but I was scared of the risks. Now, I am in my mid-40's and just try to take it one day at a time. Everyone's journey is different. Just remember 'you got this' no matter what comes your way.
