  1. Feeling pretty good after surgery! Came home 29 hours after admittance for pre-op! Doing ok on sipping water, some how I keep swallowing air with it and end up burping. Not sure how that’s happening. And I hate that little breathing tube tool they give you because it hurts a little too much. But I am going to do it every waking hour, 10 times, for the next two weeks (instructions I was given).

      Congrats! And the burping thing lasts a few days - I found that when I started burping a lot, walking helped work that out pretty quickly.

      How are you feeling now? The burping is odd right, I felt the same. I was sooooo careful not to swallow air but alas I had the "burps" and a bit of frothing.

  2. Pre-admission testing tomorrow! Surgery 12/30! Getting so close!

  3. Day 11 liquid diet, I’ve only managed to drop 6.8 pounds on this thing. I have 4 days until surgery!

      You're getting close - and the pre-surgery phase for me wasn't about weight loss. It was about the mental prep & commitment. You are doing it!!

  4. Day 6 liquid diet today. 9 days until surgery! 293.8 right now. Same weight as yesterday but my time of the month has shown up!

  5. Day 4 of liquid diet starting today!

      👍 That's awesome! Congrats, stay motivated.

  6. I’m getting a little impatient waiting for my final consult with my doctor (December 1st). I know it’s right around the bend, really, but I’m ready already. If they called me tomorrow and told me to begin the pre-op diet I’d be like “Yes what is the protocol,” and BAM, started. But I’m just waiting...patiently.

  7. I’ve been up since 3:30, and I have to work a night market tonight... I’ll probably eat over my calories but just barely. It will be a long day. I won’t be home and back in bed until 10pm or later. I’m already exhausted.

  10. I have been struggling to find where I fit in in the body image and weight loss communities. At the same time I’ve been struggling with keeping track with my pre-surgery weight loss. I’m still down about 7 pounds. Working on getting that motivation back! 

  11. Does anybody have any good book recommendations to read pre-op? I’m like 6 months away, but I want to be as prepared as I possibly can for what’s ahead, and how to make the most of this new tool that the doctor will be giving me.
