    2 weeks before my sleeve and I'm pregnant. Birth control fail. I cannot believe my life right now. All that work and testing for nothing.

    I am 5’3 and I am 200 ugh!!! I am so excited and nervous to have the surgery. I think I am more nervous about the flight . Flying from the east coast to the west coast. I have been reading so many positive things about the Doctor, that I feel I have made the best choice. Oh yeah I am scheduled for January 4th. Where are you coming from?

    Hi SC Girl ... we are almost exactly the same I am 91 kgs which is 200lbs and I am 5’2”... I am 58 tho should have done this earlier. I am in New Zealand. My surgery is the 28th January so a way off. This is such a big decision so am also feeling very anxious but everyone say they wish they had it earlier and has been the best thing so let’s go for it!!

    That is awesome that you made the decision. How long will your flight be? New Zealand, Wow! That is such an amazing place. I have done so many diets. I Actually have not told anyone about my surgery. I just did not want to hear the backlash. My husband, my best friend and my children are the only one that know about it. I have searched the website for anything negative about the Doctor, and team that I chose to do the surgery, and I have not found one thing. So this gives me great hope, its still pretty scary, but I think it will be fine. I’m worried about my flight, mine will be nothing compared to yours. Good Luck to you!

    I actually live in NZ so no flight at all! I am lucky. I have told quite a few friends ... just felt I needed the support and I don’t think any will judge me... am doing it for my health which is going to be great. Good luck to you too, it’s going to be great, new year new us!

    xoxoMeli got a reaction from Amanda Purser in When do you usually get a surgery date?   
    I got my surgery date on my very 1st appointment with the surgeon. Granted, I have to complete all of the pre-op testing and be cleared for surgery so there is always a possibility it can change.

    My stomach suddenly decided to reject solid food. They did several tests and could find no actual problem (such as stricture). Everything I ate would cause severe cramping and vomiting. My pcp that works with the bariatric program lovingly refers to me as a difficult case

    My nutritionist has us skip purée and go to soft food. Idk if it was a good idea though. At 6 months I was back on the soft food and liquid diet for almost a month. Now at almost 8 months I’m being put back on it again. I can’t help but wonder if it would have been better to do the purée stage

    You will be sore, so you can’t exactly jump to solid food if that’s what you’re thinking , but you can do things like yogurt, pintos and cheese from Taco Bell, I purées a peach slice and it was heavenly. You’ll only be able to eat a few bites anyway at that point so it won’t be too bad.

    I ate soooooo much yogurt during the purée stage because I simply couldn’t handle puréed meat. Instead I did yogurt and pudding and applesauce and all things puréed that were allowed except meats. I basically was getting all my Protein from high protein yogurt (like Greek or Skyr) and Protein Shakes.

    I am not exactly a picky eater, except when it comes to texture and how food looks. There is no way EVER I could puree meat or chicken salad or whatever and eat it. I got through the pureed stage by having things that are already pureed, like applesauce and pudding. I never pureed any food. I wouldn't have been able to stomach it.
