    I was forthright about it. Don't know if he would have noticed otherwise.

    Welcome, Steve. I didn't have much success with the pre-op diet (kept "cheating" because I was so hungry and miserable), but I got through it eventually -- and so will you. Best of luck with your surgery!

    Post Op Coffee

    Hope you feel better soon. I'd be in a bad way if I couldn't drink coffee.

    100lbs down

    Terrific milestone! I'm so happy for you, @Spinoza.

    Activities for Exercise

    Right now I'm getting my exercise by dancing in front of the air conditioner. Crank up the Bob Seger and let 'er rip!
  6. So glad to hear you're feeling better!

    Food Before and After Photos

    That looks fabulous, and just right for these brutally hot days.

    Wish you knew before surgery…

    Absolutely. That feeling of not recognizing yourself and your life anymore can be hugely disorienting, and can lead to really unhealthy coping mechanisms if you don't address it.

    Aiming for Perfection

    Nope. One of the (admittedly few) benefits of being older is that I gave up my perfectionism years ago, and am much happier for it. You do what you can, blow off the rest, and learn to dust yourself off and climb back on the wagon when you fall.

    Surgery tomorrow!?

    Best of luck today!

    Wish you knew before surgery…

    I wish I hadn't stockpiled so many protein shakes/drinks based on my pre-op tastes. They're nasty now.

    Final Weigh-in

    I remember that feeling so clearly. (My surgery was delayed multiple times due to pandemic issues.) Hang in there.

    Check with your surgical team, of course. I found that a baby spoonful of applesauce helped pills go down.

    Caffeine - 7th day post op

    I'm with @Arabesque on this one. Even if caffeine is on your plan, why risk it the first time when you're out with friends? Could be absolutely fine or could be an embarrassingly bad idea -- much safer to find out in the privacy of your own home.
