  1. First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

  2. I'm a week out from go-time! Today starts the all-liquids phase of my pre-op and about a month of being liquidy total. This afternoon is my last appointment with my surgeon before the main event. Looking forward to it!

  3. I'm experiencing a situation at work today. This skirt fit comfortably snug during my pre-op diet period (last time I wore it). Today? Well...

    Non-scale victory: My skirt is much looser.

    I just began Week 5 today (sleeved 10/13). I have not lost anything on the scale since about 10 days out. That doesn't exactly bother me. I'll take a smaller body any day of the week! The rest can catch up when it's time.

  4. I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:

    • 39pts off my Total Cholesterol including...
      • 29pts off LDL
      • 33pts off Triglycerides
    • 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range
    • A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range

    My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

      Good for you! 😀

      That is wonderful! Good for you. Thats what I'm going for also, get those numbers down and get my liver happy.

  5. Just deleted all of my food delivery/ordering apps and unsubscribed from several restaurant emails. I start my pre-op diet next week- unsure what that will look like until I meet with my dietician on Monday, but I want to be prepared for success. Let's go!

      That’s the 1st thing I did on my pre-op diet as well. Eliminate all temptations

      This is such a smart idea! Doing this right now!

  6. Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?

    Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      How are you feeling?

      Feeling okay. I have my last liquid day tomorrow and then it's on to purees. I did have an allergic reaction to dermabond and it's finally clearing up now.
