  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
