    Need to stop weighing myself everyday!!!!

    I am so frustrated! I know that I shouldn't weigh myself everyday but I do! :thumbup: Then i get discouraged when my weight fluctuates (which I know is normal) I actually asked my husband to hide the scale today, So I dont get this feeling. I need to tell myself the weight will not come off overnight. BUT I WISH IT WOULD! I have 32 lbs to loose before they will do my band. Sorry guys...had to vent. :confused:

    Will I be able to enjoy yummy food again?

    Good morning! I have different questions that enter my mind every day. My question for today is... Will I be able to enjoy yummy food after the surgery? I know I need to be able to be in control, but wonder if I will be able to enjoy little things here and there...

    New here and very worried....

    I know how you feel. I am in the pre-op stage. I have days that I am so ready for it and also days that I really dont want to do it because I am afraid. It is such a personal decision, one that only YOU can make. Good luck either way you choose!

    So far so good...

    Thank you Boo! I need to remember that on certain days... Can't wait to just do it!

    A little something on my mind...

    I am sitting in my office and I started thinking about a blog I read earlier today. And now it's got me wondering something. When you get the stomach flu...does the Lap Band make you feel even worse? What happens if you can't physically drive to the hospital to get some fluid taken out of your band? Little things pop in my head and I start to worry, so I thought I'd ask the pro's!

    So far so good...

    I've heard that some doctors want their patients to do a liquid diet right before surgery. I was concerned about that and asked them yesterday and they said that they do it a little differently at Kaiser So Sanf Francisco, so I am eating healthy and acting as if I have the band already. I bet that was hard to do a all liquid diet! Good job! And thank you for the comment. I do have a question for you...would you do it all over again if you had the choice?

    Band Slippage...It is a BIG deal!

    I couldn't agree more. God Bless you for going thru all of that! Obviously the person who said that is not educated enough to know that IT IS A BIG FREAKIN DEAL! Glad you are doing better! You are an inspiration to us all! Malasis

    Hello All, Well today is day three on my Pre-op diet...and I have already lost 2.5 lbs! I am so happy! I really wanted to just give up yeterday...I was not prepared for dinner so it made things a little harder...part of my just wanted to go thru the drive thru...but I didnt...instead I went to the grocery store and bought stuff to make a yummy, yet healthy salad :smile:. I am proud of myself for not giving in. I have an appointment with the nutritionist tomorrow morning at 10am...can't wait. I CAN DO THIS!
