Any doubts, fears? I am excited but a little scared about the unknown - This site helps to answer questions but I guess at the end you just need to go do it...

You are In my prayers...

Yes! March 8. I'm finishing up what I have come to think of as my Farewell to food Tour, which was not a smart idea but I did it. So Monday I am to begin a better eating and exercise routine. I am nervous but excited about it all. Just got the date yesterday.

LB date March 12, 2010 and started pre-op diet on February 19th, 3 days on pre-op so far so good. I am actually full and not starving, which helps a lot.

I am not nervous about the surgery but fearful of the unknown in a way. I want to be very successful and not fail!!

There is a march bandsters community at Spring into March where others have already gathered for support if you are interested.

Hey March 2010 folks. You are almost there. Welcome. I'm in my 4th year and very grateful, loving Banded Living. I'm really into paying it forward. Learned a lot on my journey. I posted a link to a list of things to stock up on before surgery that people that the February group found very helpful. Here' s the link from my blog:

Preparing #001: Things to Stock Up on Before the Day of Gastric Banding Surgery

Please let me know if you find it useful.

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
