Congratulations! I don't share your surgery date but I was just banded on December 13th, so I'm just starting this journey too. I hope everything goes smoothly for you.

Rachel...congrats on finally getting your surgery date and also for taking the steps to get banded and onto a healthier YOU. Don't start this journey doubting success. Tell yourself you can do this. Follow the rules your doc has set up for you. Good luck!

Yay! Me too me too! We share a surgery date. I'm so nervous and excited all at the same time! Mostly nervous about the pre-op diet. Good lord 10 days of liquid only?! I have spreadsheet created to help me remember what I "have" to "eat" and what I can eat/drink at any time. I plan to put a rubber band around my wrist and any time I feel like cheating I'll snap the rubberband. OUCH! But it helps me break from the almost obsessive need to eat. January 25. Here we come!

Me too! January 25th. I'm terrified. A little for the surgery but mostly that I will not be successful after taking such extreme measures. It would be great to keep in touch with other Jan 25th bandsters. I start my pre-op diet January 12th.

Congratulations! My date is set for Feb 3rd and I start the liquid diet on Jan 20. Good luck to all. I've been looking into it for about 5 - 6 years. I think I'm finally coming to grips with thinking I'm a failure because I haven't been able to keep it off on my own. I just need to get on with it. - Julia

        Welcome!

        I've been a member since 2008, but just now decided to go ahead with surgery. Barely getting started 😁

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
