New! Surgery Scheduled May 17Th!



Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!!

My name is Lauren and I am currently a junior in college. My surgery is scheduled for May 17 and I just began my pre-op diet today. I have battled low self esteem and weight issues for as long as I can remember, and I am ready to make a change for the better in my life! I am so glad I found this collection of forums, because I have been having extreme nervousness about the procedure. Words of Motivation and advice are desperately needed! :) I have attached a picture of myself at my current weight of 240.

I am not having plication done. I decided to just go with the lapband by itself. Thank you so much for your kind words!

      Surgery is set for 10/4/21. At this point I haven't had any coffee, alcohol, carbonated drinks, or caffeine in general for over a month. Too bad it just hit pumpkin spice season! I'm missing my coffee!

      I bought a box (7 servings) of peaches and cream oatmeal (used one) and pumpkin spice pancake mix (none used).  I no longer want them.  The exp dates are 4/2023 and 10/2022, respectively.  I live in Manatee Co, FL.  Will take $10 for all.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.
