I just found this site today. I am scheduled for August 15.

Awesome. I'm so excited. I hope we can support each other throughout the process as we will be going through the post diet at the same time.

It took me a year or so to make the decision' date=' but now I am committed. I would have it tomorrow if they could fit me in. I go for my pre-op visit on the 30th and start the 2 week pre-op diet. I am SO ready.[/quote']

I would do it tomorrow too!

Hi, I am new to this site as well. I have been reading daily, I have my final visit on the 22nd and get to meet with my surgeon and pick my date! Will be first or second week of August :-) hoping to stay with this group and learn more as I'm getting nervous!

That's great. I feel better knowing that there will be lots of support as we go through this process. I just keep telling myself how good it will be to be healthy and energetic. I feel like the weight is keeping me from living the best life I can have.

Hi, I'm getting banded on the 5th and have already started my pre-op diet a week ago. I'm super excited but nervous at the same time! I found this website a week ago and would love to keep in contact with you all as we start this journey to a slimmer and healthier us! I'm 36 and a mum to two gorgeous twin girls. My starting weight is 399 (ouch! How did I let it get that bad?!?) and after my first week on pre-op I've lost 13. My surgeon has me on 4 weeks of pre-op so 3 more weeks to go!

That would be great. I am 36 also and have 2 sons 13 and 10. I often wonder how I got here in my life. I feel sick all the time and have no energy. I can't live in regret so I am going to move forward! I don't start my preop diet til the week before. You are doing great! I will be here for support.

Thanks healthydnp! You have a great attitude to losing weight. No sense in beating ourselves up for how we got here, the important thing now is to move forward. I'm amazed at how much better my back and energy levels are after losing only 13, so can't imagine how great it will be to be a normal weight again.

I enjoyed my last week of "freedom" too!! I know I'll be able to eat my fave foods again, but I felt like I needed to say goodbye for now lol. I still have my food blender from when my girls were babies and have already put it to good use. I was getting a little sick of steamed green vege every night, so used them to make a Soup with a little stock (surgeon said it was ok). But I'm sure after the surgery it will get a lot more use! :)

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
