Hi lady vs, yes the environment is odd. I mean these are people who has WLS surgery! And yesterday I had a coworker sit down with me, and we are talking and she must have said "but you look so different" so many times it was uncomfortable. Finally another woman at the table tried to stop her and say "she looks great". Of course, she kept going on. So with no support from the Banded or the Sleeved, I've got that going on. As I struggle with this journey, I'm really finding out who my friends are and who aren't even more so than ever. And sometimes it really sucks. Even enough to the point I just want to dip my head in a Barrel of ice cream. Obviously, I won't. But I will admit I cheated yesterday. I didn't go overboard, either. Yesterday, in a whole was very difficult for me. And I'm kinda mad that I gave in. But it's done and I'm going to try to pick myself up and try again. -_-

I totally understand. While I do have a support system, it's still not like coming here because they are just not on the level of where I am with my journey. I have cheated and probably will continue to in the future but that's life. We start over again the next day and try to do better. Anyway, hugs to you. :)

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
