Oh My God It's Going To Happen!!!

Recommended Posts

I am shocked. Totally shocked. I am finally going to have my surgery! I had an appointment with my surgeon today and I have finally lost enough weight that we are going to proceed. So next Monday morning, bright and early, I'm hauling my tushie down to the hospital and banding up!!!

I was so nervous about the appointment I didn't let myself think about the reality of the surgery! So now it's hitting me all at once. But I am super duper pooper scooper excited. I'm going to spend the weekend stocking up on liquids and trying to get mentally prepared. Does anyone have any good advice for the last 4 days before I take the plunge?

I am so stinkin excited. Can I say that one more time? I know reality will set in soon and it won't be all fun and games, but DANG I'm enjoying feeling good about it right now.

Ok, so two random thoughts...

Random #1 - I read the best quote the other day on Puddin Pie's blog. It said "Where am I going and why am I in this handbasket?" Is that not HYSTERICAL?! That is such an apt description of my life sometimes..

Random #2 - I read something earlier DeLarla posted about marshmallows and Ritz crackers and I had to laugh because I grew up eating something similar. My mom would take a saltine, put a slice of cheddar cheese on it and a marshmallow on top and put it in the microwave for a few seconds to let everything melt together. She calls them "Poor Boy Cookies" Her mom made them for her when she was growing up. Sounds weird, I know! But it is the best combination of salty/sweet, chewy/crunchy, savory all at the same time. IT WORKS TOGETHER!

Ok, I will stop my ramblin now. Just had to share the good news. Yay for me! :clap2:

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?

      April Surgery
      Am I the only struggling to get weight down. I started with weight of 297 and now im 280 but seem to not lose more weight. My nutrtionist told me not to worry about the pounds because I might still be losing inches. However, I do not really see much of a difference is this happen to any of you, if so any tips?
