Anyone else finding that the time just won't go FAST enough until July? How are you all preparing?

Hi Smoggy,

I know. The only thing keeping me sane is the fact that I have been so busy at work. I have cut out 98% of the sodas I was drinking - yay! - I was addicted to that stuff. Other than that, I have been trying to get out and walk for about 30 minutes a few times a week. Also wanting to cut back on carbs - addicted to those, too - but that sure has been hard. I will get more serious about it as it gets closer so my body won't be in as much shock when the time comes. Lastly, I have been on a Vitamin regimen for a couple of months. I guess I am most concerned with the hair loss, so I started Biotin along with my multi Vitamin every day. I will begin taking the recommended zinc, Iron, and Calcium soon, as well.

Keep in touch! Hopefully July will be here before we know it!!!!

I dare you to take a really frank "just before op" pic!

I'll bet you'll thank me when you are svelte and have a comparison photo that's hard to beat! :D

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
