Hi November sleeves! Just wondering how those who will have surgery before thanksgiving plan on dealing with the holiday! And those after who are on a pre-op diet are going to handle it. I know we're are all different times during the month but all have to face this day dedicated to our enemy FOOD!!!!

Don't worry, you won't care. As you can see below, my sleeve date was 10/4/11 and I was 7 weeks out last Thanksgiving and I didn't miss it. We had a big Thanksgiving potluck at our church and I had about 5 things on my plate (about a quarter size serving of each thing) and ate about 6 bites. I was also over 35 lbs lost so that was a much better trade off for me. You can splurge for the day and eat whatever you want, but for once in your life, you won't want to eat much.

I cook Thanksgiving dinner every year, and this year it will be less than two months after my surgery. I'm planning on having a bit of turkey (if I can tolerate it) and mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes. I think my splurge will be a bite of pumpkin pie.

I'm four weeks out and still don't have much desire to eat. In fact, I think I've only had one craving .....and it passed quickly. I still have to remind myself to eat most of the time. Even if you do decide to eat you'll just have a few bites and you'll be done. Love my sleeve! :-)

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
