Nerves are normal. The hardest bit is getting through the liquid food stage and after that it gets easier everyday. The actual surgery is not scary at all your asleep and recovery is so fast you are only uncomfortable for a few hours. It's a little sacrifice for a lot of good.

When were you able to tolerate more solids ? I'm 2 weeks out and seems like only sifts are good right now . Prob . 2 more weeks I'm thinking , that's what Dr . Thought . Any suggestions ? I'm not in a hurray , just occassionlly interesting in venturing out and it doesn't work .

My surgery date is April 10th and I'm just scared about the unkown. I haven't had any thoughts about backing out of it, which is good. Good luck to all of you!

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.

      This virus is starting to get to me.  I am still doing my exercise (running and walking the dog and strength training but I am finding that I am snacking more, I don't like this!!  
      Is this happening to anyone else? What are you doing to combat it?
