Girl, the day before my sleeve, I broke and had a hamburger and a milk shake....just had too. No problems. Would really like one now too, but 8 days out, don't think I will try that.

Well, it been tougher than I ever expected. I don't know what I thought it was going to be like, but this first full week has been rough. It's a total life change all at once and there is no going back after you have it done. People keep telling me it will all be worth it.....time will tell for me. Have to jump back to reality on Monday with back to work and some normalcy . Hoping that will help my mood and sadness I have been having. Good luck.

I'm laughing right now because I'm on day 4 of a 3 week all liquid pre op and we went to the movies today and I did the exact same thing! I think it'll be ok because everything levels out. The main thing is you don't want to gain, and I don't think you have anything to worry about.

I am laughing right now because I told my daughter today I was really wanting to go to the movies today and eat popcorn!! I am on day 9 of a 2 week liquid diet and it's not the easiest thing to do and I admit to chewing some fritos and spitting them out!! It tasted so good and I know it was disgusting but it did the trick to kill the craving! I know I can't be alone in this dirty little secret! LOL

I am so happy to hear I am not the only one that broke down and had some popcorn before my surgery. I go this Monday, February 3 for gastric bypass. I am scared and excited at the same time. I was going to have it done last year and my family talked me out of it, so I had to re-qualify again. This time I’m going through with it.

I hope your family is more supportive of your decision this time. You will at least have us here rooting you on, though! :)

I had liver reducing liquid diet. Clear Liquids only, with the exception of celery, cauliflower, broccoli and pickles. Protein Drinks, broths, Decaf coffee and tea. Awful, but not as bad as what I am on now!!

For me, pre-op was the hardest part of all of this. Do the very best you can and that’s all anyone can ask. It scared me that it was so hard because it made me wonder how.i could ever be successful. I’m doing rather well and with the cravings gone or at least manageable, it is much much easier for me.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
