Hi..i understand exactly how you fill. I am going through it too "fear of failure" for the past couple weeks I am not sleeping or even thinking right. Very anxious. I talked to the psychiatric for the group and she said that is better to experience this emotions now before surgery, because you are preparing the emotional part of yourself it will prevent depresion after the surgery, it is like grieving the anticipated change. Hang in there its going to be fine

I know I'm ready! Started packing yesterday since it was a good distraction to those eating that "bad for you but yet so delicious" food! I only packed a comfy pair of PJ's, robe, slippers, Chapstick, something to wear home, my favorite blankie and my iPhone charger. That just about covered my husbands needs when he went through this last year. My turn! Good luck everyone!!!

Good morning my fellow July 8th sleevers.

It's exciting to just have the last three days / last weekend, before our new self. I thought it was going to be difficult staying off all the bad holiday foods, but maybe due to the nerves it has been rather easy. I hope you all enjoyed a nice holiday yesterday.

My mission for this weekend is the following:

pack my bag, still need to get some slippers.

get a massage ( To be as relaxed as possible)

Clean my house really well

And truly just enjoy this special count down with my family. I have a daughter who is 19, who she and I share the same struggle with weight, except I, with the medical problems that come with it. She is very excited for me. Our goal is to start a journey together. Me with my sleeve and she with a strong will. My husband is also very supportive. I hope I can influence my family transition into improved eating habits, so that our family of five can overall improve to better health.

Anyone like to share what their weekend count down must do is?

I'm spending it with my family and quite honestly until Sunday - food funeral-Ing my face off. Bad? Yes. But this is how I'm dealing with this...knowing full well that come Sunday am (when i have to start clear liquids) life changes. For the better.

Even though I couldn't partake in all of the amazing cocktails with my cousins yesterday I played with their kids (reminding me that I will have more energy for them) and talked about my new life. My cousins are like my siblings. They helped me not think of the nerves and only think of the amazing journey ahead. Anything with something is worth working for. And I'm going to work my ass off.

I'm soooooo hungry (clear liquid diet since Monday) I hope this weekend Flys by super fast. I'm so ready to be sleeved!

So tomorrow (sat), my last thing to do for pre op is go to the hospital pre-register get a second pregnancy test and a blood type screening for two units of blood just in case. They will put a little red band on my wrist, give me the magic cleanser for my tummy and Monday morning I'll be at the hospital at 8:00 for a 10:00 surgery!! Yayyyyy!!!

Praying that everyone has a noneventful surgery with a safe recovery♡

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
