I've been on liquids since yesterday. No 2 week pre op liquids, thank goodness. The 4th was enjoyed with a visit to Coney Island for some fireworks, Nathans hot dog and cheese fries ! I have a 8:30am checkin for 10:30 am start time! Woohoo. May we all have a comfortable and uneventful recovery!

Good morning my fellow July 8th sleevers.

It's exciting to just have the last three days / last weekend' date=' 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?[/quote']

The massage is a great idea! I'm packed for Monday and at this point, I'm just anxious to get to surgery!!! Best of luck to you!

Wow. I can't believe surgery is on Monday. I've been struggling on the two week diet. Like seriously struggling. It sucked!

Clear Liquids all day tomorrow and check in a 6:30 am on Monday.

It's so strange the difference in pre-op diets. But come Monday, we are all in the same place. Beginning a whole new healthier journey. Good luck to my fellow 8'ers! =)

My time is Monday at 3:30. I think it will be very tough all those hours with nothing to drink. Worst of all, the anticipation and count down.

It's bitter sweet, kind of scared, but looking forward to it.

      Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com
