July sleevers! Are we ready!



Recommended Posts

Call the insurance company and inquire as to if they received all necessary paper work and if they had made a decision yet. I've noticed that the people who are inquiring get a faster notice.?? Just a suggestion

I did and found out that my appeal was approved, I got a call from my doctors office yesterday and I am having my sleeve on the 24th of July. I go to my pre op nutrition class and my last doctors visit after the class. Looks like my surgery is finally a go thanks for the advise.

What Vitamins did you purchase? I don't know if I will be able to chew any vitamins....yuck!

Your life will depend on it.

Celebrate has two that taste ok. Orange and berry. I purchased Centrum chewables. They were on sale.

Check out drugstore.com. They sell liquid forms of all the supplements we need. They are made by wellsse.

Call the hospital and find out what time they put you on the schedule. What a rotten deal for them not to call you back. I think medical people are becoming so bad about practicing patient care. It is long gone

Heres an update. I called Blue Cross yesterday they told me that my surgery was approved and was in the system. I should be recieving the letter in a few days. I called my doctors office and they have me scheduled for the 22nd of July. I will start my 10 day preop diet next week. I am so excited and ready for this. I want to lose weight so bad and get back in shape so I can enjoy my retirement. Wish me luck

I'm right there with you. Did all my pre-op testing. Ready to start my pre-op 2week liquid diet. Can't wait to unleash my skinny girl trapped in this body!

My surgery date is July 5th' date=' but I don't know what time because the scheduler never called me back today! I am stressed because tomorrow is a holiday so I'm not sure how I will get the info. Clear liquids of Fourth of July![/quote']

You should have been given a number to call. Try to call yourself.

I don't have my surgeon consultation until Tuesday, but I just ordered myself an Abdominal binder from Amazon liked I used after a c-section and a hernia repairb/c i felt like it made recovery faster. it's just a big, firm, elastic, velcro girdle that supports your stomach. I hope the surgeon says it's OK!

We will rock it!! Where are you having surgery and your current stats?

I am 5'9" and 331 pounds...having my surgery at Penn State Hershey Medica Center in PA. I am aiming for 170-180 for my goal weight! I've never been lower than 245 in my adult life and was well over 330 during high school. I'm ready to shed this baggage once and for all!

Where will you have surgery?

      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.
