Recommended Posts

I'm in Bartow County, GA. I had my sleeve on Dec 4th

Awesome! Where did you have yours done? How are you doing?

I can't believe tomorrow is one week already for the 12/2 sleevers! Doing well, but still can't sleep on my side.

Time sure does fly! Glad you're doing well! After my gallbladder removal last year, it was a couple of weeks before I could get on my side, but I don't tolerate pain very well and the meds don't do much for me. I learned to sleep on my back during that time (was always a stomach sleeper). Good thing I did, I have a feeling I'll be sleeping that way for a while again!

What stage are you on with your diet?

Congrats to all you December "babies". I was sleeved 10/17/13. I started at 238 5'6inches. Now I'm down to 207!!! 170 is my goal weight.

My dr's goal is somewhere around 150-160, but I've been that small before and it doesn't look healthy on me.

Is anyone drinking the Isopure clear drinks? I got some last night because they were on sale. They have 40 grams of Protein so I got a few. If you are, which flavors did you like?

The tangerine flavor is really good. Taste like orange juice. I got the tropical but haven't tasted it yet but I heard it taste like fruit punch

First, I want to thank the person who offered me support when I was struggling with life circumstances last week. I never got around to thanking you. I'm doing better with my breakup than I was before, and my mom will be coming with me to the hospital the day of surgery.

So tonight was my last night of 'normal' eating. 2 week preop diet begins tomorrow with 3 shakes and one small meal a day. I took my son out to our favorite chinese place for my 'last supper'. When it was time to pay the bill a bit of a panic attack got me. The reality of what is coming in 14 days started to leak in a bit.

Good luck to the upcoming sleevers and those postop in your recovery.

Glad your doing better and your mom is coming to help you out. It is weird how life changes when we least expect. It seems to happen to me all the time, but what is even better is the Blessings that come out of it. You got this and I pray everything will work out great for you.

Thank you. God has his timing. It probably would have been harder to end things with BF after having him support me through surgery and weight loss. God forbid things fell apart this week or next, that drama between intense finals weeks and having planned originally for him to help me- I would have been left in a terrible emotional and logistical lurch. It makes this all a bit more overwhelming for me now though, coping with that loss of security/comfort I got from my partner and the fear thats creeping up for the unknown ahead- both surgery and life.

It's a bitter sweet time, I imagine for a lot of us. We are scared, excited, scared again, and hopeful. We have to let go of a part of us, overeating and comfort eating, that has got most of us to this point- become a habit and often a way of coping with feelings- and then surgically remove that coping mechanism and adopt new healthy exercise and eating habits to turn this dream of finally being slim into an unfathomable reality. Least, thats how it feels to me.

So many things to look forward to down the road. To be fit, attractive, full of energy! Getting my associates in the spring and shopping for a nursing school, and other big life decisions. I wanted a partner to take this journey with me- but God knows bets. I will work on myself and hope that, as it is said, God doesn't take something away without giving us something better in it's place. Thanks for listening to my ramblings. It was a bit of a rough night. Making big life changes is hard and scary, and being brave is hard some times!

I forgot to tell ya'll what my fortune cookie at my 'last supper' said: "Your golden opportunity is ahead of you". Yes, indeed- they have no idea. Love it when God speaks to me through fortune cookies...lol. This is a golden opportunity we have.

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
