Me too! I feel every tiny bubble in my shakes and they collect and I burp more than I ever have in my life!

I have to let the shakes sit after the shaker bottle to let the air out an that helps.

12/2 sleeved - First postop with doctor and NUT. Lost 11 pounds since surgery and on to stage 4. That cheese stick tasted so good! Good luck to those who are yet to have their Dec surgery.

Have you tried one that's not all whey isolate? I found I just can't stand whey isolate, but when I tried a blend (synthrax matrix for me) it was a whole different thing

Hi Everybody!

I haven't gotten a chance to say Congrats to all those who have been sleeved so far this month!!! I bow down to you because I'm still waiting for my day with anticipation, excitement, and nervousness. It's a heady combination. :). I had my last pre-op consultation with my doctor on Wednesday and have decided to do the morning of Dec 17th instead of being the last patient on Dec 16th. So my day was changed.

My doc did not put me on a pre-op diet and, unfortunately, over the Thanksgiving break, I gained about a pound. At least the scale says that. I was super upset about it because I've been very mindful of my eating but not enough, I guess. I'm trying not to feel so discouraged about that and stay hopeful about the changes I have made and will continue to make.

Anyway, again Congratulations! And I can't wait for my own day!

So I just told someone about my surgery coming up on Monday and I got the rudest response which is making me really upset. They said, oh no that's terrible. You couldn't do it on your own? Meanwhile, SHE was huge herself! I'm feeling a little discouraged :(

Don't even think that what she said was about you. You are showing courage, making positive decisions about your future and you are giving yourself the option of a much healthier, happier and longer life . She is ignorant about this whole journey to wellness, she is jealous of your bravery to make such a substantial change in your life, she doesn't have have the self confidence to make this kind of decision for herself. You don't own any of her perspectives or dismal outlook.

You are strong and you can do this. Perhaps when she sees your success in the coming weeks and months she will see you as the inspiration she needs to take this plunge for herself! She's just not ready and your determination is likely a scary mirror in which she is reflecting her current condition.

Feel great about YOU!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
