December 2013 Sleevers Come In!



Recommended Posts

I am scheduled for December 16th, too! Less than 3 weeks away, here we go! I am on a 1200 calorie diet now and will start 2 weeks of Optifast on December 4th.

Weigh in is tomorrow morning for Monday surgery. Usually you weigh in the day before surgery but I didn't get the full two weeks because of the Holiday but I still lost some weight. Also, have Boot Camp tomorrow with a group of others having surgery on Dec. 2nd (hopefully I make some local sleeve friends). In the boot camp you get to meet your full surgical team and get your goodie bag which includes a buddy pillow and some sample products. You also get to ask any last minute questions or express any concerns. Then it off to see my surgeon, to go over any additional "personal" matters I am uncomfortable discussing in front of the group.

Then it's all wrapped up. Hopefully with a nice pretty bow!

I'm nervous, but I am so ready.. 12/2/13, will be my New Birth-Day!

Tell me about it. Plus I'm prepping to cook my world famous candied yams, deviled eggs and Sweet Potato Pies for Thanksgiving. My sister agreed to do it this year to spare me the torture, but my family voted and said..NO WAY..we'll just sit with you and support you while you're cooking.

Just finished making the homemade pie crust and I use a bit of vanilla and lemon flavoring in the crust, and mixed with real butter and the sprinkle of cinnamon on the bottom.. O.M.G. iT SMELLS SOOOOOO GOOD. LOL But I've been sucking down Water and chicken broth..and listening to music..dancing about while I'm cooking. Just took a break because pie crusts are almost done..and all the other prep work has been completed.

We can do this... Oy!

So excited to see newbies getting their dates. I am traveling and don't have a way to update the list, but I am keeping track and if Atlanta is away, I will update it as soon as I return.

Welcome to our new friends! We're glad you're here!

I'm on day 8 of my pre op diet and down 16 lbs. Hate the shakes but forcing them down. With surgery less than 3 weeks away I'm getting more nervous each day but still committed to following through.

I also hate the shakes, but am following the diet. The last few days I have been emotional about not being able to eat, this is harder than I anticipated. Two more days with the shakes then pure liquids. Surgery on Monday!!

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
