I'm actually starting to get arm pits! I told my nurse coach this and she laughed! That was a new one on her! I said I've always had fat arms and now there is some definition. Lol!!

I'm constantly trying to cross my legs. Lol. Sometimes I can and sometimes I can't but I'm so close to being able to do it comfortably. I can't wait!!

I wanted to add more angry emoticons to my message but this site won't allow that. There's a cap on how many emoticons you can have in a message??? Why on earth is that???

I know that I'm smaller but, when I go shopping I still find myself trying on my old size. Then I have to go get everything in a smaller size. This has got to STOP!!! :blink:

Wow Blondiee, you have done GREAT! Amazing weight loss, and terrific about your size changes - but yes, the expense bites. I stopped at our local Value Village today though, and found a cute Jones New York cardigan and a wonderful summer T with sleeves long enough to cover my upper arms - FIND! Try the thrift stores if you can, and costco has great prices on things like basic nice jeans. Just be sure to wear something like leggings to slip them on over - there's no changing rooms.

My surgery is next Tuesday, and I'm SO jealous of how great you've done - I want to be you!

Thanks for the encouragement Blondiee. I just got back from my pre-op and all is well! He's pleased that he couldn't 'find' my liver and said that means my pre-op diet is doing what it ought to. Also said I'd lost 13 pounds - I said, 'No - ten' but then he told me their scale is heavy by a good three pounds! LOL. So even better. It's only been about 12 days on the diet too. No loss the past three days, but it'll come off when it does. I"m under 900 calories a day, so it pretty much has to.

I'm so excited - Tuesday is my day for surgery! Yes!!

      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.
