Fort Worth Buddies?

I also found out that since my BMI is 42, I will more than likely only have to have a 1 week preop diet. I will have to purchase the shakes. 1 weeks worth is $75.

We will probably be sleeved around the same time! Melissa told me last week that March surgeries are already booked, so I will be April. The cardiac clearance was not bad at all. I'm so excited for us!

Are any of you planning on attending Dr. Kim's meeting?

JOIN US FOR A TOUR OF DOWNSIZE FITNESS!

Downsize Fitness was created based on the philosophy that though it's not their intent, typical chain gyms can be overwhelming and intimidating to those with a lot of weight to lose. Downsize is the country's first overweight-only gym.
Event Details:
Date: Wednesday, March 5th from
Time: 6:30-7:30
Location: 920 Melbourne Road, Hurst, TX 76053

How are you my Fort Worth buddies? I hardly get on here, but belong to the December group on Facebook. I try to come on here a few times a month. I do get the daily digest emails, so if there is a post here - I at least am able to read them.

I have been working out - basically walking but about mid April started doing classes - Love the variety! I have done Zumba Tone, Zumba Step, Zumba Fitness, Kickboxing /Turbo Jam, Pilates and Yoga. Most of those were at the Watauga Rec Center and starting back up at 24hour yesterday and did the Zumba Step - loved it. I am trying either TurboKick or Bodypump tomorrow and Insanity on Sunday Morning, If anyone is interested in meeting up I go to the one on Western Center - Just let me know!

Hope everyone is doing fabulous!!!

Hello! I'm a Fort Worth girl. It's great to see so many of us here. :)

I was banded in 2006 by Dr. Smith. I've been on and off the "band wagon" so many times I can't count. Right now I am 40 pounds heavier than I was on the day of my surgery and I'm miserable. I've been totally unfilled for about a year because i just got so frustrated with my band, but I'm going back in tomorrow for a fill and am going to restart my journey. I've been doing a lot of research on this forum to try to remember how it was in the beginning - how to eat, what to eat, etc.

I appreciate having so many great folks to commiserate with, lean on, cheer for and get advice from.

Good luck and stay strong!

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
