Just wanted to say hello. A bit on the quiet side so more likely to read than post but had band to bypass revision on the 27th of March. Already my diabetes is gone with no meds blood sugar levels are normal and I've lost 17 pounds(started 275). Feeling great, just can't wait to get my last drain out on the 21st. Just made it to soft foods \o/.

Wow thats great! I also have diabetes. I am having RNY done on April 22nd and presenly I am on the Optifast liquid diet. I had to do it for 4 weeks and I am now on week 3. My insulin has dropped from 96 units at bedtime to 12 units already. I am off one of my pills for my diabetes and I think by time my surgery is here I may be off all of my diabetes meds. I have lost 25lbs and I am so excited to have this done. Good luck :-) Val

Good luck with your surgery! My diabetes was about 40 units daily but I wasn't a good diabetic. Probably should've been higher insulin intake. Luckily my body remembered how to make insulin and I've been diabetes free since 2 days post op. My highest sugar intake now is Greek yogurt and diluted apple juice. My biggest motivations are keeping the diabetes away and shopping. I'm on soft foods now so can't really graze but don't want to even test that habit again. This is a renewal for us, better to keep the old bad habits in the past.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
