So we are :-) I am getting nervous excited

This has taken some time to get here, we have been very focused. Now we have the date and most our task are over the mind wants to take over and go negative. A big part of this journey is; we have to change Mind, Body and Soul. So start working on the mind peace. We KNOW this is right for us or we would not have made it this far! We can do this!!!

Did they give you any samples of Protein mixes or drinks for your preop diet or did they just give you a list of what to buy?

I'm right with you! I'll be going in for mine on the 14th of October and have been a little emotional lately when I speak with my children mostly.

I was like this with my 4th and final pregnancy as well .... I want to know the mortality rates - I want to know complications & what they look like...

I am fearful and scared too - I'm trying to give it all to the higher power!

There are so many major health reasons 'why' I need this ... My pros far out weigh the cons... Luckily!

Prayers to you!!

Hi, I just quit smoking in July. I never thought I would be able to overcome that hurdle because I had attempted to quit so many times before. I was determined to quit for my health and for a quick recovery after surgery. It also helped that my surgeon required me to quit 3 months before surgery :).

I want to give you some tips to overcome the urge. You will probably experience your worst withdrawal the first 2 weeks. Try to make flushing the nicotine from your system top priority (morning until night); drinking cranberry and or grapefruit juice and lots of Water. Also begin taking a Multivitamin. Once the nicotine leaves your system the craving will subside.

You can do it and hope this will help you.

Thank you so much for your thoughts and guidance! Apologize for not seeing it sooner. I've gotta get the kids to set my notifications up properly!!

I was able to stop - it's going on 2 1/2 weeks - still on chantix and will remain until a month after surgery - I am thinking. Have you had your surgery yet? How are you doing?

Do you have to do a 2 week or 1 week pre-op diet?

      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.
