Hi everyone! I am in a weightloss study through my insurance and received my surgery approval on Friday. My next step is to meet with my doctor and then set my surgery date which has to be done by October 12th. I'm excited, anxious and ready to start new. It's a pleasure to meet you all!

I was sleeved on August 5th, but had a minor complication that kept me hospitalized for 10 days. I am still not tolerating the diet very well, but on a positive note. I have lost over 30 pounds since the surgery.

@TheBlissfulNatural: That is the same plan I had for 2 weeks and I lost 10 pounds. so you have that to look forward to. I will get easier though. What I did was make sure I drunk plenty and I do plenty of Water in between. Sometimes I would eat my Protein and salad for lunch cause I was so hungry, lol. I was also allowed extra veggies if I was not satisfied. I must admit though, I did slip a few times. But still lose those 10 pounds! lol

Hi! My surgery is scheduled for October 6 and pre-op diet is scheduled to start on Sept 23rd. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I just ordered some Unjury products...(I was told they are the best). What does your "pre-op" diet routine consist of? I just want to make sure I'm prepared!

@ how many calories do you eat per day and how many carbs as well

I eat between 800-1000 depending on if I get in a good cardio workout. I focus on getting my Protein 80-100 g, and I eat very little complex carbs most days I get maybe 30-40 g.

I log everything I eat in MFP. Typical day:

Early morning Protein shake (30g)

Breakfast: 1/2 c Oat meal, scramble egg, 1 turkey sausage.

Snack: Protein Bar or P3 snack

Lunch: grilled chicken salad

Snack: Protein Shake

Dinner: meat loaf, spinach, or steamed veggies.

I limit carbs because too many makes me stall.
