Recommended Posts

Hey guys i am 23 years old, i am extremely excited for my surgery coming up in October. My first visit was on August 6, 2014 and I am so happy that I was able to get the process done within 2 months. I am looking for buddies that are getting surgery around the same time as me so that we can encourage each other. I haven't told anyone that I am getting this surgery done so I am on my own. My birthday is on the 4th and I call this a birthday gift lol. I am 5'10 and 298 and my goal is to reach 150. So if you are getting surgery in October as well please feel free to comment, lets keep in touch!

p.s. idk if i should post pictures up yet...should i?

I am scheduled for surgery on November 10... Yikes! Scared outta my mind. I have days where I'm excited and think okay I can do this then other days I want to back out! I'm quite concerned though as I haven't heard anything about a liquid diet before surgery that's everyone is talking about... I do have to do a diet about 2 weeks before the surgery. But nothing mentioned of a clear liquid diet..
