Surgery Scheduled 10/8/14 - Support Pals Wanted



Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone:

My surgery date is scheduled for October 8th, 2014 and I am ecstatic. I currently weigh 280 pounds and I am 5'9" tall. I would like to lose 100 pounds by my 50th birthday (July 11th, 2015). WOW...that would be an awesome 50th birthday present to me. :)

I have only told my husband and immediate family about my surgery. Therefore, I would love to meet new friends on here to support each other and to share our experiences.

If you would like to exchange emails or phone numbers to support each other, please let me know.

Thanks!!!!

Hi! Congratulations on your date! I was a revision from band to bypass on May 21, 2014 and have lost 55 pounds. I think you will have no problem losing the 100. Feel free to pm me anytime :)

Good Morning NOLAGal,

My surgery is scheduled for October 14, 2014. The only people have have discussed my surgery with are my husband and my best friend. This is my first time joining an online community. I think it will be important for me to have the support of others. I turned 50 last December and really wanted to make a fresh start. I'm looking forward to following your progress.

My post got cut off before I was finished. Anyway I have a couple more appointments to take care of but I already have my approval so the surgery is going to be here before I know it. How's your pre op liquid diet going? Keep us posted on how you do once your surgery happens. Thanks good luck

I'm not in October but on nov 5th. I turn 50 next October and need to loose about 110lbs. Have told only my husband, kids and two close friends. I want to do this for my health and now that my kids are either married or in college it's time to focus on myself. I'm a bit nervous but super excited too. If I can figure this sight out I hope to connect with a few so we can support one another!

My surgery is scheduled for 10/14 at 11:15. I am 60 and have 100 pounds that I am giving back to the universe. Last time I lost 70 I found them! So now off they go to those in 3rd world countries our parents warned us about.

Good luck to all in our new adventure. I hope to have more contact with my fellow fall 2014 loser friends here. Cheers!

Good luck and there are a couple different threads for us October folks.

Congrats on your surgery date!

I am from nola too :)

I am waiting on one dr. To send my report in, it's been three weeks as of tomorrow. I called his office today and of course he's not in. I was hoping to have my case turned into the ins. Company by last week.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
