How exiting, our month will be here sooner than we know it! Of course I dont feel that way at the moment, but at this point I'm on cruise control. I've already been through the emotional roller coaster: I was origionally going to have surgery in March but BC changed their requirements in 2015 going from 3 months to 6 month weight check...everything happends for a reason and now i'm happy to be a May sleever especially since my Bday is in May.

My doctor stated that I don't have to start the pre op diet until 2 weeks prior to surgery. My birthday is April 26, so I'm having a blow out this year.

My Doc also stated that Pre Op will be two weeks before surgery, ALL liquid DIET.

When I first started this journey in Nov I was so determined and motivated that I was on information overlaod. Reading everything I could and trying to learn everything I could, to prepare me for pre and post surgery. I had a bump in the road with my insurance becuase they changed the requirements in 2015 from 3 to a 6 month weight check and this threw me for a loop (since I had everything done). I was on an emotional roller coaster for 1 week and second week I started feeling better, but during this time I was still doing everything the Nut asked that I do and eat. The only thing I did stop doing is walking on the treadmil, which I am focused just trying to get back that 100% motivation. Which is where I'm at now. I eat 1400 calorie meals (veggie and Protein and very little of the extra). I feel like I'm on auto pilot right now and going forward just trying to get to the finish line before the real journey begins.

What about you ladies, how has your journey been?

Hi 'MAY SLEEVERS'.. I'm new to this site and "one of you." :P .. I've not been given my actually date yet, just told it will be in May. It seemed SO far away and now I am nervous as if it's coming up so fast. I have a million questions so signed up for this site tonight hoping to find fellow sleevers so am glad to see you all here!

I have a few things left to do. Blood work, EKG, Chest X-ray and 3required visits with a therapist discussing my 28 year relationship ending in divorce. Apparently, that affected me somehow? lol .. With all of the other hoops I've jumped through, I feel like these last few things are small.

@@bvenegas ... I had the opposite experience with my insurance. At my last weigh in I was told in 2015 my insurance now only requires 3months rather than 6 so everything was moved up. Talk about a feeling of a PHYSICAL fast forward lol.. I was excited at first, but after having a week to think about it.. I am nervous and feel ill prepared mentally..

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
