Hello I'm from Chapel Hill got my surgery May 13 at UNC and I love my Doctor for the person who getting theirs dine at UNC Dr.Overby is the best good luck. The only problem I've had is really bad nausea abd constipation but it's gotten better. My food intake is still a work in progress but I'm eating more than I use to the key is exercise. Good Luck!!!!

Scheduled for July 23rd, they want the hernia surgeon in there as well. I really liked the surgeon so that helps me.

Good luck to everyone!

Process has been fairly easy. I started my pre-op diet last week. He required 1 week of 2 shakes, 2 crisp Snacks and 1 lean and green meal. On Wednesday I'll start 5 liquid shakes until the day before my surgery on July 30th. Good luck!!!

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
