TXTina & ylluz - it is nice to know two other people here on the boards having surgery the same day as me. My office did not give me a "pre-op" diet, but rather told me I needed to lose 15lbs before they would schedule me. Of course I had to do other stuff, psych visit, testing, and meet with the nutritionist. I've met with the nutritionist twice. I've lost a total of 36lbs since starting in April and I am just going to continue to do what I've been doing up until the surgery day. I did decide to GIVE UP Peanut Butter (the natural kind) because I found myself on a slippery slope with it. I love it with apple slices but it is hard to limit myself to the 2 TBSP. I actually have a TBSP measure at work to keep me honest!

I wish you both the best of luck in the upcoming days! I do all of my pre-op stuff on 8/6. I got the official letter confirming that I am scheduled for 8/17 today and it looks like I am the FIRST SURGERY OF THE DAY for my surgeon! I'm scheduled for 7:30 AM......WOOT WOOT.

Sodas for me have been so hard to give up. I just want a coke lol. But I have substituted those moments by Water with my little grab-n-go Crystal Light. Hoping to soon substitute my Crystal Light powder with Syntrax nectar.

      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.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
