Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

Well hello, November. How I've longed to see you.



Recommended Posts

My surgery is next Monday (the 9th). I was originally scheduled for 9/24 but had to be postponed because my stomach was full of ulcers. I have Erosive Gastritis so the lining is wearing away. I cannot wait to have a "normal but smaller" stomach. Hoping the sleeve goes well, but I am prepared if there's too much damage and need bypass. One week left of liquids. I bet this week flies by.

Who's with me in November and where is your surgery? What are your feelings as we're now into November? liquid diet stage yet (if required)?

I'm at NYU in Manhattan. No time yet though. I'm excited. Liquids since last week, but liquids with one light meal since September because of the ulcers.

Good luck to all!

My date is November 9th, too, I was tentatively going to be in January, but my surgeon had a cancellation and I was given the option. I have a two week liquid diet also, it's actually not as horrible as I imagined!

Something clicked in my brain today, though, once I saw November it just got real!! I'm excited, too, but nervous.

I go for my pre op surgical consult tomorrow and I saw someone who was sleeved about two years ago who looks so frail and thin and now I am worried that could happen to me. I want to be healthy - not uber thin. Will I be able to control when the weight loss needs to stop without gaining it all back? I am writing this instead of doing what I really want to do (which is find anything in my house to eat myself stupid and sabotage my appointment tomorrow).

I am actually getting really excited.

My surgery is on the 12th and I started the 10 day diet today.

It almost seems to me like I am eating so much on this diet. 3 shakes a day plus 1 Soup and 1 Protein bar then 1 lowfat dairy item... along with all the broth, sugar free Popsicles, and sugar free Jello I can handle.

I don't feel like I am on a diet other than not having to chew anything.

I am a bit concerned about my blood sugar levels though without anything carb-y throughout the day.

I will keep checking my sugar.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      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!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
