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.

      Donated about 80 Shirts that are too large on me. 
       
      Pretty much decreased my wardrobe by 80% and have only a few items. 
      Guess I'll be doing laundry more.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
