Scared and excited and starving!



Recommended Posts

Hi guys--my name is Amanda. I'm 29 and it's been a long road to this point. I've battled my weight my whole life, and finally i'm here. My bypass is scheduled for this Saturday, December 10th. I'm super excited for the journey ahead, but since it's getting so close i'm feeling scared at the same time--just basically the fact that i have to have surgery...haha. Did you guys feel the same way before you had yours? I've read some posts here that kind of make me feel like i'm not the only one. AND...i'm on my pre-op liquid diet...which for me is only Protein Shakes, broth and clear liquids...and i'm STARVING!!

It'll be worth it, i know. :)

Thanks for listening & i wish all of you the best of luck!

Dec. 19th as well! Not too bad for day 2 so far. 2 shakes and 1 meal also. I am greatfull for that, my main meal has always been dinner meal so this will be a walk in the park. Also stopped the smokes on Sunday. Its been OK, I think about it but it is not pissing me off! I know the time will go fast and all will be real good.

December 19th 2016... I shall be Sleeved! Let the journey begin!!

Really good. Lost a lot of inches off my stomach, thighs, neck decent amount of weight but it cost like 350 bucks to keep it up. Just couldn't afford it. First 5 days were toughest, wife tried it with me she lasted half a day haha.

@@hectorlopez323 You are strong! I've made it to day 3! I've stayed on only liquids as my doc requested, today seems a little easier. I'm not as hungry and so far no headache. However...i have to say, if i wasn't almost forced to be on all liquids like this, i would likely be with your wife and not make it half a day. Hahahha.


@@Joules007 Yes, it's so exciting and so nerve wracking!! Good luck to you, we got this!

Hahaha. I don't blame you. I just stubborn. I'm prepping myself mentally to be under a lot of pain and feel the worse case scenario. God willing I'll be expecting the worse but won't experience it. See this way even though it will be tough I'd already prepped myself for worse. You'll be fine amanda, you're a young woman; I have no doubt you'll bounce off this quicker than me. Keep us posted!

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
