With the holiday the day before, i was surprised when she told me it was the next open day! I was honestly thinking they would schedule me more towards the end of July! But I also was expecting it to take 2 weeks for insurance approval, not 2 days!!

July 5th is going to be the first day of our new lives!!

I know the woman I had was like "so the next available day isn't until.....July 5th" I was expecting mid-late August or something from the way she paused. So exciting!

Hehe I was expecting to get a date for mid to late June so July 5th was alright for me too! My insurance really dragged their feet otherwise I could have had an earlier date.

Can't wait for surgery day!! I've started stocking up on Protein Shakes and other approved stuff for the liquid pre-op/ 1st week of post op diets!

Well...I have a BMI of 40. That's my DRs threshold for surgery. So he said I only have to be on liquids for 24 hours prior to surgery. But I started yesterday trying to cut back.

I don't feel like I'm as prepared as I should be. Because of my BMI, I could not fall under 244# or my insurance would deny me and I would have had to start the entire process over again that I started in Dec. so I've had to continue with my bad eating just to maintain. Now I feel unprepared. I have 4 kids and I haven't practiced cooking the good stuff much so my whole house is diving head first into this process. I've failed for the last 15 years trying to loose so I'm just freaking out that I won't do good with this.

How's your preop??

Started my 2 wk preop liquid diet for my July 10 surgery.....I know what you feel like to be unprepared! My BMI is 37, and it has been for the last year. I haven't really lost any since I have made the decision to have the surgery last fall.

These next 2 weeks are going to be tough-5 day camping trip with the family...those Protein Shakes aren't exactly beer and smores-so, I am just dreading this. But I think about how bad I hate being fat. it consumes my every day and I hate myself for that.

I am sure that everyone here has similar feelings, but it doesn't make this much easier!

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
