I'm starting to question if this is the right thing to do

@AprilO74I know the feeling! I'm scheduled for surgery on Wednesday, the 8th and I keep second-guessing myself. One minute I'm confident in my decision and the next, I'm like "ehh I don't know" or I see some study or negative comment or something. However, the vast majority of experiences seem to be positive. I think I'm going to kick myself in the butt if I don't go through with it. I think the permanence is what scares me the most and the "unknown." I think it's somewhat normal to be anxious and to have worries and concerns though. Some people's are just more extreme than others.

Ok me too! Exact same! On on pre-op diet now and feeling so hungry and deprived that I'm having cold feet. We must be normal if 3 of us are feeling this way. Maybe it's the hunger talking..lol

I think it is normal to have those thoughts. I always go back to the comment I hear and see repeatedly “I only wish I had done it sooner.”

I question myself daily, and my husband has been so supportive by telling me hes going to go through it with me and change his diet as well, he has even vowed not to eat in front of me until i can advance my diet. Im a nurse so I am all over the place with the positives and the negatives. But with positive thinking and family/friend support WE CAN DO THIS [emoji6]

Happy to help. I am glad the million posts I read and the hundreds of YouTube videos I watched are paying off for someone besides just me. I lost a lot of sleep reading and watching. This makes it worth it.

I too have been all over YouTube and a few other websites getting insight and as much information I could find to make my decision on the rest of my life. I choose this because I know in my heart it is something that will help me help myself.

I am glad I am not the only one. I feel the same way. Some people on MFP were discouraging someone yesterday, and told her to come here. She made me think about why I am so sure. I truly believe it is because I have spent so much time preparing, mostly by absorbing information from those who have been through it and the doctors who have witnessed it all.

The Premier Protein shakes are good. I am on my last day of them then Clear Liquids all day tomorrow and surgery Wednesday the 8th. The hardest part is the first 2-3 days after that it get easier. At the moment i have no urge for regular food.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
