3) wishing each and every one of you continued and long term success!!! You got this, even when you think you don't, you really do.

Hello, I just joined. :)

Yesterday was my first appointment with the nutritionist. I still need to make an appointment with the psycologist and attend some group meetings. Since I can only meet with the nutritionist once a month and I have three more appointments to go, I won't be having the surgury until the spring. I don't know how many apts I need with the psych. I have been reading through all of the paperwork that I've been given so far. Anyone who calls getting surgery the 'easy way out' has no clue!

Congrats!!! The process is definitely annoying but so worth it! You're lucky your insurance only requires just a few diet classes. It varies from person to person. You'll do fine with the eval too, don't stress. I personally found it to be more useful after surgery, because you learn why you were eating the way you were before and learn how to control it which i needed. And it was nice because when i do need more help, i can always go back to that person if needed. Best of luck to you, you'll do great!

Pre-Op but surgery is next Tuesday. I'm pumped up with excitement, my 2 week liquid diet has me down by 30 pounds and feel so mush better. Yet I read horror stories on the post-op recovery. I'm praying for a smooth recovery, yet preparing myself for far less than smooth!

Your recovery will be fine. Don't focus to much on Protein the first few days, because you will have no appetite and might struggle with liquids. Just focus on staying hydrated as best you can and walking every hour to get the gas pressure to move.
