Tinkle and poo before you go in and maybe you'll be down that pesky pound. Hey every scale weighs different, your surgeon will probably think that's all it is when they weigh you presurgery. I'm going to have a bypass also, I'm 72, my BMI is 45, 5ft8in tall and weighed 323 when I had to see my PCP last Wednesday for something else. So see I'm not a tiny person either. You are gonna be just fine.

And my story goes on and on. Called this am. First they told me they couldn't find me at all, then they said I didn't have anything scheduled since all the ones completed in January. Talked to surgeon's office person, said it had been submitted and approval,was back, had I received my presurgery packet of paperwork? Nope I said and the mail had gone already today. Well I should have it by Wednesday. Yes she believes it is still,in for that day. Hmmm then Amber my Bariatric Facilitator calls, I tell her all the things that have transpired. She is going to talk to Kathie, the head scheduler in surgeon's office and call me Tuesday morning. My life is becoming a cheap soap opera daily. Is she or isn't she, will she or won't she,to cut or not to cut? HELP!

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.
