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!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
