Hi March Sleevers!! I am also scheduled March 9th. I'm so excited and nervous at the same time. We have to put in a lot of time and effort for this moment. The moment we get to say ... I have a date!! So glad to see all of you and hope we can stay in touch!

Isn't it great to have a date, even if its 4 or 5 weeks away?! I'm excited and nervous, too. What's your pre-op diet look like?

..., along with something to keep my hair from falling out.

My dietitian today said Iron and zinc are mainly what you need to avoid Hair loss. Unfortunately, I ordered my Vitamins without iron.

I'm March 1st.

I've given up coffee, and soda for the most part. The coffee was so hard cuz I sure do love it. But that's pretty much all I've changed. I know I've gained a couple pounds since my last appointment cuz I'm really trying to enjoy my last days of freedom.

Yes, My NUT said I won’t be on the traditional two week diet because I’m considered to have a low BMI. So I have one week replacing 1 meal with a Protein Shake. Other two meals meat and veggies only. Then call in for further instruction for week 2. Pre op diet starts Feb 23.

Hi, was the weight gain an issue? At my last appt with surgeon, I was up 5# from holidays (ugh), but I've almost lost it now. Still I worry that I havent actually lost weight. Still another 3+ weeks until I start the pre-op diet, where I actually get to eat food -- 1200 kcal, 60g carb, 120 g Protein, 4 meals a day. For that I am thankful. OTOH, post surgery is 1 week Clear Liquids, then 2 weeks full liquids. So surgeon is easier on the upside and harder on the downside.

Want to add, I personally am on the fence about Premier Protein -- its too thick for me.

Sorry I haven't been on much but no, there was no weight gain issue, i just chickened out TWICE, now I'm bigger than ever so it's time to get sleeved!

Glad you've had your "come to Jesus" moment and have decoded to go forward. If you've reached the Good weight for a Redwood - a Mite heavy for a Human Being point like me, it's time. I'll be a RnY early-mid March at Mount Carmel in Columbus Ohio. I guess I'm over here as a missionary from the other side. We love our sleeved,brothers and sisters, after all we're in the same battle. It don't matter whether you have a shotgun or a rifle, they both shoot real good and they get the job done. My highest weight was 355, now down to 323. I'm only 5ft8in so I'm still at a BMI of about 47, haven't calculated,it for a while. So shoot me but I neither calculate or weigh myself,if I can get out of it! I still,like me but I. don't like to be reminded of my morbid obesity by doctors. I've got a mirror after all. If you need a surgery buddy or friend I'll volunteer.in the meantime have a good day and,set us know when you get your surgery date.

March 14th here and I have a much longer way to go. I need to lose over 200lbs. I know I can do it, just ready to get the surgery done.

Start my preop diet on 2/28 and I'm trying out Protein Drinks now. Most powders have been fine but extremely sweet. Had an apple melon Isopure today.... horrible! Hehehe

Same here -- March 14th, start pre-op Feb 28, and ready to get the surgery done!

I personally like sfh Pure Protein powders -- I get them at Whole Foods. I like to add a little espresso powder to the chocolate, and tart mixed berries to the vanilla to tone down the sweetness. I'm curious to know if I will like these flavors after surgery! Oh, and I ordered PB2 as a flavor add-in, but I haven't tried it.

I just ordered a mixed box of Premier Protein, strawberry banana, vanilla and chocolate from Amazon. I hope it tastes good because it's going to be my Breakfast for the next 3 weeks or so. I'm so excited to get this surgery and like you I Just want to get it done so I can lose weight and let my true flyness surface! LOL.

Premier shakes are good. The best one is caramel in my opinion but banana is good too. Almost all chocolate Protein Shakes taste the same to me, so I'm sure it's fairly standard.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
