Did you find the link to thread @kakatlady612 is talking about? I went to 4 of the forums to find it? :(

Sweetie you gotta hook me up with the links. :-/

You go to that post your talking about. Go up to the address bar that tells you where you're at and use your mouse.

Right click 1 time and hold the button down. You'll see a drop down menu.

Run the mouse down until it highlights the "Copy" line. Left click once on that line to select it.

Then you come back here and click on a reply window and click 1 time in the empty window.

Right click again and run the mouse down to highlight "Paste" line. Left click once on that line to select "Paste".

If you did it right, you will see an underlined address within the window. Now hit the return or Enter button to get off of that line and you've created a link. (There are other ways to do it, but this is your first lesson and the easiest.)

I just want to give a 5 o'clock somewhere update to all you hosers sittin' there in your private Idaho suckin' back a brewski.

Today is VASTLY different from the 3 previous days. I'm pretty sure I'm going to live and I just had a contraband SF Dr. Diet Pepper (ie Diet Dr. Peppy). I don't usually have caffeine or sugar free drinks, but I'm like what the hell! I'll run with scissors!

And I'm so excited! I got my box of Celebrate Vitamins. I got a variety pack to try out on the 3-in-1 powder Vitamin mix. I just mixed up the orange citrus flavor and good golly Miss Molly. It's totes worth it! So damn good. Can't wait to try the other ones later. There's a very faint bitterness (emphasis on very) and it's damn sweet, so I will definitely mix it with more Water. But I think that dog will hunt! Huuuuurrrrraaaaahhhhh!

Day 4 is done! Slamma jamma! For the most part it was an easy peasy day. Not a lot of hunger until last night. Hunger got ahead of me and I just had to white knuckle it and put myself to bed early-ish. And this morning I woke up hungry. So it's too early to tell if Day 5 is gonna suck or not. I can tell you that with each day that passes, it gets more and more difficult to cook for Mr. F. LOL. Big wah huh? LOL.

I think when it comes time for me to do the liquid diet, I might try to make a bunch of freezer meals for my hubby and the kids... and then head out for a walk during dinner. Cooking for them is going to be a challenge for sure.

Yeah, this is so true. Making leftovers for meals is DEF easier. That's what I'm doing for Mr. F. I made a bunch of different meats, portioned them and froze them (i.e. pot roast, grilled chicken cut into chunks and strips, grilled fajita meat cut into strips, hamburger base with hamburger onion, peppers, spices, chili, Soups, etc.) Then I really only have to make the fresh veggie and/or salad of some kind. But still, I am interacting with food and smells, so it does make it easier thank cooking but less easy than shear avoidance. I do like your idea of going for a walk during the meal! Great idea girlie!

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
