Hi I'm bringing this out in case anybody has a date this far off. The way my life is recently I might be right there with you.

Close! Ill submit to insurance in June after my final doctors appointment. The surgeon’s office said I’d be looking at a July surgery date.

My surgeon will submit my paperwork after my final nutrition appointment in May so they say it’s looking like a June bypass date for me. If I could get a late May surgery date I’d be even happier. That’s if insurance approves. Good luck everyone!

I should be submitting all my paperwork in early April but I want a June surgery date because I work at a school. I won't need to take time off and I'll have the whole summer to adjust.

Good news my friends. I received a call from OSU Bariatrics this afternoon. I have a firm 2 hour appointment with their staff psychologist Dr Kramer Wednesday April 28th. I am tearful as I write this for my dreams may not be in vain, my hopes will not be trampled underfoot. underfoot. My journey may still have A bright brilliant culmination. And from the ashes I will rise victorious!

So this means you will have a possible June date? If so that is awesome! Congrats!

All I have left are 3 classes that I'll be doing on Tues at my surgeons office and one more visit to the psychologist. I did the initial interview but I have to do a test also and insurance has to approve it. Once that's done it's all being submitted to insurance. Still hoping for June!

      Okay, I finally took another picture of myself. I don't see much change in my appearance but I realize we don't always see ourselves realistically! So here it is:

      I'm struggling. I've been stalled now for a couple weeks. I haven't really been tracking my food like I should be. I haven't been to the gym. Both things I know are bad. I logged my food for today and I'm sitting right around 1,200 calories and 115 grams of protein. 60 carbs. I'm not sure if I should be aiming for less calories at this point. Hmmm.... well. I will def be hitting the gym next week, hard. I'd say this week, but I'm swamped with stuff after work everyday. It's just not feasible. I have been staying extremely active though. Also, cutting out all fruit this week. Here's a pic from this past weekend!

        thank you! All and all I feel great, I just know that I should still be loosing and when I remember, "hey! you aren't done yet!" then I get down on myself.

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        Honestly, Ash! You are young, pretty and in love! What is there to be down about?

      3. allwet

        Just ride this stall out AshAsh your numbers are fine. Do try to track more often but other than that just keep the faith it will break.

      4. KimTriesRNY

        You’ve lost a lot in a short amount of time. A stall is bound to happen sooner or later. Get back to tracking as a priority! You look great, and more progress will follow. It’s not a sprint with over a hundred pounds to lose, we have to learn to accept our bodies will take a break every now and then.

      5. Sleeved36

        Don't be so hard on yourself. Life happens and you have to deal with life. Even if you don't make it to the gym, go for a little walk in the evening. It will help your stress level and not make you feel bad about skipping the gym.

        You have made amazing progress and look great!

        Stalls are the worst and it is hard to be patient. The scale will keep moving just keep going!

       I just started the process for the gastric sleeve. A lot of requirements to complete within the six months. I’m looking for a good website  that can give me an idea of how I should eat during these months beforehand.  Haven’t received that information from the nutritionist yet that won’t be till next month. Thank you for your time.

        cant give you web site but the food is easy. start cutting the sugar. start cutting the simple carbs. Increase your veggie intake. Learn to love water (lol)

        you will get a specific pre op diet later depending on program, huge variation from surgeon to surgeon.

        depending on your food addictions, and you will be finding you do have them, parts of this can be harder than others.

        i stopped the sugary sweets easy but the bread nearly killed me (jk)

        good luck and grats on getting started.

      NSV today. I have been wearing my size 26 jeans which have been getting roomy. So today I decided to try on my size 24 Lane Bryant jeans and see if I could get into them. Not only can I get into them, they are also loose. That made me feel super happy this morning. Weight is still 243 but the inches are definitely moving.

        Awesome! Congrats! You'll be out of the 20's in no time!

      Tried a few bites of pasta (protein-enriched penne) tonight. No foamies or anything, but didn't sit well. I'm sad about it, but at least now I know and can move on to trying other things, maybe revisit it when I'm further out.
