The first day or so was tough, just getting the routine going and getting used to drinking all of the Water also.


I coach soccer, and Florida is hot. But I probably drink about 160-200 oz of water a day. No problem. But I use a straw. I'm going to miss my straws.

Yeah, that's a lot of water! Much more than what I drink.

I love Tally but I haven't been there in years. I'll be going up this summer though for grad school.

I am having the surgery on March 9. I am very nervous/excited also. I would like to have kept my surgery a little more private but have received a lot of advice from a coworker who is a fellow sleever. So instead of assuming they will keep my confidence I have been pretty open about it. Also my mother-in-law, who can't hold Water, saw my obesity surgery folder. Normally I am very private person so this is a little uncomfortable for me, but I am hoping it will help hold me accountable.

What is everyone doing to prepare for post op? Are you pureeing food and freezing it? I was told to puree approved food and store it in ice cube trays in the freezer- since that's the correct portion size...

Thoughts?

My program doesn't do a puree stage. We go from liquids to a soft solid stage.

Right now I have just prepared for the Optifast diet. I start it on Saturday and do it for 4 weeks until surgery.

You are doing really well! Looks like you have lost almost 100 pounds already.
