I know there are several on this post who said they're surgery is early May, one person said surgery is 4/29 but I can't find it now. Can we please all post our dates again? I want to hear others experiences and also share my own. My surgery is 5/3/18.

I'm 2nd May (8 days to go woohoo!!). As are at least 3 others I've seen posting on these forums, however I'm in Australia so will be a half day ahead of my us buddies. Il try to make a posting ASAP after surgery if I'm up for it.

I'm annoyed that my period was due by yesterday but hasn't started yet as I get really heavy periods with nasty cramping and headaches so I really don't want that hitting while in hospital for 4-5 days. :( I'm guessing the VLCD has thrown it out of whack maybe?

I'm otherwise doing fine. The high Protein VLCD seems to be agreeing with my system as I'm really not feeling hungry before meal times despite only having 600-700 calories a day. As I said in another post, it would seem my body is happy cannibalising itself!

I have to sit down with hubby in the next few days and draw up a detailed schedule for him to keep things running while I'm in hospital (school routines for the kids, dinner plans, managing the Guinea pigs etc)

May 9 for me! Here's my stats:
food funerals: pizza, popcorn, and diet coke.
HW: 268 (5'4")
CW: 264 Hey, if I could lose weight on my own I wouldn't need surgery.
GW: 160, mini goals on the way down 199 and the weight listed on my drivers license. I have lied about it so long I actually don't know what it says.
Like like the Unjury Protein, mixes well with no chalky aftertaste. Unflavored whey does NOT mix well in Soup, but thier pea protein is great in soup. Also getting all of my Vitamins though them bc they are complete and it is the easiest way to do it.
Good luck All! We can do it!

Hey! Our height and weight is practically the same! My surgery is the 2nd, if you want to be buds!

      I am starting to really like physical activity! Just did a 30 minute hi-intensity cycle ride at LA Fitness. Yeah it was tough but it sure feels great afterwards. I feel like a completely new and different person; like the depression is starting to lift and I feel a renewed sense of motivation. I actually feel like getting my performance bicycle out of mothballs. I haven't ridden it in 5 years and right now I am so glad I did not get rid of it. I am going to get it over to the bike shop, tune it up, and get ready to ride. There is an event on August 25th, almost exactly 5 years to the day that I rode my first ever century ride, 100 miles. I marked it on my calendar and the training begins now! I need something to keep me on the straight and narrow, something to focus on. Even if I am the last rider at the finish line, I will be a winner.

        That is so great! I am looking forward to the things that will be so much easier to do this time next year (hopefully) Having something to look forward to amd work towards always makes it easier to get through the bad days. Good luck with your training, I'm sure u will be successful at it 😁

        I truly think success is a mindset and I am now setting my mind to the prize .... Shore Fire, baby!!!

      When I got dressed this morning, I realized I was wrong about the size of the jeans I got at Walmart the other day. They're not 26/28s; they're 24/26s! Which is even better, but also ridiculous because a pair of size 26 pants from the same brand were too small. The jeans have stretch, though, and the pants did not.

      As of last Friday, I dropped back into Onderland!!! Can't believe it! Last time my weight started with a one was at least 10-15yrs ago. Pic from this Saturday with my hubby and his mom at our house warming party. Other pic is me at my heaviest last summer. The transformation blows me away! As a reward for hitting this big milestone, I'll be signing up for a horseback trail ride - the first one I've been able to do in over a decade due to weight restrictions. I'm sooo excited!! I'm also training for my first half marathon - ran my first 10k on Sunday  It's incredible what I'm able to do now, and everyday I'm thankful for this amazing tool that is helping me realize some big dreams.

      So, getting finances in order, I managed to sell my 2016 Toyota Avalon. It was a beautiful car, of which surprisingly, I’m doing fine without and I actually don’t miss it; and also of which resulted in having a one-vehicle household, which resulted in me HAVING to walk 2.2 miles everyday 5x a week to get my daughter to school. I’m actually quite glad, I’m feeling better/stronger again, and I dropped almost $20,000 of debt. WIN-WIN!

        Awesome sauce!!!

      2. FluffyChix

        Yay!!! That's incredible on so many levels! Yay you! (You wouldn't have been able to do it if you didn't have the surgery and re-birth!"

        Maybe you should look at practicing your nutrition stuff from home?

        Car debt is the bane of my existence. Wont do it. And I love Toyota...I drive (and LOVE) my 2015 Camry...so I know how hard that was. Absolutely awesome you're getting the walking in, instead. Love that so much! Also teaches good habits to the kiddo....which is brilliant.

        Speaking of kiddo and cars..I've spent the last three months combing the web for a used car for my daughter. She has a summer job lined up here and needs a car to get to various labs and sample sites....and I won't let her go into more debt. (she has minimal student loans and will graduate next year with her microbiology degree)

        I found her a 2008 Malibu from Tennessee, clean inside and out...with just barely 100K on it...and I'm feeling incredibly accomplished. $3000, we paid cash :) CarFax is clean, mechanic said it was in great shape and she should get a few years out of it yet. Very common car with cheap parts if repairs are needed in the future. Previous owner did a valve job and replaced timing chain, and all maintenance was done at dealership. Brand new tires and brakes.

        It's parked in our driveway as we speak. Runs and sounds like brand new.

        I can't wait to see her face:)

        Well that's awesome! Keep up the good, positive work. :-)

      5. Newme17

        Lol. Cute...I like that “awesome sauce!” @Sleeve1stFitNext!

        @FluffyChix there’s so much that I probably wouldn’t have done if I didn’t have this surgery! I’m still so glad I did too. I seem to work better when being “forced” in to situations. Lol

        @Creekimp13, we’re Toyota lovers here. A former Avalon, and two former Tundras...currently on our third Tundra...and have always had a car payment! Ugh! We’re doing this Dave Ramsey program that’s making a lot of sense to us and so there went the Avalon. Also in the process of maybe getting a cash car...speaking of which, you were hugely blessed for what you found! Wow! That’s the kind of deal I want. I told the hubby not to buy one yet though, I’m enjoying the walks and the time with my kids walking. Definitely good habits being taught. 😊

        @Mattymatt thanks hon! Its hard to be in the dumps when there’s a win on both sides! Yay!!!
