I’m on the 14th, so here we go! The “Oreos” diet is harder than I thought it would be.
Ugh! Stupid spellcheck! The PreOp diet! [emoji23]

I just went looking for the "Oreos" diet! Thought I was missing out [emoji16][emoji23]🤣[emoji2]

Yay for you! So happy for you! I am so worried about what i will feel like waking up; my surgery is today. I leave for the hosptial in an hour.
So happy you are feeling well! Your post eased my concerns!
All the best to you and your recovery!


hi Mary,
Waking up was a major fear of mine too, and it was no big deal! They asked my pain level, medicated me accordingly then called my Fiancee back to be with me.
It felt like seconds had passed since they’d wheeled me into the OR, and I was in a little bit of pain but I described it as a 4!!! They put me on a morphine drip and I’ve been pushing it often. They also out a binder around my stomach and that is helped with the pain and support as well.

You will be fine! Please let me know how you are doing and if you have any other questions. I’ll be thinking of you. You’ve really really got this!

Hi All!

I was sleeved today, about 6 hours ago. I’m feeling pretty great, I don’t feel like an elephant is sitting on me, or a ton of gas pain. I just sipped Water for the first time and it didn’t hurt at all!

So happy you're doing well and the surgery part is over. I'm leaving for the hospital soon but surgery isn't scheduled till about 6 hours from now. I'll update as soon as I can.

I’m so glad that surgeries are going well. My thoughts are with those with surgeries today.

The pre-op diet is getting easier but I’m getting more anxious as we get closer to the 14th.

I'm still mostly doing good, but did throw up a little while ago after swallowing some pain meds :( that hurt. Boo. Managed to not lose the meds though. 11pm here so going to sleep soon.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to be sleeved on May 1st as my insurance chose to deny the day before. They want me to do another three months, noting that I have followed the program and lost weight prior. So it looks like I'll be in July/September.

Good luck and good job everyone!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
