Lol... Barr is half of my last name. But yes I’m really excited just the pre-op diet I think is the hardest thing ever. Doc wanted me to start on the 12th but I figured sooner than later would probably be better.

Yep get all your healthy,on! You are going to do so good, in a couple weeks you'll be celebrating and shouting from the rooftops I DID IT! Now you have that lovely[emoji30] liquid diet to contend with. I told another girl this morning to think about of it as getting ready-for-surgery medicine, if it helped. And afterwards you'll be starting on the smooth road to recovery. Cool, isn't it? Makes me hungry for my own RnY! It's going to happen, just don't have a date-maybe MAY? I should know more after the 25th.[emoji13][emoji304]

My surgery is April 25 and I begin my two week liquid diet on Wednesday. This weekend I stocked up on Premier shakes, SoBe Life Water and Soups. Now its time to get my mind right... will need some support from this group!

I bought the premier clear Protein Drink and it’s awesome. Tastes like crystal light tropical punch

I'll look for that for my one day of Clear Liquids the day before surgery. I bought the Proten20 green tea and its not good at all.

It’s great to be able to just share easily with others about what’s happening. I’m having RNY on 23 April. Just had my last pre op appointments and starting soft foods tomorrow. Getting excited that this is actually becoming a reality.

My surgery is on April 16th (less than one week). I had my pre-op appointment today. I am really excited. THe nervousness has subsided for now, I am in the mode of "let's get this over with" but I am sure this weekedn the nervousness will return.

Good luck to everyone!

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
