I'm July 24th. It seems forever away and I'm starting to panic. I've fought myself in the "I better eat this now while I still can" trap. Need to get my head in the right space over the next few weeks!

Welcome to Ambivalent Acres, I'm Frustr8, your friendly doorwoman. Would you like one of our jackets? They are a mottled indiscriminate shade because we're not sure what color that they not be! I am seeking and reseeking Bariatric Surgery since August 2015. I probably was elected by acclamation to my position while,i was in the powder Room, but it is the highest elective office I ever shall achieve. Come,in, sit down on one of our chairs with the wobbly legs and have a wait. You can have my jacket and position if my surgery comes true in July 2018 like program#2 has promised. Until then we all keep each,other company. Okay?😩

My auth is for June 28 to July 14th, but has not been approved yet. Ugh, I'm so tired of waiting. I've been working on this since October! I'm also to the point of tired of trying. Like my motivation is leaving. Haha. But I'm trying to hold on, I'm so close!

There was a line from,an old-timely poem--
The mills of the Gods grind fine but they grind exceedingly slow
I told relative sharing this gem with me- I am not a sack of flour I am a people.
Suspect that was to tell me to relax and be patient, well I was born without patience and very hungry . Not,much changed in my life since!

Okay officially been given my date today...drum roll....Friday 27th July at St Peter's hospital , Surrey, UK. Still waiting to hear from pre op. So I travel to LA next week for my son's 18th Birthday (been planning that for three years) then I fly back for three days and then head to Spain to see my parents. Return home for three days and then in hospital for the op.

Also have to do a three week liver shrinkage diet before hand!! PS not telling anyone about my op, I have just said I am having my gall bladder out!

This is going to be the busiest July of my life and probably the most life changing. Feeling completely overwhelmed by everything at the moment and giving myself panic attacks, genuine ones not just saying that. Having a hideous menopause with mega hot flushes.

Phew, is that too much information?!

      I'm going to hit my stall now. I can tell, because 1) almost everybody stalls when they start moving on to real foods, in addition to the liquids, and 2) I'm at 302 pounds, lol, and the scale knows I want to see the 2 in the first digit.
      I'm fine. It's not going to freak me out or really even upset me. Honestly, I could stand the reconfiguration of inches that always comes with a stall, for me.
      I'm posting here in between bites of refried beans, which (knock on wood) seem to be going pretty well for me, so far. I'm so happy. Between ricotta (with a little sauce and a little seasoning) and refried beans (with a very small amount of low-fat cheese melted in), I can live without chewable foods for a pretty long time. (I'm also eating yogurt and ricotta cheese.) I do want to upgrade to the ricotta bake, because it has better protein and might cut down the number of protein shakes I need in a day. It's probably a bit more firm than ricotta alone, so I held off at first, but I think it's time, don't you? Plus, my spouse can put it over pasta and enjoy it with me.
      I'm eating 2.5 ounces of ricotta in a serving and maybe that much in beans? (this is my first attempt, but that's how much I served myself) I can eat 4 ounces of Greek yogurt in half an hour, which feels like a lot before the 2 week anniversary of my surgery. But I still haven't really figured out my body's "full" signal. I felt a little sick and stopped eating, one time, which made me think I'd overdone it. Other times, I just take tiny bites, sometimes a few minutes apart, for half an hour. And then I refrigerate or throw out what's left, because that was the guidance the nutritionists gave me. But other people talk about a sore shoulder or something as their signal, and I haven't found that yet.
      I guess it'll come with time and practice.

        Prediction: ACCURATE! I was up .2 this morning. Here's hoping my thighs are smaller after this stall, so I can finally wear smaller pants. (The waists of pants that "fit" are too loose, but the thighs are still tight. And belts are uncomfortable on my incisions.)

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        Don't talk yourself into a stall. They're common, but not everyone has them early on. I honestly haven't had one yet. I've only had 3 "up" weeks in almost 8 months and none of them was from a stall. (One was from vacation, two were recovering from losing 13 lbs in 10 days because I was prescribed too much diuretic and ended up dehydrated in the er ☹️) You're unique, just let it go.

        It is early for you to recognize a "full" signal. Pretty much all the foods you're eating right now are sliders that just pass through your pouch. Other than the refried beans, most of them won't stay long enough to trigger a "fullness" feeling. Don't worry, it will come. You're doing great!

      3. CrankyMagpie

        If it's a stall, it's only in comparison to the ridiculous speed with which I lost during immediate pre- and post-op. I'm still down like half a pound from when I posted this. (Half a pound in four days is slow for this stage of the journey, but it's still good!)

        Thanks for the reassurance! It's good to be told I'm doing well. ❤️

      4. Orchids&Dragons

        Yeah, we love that non-linear weight loss when we have a 4-pound week. Not so much with a 1/2-pound week. I only weigh twice a week (and only write it down on Saturday) in an attempt to keep the insecurity monster at bay 😉

      211!!! Randomly super excited to have read that on the scale this morning! It almost doesn't feel real!

      Haven't hit a stall but this week with only a 2 lbs loss after hitting the gym for 5 days is really getting to me.

        I had a stall for 2 weeks, lost a couple pounds, then started the gym and now I'm stalled again!

      2. GreenTealael

        Think of your gym time not for weightloss but as preplastic surgery. I promise the more you work out (whether you lose fat or gain muscle through it) the better your skin tone, tightness and elasticity will look in the long run... (Learning that now, too late after taking a break from the gym during a recent very active losing phase, I HAVE TO GO BACK)...

        YOU'RE DOING GREAT!!!
