Hi everyone. I am new to the site. I am still in pre-op with 1 more appointment to go. I am so excited yet nervous. I am open to any tips on how to succeed in this weight loss journey. I did loose 45lbs alone, so I know I can kick behind post op. God bless you all

So where are you located and where will you have your surgery?
I am in Central Ohio, will have my surgery in July(i think) at the Ohio State University- Wexner Medical Center in Columbus,my state capital 48 miles to the SW. And I will be turning into a Kangaroo, our inside RnY bypass joke, for all kangaroos have pouches and after surgery we do too! I am excited for my REBIRTHDAY to occur!

Good morning Frustr8. I’m from Atlanta, Ga and I’ll be having my surgery at Wellstar Bariatric at Kennestone. I’m having the gastric sleeve done. Lmbo at the pouch joke. We will all have pouches I am guessing lol.

So you are a bono fide Georgia peach. Georgia always seems like Sleepy Time Down South. which,i quite a miss-nomer because Atlanta has become a very happening place. Seems like every,time I turn around. people are flying through Hartsfield-Jackson on their way to somewhere else.😝

Yes indeed @frustr8, born and raised. Lmbo!!! Yes, I am one of the thousands of people flying to go somewhere else 🤣. Some locations are sleepy, boring and slow but I’m right off I-20 and there’s nothing sleepy in this side however, I do wish at times 🤣

What we named is some background music for your surgery.🏥 How about. Gladys Knight and the Pips singing "It's Sleevy Time Down South" as they roll you through those,Magic Doors.😷--🚑--😷

I made sure my emotional issues with food were taken care of, for me this is the most important. I dont crave food after the surgery, and Im never hungry. With the blessing of my dietician I only focus on Water and Protein (10weeks post op) and the focus ends there. I have been obsessive about food since I can remember, so for me it was important to start seeing at fuel instead of that emotional crutch. Good luck on your journey! 😊

@Sallymarina70 I was was an emotional eater as well. My main concern is “How” am I goin to get in my Protein and Water intake if my pouch is small. How did/are you getting your protein in?

Yoghurts with high Protein, shakes, chickpeas and most dairy products is where i get most of my protein. smoothies with dairy products, fruit, juice and flavourless Protein Powder is both hydrating and a good source of protein. I drink flavoured Water, on the days I dont I often fall short on my daily target. 😊

@sallymarina70 thank you. I purchased tons of flavorless Protein and Protein Shakes. The unflavored protein is going in every single thing
