Mine is Monday 8/27, have to say I am nervous, I keep thinking something is going to go wrong and that it’s just not in the cards for me. This preop diet is killing me but I have lost 14 lbs in 11 days.

I feel exactly the same way. I am having surgery the day after you and I keep saying that im probably going to get hit by a bus or something before then. I have the worse luck ever!

I was the same way. Had my surgery yesterday & did well.

My husband had to go to the ER while I was in surgery for severe abdominal pain. Right now he's waiting to have a CT to see if it is appendicitis. UGH! He's so worried that he won't be able to take care of me if he does.

@ChellNC Glad to hear your doing well, but sorry to hear about the hubby. Hopefully it is something simple and he doesn't have to have surgery.

Be patient. Don't weigh every day if its going to bother you. PIck one day a week and let that be weigh in day. If you still need to step on it every day, don't worry about the weight until weigh in day. You'll do fine.

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
