I have mine on August 13th! ahhh I am excited but a little nervous. What is everyone doing to prepare?
I am thinking I will buy an assortment of like Protein Drinks and shakes and Protein water....I plan to eat really well and go ahead and get in the habit of going to the gym a few days a week. I have kind of been eating and drinking whatever I wanted the last couple weeks, but am ready to go ahead and move into this healthy lifestyle :)

I have vacation in 2 weeks so I am going to live up my eating and drinking on vacation then switch to practice mode pre-surgery. I am sad to not have wine for a year :(.. but all in all will be worth it!

I’m Aug 13th. I have vacation in 1.5 days! I also plan on being lax about food during that week and then hitting my healthy diet hard when I return.

I have several family events coming up before surgery and a couple of restaurants that I want to say goodbye to. For at least a year.

Hello Everybody!

Just joined today after having trolled the site this week!

My sleeve surgery is scheduled for Aug 16th and I am so very excited to get this done! I have a high tolerance for pain, but for some reason am feeling like a chicken when I think about the potential pain to come from this surgery! I think it is just nerves and I'll be fine!

I do have a question-do you need someone to be with you your first night home?

      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
