After a long and hard fight to get approval for my Bypass - it finally got approved and am booked in for surgery on the 1st of October.

The nerves are kicking in already and have been a ball of emotions today! Now begins the next month of a diet to ensure I am in better shape for it.

I keep asking myself am I doing the right thing, I know I am as I am currently on a horrible road and if I keep going down the road I am going, it's not going to end well!

Please tell me I am doing the right thing, and that you have all felt similar emotions!

Thanks@Frustr8 ... Maybe they won't. Who knows... I just know I am going through the motions today and I am sure I will be for the next few weeks. Everyone seems to be doing so well post surgery. I suppose I am just second guessing myself. Your op is approaching soon enough isn't it?

I went though everything and was approved about 5 years ago. Something told me it wasn’t for me. I cancelled and tried for a few years on my own. Now I’m scheduled for Sept 7. I’m getting nervous and having doubts, but I know as I get older it’s way harder to lose weight and I’m starting to see my health affected. This is the right time for me.

Hey. I am set for October 15. Been a big girl all my life and dealt with it. Health concerns are starting and weight loss had always been a huge struggle. Taking the time to do something for me. Praying for good outcomes. Nervous and excited.

I reckon we sound like we are in the same boat. Nervous for surgery and the initial recovery... But excited to see what happens and how things change post recovery. Congrats on making the decision to do this. It's been the most difficult choice of my life.. But hopefully the most worthwhile to get my life back. X

Is anyone nervous or struggling with their breakup with food...? Knowing they'll never be able to eat their favourite foods? 😕

I'm struggling with the first day of liquid diet hahaha. My nutrionist told me that eventually I'd be able to have those foods again in moderation and in way smaller servings. That's a bit motivating. Right now I just need to get through these 2 damn weeks. Good luck!!!

[mention=349060]SarcasticJopanda[/mention] ... bread is my enemy and my dietian told me thats a big no no.
That's one of my weaknesses too :( . I'm confident that pre and postop diets will help me curve that craving. A lot of stuff that is made of bread is being made with other stuff now. Like cauliflower pizza crust. I've never tried it but it's better to have a healthier alternative than nothing. I think we'll survive.

      12/12I 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 well five days ago 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 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy

      The sad dejected truth that you are not the same size in a plush padded vs. Lacy unlined bra. And should have known it. Sigh.

        Guess the new bra/panty set was a bust?

        I see what you did there!

        Also, boobs are dumb. I'm pretty sure I'll be tucking mine iento my socks in a few months!

      3. GreenTealael

        I see what you did lol

        They still kinda work but only by accident 😓, I couldn't find my exact size so I decided to play around with band/cup manipulation. But now I know padded bras may be adding a full cup size I don't own...

        I've been counting on that for years!

      I went to my 4th NUT appointment this week and I was absolutely surprised that I had actually lost 9 pounds from my last appointment.  I can get a bit obsessive when it comes to scale use so I've decided to only do pre-op weigh-ins at my monthly appointments.  It saves me a lot of anxiety, I think. 
      I actually was prepared to go to the appointment with excuses on why i gained, so this was a big win.  I didn't actually add much activity to my routine, the only thing I changed was having protein shakes every morning instead of just weekdays.  I really thought my extracuricular snacking activities were going to cause an issue, but I'm not going to let that make feel like it's ok to snack late or keep eating cheese non-stop.   Also probably helps that I had the stomach bug a couple days last week.  I think my organs liquified and came out....yuck...

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

        Girl, that stall will break. Give your body a minute to realize what's happening and catch up with itself...it'll kick back in gear! 💓
