They say that you regret the things you don't do more than the stuff you do. I'm 44 and have been overweight my whole adult life and dangerously obese for almost 20 years. It's time.

1:30pm tomorrow! I’m hangry, a bit scared, but mostly excited that my journey that began in February is now about to reach the first big stop-my surgery. Tomorrow when I wake after surgery, I begin a new phase of my life. One where I own my health, and continue to grow (or more accurately shrink) into a healthier version of myself.

I'm set for Nov. 15th for surgery- I've started panicking a bit thinking about the liquid diet, etc. I've been reading as much information as I can trying to prepare!!
Yesturday was my last for Clear Liquids. I was panicking too. I did Water only the first 2 days, when I got home, I had Isopure tea and Unjury chicken broth as well as sugar free popsicles and Jello. I did have problems getting all the Protein in 1st day home but since then it has been smooth sailing. La weight loss has a cappaccino powder to add to decaf coffee if that is your thing. I luckily had no problems with food temps but be careful with hot or cold at first. Today, I am looking forward to my homemade chicken Soup stained and Farina!

My surgery is Nov 1st. Starting the month strong.
I will be starting my soft food phase thanksgiving day technically. I'm a bit worried about what healthy food options there will be for me th at I'm actually able to eat. I may just put off eating so ft foods for a few extra days so I'm not tempted. Is thanksgiving and Christmas a concern for anyone else?
How are people monitoring their progress? I created a spreadsheet of various body measurements, weight, body fat, bmi that I plan on filling out weekly, I started a week before surgery. As well as weekly pictures.

What's everyone's stat?
Had mine the first. My mother does Thanksgiving this year. It is my first puree day and first night back to work. I plan on making my own food and bringing it. We also have Friends-giving on Friday, so everyone's left overs. I will also bring my own. Biggest worry is the deserts. I love, love pumpkin pie lol. Husbands class reunion is the next night so no eating or drinking, just socializing for that one.

Well the morning of mine my test came out positive. So then they had to take a blood test. They had my friends that came with me rolling. [emoji3] [emoji3] [emoji3] [emoji3] It was a good distraction. Then it came back negative [emoji3]. Thank God we were good to go.

      2 weeks and 6 days to go before I have my VSG surgery.  I am so EXCITED!  I thought that my nerves would be all over the place by now, but I am still cool as a cucumber.

      I'm just over 3 months into my 6 month pre-op diet plan and I feel like giving up.  Not because of the food, but because life is hard right now.  
      Work has become intolerable due to the amount of stress that I cannot control, but inevitably know will cause major issues for me down the road.  Long story short it's one of those "I tried to tell you this was going to happen things" that nobody reacted to because of budget constraints, but in the end there's going to be a "fall man" for what happens and it will be me, despite my preventative warnings.
      My boss is on my side, in theory, but when it comes down to protecting his own hide, I feel like he would sacrifice me to save himself.
      Also, I just had to cancel my holiday vacation due to staffing issues in my department, so now my personal life is going to be affected by my work issues.
      At this point, I'm just venting.  I realize that there are people out there much less fortunate than myself, but it sucks all the same.  I feel like everytime I get close to being happy with life, it comes and gives me a boot in the ass for a reality check.
      Happy Thanksgiving!

      My weight will JUST NOT BUDGE. I'm annoyed. This stall sucks. Can stress alone trigger a stall? I'm 237, have been for...oh 10 days now. I'm doing everything else I need to, but am more stressed than I have been.

        You will stall. I’ve had stalls for over three weeks at a time. The lower you get, the longer it will take to lose the pounds. Just keep to the program, it will come off. It’s discouraging but everyone goes through it! 🤗

      I am under 200 this morning! It's been a loooooong time ... And doesn't feel quite real. I'm not sure how to make it feel real except stare at the scale until my brain accepts it.

        I have 14 more pounds before I reach that milestone, too. I've lost 80lbs so far since June.

        So happy for you, Leia. I haven't looked up your goal weight yet. Do you have any other intermittent milestone goals after this one? I haven't figured out any in particular for myself, but I know I want to always keep myself motivated to keep working toward some goal.

      Woohoo!!!
      I had my VSG surgery on Thursday, 11/15...
      Some of the things I've learned in the last couple days:
      Applesauce is the devils food. (It's the only thing that's made me vomit so far).
      Getting enough fluid/protein in is a challenge... Any tips?
      (I'm vegetarian, so bone broth is out...)

      Walking has always been my favorite form of exercise, short of swimming, but it is now a necessity... get that gas OUT!

      & I LOVE nurses!! I was in intense pain post-op & the nurses were amazing.. they were amazing throughout my short stay.
      (& they are the only people on the planet that can tell you: "I can hear your intestines moving!" & make it sound like: "& the Oscar goes to...") :D

      Thanks to everyone on here who has helped get this journey started.
      I'm incredibly excited for the next phases moving forward! :)
