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.

      Today I had my first post surgery update. I haven't eaten anything other than the occasional popsicle and my daily protein shakes in 2 weeks. I have lost 30lbs in those 2 weeks. The doctor is happy. I am starting to see changes I have no more swelling in my legs after sitting at my work desk all day. I don't get to eat an egg till next week. I have my total carb and protein counts so when I can start eating I know how much I can have. My surgeon / doctor has been great thru this whole process. He listens and gives good information about what to expect and what I should be doing. He has an amazing team here in Boise. I am glad I went with him to do this life changing process.

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.
