October 2018 Sleevers



Recommended Posts

How long is everyone’s preop diet? My dr only requires 1 week of liquids for preop. I start that oct 1.
I have to do a 2 week liver shrinking diet for pre-op. Thankful I'm not doing liquid only diet.

Soooooo I posted before and my surgery was supposed to be 10/15. My doctors office called me today and asked if I wanted to push it up to 10/1....UMMMM yes!!!! But I thought I would have time to mentally prepare for the two week pre op liquid diet. Nope....starting tomorrow pray for me!!!!!
I'd love it my doctor's office called and asked if I wanted to move my date up!! The waiting is the worst!

That's a problem November. is going to have. Nobody has started a November 2018 one, I dont,if they plan to,piggyback on 2017's or establish their own÷🌻
I’m a November friend... but it’s a little far out to start a thread. Most of us are just going through the final weigh-in, insurance rig-a-ma-ro... we will be there with all of you super soon!!! 😃

October 15th seems to be a popular date! :778_heartbeat: My date as well. My 2 week pre-op diet starts on Monday October 1st!!! I have already cut back on the caffeine and carbonation so it won't be such a shock. I really like the premiere Protein Shakes, so I bought a case of each flavor from Sam's Club. I also found their clear Protein Drinks to be tasty as well. The flavor is a tad bit strong for my taste, so I have to dilute it. I'm excited to start my pre op diet because that means this is actually happening! It has been almost a year and a half since my first appointment with my bariatric surgeon, and now I'm down to less than a month before surgery!! SOOOOO READDDYYYY!!!!!

mine is October 1st and I am super excited and worried at the same time. I have 1199 insurance and my doctor's office still has no approval on file. I reached out but haven't heard anything yet

I finally got my surgery date yesterday. I am having the gastric bypass on Oct. 15th. After I got the date, I instantly felt sick to my stomach....which I knew it was only my nerves..lol... I am so excited. I started the process last October, got approved for the sleeve August 9th. Then my Dr recommended the bypass due to GERD... Got the approval for the bypass on Sept 17th. I go for a protesting appt and dietician appt on Oct 2nd.

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

      Think I am hitting a stall-ish period. Weight loss is def slowing and I need a kickstart to get it going again....any suggestions?

      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
