So I think we all know we are here to lose weight and begin this journey... for me I need to be healthy again, but what are you looking forward to the most... I keep talking about being active again with my husband and things I look forward to doing with my daughter but really deep down no joke, I will be excited to tie my shoes without feeling like I am going to roll forward and pass out... how about you guys what is that one thing that really keeps you determined? I know the hard work we have been doing to get to this point it is with in reach and I am so so so excited and ready!

I can not wait until I can cross my legs like a lady and feel comfortable.

Hi I am new to the forums. But just got approved for my sleeve on Nov 5th. Would love to join conversation with other November sleevers!

Hi! There are a few of us early in the month so we can all prep together!

I just want to feel better and have more energy and confidence when I walk into a room!

I agree I am so used to trying to hide when I walk in a room, but so clumsy I usually trip walking in... but it would be refreshing to feel that confidence of I am here!

I just want to feel healthy. And not feel ‘restricted’ all the time. And also I really want to be able to ride a roller coaster with my son without having to worry if I will fit in the seat!

I hear you about bending over to tie shoes and also being more active and having energy to do things with my husband and daughter. That is the one thing that keeps me determined-I am doing this so I can be around longer to grow old with my husband and be there as long as I can for my daughter

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

        I am sorry to hear you are struggling. Do what you need to do to stay healthy mentally and physically. I hope you can get to the other side of your depression. Hang in there.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.
