Maybe that rotten little kid that walked up to me and asked Are you fat or just a Lady? maybe with a shape again he won't be confused. I really wanted to tell him--- Go PLAY in traffic Junior--- but it wouldn't be very nice of me!

Dang, I just found out that due to an issue with the OR, my surgery is being pushed back a week. I was already well into my liquid diet phase 😩 Oh well, still on its way, I just have to wait a little longer. My new surgery date is Nov. 13th. On the plus side, my insurance already approved my VSG, and I only needed to pay $300 for the whole thing. So I'm definitely feeling relieved.

I'm scheduled for November 8th. I'm also a teacher, and scared of the recovery because our jobs are so demanding. Guess I'll find out soon.

Anyone else stall out on loosing weight on the liquid diet? I am on day 9 today and haven't lost much of anything for the last 3 days. I lost 11 lbs really fast when I started liquids, but then haven't really lost anything for a few days. Just wondering if that is normal.

Either way I am excited I made it this far, liquid diet was the scariest part for me, and I am down to my last 2 days with surgery scheduled for Monday 11/5. Getting so close!

Starting to think about what I need to take to the hospital for surgery and after? I hadn’t really thought about it yet. Any suggestions on what we need to have there?

T- minus 5 days until surgery for me! I’m down about 8 lbs from the pre-op diet which is helping me with the reassurance I need to keep going.

Im curious, how long is everyone going to be out of works? I’m anticipating at least a week which is what the surgeon said, but the office laughed and staff seemed to think more.

I'm planning on two full weeks after and see how I feel after that. My friend just had it done in September and took two weeks and she was still very exhausted and trying to get her meals on track. I'll be on a 10 pound weight restriction for a month, so if there is any heavy lifting at your work you either can't go back or can't do those activities for a while. My date is set for Nov 21. I had to lose 25 lbs and as of yesterday I'm down 57 since June!

Just got my date for Nov 19; it’s starting to get real now. Ordered Protein Water from Amazon. Stocked up on broth and Jello. Ultrasound of the gall bladder and upper endoscopy and pre/op this week. Start diet next. Yeah!
