November 28th for me! I look forward to all those things and flying without worrying the buckle will fit!

Hi and welcome! Yes, the dreaded airplane seat! Also some movie theater seats and booths at restaurants-I can't wait to not have to eat with my stomach lodged between the seat and table!:)

Sunday reflection :
I cannot wait to be a healthier version of myself.
I cannot wait to have more energy.
I cannot wait to walk into a room and not tug on my clothes constantly.
I cannot wait to have options for clothes shopping
I cannot wait to not look at a chair and wonder if it will buckle under my weight.
I cannot wait to get on a plane and not immediately start sweating in fear that the buckle won’t close.
I cannot wait to be proud of my progress.
I cannot wait to be free of this weight that is literally holding me down.

I’ve been working through the process of having this surgery since February- and I cannot wait to get this done !

Happy Sunday 😊

Love this :91_thumbsup:

Hi Everyone.... this Saturday marked the official 30 days out for surgery! I did my final goodbyes to anything junk related? I have continued to increase my walks and lowered my caffeine intake (just a little lol) so now per nutrition I am low carbs and lean protein... I am try to do the timing of what food should look like.... next week I am going to add in shakes for two meals to get ready for the liquid preop prep... how is everyone else... what are your goals for this week?

I too have lowered my caffeine intake a little but won't completely give it up until my pre-op diet. My goals for this week are to focus on chewing my food and not drinking with meals.

Hi guys,

I'm having my sleeve 6th November. I live in Australia. Nurse and single mum to 2 kiddies. I am most looking forward to being able to buy average sized clothes in normal shops and not being grossed out by the reflection in the changeroom mirror!

I'm going on a cruise next week and will start the pre-op diet the day we get home. Looking forward to going on this journey with you all :)

Hello and welcome! We are date twins:) I too am looking forward to buying clothes that aren't from the plus-size section. Have great time on your cruise!

I am also having the surgery on the 21st. Am looking forward to not over eating for the first time in 20+ years.😀

Congrats!! We can be Thanksgiving buddies! I'm looking forward to being able to fit into the skinnier clothes I bought the LAST time I lost a bunch of weight. I bought a whole new wardrobe and I just couldn't maintain it. At least I kept my bigger clothes as a backup. My husband donated all of his, then he gained it all back and had to go buy more stuff.

I just learned today that I will be sleeved on November 7th. This is something that I have silently considered and prayed about for more than a decade. Then I had two different doctors (within the same week) suggest I look into gastric sleeve. That was September 24/25 of this year. Everything has been going so smoothly and I have complete peace about the surgery and confidence in my surgeon. God has cleared the path swiftly and I am so excited for what's in store next. I immediately eliminated my one cup of caffeine each day and am thankful that it went smoothly. I anticipate the most challenging part is going to be not to drink Water while I eat and to eat slow enough. I anticipate that to be the absolute hardest part for me. My life is so busy and I do everything in a hurry....this surgery and lifestyle change will definitely impact more areas than just diet and exercise for me. This will truly force me to slow down and I'm excited about that...just hoping I don't make myself sick while I learn what it's like to not be on fast pace.

And I will be 🙏praying for you that your plans are underwritten By GOD himself. I believe you would not have progressed this far without His Help. I had my RNY September 5th after 3 years and 3 weeks of seeking. And I am thankful to my surgeon, my Hospital, Ohio State University in Columbus 48 miles from where I live, but most of all GOD who loves and sustains me on my daily path. And I want yours to be all you wish and more! your new friend Frustr8😛

Welcome and congrats on getting a date-I will be sleeved on the 6th. I too feel that I am meant to have this surgery and whenever I had any doubts I would trust that whatever was meant to happen would happen and here I am 4 weeks away from the big day:)

I've got a little bit longer than the rest of you since I'm right by Thanksgiving, but I already ordered the sample pack of Syntrax Nectar flavors so I can try them out and see what ones I like the best before my liquid diet, because it's too pricey to get big tubs of each of them! I've already tried some of the Premier Protein and that's a good one, too. Trying to get ready ahead of time so it won't but such a shock. My final pre-op meeting isn't until Nov 9, but my surgery was already approved! Now I'm just waiting on FMLA paperwork to come back in for work.

My preop meeting is on the same date. I am scheduled for November 26th. They sent in my preauthorization last week. I just recieved confirmation today from the insurance company I am approved. SO I am so glad its been something Ive toyed with for years and Now it the time. I have totally had enough of this crap. I do like th Premier Protein clear drinks. I havent tried the shakes yet, have you?

      I'm going to hit my stall now. I can tell, because 1) almost everybody stalls when they start moving on to real foods, in addition to the liquids, and 2) I'm at 302 pounds, lol, and the scale knows I want to see the 2 in the first digit.
      I'm fine. It's not going to freak me out or really even upset me. Honestly, I could stand the reconfiguration of inches that always comes with a stall, for me.
      I'm posting here in between bites of refried beans, which (knock on wood) seem to be going pretty well for me, so far. I'm so happy. Between ricotta (with a little sauce and a little seasoning) and refried beans (with a very small amount of low-fat cheese melted in), I can live without chewable foods for a pretty long time. (I'm also eating yogurt and ricotta cheese.) I do want to upgrade to the ricotta bake, because it has better protein and might cut down the number of protein shakes I need in a day. It's probably a bit more firm than ricotta alone, so I held off at first, but I think it's time, don't you? Plus, my spouse can put it over pasta and enjoy it with me.
      I'm eating 2.5 ounces of ricotta in a serving and maybe that much in beans? (this is my first attempt, but that's how much I served myself) I can eat 4 ounces of Greek yogurt in half an hour, which feels like a lot before the 2 week anniversary of my surgery. But I still haven't really figured out my body's "full" signal. I felt a little sick and stopped eating, one time, which made me think I'd overdone it. Other times, I just take tiny bites, sometimes a few minutes apart, for half an hour. And then I refrigerate or throw out what's left, because that was the guidance the nutritionists gave me. But other people talk about a sore shoulder or something as their signal, and I haven't found that yet.
      I guess it'll come with time and practice.

        Prediction: ACCURATE! I was up .2 this morning. Here's hoping my thighs are smaller after this stall, so I can finally wear smaller pants. (The waists of pants that "fit" are too loose, but the thighs are still tight. And belts are uncomfortable on my incisions.)

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        Don't talk yourself into a stall. They're common, but not everyone has them early on. I honestly haven't had one yet. I've only had 3 "up" weeks in almost 8 months and none of them was from a stall. (One was from vacation, two were recovering from losing 13 lbs in 10 days because I was prescribed too much diuretic and ended up dehydrated in the er ☹️) You're unique, just let it go.

        It is early for you to recognize a "full" signal. Pretty much all the foods you're eating right now are sliders that just pass through your pouch. Other than the refried beans, most of them won't stay long enough to trigger a "fullness" feeling. Don't worry, it will come. You're doing great!

      3. CrankyMagpie

        If it's a stall, it's only in comparison to the ridiculous speed with which I lost during immediate pre- and post-op. I'm still down like half a pound from when I posted this. (Half a pound in four days is slow for this stage of the journey, but it's still good!)

        Thanks for the reassurance! It's good to be told I'm doing well. ❤️

      4. Orchids&Dragons

        Yeah, we love that non-linear weight loss when we have a 4-pound week. Not so much with a 1/2-pound week. I only weigh twice a week (and only write it down on Saturday) in an attempt to keep the insecurity monster at bay 😉

      211!!! Randomly super excited to have read that on the scale this morning! It almost doesn't feel real!

      Haven't hit a stall but this week with only a 2 lbs loss after hitting the gym for 5 days is really getting to me.

        I had a stall for 2 weeks, lost a couple pounds, then started the gym and now I'm stalled again!

      2. GreenTealael

        Think of your gym time not for weightloss but as preplastic surgery. I promise the more you work out (whether you lose fat or gain muscle through it) the better your skin tone, tightness and elasticity will look in the long run... (Learning that now, too late after taking a break from the gym during a recent very active losing phase, I HAVE TO GO BACK)...

        YOU'RE DOING GREAT!!!

    • GreenTealael

      Alright. No more adulting. Burned my nose, broke my espresso maker (officially), stubbed my toe, and cracked my phone screen all before 8am.
      Going back to bed.

        I love my fleece lined tights.... :)

      2. sillykitty

        Hmmm .... tell me more about this?? I'm a Cali girl, but spend a lot of time in colder climates. I like the idea of these!

      3. FluffyChix

        See. I read this ^^^ as, "I'm a Call girl..." and I'm like, well, I bet plenty of call girls would appreciate the thermal effect of fleece lined tights. :D

        Here you go! Trying to wrap my head around these, btw, but in Houston Texas, there are about 2 weeks in February when I would possibly need them. :D

        Ahahaha eyes playing tricks on us!

        They are thicker than regular opaque tights and are just so cozy...

      5. sillykitty

        Ok ... I have some in my Amazon cart .... :)
