I just left my surgeon's office. I am officially scheduled for December 4th!!! I'm so excited. I've decided to go with the bypass and finally feel confident with my decision because I struggled between the sleeve vs. bypass. wishing you an amazing journey. Happy Holidays to us!

That is awesome! I’m waiting on insurance to approve and it’s nerve-wracking! Do you have to do the clear liquid diet 2 weeks prior? If so, you’ll be starting that during Thanksgiving right? That sucks!

I'm December 10th! I have my pre-op day long appointment on the 15th so I'll find out about the liquid diet then, but most likely have to do two weeks starting the monday after Thanksgiving. We're in this together! :)

Well 3 Big10, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, as soon as you find out where Honeybee winged in from, you will have a nice grouping. FYI my birthday is December 26, and my Wedding Anniversary was December 9th, I have been widowed 6 and a half years, not that anyone asked. I will be following you December Snowballs with great interest, I had a RnY 9 weeks ago and am back at OSU awaiting a return endiscopy, my 3rd. I have a stricture of my stoma they just can't get stretched so I can get off my liquid diet. No worries , it is relatively rare, but I still will never regret surgery, I have lost 60+ pounds since July 31st, something else wonderful to life, and as the Fat Caccoon cracks maybe the outside world will see the real Frustr8 bursting free. I always knew I was cute, smart, worthwhile to know but the outside 🌎 they see Fat and deprecate us all. Covers can be so blotched, torn &worn, open the Book Of Me, I am well worth the Read!

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

        Losing a pet is terrible, and it's OK to be sad. ❤️

        Taking care of yourself is also OK--better than OK!--and if you're offering to cook, that means your sister doesn't have to cook or stress, which is kind of what she was after, anyway? So you don't need to feel bad about this.

        I can definitely imagine going to a buffet again, even though I don't eat much, but we're talking, like $10 Indian lunch buffet, not $65 (holy crap) Thanksgiving buffet! And I'll probably always favor non-buffets, since not eating part of my meal immediately just means I get to enjoy it later on (or my spouse does). It feels like less pressure, or something.

        Anyway, I'm babbling. I think you're doing the right thing, here. I hope your sister is cool about it.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
