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!

      Ok , you can all have a laugh at my expense today.
      As a kid i never cared for PB&J i would eat one if it was all that was available but i always preferred a tuna sandwich.
      The other day my daughter comes over with an All Natural Peanut Butter and as we are talking in the kitchen she opens this jar up and the smell just about knocked me over. It was amazing. So i got a spoon and tried it straight, no jellies for me anymore, I was blown away with the amazing taste. Now i don't know if this a case of taste buds changing or just good Peanut Butter but that was a great treat. So i now have a jar in my kitchen and while i only eat a spoonful of it on any given day i am still amazed at how great it tastes.
      Happy Holidays, I hope you are all doing great over this holiday period.

        Haven't tried these. Sound good! Thanks

        They are good but...1/2 the cookie is a serving. They are BIG but I found that I wanted it ALL!! When we went to Juarez Mexico for hubbys WLS they saved him. At least that is what he thought. LOL

      3. GreenTealael

        Trader Joe's have the single serving size!!!

      12/12I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week well five days ago so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy
