My VSG is scheduled for January 7th, 2019. I have to get it done before school starts up, which is January 14th. Is anyone else celebrating getting a surgery date like I am!?

I’m January 10th! I was hoping to get mine done over our winter break but it didn’t work out. But I’m happy that I at least got a date!
Congratulations! Are you excited?
When does your winter break end?
I was hoping for something a little sooner because I wanted a least two weeks to heal before school started but oh well, one week will have to be enough!

January 16th here - I was hoping for a December date, but thanks to my insurance requiring a specific hospital, January it is. Ironically, I start the presurgical diet on New Years Day - quite the new years resolution! :)

Congratulations, everyone! I have a day tracker on my phone counting down the days and I’ve been trying to not pay attention to it in hopes of that making seem like time is going faster. 😂😂

Me too! I'm officially under the 30 day mark! My friends and family keep saying that it seems like time has passed by quickly since I decided to have surgery, but I feel like this last month is going to drag! I still have a lot of things I need to do before surgery (take 2968934892 before pics, buy post-op food, etc.), so hopefully that will give me something to do in the meantime.

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!
      I even created a new blog post today! https://sabrinagoddess.com/create-a-life-that-you-love

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.
