RNY gastric bypass scheduled for December 17th



Recommended Posts

It seems like it's been forever since I started this journey back in April of this year but I'm happy to announce that I will finally be able to consider myself post-op after December 17th. Fingers crossed, hopefully my blood work and pre-op physical turn out good and everything goes as planned. Wish me luck!

Thanks, My surgeon only requires a one day full liquid diet but I have to continue a restricted calorie diet between now in my surgery date.

Congratulations! Wonderous, life changing news :) I found out today that I have my surgery on December 27th. My surgeon requires 2 weeks of a high Protein diet and 2 days on liquid.

Congratulations to you as well! I might do 2 days liquid too just to make sure everything goes well.

The funny thing is, from the time I attended the class in July until now, the dieting and prep requirements have gotten less strict. They were requiring a colonoscopy style bowel cleansing. I wasn't looking forward to that. LOL

      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

        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
