I can’t believe it! My surgery date is 3/12/19!!! In less than 2 months my life is going to change!!! ❤️❤️❤️
I can’t wait! In 4 weeks I start my 3 week all liquid diet. Thinking I will try and prep for that by starting early and doing breakfast/lunch a shake and dinner a proper meal.

Anyone have any tips or tricks? Tried and true recipes? Tips on stuff I MUST take with me to hospital? Thanks guys!!

Congratulations! The best thing i can recommend is do not stock up. What you like before surgery you may not like after surgery. Your taste buds will change and then you will be stuck with a bunch of stuff you no longer like or that your stomach can no longer tolerate. Pre Surgery, just get what you need for pre surgery and maybe a week after since you will be tired and not want to be out and about.. but after that its trial and error to find your new flavor :)

Good Luck!

Congratulations! I'm six weeks post-op sleeve. I took pajamas to the hospital and never needed them. But I did end up using my toothbrush, toothpaste, lip balm, and hand lotion. Other than that I can't think of anything you'll need there.

Believe it or not the liquid diet isn't as hard as you'd think. I had Gatorade Zero, Diet Peach Tea, Protein Shakes, sugar-free popsicles, and sugar-free Jello on mine.

I second the don't stock up rule. I liked all broth before surgery and now I can't even handle the smell of it. Good luck with your WLS journey! The clocks a ticking! :D

I couldn’t agree more about not stocking up. I’m just 5 days post op and totally sick of the Jello and popsicles I ate during the prep diet. Yeah about that prep diet....it was the worst. I was soooo miserable but now 5 days out I’m singing a different song. #successfulsurgery #lifeisgood

I am sooo nervous about the 3 week liquid diet before surgery! However, I am beyond ready for this new life! I feel incredibly blessed.

I'm not nervous. I only have to do it 2 weeks and I know it's the last time I'll suffer

Note to self...

NO STOCKING UP.

Got it!

I am really into makeup and all that jazz, so one of the things I am booking before surgery is to get eyelash extensions so when I wake up, I'll feel all pretty. lol

On a scale of 1-10, how bad was the pain after? I was thinking of just bringing flowing dresses, would yoga pants be too constricting on the wounds? I plan on walking as soon as I wake up, I'm afraid of a blood clot forming so I plan to WALK WALK WALK! :) I really appreciate y'alls input.
