so are you really happy you want the operation? its a big change in life. I had the band fitted so if all went wrong i could get it reserved. What do the rest of the family think about the op. I didnt tell anyone until after my op and then it ws limited. It does get boring repeating to everyone why and when.

Hello I am 7 months into this program, today is my appointment to pick up my shakes for my liquid diet and meet with my surgeon to get everything I need for my surgery on 2-25-19. Anything I can help you with let me know. I am here to help.
Have a great day.
Hey Reina! I'm the 25th too. Just started my pre-op diet today. How are you making out on all liquids?

That’s something I was curious about is how many of you revealed your surgery. As of right now only my immediate family knows that I will be having it. I don’t have a lot of friends and I haven’t told my sisters or brother yet as I don’t want to worry them. I’ve had a lot of health issues so I figured this is my chance to get them under control. I’m a very private person and don’t socialize much so I’m sure it’s gonna be a shock to some afterwards.

My parents know. My boss knows. I told one lady from church who had WLS about 17 years ago and I told my best friend. I also am pretty private, but felt strongly about telling my best friend. I knew if our roles were reversed, I’d absolutely want to know she was having surgery!

Ive been trying to think of a response to have ready when people comment on my weight loss.

I work in an office with 11 ladies, many of whom are opinionated and do not hesitate to give opinions (wanted or not). All of them are thin so I feel certain I’ll hear some comments.

That’s what I’m trying to stay away from is the opinionated comments. To many times people jump to conclusions before educating themselves and assume things that aren’t true. I know people talk and it could possibly get out their but for now that is only my immediate family I’ve got 3 people to point a finger at if it gets out.
Those 3 people also see how hard I’m working on this also and what I’m sacrificing and what their sacrificing by me being the main cook in the family, so they best be sweet and never criticize their “Momma” if they plan on getting fed. Lol

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)
