Two months to go for your weight loss requirement to get approval.

Embrace that this will be hard and you will be cranky. Empty your house of temptation food. Weight loss is fighting the behaviors that never served us well. Use a food app. Log your food for accountability to yourself. The challenge above is a great way to stay on track and support each other.

Good luck with your surgery. How exciting! When I had about a 6 week gap waiting for surgery, I went ahead and started eating 2 oz at a time and only foods that I knew I'd be able to eat after surgery. I wanted to "practice" to be prepared for it. My surgeon had warned us in the seminar about eating like it's our last supper before the surgery and how it would make our livers fat and wouldn't be good for the surgery.

I've gained 15 pounds waiting for my surgery date. I think it's the last suppers and things like that. I'm now on a better track trying to lose the weight before the end of March. Any tips or advice?

LilDanille, I feel you! I’ve had several “food funerals” in the past few weeks. However, I’ve decided that this week, I’m getting back on track - surgery is March 8th. So I’m going back to Protein Drinks during the day and a healthy dinner.

We got this!!

At least you have a date. That would make a huge difference I believe

      Friday marked my first surgiversary, so I wrote 3,000 words about it on Medium: https://medium.com/@mistyfritz/life-after-having-my-intestines-rerouted-d7baf9c8c39f?source=friends_link&sk=e24f2259918ac091cdbbb8a8f24b1f63

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...
