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

      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!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
