Lol not laughing at you but everything has been going good also except I can’t pee, they had to straight catheter me yesterday, I’m hoping more walking today and I will be able to go. I stopped the morphine hoping this will help.
Mine came out at 6 and I have not had pain meds since 2am but ready to just so I can get a nap omg I’m so tired. I did get the pump thing on my stomach and get to keep it for 5 days, thank god I don’t have to go anywhere ha ha. I still am having some pressure in the top of my stomach near my ribs and can’t get a deep breath but I’m not gonna stop trying:) Hope you can pee soon!

My liquid diet started today--surgery is tomorrow, won't know what time until this afternoon when they call...

Excited, very nervous, but love reading how everyone who has gone ahead of me this month is doing now! Trying to get myself good an hydrated. I expect I probably won't be able to sleep tonight...

Doing all ok here. On pain meds from an IV. Compression socks on. And also these calf wraps that massage. Just feel tired. I also have oxygen.

I’m so grateful for this forum and all the lovely people on who have shared, to the women who have also shared on instagram & YouTube. I feel blessed to have had that as a support to inform me.

I hope everyone is doing great. Sending everyone much love, support and whatever it is you need. We can all do this, this has given me hope for great change to make life so much better. I can feel happiness sifting in. Things will be difficult but no matter what challenges lay ahead, we can all do this step by step. It’s a big thing we’ve all made the decision to do to help ourselves.

My weigh in at surgery was 293.3 so down.

Night night everyone. 😊☺️🤩

I love hearing about everyone who has already had their surgery. I hope you all are recovering well.
My bypass is tomorrow, so I am on a clear liquid diet all day today. I have to drink magnesium citrate today also. I know that is supposed to “clean out” my digestive track 😃, so I am a little nervous about the timing. I have to leave the house to get my girls from school and I need to go to Target at some point today. I really don’t want any embarrassing bathroom situations to occur.
Other than that, I am going to pack my bag today and do some cleaning around the house in case I don’t feel like doing that for a while. I also need to remember to have my husband take some “before” pictures tonight.
I hope I’m not forgetting anything!

Yes indeed! I feel the same way--a very long time coming. I am on that roller coaster of nerves and excitement. I won't know what time my surgery is until this afternoon when they call. I am a little anxious!

17april🙋‍♂️ This time next week it will all be over/beginning! To say I’m nervous is a massive understatement! The pre op diet is testing to say the least as I live away with work in hotels surrounded by fast food. I’ve made a few rubbish choices last week and with a week to go I hope I’ll be ok and haven’t done to much damage. Good luck everyone!

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.
