Hi everyone, so my gastric bypass is on Tuesday 23rd April. I’m so nervous about the op but still excited. I just can’t wait to get the journey going. I’m on the 2 wk liver diet which started really bad but with only a few days to go I’ve found the will to go on.

Good luck with all those who have ops coming up this week. Stay strong and think of the future you.

Good luck! I’m having bypass on the 24th. Now that it’s so close I’m just so eager to get thru the next few days. liquid diet is not so bad for me now. But still struggling to get all the Water in. Really going to focus on that this weekend.

Tomorrow is the big day for me. I will be so glad when it is finally over. I pray that all of you who are about to have your surgery that all will go well and a speedy recovery for you all. I pray that all those who just had the surgery will have a speedy recovery as well. :)

Wow, I haven’t posted in a bit. I hope everyone is doing well.

I’ve had a lot of thoughtful considerations since my last post. Some of them upsetting and really questioning. However I’ll post more about it after I’ve been for a walk. My first walk in a very long time. I’m sweating before I’ve even started, which gets me feeling negatively towards myself. But f&$k it, I’m going for a short walk and I’ll survive. Its confronting how unfit I am.

I really hope all April sleevers pre and post op are doing ok. Big hugs to anyone in pain or scared.

I also know this is the right thing I’ve chosen to do. It’s only the beginning and I will improve physically, mentally and emotionally. Today is one day I have to make choices towards my goals. And I’ll need to write some down later so I know what I’m achieving even when it isn’t weight loss.

Much love.
