So, I just but the bullet, (like 8 minutes ago!) and sent the deposit for my surgery. I’ll be heading off on the 16th for surgery on the 18th :) I’ve got a couple of trips away between now and then that my husband has been looking forward to for months and I didn’t want him to miss out otherwise I’d have booked for an earlier date, but hopefully those trips will make the time speed up a bit. Bring it on :)

Just thought I'd bump this, I can't be the only one?? I'm struggling more than ever with watching what I eat right now. I really need to start getting in the habit of recording what I eat . I'm having my surgery abroad so I'm going to take it upon myself so seek some therapeutic help to deal with my food addiction issues...If that's what I have. All I know is, I've lost and gained the same 6 stone for 18years and I need to break the cycle!

My surgery is scheduled for June 20th. Could’ve done it May 9th, but I’m waiting on my son to finish the school year so we can spend some time together during my recovery. I only get 1 week vacation a year. Boo. Going to take 2 extra days anyways, and hope I feel ok to go back to work.

i use an app called myfitnesspal to track my meals/ calories and its been working great for me it has reminders to log your meals and it also adjust your calories when you input your exercises you can even keep track of how much Water you drink a day. there is also a featur that tells your how much you will weigh if you eat the same calories for 5 weeks . im doing really well better than i thought ! im my appointment for my last clearance is tomorrow i hope ill be joining the June Sleevers club ! good luck!

p.s the app mapmywalk by the same maker tracks your walks and tell you the distance you went and how many calories you burned. it only tracks walking though.

I could've done it this month but I had a trip to Rome last weekend as a final foodie hoorah and My husband is really looking forward to a weekend away at the beginning of June so I'm going the following week :)

I have a fitbit tracker and I do have my fitness pal app, it's remembering and motivating myself to use it!

I don’t have a date yet, but the only thing I have left to do is my scope and a final meeting with the surgeon to begin my two week pre-op diet. Scope is on the 30th this month, then middle of May I’ll be out of town for a week. My scheduler was certain that I could have a June surgery. Cheers to all!

My surgery is scheduled for the 28th. I’m still trying to get all my stuff together for post surgery. I don’t even know where to begin!

Mine is the 18th, I’m going privately to turkey. I’ve been told to lower my carbs the week before but as far as prep goes, that’s it. There’s not a lot else they do. They do all pre-op tests, scans etc there, the day before (they have a lab on sight so can get results pretty much immediately) i’m going to go meet my GP before I go to let them know I’m doing the surgery, if anything, it can’t hurt to have it on record and I was considering asking about being referred for some kind of food therapy. Bad relationships with food, control and compulsive eating got me where I am and i’d Feel better knowing I’m working on those things too

Try Myfitness Pal, it is free and can be done on the phone. Will count calories and Protein. I also have a Fitbit that pairs with this program.

Those that have June dates, I will keep you in my thoughts and wish you a safe journey. I still have two more appointments before I get a date. I guess I have an entire summer to try to lose some weight. I have a few favorite summer dishes so I'll try to keep on the downward trail. Keep us updated!

Hi! My journey so far has been quite quick. I saw the surgeon for the first time late in April, have a gastroscopy in a couple of weeks and I've been scheduled for the sleeve on the 14th of June. I have hypothyroidism and osteoarthritis. I'm a little nervous but also very much looking forward to the new start. Good luck to all the others who are also scheduled for June!

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
