Hi! I am new here...

Scheduled for 06/29... I am freaking out. Last night I had the realization that I am actually scared of being a normal weight..... I am not sure how I am going to survive the next 20 days. I am so nervous!

I had the lap band 11 years ago and lost 100 pounds. The ease of moving around was heaven. I didn't walk into a room and try to figure out what chair I would sit in or could I do the booth. People start to talk to you and you get attention. I got to do what I wanted to do without fear of how would my size effect it. Go for it and live your best self. Make a list of all the things you were afraid to do or wanted to do but didn't because of size. Then go out and conquer the world.

I’m scheduled for June18th as well. Starting get a little nervous but I guess it’s nice to be in the same boat as you guys.

So am I! I was super nervous but now I'm just excited and ready to be on the other side of surgery and on my weight loss journey.

Just know this

Life-saving life-changing

Youll never be the Sane as u were before

ur goal when eating js to provide ur body with nutrition to sustain ur life. It will never be about fun anymore when I eat. If u choose cake over a meal, u will not be taking care of ur body.

just remember this...if they tell u it’s time to get up and walk, get up and walk, walk, walk, walk, walk , walk. Drinking in the beginning will be a chore. Take a sip every 10 minutes. With me, I the second day, the day I went home. I walked around the ward, and every time I got to my room, I’d sip Water then go back around again, I did that for like 45 minutes.

When u get home. Get up every 15 and take stroll around the house, when u do, take a sip of water.

be very methodical and you’ll be fine

plan

good,luck

Good luck tomorrow! I just had mine on 5/23 & honestly - it's been great. First 24 hours were way more painful than I expected. Everything else has been easier than I expected. The day after when they finally gave me fluids, it was not hard to get them down. I did the 2oz sipped. Watched the clock and paced myself, but easy. The first 2 weeks of nothing but Soups I was climbing the walls. I'm literally... 18 days post op and no complications. I can easily easily drink. I woke up this morning & probably drank 8oz in one sip. I'm being careful to never drink at least 30 min past eating & have made it a personal challenge to get down 65oz of just Water per day, but it's not been hard. Liquids go down super easy for me. Meals, 4oz. I'm eating eggs, ground meats, yogurts. A lot of quiche - eggs and cheese & veggies. I've also had no issues whatsoever with swallowing any pills.

First post here. I had my sleeve surgery on 6/4 , so I'm 1 week post-op. Doing OK, though still having a lot of pain from my "stomach removal" incision. Walking & moving more every day. Still on liquids for another week. Can drink really well, as long as it's not a BIG gulp! Then it hurts... oh how it hurts!

Finally hit my Protein & liquid goals yesterday. Yay!

I had my surgery yesterday. Yesterday was rough. Nausea and pain. But today I'm doing well. Hopefully the worst is behind me.

      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.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
