Love the rose quartz stone, one of my all-time favorites. Welcome Alice, this is a great place to meet people who are on similar journeys. And there are many still active that are veterans of VSG or Gastric bypass like me. If you have any questions as time goes by, please feel free to ask. I have learned so much from those ahead of me and love sharing information with the " Newbies" like you. And when your surgery is completed be sure to update us, we will be happy to Celebrate with YOU!😝

You're always so amazing and uplifting to everyone. I really love that. I love the life you are full of. Its wonderful to meet such a beautiful soul such as yourself.

Happy Tuesday JuneBunch,

Well today is Day 2 of liquid diet. I am so proud of myself..... I haven't climbed the walls, yet.

I am going to try and get my hands on a few Premier shakes (flavor caramel). I am thinking mixing the caramel with the chocolate could be something AMAZING!!!

I noticed towards the end of the day, I was suffering from dry mouth but that is the least of my worries.

I meet with the anesthesiology dept this morning to go over do's and don'ts for the new few days.

JuneBunch, if I can do this (well it's still just 2 days in), then you all can do it too. (See how I threw that pep talk in there?)😆

Girl I am so happy you're not suffering through it. I can only imagine how hard it is. I'm supposed to officially start my liquid diet next Wednesday.

Quick update! I was getting really frustrated with all the "last suppering" I was doing, and also with friends who wanted to eat with me one last time before my life changes... so I pretty much started the liquid diet on Saturday rather than today. I've stuck to it pretty faithfully except for one small bit of cheese last night to satiate some ravenousness. It's been going pretty well so far all things considered. I've dodged some of the worse "keto flu" symptoms... mostly I've been pretty spaced out, and dealing with mildly fitful sleep and a bit of nausea. I feel like I'm over the hurdle today, but we'll see - there's still a lot of day left to get through!

Welcome to all the new folks, and keep up the awesome work all of you lovelies! I'm rooting for you all!

Had my final tests and class before surgery today. Now I wait for my call Monday night to tell me when my surgery is on Tuesday. Can’t believe I made it here. This time next week I will have a new belly.

It’s exciting to hear about all of you with upcoming surgeries. I’m glad mine is happening soon. I had a meltdown last night because I was in so much pain from my hip. Somedays, every step is excruciating. I have to lose 80 pounds before I can get hip replacement. I am so ready to get going with my post surgery self. I started my pre-op diet today-no carbs, no sweets, no fruit for 13 more days. I’ll be praying for all of you June surgery folks. Please do the same for me. I know this will be tough, but I am ready.

If anyone has good thoughts to spare, I could use some. I'm 9 days away from surgery and have come down with a nasty cold. Went and got a strep test just to make sure it's not anything worse. I don't want anything to get in the way of my surgery.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
