I am 32 years old, I am 5 ft 9in and my current weight is 345 lbs my heaviest weights was 362 lbs. I have two children who are 13 and 10. I have been married for almost 14 years. I am scheduled to have surgery on the 19th of June if everything goes according to plan. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I’m hoping that this time next year I can be back in the softball field and running in a 5k and more with my youngest son who is very active. I am so sick of sitting on the sideline in a chair. I want to be out there helping him practice and get back to my old active self. I was in a car accident when I was 17 which is when I started all my weight gain. Then at 18 I got pregnant and gained 90 lbs in 9 months lost 30 of it after having my oldest and then gained 75 when I got pregnant with my youngest. I want to wear high heels and not feel like I’m going to snap the heel. I want to get back to my Hot Mama self lol anyone else with me?
Good luck!! ❤️

Welcome Deanna...I also want to remain curvy but healthier. I never had trouble getting pregnant even though I was a bit overweight back then, but since I had small kids, I didn't want to take the risk of having the surgery and having complications or even death(this was back in the early 90s when this surgery was much higher risk). Now my kids are grown and I can focus on getting myself healthy.


Absolutely!! Wishing you all the luck in the world!! ❤️

So I didnt see a June thread and wanted to make one so we could all stay accountable and have a lot of good and bad experiences together!!! Introducing myself: My name is Kassandra, I am 27 years young, I have 3 great kids, a wonderful hubby, and 3 great cats. I'm a type 2 diabetic & have sleep apnea. I decided to do this to take my life back. I'm 5 ft 2 and 258 lbs. I had planned for the sleeve but my insurance won't cover it right now so RNY it is!

*also posted on bypass board*
Hello, my date is June 26th, congrats to you it's right around the corner!

How is everyone doing? When are yall starting your liquid diet?


My doctor doesn’t need me to be on a liquid diet, however, I’m a little apprehensive so I’ll probably do a 5 day liquid diet at the end of May.

May 21st is my liquid diet start date. Two full weeks.

I have prepared by buying Vitamins, Protein of several varieties and all the other usual stuff people buy. Probably a lot less common, but I also bought a snow cone machine. :) I figure it might be nice to help get some liquid in early on when things are tough. I have tried freezing some of the clear fruity Isopure Protein Drink and then running it through the machine. Worked great! Maybe I can get both some Fluid and protein in this way, if needed. Also bought some Torani sugar free to change up the flavor of drinks and plain yogurt. Torani is also pretty great on the snow from the machine as a no cal snack!

Special hello to my June 3rd surgery siblings ChelseaMari and starladustangel !

So I actually thought the same and found some sugar free snow cone syrups at The store. We’ve had a snow cone machine for years and I pull it out every summer but was thinking it will be a lifesaver when I’m recovering if the cold doesn’t bother me too much. I can tell you I’ve used vanilla syrups in them before and loved them. You can mix with fruity flavors too if you like creamsicles.

Good Morning All!

I found out about this surgery a few months ago when running into a friend I had not seen for 10 years. I did not recognize her at all. After chatting with her and then doing research on Dr. Google I was feeling like, " HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS WAS A POSSIBILITY FOR ME"???? I have been a high level athlete since my teenage years who has tried every single diet to stay lean enough, and barely succeeding at that, with a collar coaster of loss and gain.

I am beyond excited to have this done, slightly terrified at the huge change in my stomach and intestine, and embarrassed to actually tell people what I am doing.

I have had to do it privately because I don't qualify through healthcare because I don't have a high enough BMI, not enough health issues, etc.. I am 43 years old, 244 pounds and 5'9". This is unhealthy and causes me joint pain, limits my abilities in my passions, and has always been " THE BANE OF MY EXISTENCE"! When I told my sister, she CRIED with joy for me! She knows I have spent my whole life fighting to try and stay a reasonable weight.

Well, my surgery is booked for June 6th and I am BEYOND excited!!!! I start the shakes on May 23rd.

Good Luck to everyone! I love reading about everyones journeys. It is a privilege.

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds

      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
