Recommended Posts

I should be hearing my date any day now, expecting an August one I’ve done everything required and had all the tests done. It’s been a 7 almost 8 month process for me. Trying to stay patient wish insurance didn’t take so long.
I’ve lost 45 lbs on my own so far pre surgery can already feel a difference health wise so I’m excited for the future loss the surgery will give me. I started at 296. We own horses and I want to ride my horses again as my kids have grown up and are working on their careers so the horses aren’t getting road by them anymore. It’s my turn again and I’m so looking forward to it but gotta lose this weight first. Good luck to you and hopefully I’ll be posting my date real soon!!!
🤞🤞🤞🤞

My surgery date is August 12!! I’m getting RNY and am seriously scared. Also excited, obviously. My liquid diet starts on July 29 and there are literally no solid foods allowed except sugar free Jello. I’m going to be honest I’m having a serious food funeral, not even trying to watch what I eat. I realize this probably isn’t the healthiest approach. 😳😳😳😳

Welcome AnnieD78!!! We all know exactly how you feel!! It's tough to wrap your head around something so life-changing!! But, being on this forum and reading people's experiences and their journey is such a boost!!! I can honestly say that seeing their physical, emotional and even occasional spiritual transformations has helped me combat my anxiety especially the anxiety of going through ALL these and failing!!! [emoji25] What I have learned from the inspiring people here is that failure won't be an option when you follow all the directions given to work the tool of wls, work on believing you won't fail this time, be deeply open to exploring your relationship with food and combating old patterns. When/if we do this, that success will surely be ours! The low risk of the surgery versus the high benefits of weight loss and change definitely makes this a no brainer and that's why you have spent the energy needed to come this far.

Having said that, I did have my own funerals like no man's business and Concluded July 1st. I needed that so I can come to peace with the eventual break up from "my habits"[emoji28][emoji28]. It's been only 4 days but I'm truly at peace, even calmer. Working on my head game (for me this is truly more important than food!). I have to come to terms with the possibility of not being morbidly obese. That for me is the true mind f@@k and the rooted cause self sabotage in the past!!!! NOT AGAIN!!

There's a thread on here about working on your head for wls that was started by FluffyChix that I would recommend. I'm not very savvy with this site yet to post it but I hope you find it as helpful and beneficial like I have.

Take care and our turn will come soon. Sending positive vibes your way. Happy Independence Day [emoji322][emoji323][emoji322][emoji323]....if you are American [emoji1]

Omg congrats!! ❤️❤️❤️

My liquid diet starts July 22 and I'm doing the same. Its tough but we have to be strong. Its hard saying goodbye to old habits when friends and family just want to take you out to eat so you can properly say goodbye to all the food you love lol

Don’t enjoy too much, if you do I hope you don’t end up like me gaining 15lbs and needing to lose by actually your surgery date at my pre op appointment with my surgeon

      Still stalled. Hating every week of it. 
      I'm in that "I must be doing something wrong, I won't lose any more weight" mode of thinking.
      Hating everything about myself dull drums. If it wasn't for the stress of work, i'd probably be more upset.

      Yesterday I discovered stretchy pants. It was the first time that I walked into a normal store and dared to try on clothes in over many many years. Scary, but I found some guy chinos that I liked. I was even able to wear women's sizes even though the legs were wayyyyy too short.

      Down 31 pounds in my first month! OK, so a month and two days, but I'm counting it anyway. 😆
      At this point, I'm doing well overall. According to surgeons' instructions, I'm on soft foods for another week-ish. I'm so ready for solids - the soft foods can be such "sliders" and I have to be extra, extra careful.
      For example, my refried beans + dollop of plain Greek yogurt + tomatillo salsa verde became a problem. I never felt satisfied and felt I could have easily had a much bigger serving. Then, far worse was when I made homemade hummus - holy cow it is SO GOOD, but again - felt like I could have downed a quart, no problem. 😂
      It's (for me at least) extremely challenging to "eat mindfully" when the food is that soft. I mean for crying out loud, there's nothing to "chew on"! 😂
      So, couple of days ago - I committed to no more refried beans and no more hummus. Farewell my delicious friends. Going to focus on chicken and tuna and eggs for the time being (ground up til mushy, of course). 
      I'm hoping that once I get the go-ahead to introduce solids I will be able to feel the restriction. Because honestly? I'm only a month in, and I feel NO restriction. It's frustrating, but not the end of the world. Willpower was never my problem. But I'm so looking forward to that feeling I hear a lot on here when people say "Oh I ate half an egg and was SO STUFFED." This has....not been my experience. 😕
      Really hoping that's because my foods are so mushy/soft right now. We shall see. 
      Regardless, I'm 100 percent committed. I hear over and over how this tool is the most powerful for about a year, maybe/possibly a wee bit more. I will not sabotage that for the world. 
      So - doing my happy dance at 31 pounds down - I'm in a "weight decade" I haven't seen in a very long time. And it only gets better from here!

      Hi!
      Thank you for replying.   It means the world to me.  It also confirmed what I been feeling about which procedure to choose.   I fall into the category as you do and elected the sleeve as it seemed to be less invasive and recovery would be better and faster,  however I am so afraid to regain the weight back since I rarely eat and obesity runs in my family.   I have two siblings that had the bypass and they have been successful.  My sister was in the high 400's and is about 140 now and has been for several years since her procedure.  I guess I felt that the sleeve would allow me to have more control, however I realized that I can't control my genetics and that is one of the biggest reasons that I am here.  Yes, I have not always made the best choices but trust me when I say that I have been on the loss and regain + more rollercoaster weight ride for yrs! I have spent so much money as I am sure you have as well as many others who are going through this.  It is not easy and anyone who thinks this is a copout is crazy!!! This has been harder than anything I have done including hiring a personal trainer to kick my butt in the gym! And still with all the gym hours, clean eating "not to mention the clean eating cost" I knew it was time that I moved to the next step to finally be who I know in my head and heart cause when I see myself in the mirror,  well let's just say is not the girl I see in my mind. 
      So thanks again for your reply and I hope that we can keep in touch through our journey. 
      😊
