I am just getting used to using this forum site. I love it. I hope to post pictures of every step, including what my home in Mexico looks like, the hospital, staff etc. I think it would be interesting for people to see. I am excited, nervous, but feeling very fortunate. This is Round 3 for me, with the modification of my RNY. I am feeling good that I am 87 pounds below my pre 2000 surgery. I have kept a lot of the weight off. With this site and all the great tools out there, I feel really hopeful that I will succeed in getting off the rest of the fat. Good luck to everyone here, and I hope we all have wifi on our phones in the hospital. It would be great to see pictures!

I'm getting extremely impatient as I get closer to the date! I just want to do this thing already. liquid diet starts this Monday so I've just been getting everything I need for that.

I'm getting to anxious. Tomorrow is my surgical clearance appt with the NP at my surgeon's office. After that I just have to go to the seminar a week before, and get blood work, and start my pre-op diet on the 29th! It seems like forever but it's going to go super fast I have a feeling. I'm anxious.

Thats awesome! We're getting there :) I think once we hit the preop diet the process will feel faster and more real.

I begin my preop on the 20th. My biggest challenge is coffee. Picture this: On my kitchen counter I have an nespresso espresso machine, a Keurig, a grind and brew coffee maker. In my pantry I have a coffee press and a large coffee maker for when I have guests. I live in a 924 sq foot apartment. In Mexico, I have all the same coffee making things. I just ordered a portable espresso maker for travel.

I am a 3 shots of espresso a day person. I always drink the espresso with milk in the form of a latte or Cappuccino.

Three Decaf coffees throughout the day.

I am now down to one shot of caffeinated espresso per day. 4 coffee drinks with cashew milk made with decaf espresso.

Giving up that final, last shot of espresso is going to be the hardest thing ever. I thought I better go down to 1/2 decaf espresso shot during the first week of my pre-surgical. Four days before.... I will give it up completely and deal with the headaches.... ugh.

My surgical clearance is done! I have all of the prescriptions I'm going to need after surgery and I'm just waiting to hear from the hospital about scheduling my seminar and blood work. And to boot I lost 1.5 lbs! I'm so ready!
