New here!

My projected month was October but given everything goes to plan when I see my doc next week (I must be less than when I was last there...which is gonna be slightly hard, since my weight was wrote incorrectly the last time I was there! ) Anyhow, my surgery should be Sept 10th! Wish me well next week at the doc!

To quote Dr Suess
Oh the Places you will Go----
Oh the Things you will See! But Welcome to our World, the Minor heart aches are more than outweighed by the MAJOR benefits. Very very few of us would even want to return to where we were before, I have had a strangely difficult road to recovery but I would never ever return to the Frustr8 I was before September 5th 2018. She was obese, sick, had given up on herself and almost life itself. No No. Never Ever Again will I Be There! I'm down over 140 pounds since then, don't know if I have gotten cuter, cuteness is optional at 73 , but people no longer ignore the fat lady in the corner, I'm living large with a much smaller body and I am a Force to Contend With, like my Country Soul Sister Reba McEntire I'M NOT GOING OUT LIKE THAT ! I'm sassy , RedHeaded and a Strong Proud Person Now. So let's hear your stories too, okay?

I have my VSG pre-op on the 21st next week. Are there any questions I should make sure to ask my surgeon?

I'm definitely going to ask about any pre-op diet. He's mentioned it in passing before, so hopefully it will be fully explained and not too long!

Hmm let’s see. When I went today, I asked the following:
Expected stay in hospital
Blood clot prevention- I have a history of one
Post op, does my Protein fluids count in the 64 I’m supposed to drink

Pre-op, I didn’t really have too many. He went through the meds he’d be ordering for after. He gave me a hand out for my pre-op diet. It’s fairly straight forward, so it was pretty easy to understand.
Oh I did ask if I needed to buy Vitamins and he said other than B1(thiamin) I won’t take any until I transition to soft foods at week 3.

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
