I’m scheduled to undergo surgery today at 10:30. Eek! I’ve been unwisely trolling these boards and now am full of a mix of relief and fear. At the moment the fear is winning out: what if I develop blood clots, what if something goes terribly wrong, blah blah. Sigh. I’m going to try to meditate and let it go. But...well...eek!

The surgery was my most fear but after is when the hard mental work comes in. Relax now as much as you can. Head hunger is real. It’s saying goodbye to everything you once knew food wise. But it’s worth it to save your life! You will do great!

So far so good. The surgery went well, my surgeon said. I’m still in hospital, possibly heading home today. I’ve been sipping and walking. At the moment my only concern/discomfort is the gas, which is beyond unpleasant and seemingly unmovable!

Thanks to you all for your encouragement!

Remember the Bible Verse " And this too shall pass!" and it will, about 2-3 days after you wish it would! We Love Ya, Baby and we have all been there! Mine was a little delayed but even I wasn't immune! Mine showed up , and I wanted to cry like a Baby with Colic!👶Whaa waaa,---- Dr Bradley J Needleman😷----What Did You Do To ME?

      Have decided on the Lap Band.  Excited, tomorrow 7/24 I have my consultation with my surgeon!  Hoping he will approve me.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
