So, I had my psych evaluation 2 weeks. It went really well! I was nervous and scared I’d say something stupid that might prevent moving forward, but apparently I am a clinically sane person! Anyways, I got the phone call yesterday, “Hi how are you???? Are you ready? Pre-Op is the 15th and the surgery date is the 19th!” I literally sat on the other line in silence. I had no idea what to say, how to react, and I said “August??” The nurse started laughing and said yes!!

I’m still struggling today and didn’t sleep well last night, 10 day, it’s only 10 days away!!! Obviously I know everyones story is different, I’m just blown away that I’ve been working on this for over a year, never thought I’d make it to hear someone telling my surgery date. I just hope this awkward numb feeling goes away. I know I should be beyond excited about having my date, guess that’s the procrastinator in me, wanting more time to plan.

Please tell me I’m not the only one that has had this “awkward numb” feeling after you get your surgery date...

I was supposed to have my surgery this Monday the 12th but I’ve been rescheduled for the 19th as well! I have to say as absolutely excited as I am to reboot my life & my health I was a little relieved to have another week to absorb all the emotions I’m feeling about it!! Congrats ladies! We’re surgery triplets !!!

Well, made it through day 1 of only clears, and it flew by! Just one more day! I still can’t believe it’s actually here! I just can’t believe I made it. I wish all of you the best of luck, especially KishaG and Bianca! We did it! I’m so ready for this amazing life changing experience!

Tomorrow is the big day & I feel ready & excited. Things have begun to change within me since I began this journey. Slowly I’ve started to regain some of my lost self esteem. Committing to the surgery alone ... making a commitment to myself has brought back in me a sense of self love which has been missing from my life for several years.
I’m very reflective this morning because I know I’m embarking on a new life. One that I’m excited about . Best of luck to all my surgery twins! We’ve got this!!!!

Yes I agree it was difficult, glad it’s the weekend when I have to do the 2 day clear liquid diet.

Nice I’m at 9am

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
