Hi :) welcome!

I am one of the 4 that @Deedee12 was mentioning! I will be going in tomorrow morning at 6:30 is my arrival time but 9 am is surgery.

I will say for me what helped me control my nerves was binge watching my 600lb life and family by the ton, as well as YouTube experiences. I also read a Bariatric mindset success book.

Also what helping me from not backing out is
1. Knowing how much money I’ve put in already with all the copays and what insurance didn’t cover during the process
2. My WHY Im doing this

Feel free to send me any questions you may have :)

Hello I’m doing good. Today has been easier drinking. I even was able to sleep for the first time since surgery on my right side (I’m a stomach sleeper) but not my left yet.

Liquids/semi liquid stage 2 for me has been difficult since I have no appetite I have to remind myself to have something that’s not just Water or a sugar free drink.


How are you?

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
