I'm October 1st as well. I will be having my surgery at the Bariatric Pal Hosp in Mexico. We can all be buddies! I agree, the holidays will be interesting this year! I'm trying to line up my stuff to pack as I fly down on 9/30. Can we say EXCITED?

I am going to BariatricPal MX on the first also!

Hi all, Anyone have an October 2019 surgery date? Mine is 10/28/19 (my surgeon is away for 2 weeks, so I'm at the end of the month). Oh, the holidays are going to be so weird this year (my birthday too, which is 11/19).

I have a tentative date of October 15/19. I'm getting so excited! I've lost 35 lbs on my own already. I'm so ready to move forward on my journey to health and fitness!

Lizzziee -

I'm looking forward to seeing you there! I will be flying in on the 30th, and am scheduled for the 1st. So, we can walk the halls, terrorizing the staff together. How exciting. You nervous yet? I'm just flat excited. I'm borderline giddy!

How is everyone doing on the liquid diet? I am having bad side affects, nausea and very bad headaches. 😞

I started mine on the 24th (Tuesday). I had a little bit of a headache for a few hours later on in the afternoon. I think that's because 1. No solid food, not even my AM snack with my meds & 2. first really caffeine free day.

I had diarrhea Wednesday AM and again this morning. Hope it doesn't surprise me on Monday. That when I fly to San Diego. From the Seattle area it's only approximately 2 hrs. But, with my luck, it would hit while I have to have my seatbelt on and can't get up.

I want to give a shout out to my husband. My husband, Chris is wonderful. He is my "world best husband". You know there is not just 1 person in all the world for you. How could there be? Just person 1 out of literally billions! Statistically, even God would agree with me on this one. But, when you finally find 1 of those "right" people, you can't be thankful enough. I kissed and married a lot of frogs before I met my Toad! And I thank God, everyday. The "Toad" reference is a private joke we have. He's my Toad and I'm his MSW (My Secret Weapon).

Chris has been just wonderful through the last few months. Hell, 22 years, and I hank him for that all of the time. I see all the entries where spouses or partners are real Jack Asses before and/or after wls. Chis has been supportive. He hasn't changed his diet to accommodate mine. However, I see he has been fixing his food, and eating without saying a word. I don't even know what he is up to! Chris even rinses his plate and sticks it into the dishwasher without my knowledge. He has completely stopped buying his treats. He says he needs to lose weight also, so he doesn't need them, and it would be cruel to eat treats in front of me. He has taken interest in my new food selections and helps me with taste testing. He likes really sweet and he likes salty. I don't like either. So, quite often my test subjects get a thumbs down from him..

In essence, I just want to thank all of the supportive friends and family members of all of you who are having wls. For those of you now living with a "warted frog", don't worry. Be brave and be strong. Don't be afraid to be alone if that's what it comes to. You know why? When all is said and done...there's a "Toad" out there. Just wait, be patient, you will meet each other. You know how I know? Because after years of pond scum and frogs, my "Toad" and I met 22 years ago. Ribit, Ribit!

Love your shout out to your hubby. I am luck too and won the husband lottery. My husband is so supportive, even though I know he has his concerns about this. I just read on the FB forum about a woman complaining she went back to the doctor for her 2 week follow up post surgery and only lost 4 lbs. She came home sad and told her husband he said "haha, i've been adding butter and sugar to your broth" What??!!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
