Hey October peeps. I am 7 days post op as of today. 11 lbs gone as of today. I stayed one night in the hospital. The staff was wonderful. I had the achy gas in my chest the first couple of days but after I started walking that went away. I am on the liquid diet now and will continue that another week. Can't wait til the pureed food stage. I haven't seen my scale budge in awhile and it is so nice to get on the scale now and see a difference. I am so excited about this new way of life It's tough, but the payoff is going to be amazing! Good vibes to everyone! :)

I am a week away from surgery, how is everyone doing on the liquid diet? I am definitely struggling

I am about 7 days into the pre-op diet, and have surgery on Monday the 28th.

One thing that worked for me was chicken Bone Broth. I know others have mentioned it, but it really did kill my head hunger. Hope this helps!

I have a few days left, my surgery, like Losing for Jack's is Monday, 10/28. I have the Unjury Protein broth that helps and, when I can't stomach another shake, I use that (I like salt more than sweet). The first few days are the hardest, then it's much better. Broth, sugar free Jello and sugar free ice pops (also crystal light when you can't do any more plain Water or need flavor to trick the hunger) are so necessary. A lot of people in my area must be doing this surgery or have had it, because SF ice pops are so much harder to find than you'd think. Also, I asked a vendor at a hockey game for a SF Italian ice and you would have thought I asked for $1 million. Seriously hard to find any friendly things out and about (it didn't hurt to ask - well, it didn't hurt me....you should have seen her face 😆

It's going on Saturday morning here in No California. My VSG is Monday! I had my official weigh in at the nutritionist's Friday afternoon and I had lost 13 lbs since I started the liquid diet on Oct 14! So I'm down 27 lbs since I started all the steps in the program back in May. I did not cheat the entire time on the liquids until today. But I only had bites of things, not an entire meal. I went shopping for non-food items after my weigh in, like toiletries, slippers, sports bras, comfortable undies, a comfortable pajama gown. Then shopped Amazon Prime for an Abdominal binder, Benefiber, Probiotics, sublingual B12, Tomorrow or Sunday I will get the post-op food items on the list I received from the nutritionist. I've been cleaning the house these past few days, and even totally cleaned and organized the refrigerator and pantry. Catching up on laundry and any upcoming bills. My hubby is taking off Monday-Wednesday. I have to check in at 0930 Monday for 1130 surgery. I can't believe it's finally 2 days away. Let's keep supporting one another and hoping n praying for the best possible outcome!

Hello all! I had my RNY on 10/18. I have been pleasantly surprised by my recovery. The weekend of surgery there was soreness of course, but by Tuesday I was relatively pain-free. My twin sister also had a RNY, but 2 years before I did.I was concerned about nausea but didn't experience any. I think I didn't because of the way my doctor did my leak test vs. the way hers did. I went to the farmers market with my family this morning and had no problems getting around. I hope everyone is doing well on their journey.

Congrats to all October Peeps! I just want to share this with my fellow sleevers: the VOLUMETRIC INCENTIVE SPIROMETER (I/S) is one of my best friends since surgery. After surgery, It felt like an aching pain at first that I later describe to the nurse as an uncomfortable feeling in my chest , back, and or shoulder. At first the nurse gave me a hot Water bag that I was able to lay on and another nurse even massaged my shoulder. I got up to walk but nothing was working until the Tech came in and asked me to start using my I/S device every hour.... let -me-tell-you after the first few inhales and painful coughs( I was like thank you Jesus) i started feeling better. I sorta-of went off on a couple of nurses😉 because I didn't understand why I was given the hot water bag and massages if all i needed was my I/S device, now i was questioning their experience.(nurses Lani and Juan will probably never forget me😁)

I am 6 days post sleeve surgery, and as of today I still use my I/S device daily, not every hour. The cough is still uncomfortable but the relief i feel in my upper shoulder makes it all worth it.❤️

I’m getting ready to leave for the hospital in about an hour! Today’s the day. It hasn’t totally hit me yet, but it will once I step foot into the hospital! Here goes! I’ll check back in on here once I’m up for it.

      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.
