I may have to push my surgery to February. Starting a new job and the surgery is to close tothe date I have in October to take off. Then the holidays. Plus said January would be hard to get any time off. So I am going to call tommorow, see what February looks like. That's so long away. Maybe I can try a diet once more. Don't know what to do. I already had to change from August to October now all the way till February. I will have a secondary insurance from my work by then. Diet or patiently await till February?

Wait patiently and work on lifestyle modifications. Try getting some walking in, start eliminating things from your diet that you won't be able to have after surgery. I found that this was very helpful. Recovery is hard enough without going through withdrawal from cravings. Give up the sugar, simple starches, caffeine, soda, alcohol.

If dieting worked for you, you would have already lost the weight and kept it off by now. Like many of us, you have probably lost and regained many times. All that does is wreck your metabolism and short circuit the stomach-brain transmissions, making permanent weight loss nigh unto impossible. The time will past quickly, with holidays right around the corner, and starting a new job. Hang in there!

      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.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      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".
