I hope as well that your RNY stays uneventful and fast pain free healing.

If you don't mind me asking, where is your surgery going to be and how much did you loose on your first day of a liquid diet? I lost 4lbs. last night. I also rechecked as I do every morning right after I pee. I was still down 4lbs.. Even after putting in 128 oz. of Water yesterday.

My surgery is in Northern California and Kaiser Fremont. My surgeon isn't requiring a liquid diet pre-surgery. He did make me lose weight before he would approve surgery, and I'm down almost 40 lbs since starting in July. I am going to try to be really good this week and avoid anything that might inflame the liver (no caffeine, alcohol, sweets, etc...) and my goal is to drink 100+ oz Water today.

That's great you don't have to have the dreaded liquid diet. I lost 55lbs. In 3.5 months or so. I cut out all processed carbs and sugar including breads, flours, and breads. Love monk fruit/ erithritol sweetner though. I'm currently 232lbs. Was 287lbs back in the summer. I am 5'6", I was 5'8" before my lumber spinal fusion in 2010. So I'm shrinking due to spinal disc collapsing. I'm also having the surgery for metabolic reasons and to lighten the load on my all of my arthritic joints. I have been diagnosed with Diabetes type 2 in the summer that's when I cut out sugars except for the Dannon fit and light greak yogharts. I really hope you do well with your surgery. My stomach is gurgling so loud right now. Wow. Time for a Protein isolate shake.

I'm getting pretty nervous. My house is clean, I finished up with work, and I've done all my shopping. I even cleaned out the fridge and freezer so I don't have anything I shouldn't have in the house.

I have a couple more things to do around the house over the next 2 days and I will do some food prep over the next couple of days (not a ton to do, just putting some greek yogurt, SF Jello, broth in 2 oz cups, etc... ) It would be much easier if I could just keep busy.

How are you all feeling?

Like you I've been cleaning and prepping the house. And shopping, I keep feeling like there's something else I need. It's kind of like the nesting you go through when you're pregnant, lol. I guess it's appropriate since we'll be bringing home a new baby stomach. I'm pretty sure I'll be driving myself completely crazy by Tuesday. Thankfully my surgery is very early on the 31st so I won't have to stress too long that morning.

I'm already starting to drive myself crazy! I took Monday off work and I'm starting to think maybe I shouldn't have - at least I'd be busy. As it is I'm excited and nervous and terrified on a rotating loop :)

Well I just got about 2 weeks worth of groceries for my wife and me. The groceries are put away, and I think I will relax in the recliner till I fall asleep with some Eagles playing, Peaceful Easy Feeling is my first track.

I am semi ready. Trying to work today but have a massive headache. My doctor had me drink magnesium citrate and it was so sweet it made my stomach hurt. Did you have to do that? What time is your surgery?

No Magnesium citrate. Tomorrow I do have to drink a "Carb drink" - about 2 hours before I go in at 9:45 am. I'm prepared for it to be super sweet but hope to be wrong.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      4. BayougirlMrsS

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
