Congrats, Kingteresa2006! So Exciting and yes! I have nerves as well. Doing my best to ditch sugar, white flour, rice, etc. now, still 5 weeks out from surgery. Not sure if smart to go through those withdrawals sooner rather than later? It does seem to slow time down😞being hangry in the wait for surgery. I can see pro’s/con’s both ways. Anyone’s experience woyld be helpful AND appreciated!

I might. I’m approved and paid my show of good faith fee that I am not going to weenie out. I’m waiting for them to call and schedule the surgery which I hope will be in March after my boss returns from maternity leave.

It’s going to be so hard... you save to push yourself. My surgery is scheduled for Monday, February 10th. I’m 4-days away but i can tell you that being on the pre-op liquid diet is HARD. Especially when you still have to prepare meals for your children and spouse. 🙁

Ohhh, IamBinkyBink Sooo True!! I’ve been practicing pre-op diet past few days, tho my real pre-op start date is 2/26. I must really be carb addicted b/c I am so sluggish, dragging and blah since I started. And yes, if not for cooking for hubby and not being in a stressed low mood, it might be easier.😪. Please forgive my wha wha wha, that’s not who I am nor want to be! I need to back up and realize how hard I’ve worked to get to this point, how thrilled I was getting approval, then the surgery date, and not sabotage myself after all of that! This board and knowing others have walked this walk and felt much the same yet came out victorious and thrilled by triumphing over food for good health, enjoying clothes again, not having to ignore the mirror, is a Huge Blessing! Hugs and Thanks to Everyone! WE KNOW IT IS WORTH IT, WE ARE WORTH IT!

I do not have an in stone date yet, as I have to pass a BEGIN class and pay for the sleeve in full (Which happens this Monday); before they will let me get my paws on the doctors operation appointment book. But I have been in constant chat with her and thus far we are shooting for an end of March (3/30) date and she says that is extremely do-able.

The more and more I look at a calendar the more and more nervous I get LOL.

March 12th and very nervous. Struggling with not just letting it all fly now that I know I’m having surgery. food funerals? Stress eating? Definitely. Considering a few days of pre-op diet to try and see how I do.

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
