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.

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
