I know this is a ways off but thought it would be good to get a group together that is just starting the 6 month wait till surgery. We can chat about pre-op diet, fitness, relationship with food, insurance, doc appointments, psych evaluation and everything else we will be experiencing in the months to come.

It is looking like I will have an August Surgery date. I just had my first weigh in; I have to have 6. Plus meet with a Psychologist, and a nutritionist.

@sarahredwood Which surgery are you having done? Have you had any lucky with losing weight with the nutritionist? I don't go back for my 2nd weigh in until the 19th, but I think I must have lost a little as my jeans aren't as tight. How many weigh in's do you have to do? I have to do 6.

I hate calling it a weigh in, to me it sounds like a herd of cattle. haha.

Hi guys! I think I’m an August person, too, although I don’t have an official date yet. Just had my second weigh in and I’m down 16 lbs. none of my clothes feel any looser, but that’s more because I only wear black leggings. 😂

Hi @MarigoldSky That's great you are already down 16 lbs. I don't have an official date yet either, so no worries. My 2nd weigh in isn't for 2 weeks, but I know I'm not down that much. I'm thinking maybe 5, if that.

@GrungeGrownUp @sarahredwood Have you guys made appointments yet or completed the psych eval or Upper GI x-ray? Feeling nervous about both.

Hi @GrungeGrownUp and @MarigoldSky. I just had my second appointment with the nutritionist and it went ok. No pounds lost this month but I did notice a lot about my eating habits and I think that will help with this journey.

I do t have an official date yet but hoping for early August. The coordinator said it’s still to early to schedule the surgery.

Not sure which surgery I will have. Do you know?

@sarahredwood I believe I'm getting the sleeve. Have you been to an informational meeting regarding types of surgery?

      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!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.
