I’m so sorry to hear about the cancellation. I know you are bummed. Sending positive vibes your way! I hope this mess is over soon so all of you who have been postponed can move ahead with your surgeries. In the meantime, you can indeed stay on your journey and prepare more for even better success!! My surgery was postponed almost two months and looking back now I see it was a blessing in disguise. I used that time to really prepare myself for this and get even healthier before surgery. Wishing you well on your continued journey ❤️

Ive had sort of the same thing happen for surgery on my foot. My thoughts are to take the same pre-surgery steps but just a little bit longer. For my foot, it's still getting out there walking, but for WLS it might be working on a 1500-2000 calorie diet. There are so many things we can do given the right mindset. Ive seen so many people out walking recently and even the New York Times has mentioned an upswing in people running.

I'm so sorry you have to wait longer, BUT....on the UP side, you have more time to lose weight before surgery on the "shrink the liver" diet. I'm told that doing this makes the surgeon's job easier....and that of course is a good thing.

So sorry to hear that. I can't imagine how disappointed you must be. Hang in there, though, and hopefully you will resume your journey soon!

I was due to have my gallbladder removed today, and it got cancelled at 3.15pm yesterday. I was upset for a while, although I understood that coronavirus patients had to be prioritised.

On the plus side, I had to do a liver shrinking diet for 5 days, and I lost 5 lbs. 😊

GOOD FOR YOU!!

I found that before my surgery and being on the "Shrink Your Liver" diet I lost weight faster than I am now post-surgery. Go figure!!

Me too! But my bari-team assures me that is perfectly normal, and the average weight loss post surgery is about 10 lbs a month.

10 pounds a month I could do without surgery. BUT I guess the difference is that the surgery won't LET you go off your diet without suffering for it.

Best

The second liver-shrinking diet has done me a favour, because my weight loss had sort of bottomed-out, 19 months after the sleeve. It's a boost in troubled times!

        What state are you in????

      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.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
