Hello everyone. I am new to this app.
Still finding my way around it.
My RNY is booked for June 7th and I’m desperately watching the clock !
Been having trouble with an everlasting food funeral. Have gained 5lbs since booking the surgery.
I start my pre op diet in 8 days. I can’t even imagine what damage I’ll do to myself between now and then.
The only thing keeping me going is reading other people’s stories and you tube videos.
I know I’d feel better if I could make one change in preparation for my new life, so I’m trying to reach myself how to sip Water all day instead of gulp.
Does anyone know of a timer app that can send you a notification reminder to drink ?
I’ve tried loads of timer apps but they do t seem to work in that way.
I’d love to stay in touch with anyone who is having surgery in June. X

Does the surgeon have any goals for you before you have surgery?

You should be using this time to learn healthy options and make changes otherwise the bypass will be a huge shock to the system...

Be careful some surgeons may cancel surgery if their patiet gains weight or don't meet any weight loss goals set for pre surgery.

Make the best of your time between now and your surgery.

I’m self pay so the only requirement is the 10 day liver diet.
I think quarantine has hit me hard. I have 3 children home schooling and a full time job working from home. There’s a lot of traffic going around in my head at the moment.

Well you need to get your head right or the bypass will fail... So many ppl fail because they are not ready nor do enough research...

I agree, Superman84. I've started following the diet (90 grams Protein , eating every 3 hours (5 to 6 meals/day), increasing Water to 80 ozs). I'm still eating regular food between shakes but really reducing portion size. I'm using this time to try shakes, Fruit Drinks, Soups and recipes so that I can be prepared after surgery. I'm down 4 lbs after 2 weeks, My next goal is 30 minutes of exercise (walking mostly) everyday. I think long term success will depend on this preparation.

I didn’t Join this forum to get a telling off. I was sharing something quite personal and I wasn’t expecting to be lectured.
I can’t imagine that anyone who has had this surgery doesn’t have issues with food, but maybe once you have it done you forget what it’s like to be pre surgery....?
Note to self - don’t be preachy after surgery.

How about taking advice from people who've been through pre and post surgery and have experienced what it's like to be successful and reach their goals.

Are you for real ? I joined this group for support to to support others not to be bullied and to be upset.
Please troll someone else - maybe twitter would be better for you and do not reply to anymore of my posts.
