I am sorry to hear about the folks who had their surgies cancelled. I worry it may happen to many of us, as this month progresses..Crossing my fingers. Hang in there........

I hear may foks have two weeks of liquid diet. my surgeon and dietician has a reduced preop menu but not all liquids. 6oz of cook meet all white. 2 servings of vegetables with 3 meals and can have 3 more servings of fruits and vegetables. Perhaps folks that are cancelled can try that to stay on track. ( suggestion)\

I have my date the 21st I am so excited and scared.have any of you asked yourself.Why couldnt I do this without surgery?

I heard of all the cancellations and got worried, but have been assured by my surgeon that I am good to go. He stated he was fixing a hernia at the same time as the Gastric Bypass, so I won't be cancelled. 11 more days till surgery, getting excited to start this journey. The Pre-Op is not so bad when I think about it one day at a time and make the decision everyday to stay on track. Good luck to all. Keep Smiling.

Scheduled for RNY on July 8th. Start my liquid diet on June 24th, which I'm dreading 😬 My birthday is July 3rd, so I'm slightly bummed about not being able to do my usual dinner and cake, but that's part of the journey. Makes me wonder where I'll be at for my birthday next year. I'm so nervous, but so excited at the same time!

Happy birthday!

Hi All...new here..from Australia

Booked in 23 July 2020 for sleeve

Commence the 2 week pre diet Thursday....so much want to turn my life around but I'm scared as hell which I'm sure is normal.

I've had major bowel operations so i cant see it can be worse than that!.

Live on my own but still hoping i cant find support

I have employed a consultant who does this stuff and having weekly meetings with her which is great.

First day of bowel prep and 24 ounces in and I am regretting all of my life choices. I made the choice to not add Crystal Light to the Golytely and think I made a mistake. I was concerned about ruining Crystal Light for me for life if I did it The lemon flavor packet the pharmacy included is not even remotely sufficient.

Also, my lap band is making this process take longer because I can't do 8 ounces every 10 minutes.

Oh...and this is officially my worst birthday ever.

There is nothing “lyte” about golytely. That stuff is a bummer. Strange on the bowel prep as well. I don’t know if any of the rest of us have/had to do that. Try to remember this is part of the best birthday gift you will ever give yourself. Sending good vibes, positive thoughts, and wishes for a great year ahead on this less than stellar birthday!

My new date is July 22nd! My original date was May 18th but they canceled the day of my preop :(

I was provided that date two months prior and they flew by. Here I am waiting another two months and hoping it fly's by again! :)

Wow that’s my birthday lol they offered me July 21 as a surgery date but I turned it down. Now I’m wishing I had took it the sooner the better because all this waiting is giving me anxiety. I just don’t want them to cancel because if coronavirus before the end of this month

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
