[mention=167550]PerezL84[/mention] good luck to you! And yes, mindset is important. I’ve decided no food funerals. I will start my 2 week liquid diet August 13th and until then, I will eat what I normally eat but I’m making a conscious effort to eat less/smaller portions. And my liquid diet is truly liquid- shakes, Bone Broth and Jello limited to 800 calories a day. I’ve also purchased exercise equipment that will be delivered to my house about 3 weeks post op and I hope to start using at about 4 weeks post op. I started looking into WLS in January and am so thrilled that I got approved (I have BCBS of Michigan).
Best of luck to you as well. NJ here. Going on my pre admission op test (Covid19) next week and I should be all set.

Give it a couple days those Protein Shakes will make you feel full. I called my doctor today because I wasn’t losing weight during the liver shrinking diet and he said don’t worry about, most lose a few pounds, but some don’t. He will still do the surgery regardless.

Hello Everyone,

I just got my surgery date set for August 26th, 2020. I am having the Gastric Bypass surgery. I am feeling a bit nervous but I excited at the same time. I am new here so any tips or general chats are welcome 😃

Congratulation on your surgery date, can I ask how long your entire process took before you got a surgery date

@dwgirl my surgery is scheduled for Aug 11th and I started my process Jun 11th. So, two months in total. My insurance no longer requires the documented months of supervised diets, thankfully! Good luck on your journey!

@wallflower95
Good luck today and keep us posted!
