I'm new here. My bypass is scheduled for Aug 13. I'm in the metro Atlanta area and a mom of 3.i have a hard time keeping up with them. I'm on liquid diet now and very hungry. My ultimate goal is to ride a roller coaster. Or all the roller coasters. Or go to a Water park and not be embarrassed. I have a dress from my 24th birthday. If I ever get back to it, I will cry.




Anyone else nearby or having the same surgery or day? Wouldn't it be crazy to find someone at the same hospital at the same time? 😜


Yes I am having a Bypass the same day! Going to be having my procedure done in Cedar Park Texas 😊

Today is the day lol I am excited can’t wait to get started with my new and healthier life style!!! It will be hard the first few weeks but well worth it. When I first started this journey back in March I was 355 and today I am down to 315 and steadily dropping which is awesome soon I will be at my goal weight and healthy and fit for myself and my son. I pray that my surgery goes well today.

So to those who have completed their procedure and are on their first 2 week liquid diet, how are you all feeling? Are you able to walk without any pain? Do you feel hungry at all? Any weight loss (if surgery was done 1 week of August)?

I am a newbee here. My surgery is scheduled for Aug 19th. My current weight is 235 and I am on the liver reduction diet. My Doctor is Dr Toledo in Pueblo Colorado. I have jumped thru hoops since May doing all the tests and things he wanted. I am 69 yrs old September 22 I will be 70. I started dieting in August 2019 as I could not breathe. I was at 270 lbs. I am on O2 now and use a cpap machine at night. I have heart failure and my Cardiologist recommended the surgery for my heart to get better. Wish me luck as I am very nervous about the surgery.

The liver shrinkage diet is not too hard for me as Dr Toledo has me eating/drinking a Premire Protein Drink at 8am, 10am I have a boiled egg, 12p I have another Protein drink, at 2pm I have 40z of sardine or sometimes 5 boiled shrimp, 4pm I have 4 oz of lean meat or fish with one cup of steamed carrots or broccoli and at 6pm I have another Protein drink. I go to bed at 9.

Sometimes I start thinking since I am doing well on the diet maybe I can not have the surgery but then I thought that once before and cancelled the surgery and ended up at 270. So I know I have to have the surgery.

So I'm scheduled for August 17. I'm on day 5 of my liquid diet. Today is my hardest day so far was pretty hungry. My diet is completely liquid/protein shakes. I made homemade broth before I started and that has saved me. costco roasted chickens are awesome for broth because the fat is roasted off. I basically recooked them in a roaster w/veggies/seasonings and a lot of Water for broth. Froze the baggies of broth in 1 and 2 cup portions and very soft chicken for my puree stage, also froze the veggies I'm going to puree them for gazpacho or something. I bought a few of the Kettle and Fire bone broths because they are suppose to be really high quality but having a hard time getting those down. I'm using the Premier Protein shakes but found I really liked the Fairlife better and I had ordered some Unjury Protein Powder and with the Fairlife Protein low-fat milk that's the best shakes so far. The Protein2o water is the best. I ordered 2 cases of the grape from Amazon because I couldn't find it in the stores. I'm sort of in the I can't believe it's really happening stage as I started my journey since November of 2019 and got stuck in the COVID backlash. I'm a little nervous to take the COVID test 3 days before surgery. I feel great but worry about that Asymptomatic stuff that would really set me back. But we'll see.....
