Anyone for September 2020?



Recommended Posts

Mine is 9/03. So my Oreos diet is just low carb then two days before liquids only. I’m reading on here people have to do a week to two of straight liquids. I’m a little concerned?

My nutritionist said every doctor us different. She started to tell me one doctor's diet then she said his name and I was like that's not my doctor lol. THEN, she told me my doctor wanted 2 WEEKS of only fluids. I was like sorry I said anything. LOL. Don't worry. Whatever your doctor said. :) Good luck.

How come we can’t have caffeine on the liquid diet? I’m 3 days on liquid diet & a horrible headache just started. How long does it usually last? I got really sick in the hot sun securing everything for Hurricane Laura, then anxiety as it became a category 4. Not having coffee is harder for me than all liquid diet (for now). Excited & scared for the 8th! Glad I found y’all to talk about our surgeries. Good luck on yours!

September 10th here! I'm celebrating my (September) birthday this weekend since I'll be a couple of days post-op on my actual birthday.

Good luck everyone!

@MagentaMom great! We’re surgery siblings now! You’re the ONLY person I’ve seen with our date🎉🎉🎉 I thought I’d never get a surgery sis 😂 . I’m going after labor day and my Son’s birthday so that I can enjoy the festivities. Maybe one last ice cream cone😆 I heard it makes you nauseous after vsg and ice cream is my favorite! Im looking forward to healthier favorites after surgery.

where are you having your surgery done?

I knowwww. I am just so head hungry. I have had all my Protein and now I just wish I could go to bed so I’m not around food but...kids. Sigh. I may sneak a lean chicken breast for dinner tomorrow night and some steamed broccoli.

YES. My surgery is on Wednesday and I feel like I am starving and I am so tired! I have lost 15lbs so far. Today I woke up from a dream about a sub sandwich. I am hungry, yet I feel like I can barely choke down these Protein Shakes. I make my own with pea Protein Powder, but now I am so over them.

SO REAL! I have lost 14 pounds on this diet in the last 7 days, I'd be shocked to see any more significant weight loss but who knows...either way, I am constantly hungry..... blarrrrgh.

        Just keep in high spirits. I'm 9 weeks post op and I'm glad I did it. Do you have a surgery date?

      2. Neensyb

        7 weeks post op here. Take one day at a time.

      It's been so long since I came here and I'm disappointed in myself for that, it's such a wonderful forum with amazing people. 
      But I'm back with exciting news: I had my surgery in August of 2019, and I met my goal of 180 by the fall of 2020! And even better: as of today I've far surpassed my initial goal and am now at 156lbs!
      In hindsight, I made the goal of 180 never dreaming I would be able to go below that, and yet, in the back of my mind I always knew that somewhere in the 150s would be the absolute ideal for me, I just never thought that would be a possibility, even with this surgery. So this is a dream come true for me!
      The mind is a very powerful machine, and I guess my mind clearly said "we're not done here" when I got to 180. I didn't even try to get below it, to be perfectly honest - it took no effort on my part, the weight just kept (keeps?) melting off of me. 
      That sounds like the worst kind of humblebrag, almost cringe-level - but I truly don't mean it that way. It's just that I'm just completely gobsmacked! I never in a million years expected this to happen!
      More good news: I started exercising with a program I'm obsessed with called Essentrics last October - heck, I've only missed a handful of days since I started. I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd be so excited about working out, that it would be the highlight of my day, even. But it is! I always haaaated exercise! But this program is downright enjoyable and I always feel something akin to euphoria at the end of my workouts. That's not an exaggeration. It's possible that doing this is why I kept losing weight, but I'm not sure, because it's not cardio-heavy at all...it's more like just stretching and moving your body, I guess kinda like a more "active" form of yoga, but NOT yoga, it's hard to describe honestly. Nothing fancy, it just really feels good for my body, I can't say enough about it. I can't imagine it burns that many calories since there is very little cardio involved, but I don't know because I don't do math and that's that lol.
      But now I have a new goal, and it's a big one: get back to a nutritious, healthy diet (maintenance I mean, not active weight loss). I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I have to be brutally honest with myself, and this is the ideal place to do it - the fact is, my diet SUCKS. I haven't even tried to eat healthily for quite awhile now. I'm so ashamed of myself just typing that out, but I need to face it and admit it to myself before I can fix it.
      I haven't participated on this forum for way too long, and that was a mistake. This forum is amazing and filled with such great people who always inspired me so much!
      So now I'm back because, even though I'm at my goal, the fact is, this is a lifelong journey - it's not just the weight loss part, it's so much more than that. I need help getting my diet back on track. I need the inspiration and excellent advice I always found here. Just because I'm at goal doesn't mean I'm done - far from it.
      So although I'm embarrassed that my diet (currently!) sucks, I can at least give myself credit for finally admitting it and setting my intention to change that. Being at goal weight does NOT mean I'm healthy. It's great that I'm exercising, but if I'm not giving my body the nutrition it needs, then I'm only hurting myself. If I took the giant step of having bariatric surgery, I owe it to myself to follow through with the WHY I did it - which was to become healthy again - and that is sooo much more than a number on the scale.
      I'm ready to make the changes necessary to get myself into the healthiest state possible. I won't be perfect, nobody is, but it's time for me to truly commit to giving my body the healthy nutrition it deserves as best as I can. I don't know where to start though, it's like I need an entire education about it. But I'm ready and willing to learn.
      I'm so happy to be back here because I know that inspiration is found everywhere here in this forum.

      I feel like a sponge soaked with water this weekend. Noticed it yesterday already, also today. TMI I guess but this feeling of having peed and then this strange feeling in the bladder that lasts for a while - like you still have to pee.
