November 2020 sleevers



Recommended Posts

I start my 2 week pre-op diet on the 20th. It is all liquids and two Snacks (an egg or yogurt). My birthday is on the 25th. This year will be booze and cake free. I am celebrating a new me! I can't wait until Nov 3. That is the first day of my new life.
Happy early birthday! Mine is shortly after yours, and my surgery is the 2nd of November. Great birthday presents, huh? [emoji16]

Any fellow Nov sleevers care to share their pre-op diet? My surgeon just told me to lose 10 lbs before surgery, however in the paperwork it says 10-14 days clear liquid diet with foods, drinks and sample menus. I’ve got an upcoming appointment with the dietician where I’m sure I’ll get clarity. I was just wondering what everyone else was doing, or if you even knew.
I don't start mine until the 23rd, and the dietician told me to not start earlier (noooo problem! LOL) The paperwork is in the other room, but from what I remember, it's low carb, low calorie. Some foods, but not much. I'm glad it isn't liquids only, like a lot of folks'. I dunno how you all survive on that (afterward, sure... Before? [emoji15])

I’m scheduled for Nov 6!! So excited and a little nervous 😬 I’m going to Mexico. What are you all doing to get ready now?

I switched to Decaf, I’m consciously trying to chew things thoroughly (not as easy as it seems), and I have increased my walking distance and times. I had over 11,000 steps Saturday, but then felt I needed a day of rest Today I did just under 6000 steps in an hour walk, and will probably go out again later, or maybe ride my bike to get some more activity. I don’t get my pre-op diet until next week.

I've been trying to cut out all caffeine, which has been a struggle. I'm trying to get motivated to walk more and exercise. I've also started incorporating shakes at least one meal a day and drinking more Water. I've noticed it the last week I'm beginning to mourn the things I won't be able to eat!! That hasn't been fun.

I hear ya! I am a serious Diet Coke addict. I’m trying to slow down now before I have to go cold turkey!

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
