Congratulations!!! Are you excited?

I am so nervous. I am starting to ask myself if I actually know what I am getting in too. I have mixed emotions I guess, happy, nervous, scared, sad.

I so identify with that! I cried on the way to the surgery center and questioned my decision. Not the best time to question big life decisions lol. I worked through some of the fear and grief of losing food in the last couple of days. I'm doing SO well now! I'm two weeks post op tomorrow. You can do this! I am here if you need anything. Hugs

Surgery scheduled for tomorrow! I broke out in a bad itchy rash (candida?) And I'm not sure why. It can happen to me when I'm eating alot of sugar, but I'm doing so well on my liquid diet, I can't imagine why. Can It be a bad reaction to my upper GI study? The barium? Or is it the protien drinks? I'm gonna call the doctor today.

Yep! Me too. Had it done on 4th Jan, doubted myself until the moment I went under and two days after. Now, I am 7kgs down, feel more energy than I have for years, and am so very pleased I had it done.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
