Hi all. I just discovered this app and want to say hello. I'm going in on Wednesday morning for VSG. I am not on any specific pre-op diet, but instructed not to gain/overindulge. I'm going to Dr. Atkinson in Las Vegas. I'm a little in shock this is happening in less than 48 hours, but feel as ready as I will ever be. I started the process at the end of May, was supposed to go September/October but was ultimately scheduled for 11/23 because of delays at my PCP. My daughter tested positive for Covid on 11/12, which sent me into quarantine until 11/27. After my negative test and some updated labwork I am back on for 12/23. So it's been a process to say the least. I wish everyone a easy and meaningful journey to the 'losers bench' and look forward to seeing you on the other side.

Welcome. Lots of great information here & lots of helpful advice. So sorry your surgery was delayed but very happy tomorrow is your day.

My surgery was the best decision & I’m sure yours will be too.

Good luck.

PS. Hope your daughter is ok.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
