February 2021 bypassers?



Recommended Posts

Feb 2 is my date. I am doing the pre-op diet and have lost 10 lbs. Talked to the anesthesiologist yesterday and have my COVID test lined up early on the 1st. I got some library books to keep me easy in the days afterward.

Welcome @Pkump and @BostonRiley!!

Congrats on the weight loss so far @Pkump!! Amazing!! I am crossing my fingers I will have similar results! Only a few days to go! I will be crossing all my digits for you!

@BostonRiley I think you have the closest date to mine (2/22)!!! Hurry up and wait, right?! When do you start your preop diet? I am going in for my last informational meeting on Wednesday... eeek! I start the diet on 2/8. I am assuming I will get all the details on Wednesday.

I am clearly over-preparing (severe fear of the unknown)... my current buys:

@TreeTrunks Thank you for the welcome! I start my preop diet on 2/5, so only a few more days to go. I feel like I have so many appointments between now and the 19th. I haven't bought too much stuff as I'm afraid to. I did buy some templates on Etsy to track my Water in take, my weight by the week and a sheet for my measurements. My boyfriend helped me last night take a bunch of before photos for me to put in my weight loss journal. I am right there with you with the overthinking! We will get through this though!

Oooh! Can you send me the links. I've created my own with a dot journal, but am always looking for ideas!

I need to get my husband to do this...or start taking some in front of the mirror! I've been avoiding it...

Thank you! I have one more day of liquids including Protein Shakes and Soup and then the 24 hours prior just Water. Today the preop diet was much more manageable. I still need to take before pictures and pack. I'm excited and trying to keep fear of the unknown down. I overthink and overplan and this forum has helped me not thinking I'm crazy 🙃
