Meeeeeee!! I’m booked for March 22nd too! Last time I booked I got cold feet and backed out (as it turns out it would have gotten cancelled anyway because we went into a 4 month lockdown that week) but this time I feel more confident and comfortable with my decision so it’s going ahead.
I’m starting a low carb diet this weekend until the day before surgery when it’s a liquid diet only for 24 hours. I’m starting from a “lower” BMI (26.6) and all my bloods looked great so my surgeon said I didn’t have to do the 2 week Meal Replacement diet thank goodness!

Where abouts are you having your surgery? I’m in Melbourne, Australia 🇦🇺

I’m in Los Angeles! My surgery was initially for December 14 but it was canceled with the Covid surge.. canceled like literally a few days before I was supposed to go in 😢. I was so desperate actually found a doctor in another state and almost had it there but a few days before that surgery my doctor here in Los Angeles called and said that hospitals are open again for non emergency surgeries! So I’m relieved 😌 my liquid diet is two weeks (according to the lady at my surgeons office)although my dietitian said to do one week. So I’m not looking forward to having to do all that again

I am almost with ya. I’m March 24th.

arrington0711 I am close by. I’m in Orange County.

I went through Kaiser so I had to do months and months of classes. Surgeries were canceled right when I finished in December and I am FINALLY moving along again. I’m lucky that I continued to lose. I have the really strict dr and I’ve heard he will not schedule you if you gain weight 😬

GM Everyone! I’m scheduled for bypass this morning at 9 and I’m super nervous as this is my 2nd time around...my sleeve in 2018 wasn’t successful. I’m wishing you all a speedy and safe surgery and recovery! I’m looking forward to OUR progress this year! ☺️
