I'm the 18th as well!

I'm very excited but also a bit nervous. Still going back and forth wether this is the right choice for me.
I know I'll probably never lose the weight without the surgery, but I'm afraid I'll fall back into old habits after having the surgery. Is anybody else having these doubt/concerns?

Hey, Surgery Sibling! I keep telling myself it's mind over matter. We all have to address our relationship with food and decide what/who we want to be going forward. It's normal to have concerns but think positive! Stay strong! You got this!

I will be starting my liver shrink diet in a few days. I am excited and freaking out at the same time! I keep thinking of foods that I need to eat because I won’t be eating them anymore after the surgery. I have to keep bringing myself back to focusing on getting healthy rather than the food. I am both ready and nervous!

Congrats! I am on the pre-op diet now but I must say, I had the best food funeral! 🙂

Anybody else getting cold feet?

I was not loosing weight anymore on the pre-op plan because I was thinking about how loosing all this weight is making me go through peri-menopause again. (I had it bad with arthritis aches, sweating, Migraines, and moodiness.). I was thinking that I’m paying and working hard to go through it again.

Then I had an asthma attack and couldn’t sleep for three nights in a row. Finally my epiphany happened and I remembered that the terrible asthma is why I want to be healthy. The pre-op plan reduces inflammation and helps keep asthma away! Peri-menopause is temporarily, I want to see my son grow up. I’m back on track.

What is keeping you on track?

Good for you! Just the thought of being healthy is keeping me on track. I have so many comorbidities and I'm hoping to get off my medicine, or even decrease my dosage. I've been unhealthy so long that I'm not comfortable in my own skin. Hopefully, when the weight comes off and I feel physically better, I can get into trying new things.

Hi! That doesn’t seem right… where are you getting it done?? The point of a pre-op is to shrink your liver… 🙁

      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.
