I'm the day before you, though I'm a sleever, not a bypasser. I had my upper GI, EKG, chest x-ray, and bloodwork last week and I have my final appointment with my PCP on Thursday to clear me for surgery. Tomorrow is nearly-all-liquids diet for a week (my choice, not a requirement, but applauded by my surgeon). I am RIGHT THERE with you on the anxiety! It's been ramping up bigtime. That's why I've been posting like a caffeinated squirrel on here.

I'm the 13th... and I'm so anxious... It got really bad yesterday morning. I have been preparing since January and I don't want to back out, but I'm just a ball of nerves.

I just had my pre-op appointment with my Dr....they are moving sleeve patients to outpatient surgery, but there's a chance that my bypass will have to be rescheduled....I'm going to be so devastated!!!! I've even had 3 Covid shots!!!!

I was just informed this morning that mine may have to be postponed due to Covid.....and if I haven't heard from them by Thursday of this week to give them a call.

That's awful. I hope that doesn't happen to you! I've heard of that happening to people a lot recently. I'm hoping mine won't be cancelled due to COVID. Our numbers aren't too bad here in Boston.

Oh no... here's hoping you can squeak by and get it done! I'm nervous too but our county posts the numbers every day and they've started to level off so hopefully I'm in the clear.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
