I was nervous that I would do the surgery and everyone would know I did it and I would still fail yet again. Of course I didn’t. I have lost 54 pounds and still losing slowly but surely. It’s normal to have reservations though.

Thank you! Having some confusion with this app. I keep getting pop-ups and emails about getting 15% off supplements

Im pretty sure i have everything i need thru the Medical University pharmacy where I'll have surgery. Is buying stuff here required to continue to be part of the group? I hope not!

No. No purchase is necessary.

Hi Leslie, welcome to BP. I have been on the emotional rollercoaster (my surgery is in... uh... 36 hours) and it is totally normal. But honestly, finding this site has been a lifeline for me, I would almost certainly have chickened out otherwise.

Mine's in 8 days too, Leslie, and likewise, my nerves are starting to kick in. I'm also not afraid of the surgery, I think it's the life change after. A big life change and a big change being made to my body itself. It's no small thing! The food-addict bit of my brain is having a little last-gasp flail knowing things won't be the same ever again, but it's thankfully being drowned out by the rest of mind that's so very ready for this.

I'm picking triumphant, upbeat songs on spotify and playing them on repeat. Along with keeping busy, it helps!

Same, same. I have "Tarantella Nova" on full blast so I can dance around to it and shake off the doubt. (Yes, my musical taste is eclectic, but I love Mimmo Cavallaro.)

Nice! My music taste is a mad whirl too. I tend to get something daft stuck in my head that makes me laugh and so I just roll with it. Nerves seem to have the effect of making me a little loopy, which is honestly preferable to panic. Self-preservation kicking in there!

I'm always nervous before surgeries, even though at this point I should be a seasoned vet! I think it's totally normal!,

It's good to know we'll be done on the same day. Great resource for both us. I'm busy slugging down soda every minute of every day And yes, Spotify always!

Just got your message! Tomorrow or Wednesday? I'm really enjoying being open with my emotions, rather than the standard, "Me? Oh, I'm fine."

Like buyer's remorse? 4 hours of preop clearance yesterday! All set to go in 7 days. Praying for no complications for any of us♡

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      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 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      2. UniquelyMe28

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      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.
