December surgery buddies



Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm new to this forum and I'm super nervous and excited about my VSG journey. I started my journey on May 6th and yesterday I received a surgery date..December 8th.

Looking for some ideas on how to explain the procedure to my children. I'm open to any suggestions you guys may have.

Hi there, I'm new as well. My surgery is scheduled for December 22nd. I'm scared, nervous and excited. You'll have to keep us posted post surgery. I have my appointment with a dietitian tomorrow. Hope you find answers. I love this forum.

I didn't expect to feel this nervous, as I have been working towards this for a long time.

That's awesome! We'll have to keep each other encouraged.

Everyone is telling me to start taking pre-surgery photos now to document my progress afterwards. Not looking forward to that 😕

Me! 🙋‍♀️

Surgery scheduled for 12/6. Have to start my pre-op liquid diet on Thanksgiving. I guess I can sacrifice one holiday! Excited to finally move forward but sometimes reading some of these boards end up making me feel more nervous!

      Keep going. I guess I'm experiencing a stall almost 6 weeks out. Keep going.

      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!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      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 🥲
