Crossing the fingers that I can get a surgery date in January. I have a pre-op appointment on the 17th and hope to get my date then! Super excited for this opportunity.

Unfortunately due to COVID, all bariatric surgeries have been postponed with my surgeon. Wishing all those who are getting surgery in January all the best! Kick butt!!!!!

Oh no! I’m glad it’s still on though!




Today is the first day that I’ve felt like myself, and I’m up doing laundry and things.




The biggest thing that I can say, and I know everyone says it, is STAY HYDRATED. I missed my hydration goal a few times and had to go get an IV to replies what I lost, and I didn’t realize how bad I felt till I was hydrated again. The slow sip sip sips were killing me, so I’m not chugging Water, but I’m taking normal drinks and that seems to be working so much better for me.




EDIT: I don’t know about other’s, but the absolute worst pain for me, for about 4 days out was the CO2 gas stuck in my chest. It feels awful, but it will pass!


Day 2 post op the gas is still causing some pain I’ve been burping a lot and that’s been helping.

Tomorrow is surgery day! I'm super nervous and excited all at once. I almost had to postpone as my hubby has covid but my test came back negative and the surgeon said he's not concerned since I'm vaccinated. Have to be to the hospital at 5:15am wish me luck!

Happy new year to you all and many blessings 🥰

What Bariatric Vitamins are you all planning to take.


I’m going to try the Bariatric Fusion capsule. My surgeon gave me samples but I can’t start them until back on regular diet.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
