Hello, everyone this is my first time here. So happy I found this group. I am in the home stretch. My surgery is November 23. Any tips????

Give yourself grace and patience also don't do too much to fast. I had surgery on the 29th and I'm struggling I had to go back to work after a week because I haven't been on my job long enough for FMLA *eye roll* and also I didn't have enough vacation time. Whatever time you can take off use it!

Congrats! My advice: this journey is much more about the mental/emotional than it is the physical. Barring really nasty complications, the physical end of the surgery will be fine, especially once you are recovered. But the mental/emotional aspects will be with you for the rest of your life.

You're making a HUGE change, so it's okay to be nervous about it! Don't be surprised if you struggle, and don't feel bad when you inevitably do. Look at this amazing community you found that you can reach out to when you need an understanding friend! This is going to be an amazing change your body will thank you for later.

You had major surgery recently. Your alway dehydrated and staving your body in a sense. It will take several month to feel good. Honestly, the first 6 were hell. The next 3 weren't as bad, and the last 3 were somewhat closer to normal. Your body is never going to be "normal" again. There are going to be many days where you will question yourself on why you did this and other days when you look in the mirror and you know why :) it's not the easy way out. But, it is worth it in the end, I promise!

I had my surgery on 11/8 and had regrets before and after the surgery but positive thinking only! Onwards and forwards only. It’s definitely a lifestyle change and I’m coping day by day. I also learned that journaling your intake and following a schedule helps to keep me hydrated.

Congratulations in advance but if you have thoughts now, talk to a behavioral therapist. You still have time. Best wishes!

      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 🥲

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

        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.
