I start today! I get two Protein Shakes plus one carb-free meal per day. I actually did a trial run of it last month, and it got really easy after the first couple of days. Plus I lost 18 lbs. over three weeks. You got this!

WOW! Good Job!! 18lbs!!! I hope you have the same luck this time. . and so smart of you to do that. I, on the other hand, have not been as disciplined. I've been focusing on cutting out the caffeine and this week, cutting out the sugar.

UGH!!! My surgeons office just called. My Jan 4 RNY procedure is canceled until further notice thanks to non-vaccinated idiots taking up all the hospital space.

This is very frustrating.

Do you mind sharing the location? since I am also worried about my 1/3 surgery getting canceled and I am starting my pre-op diet next week. Don't want to go on diet for nothing.

I hope so too - for your sake. I was just about to start my pre-preop diet today. Really start to get down to it a little ahead of when I was supposed to start on the 20th when I got the call. We're leaving for a 10 day vacation tomorrow though, so all is not lost. I can eat real food now.

I am scheduled January 11th, but knowing that I may likely be cancelled thanks to COVID and short staff, but at least I have a chance at having it Jan 11th. I am in Syracuse NY. They were putting off scheduling me because everything keeps getting cancelled, but I told them I would rather have a chance than nothing at all. I should have had mine in November :-(

It seems there are two threads about January surgery,that´s what I wrote:

My surgery (Jan 3rd) it´s still moving on but I´ll do my pre-op appointment online instead of in-person, so the things are changing too here in Virginia and I´m worried that I the end they can call my surgery off.

Cross fingers!

Just had my pre- anesthesia appointment and asked about possible postponing. As of now if it it scheduled for Jan they are proceeding but unfortunately things can change. So it’s like we are all in limbo and hoping it doesn’t get cancelled at the last minute.

      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.
