I finally got my date! August 18th! It took three months to jump through all the hoops, but finally I got the call with the date :D I changed from the sleeve to the bypass due to a few minor complications with acid. I feel strong about my decision and I'm super excited to move forward.

My date is August 1st! So excited to start this new journey. My required insurance visits were three months long as well.

Fortunately, my insurance did not make me have to lose a ton of weight prior some like plans. But I'm working on losing as much as I can prior to the surgery with a low carb Keto diet

Congratulations! I'm one week out from my reux-en-y surgery and I couldn't be happier. The pain is a lot less than I expected. I really only feel just comfort in one of my small laparoscopic incisions. It's like a brand new beginning.

I’ve had quite a journey already and I haven’t had surgery yet! I was suppose to have surgery in November. Then covid shut surgeries down at my hospital. I didn’t get another date until June 8th. That was rescheduled for June 22nd. So, the night before my surgery on June 21st the hospital called me at 10:16 at night to say that my surgery was canceled due to my surgeon getting covid! So, my new date is August 10th. Phew! My very first doctor appointment was June 3rd of LAST year! Haha! I’m having gastric bypass with hiatal hernia repair.

I can't believe how fast time is flying! I created a countdown timer until my surgery and I often forget how many days are left. It won't be long until I'm 30 days out. I'm nervousxcited! But this week I finalize all my supplements, liquids, and support items so I can be prepared for any last minutes. I started EFT tapping on successful Pre-Op surgery to help relieve the jitters and to continue relearning my new relationship with food. I no longer want food to be the center of my life, just a part of it :)

OMG! What an emotional roller coaster! Maybe one way to look at it is that the universe is ensuring you have the perfect staff in their perfect health so you will have a flawless surgery! :)

How are you feeling this week? Any new changes? Any challenges that you are having? I'm a little concerned about nutrient absorption, so curious as to how things are going. :D

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
