I have my surgery on July 5th and honestly all of a sudden I’m really getting nervous. Can I really accomplish this one every time I try diets noom hypnosis I fail. Trying to understand the Vitamins do I have to take 5 different ones a day or is there one kind that does it all, I’m confusing myself😞

I am in my 60s, and had been battling being overweight or obese for decades. I tried every diet known to man. With some, I'd lose up to 50 lbs (but most of the time, more like 20). It was just a matter of time before it all came back again. Over and over again - for decades. Surgery was the only thing that worked for me.

the Vitamin regimen is overwhelming at first, but it becomes old hat after awhile. I don't even think about it anymore. I'm pretty much on auto-pilot...

I was overwhelmed with the idea of supplements too but thankfully, my nutritionist gave me links to exactly what I need. I will basically take a 500mg Calcium chew three times a day, a chewable Vitamin D three times a day, a Multivitamin chew once a day, and then 1000 mg B12 once per week. I plan to take the 3 times a day ones with my "meals". Then I'll do the calcium and Vitamin d at bed time, and the B12 on Fridays. She really helped make that part of this process much easier. 😋

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
