Welcome Steve. I think you made the right decision. I've said for months (even before surgery) that my only regret was not deciding to do this sooner.
The pre-op and post-op diets suck some, but I just tell myself to keep my eyes on the prize. It's going to be worth it.
Thanks Kevin! Eye of the prize indeed

Thank you for the encouragement! I was 180 when I graduated highschool And it seems like every 10 lb I kept saying it's no big deal I'll lose it. Well, @ 370 and about 15 years later it's time to face reality and I need another tool in my metaphorical box . Would you say it's difficult to eat large amounts now with the Sleeve? I have a bad habit of night time binging .

Absolutely will help with the amount of food you eat should you night binge! 😂 The temptation will still come because you have to retrain your brain but it will get easier. You have to keep those foods out of the house though for awhile until you build up good willpower once you get released for regular foods. I have the same issue too! My stomach seems to go crazy at night for some reason. Usually I choose a Protein Shake or tea. I do sometimes give in though but not much.

Did your surgeon notice you "cheated"?

I was forthright about it. Don't know if he would have noticed otherwise.

Welcome Steve. This is a very informational forum and lots of nice ppl here willing to help.

As far as the pre op diet yep that can be a rough one but after the 4th day for me I was doing good, not as crabby less hungry and I didnt have a problem getting through the next week and then it was surgery time. Set your eyes on the prize and you will do just fine ;)

      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
