January 4th for me. I am having some doubts at the moment though xx

Think that’s normal and very natural. Changing your life is difficult. I’m nervous, had my pre op assessment today and my BP was through the roof, purely because I was there. I’m also frightened of being dependent upon people for even a short while. I take comfort knowing they do the surgery 3 times per week and people come through the other side.
speak about your doubts. Bringing them into light might help.

I feel the same way. I also think it's normal to feel this way. I am hoping it's like everyone says it will be, and I will be happy I did this. I am at my PAT right now and am nervous

Hello all, long-time member who has been away for a while. January 8th I am scheduled for a revision lapband to bypass. The band was successful for years and no doubt saved my life but it has run its course and the weight is going back on and the band is maxed out.

Today is day 9 of the Clear Liquids and I finally feel like I can do this!!! Only 5 more days to go. 😎

I've definitely had some moments where I'm doubting, anxious thoughts creeping in, feeling lightheaded and sorry for myself, but I keep walking, swimming, doing laundry, playing games on my ipad, and journaling/coloring. Listening to music helps a lot, and weirdly enough, cooking meals for my family helps but I've been cooking them meals for years that I can't eat so it isn't the same I guess. Right now my lovely husband is sitting across the room eating Doritos and I had a moment of irritability about that but I'm the one who put the order in at the grocery store🤣

Well done. Sounds like you’ve got it cracked. I’d have had the same reaction to a Dorito chomping husband.
My work is full of food. And I mean FULL. New Year will be even worse, and I’m on duty 1st, 2nd and 3rd. I will have the resolve to resist as it’s a long game but I shall be glad when it’s over.

      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.
