My surgery date is April 19th... I am pretty nervous, but confident that this is the right move for me.

Me too!!! I started my liquid diet today. Nervous is an understatement but also excited because I know its the right thing for me.

I had my surgery on April 1st. The 1st week was tough but each day gets easier! I’m ready to get out of the liquid stage.

Congrats!! week 1 is behind you now :) Do you have another week of liquids or are you moving on to pureed foods?

How has everyone gone for goal setting?

They say you have to set SMART goals






And they also say not to focus on scale victories. That's a challenge for me! Numbers make such an obvious target.

So I've chosen some targets like

Do 20 minutes on the stationary bike, twice a week by May 19.

Drop 10 kg by June 19.

Do 1 pullup by July 19. And do a DXA sscanand reward myself with $100 per bf% dropped.

Turn down the CPAP by August 19.

By February 19 I want to fit into size 36 jeans.

Has anyone got some good targets sorted out?

        Have a great Wednesday too! Sorry you're hungry all the time, I'm pretty much the same..and I'm sick of eating the same food all the time.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
