Recommended Posts

I would never tell anyone it is ok not to follow their surgeon's directions.

I had a long talk with my surgeon and since I wanted to survive the surgery in the best possible shape, I followed his directions. It was only for six weeks and I survived just fine.

If you feel you can't survive without your stomach being full, then perhaps you should consider counseling for a while prior to getting a band.

It's your health and your responsibility.

I want to thank everyone for all the great advice/opinions. Tommorrow is my big day. I forgot to mention that I work a 2nd job at the local Dairy Queen. I never touched a drop of food or ice cream. I knew I could do it!!!! yaaa hooooo. I really cracked down the past five days and have lost almost 10 lbs. I'm now 237lbs @ 5'3. Everyone keeps asking if I'm nervous, but I'm actually so excited to NOT BE HUNGRY after starving the past 2 weeks!!!!

All went well. Although I have had many days doubting I'll lose weight. I lost the first 3 weeks, that was 3 weeks ago. I'm stuck at 223 for the past month. And I was very niave thinking I wouldn't be hungry. I think I am more hungry than I was before. I've only had 1 fill of 2cc's so I have little to no restriction. I've realized how slow of a process this actually is. But I'm sticking it out and looking forward to being under 200. That is my goal for the summer.

Stick with it. You can do it. You still sound real postive. I can't have it done until November. I have to go through a 5 month diet first. I saw a lady the other day that had it done the last of the year and she was so happy with how she was losing. Please keep me posted on how you are doing. i'm counting the days for me.

My doctor says he doesn't put people on a preop diet. He wants you to start eating healthier if you haven't been doing so in the past and if you are over 50 BMI he wants you to get to 50 or lower. Right now I'm teetering at 51 so I don't have to lose a whole lot to get to 50. I think my body knows I'm trying to lose that 10 lbs and it's not cooperating. :cursing: I've been trying to change my eating habits gradually for a while now so even if he did put me on one I think I would do fine. Actually I wish he would so atleast I would have something to go on.

Do you knowyour surgery date yet? That's great that you don't have to be on a diet.

No not yet. I have another psych eval and then I can meet with my surgeon. After all the pre op tests are done then I can meet with him again to get my surgery date. From what I've been told I should be looking at a date in mid to late July. I can't wait until I finally get that date. I can't believe I'm excited about an impending surgery. :smile: Go figure. :angry:

My concern about cheating on the pre-op diet is this:

If you are already cheating, how will you be after you are banded? I am not SAYING you will cheat then. I am just asking you to take a long look inside yourself. We will all have our struggles, me included.

I have been asking myself the same thing just to make sure. I have been confronting "favorite" foods and really looking at how I will face them later.

For me, it has become a choice to live or die. My BMI is "only" 40. I carry my weight well and most would never guess my weight to be as high as it is. I can wear "thinner girl" clothes even today. BUT, I have trouble breathing when I sleep, my joints hurt, my blood pressure is slowly rising. All these things are because of eating the wrong way.

I have chosen to learn to live a different way. To me it is truly a different journey on a different path. I will follow the rules because I want to be healthy. I want to live a long long life.

Just stop and take a good look inside and ask yourself why you are being banded and that will help you to not cheat. Trust what is moving you toward this surgery and it will become easier as you go.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
