We had discussed "smashing pumpkins" because that emcompasses fall and halloween (and all things October), but I don't think we've set it in stone. :w00t:

Are you guys getting food etc together already for post surgery? I hate to wait until the last minute but it seems early. Guess I just want to do something to get ready. I am soooo ready!

I haven't been to nutrition class yet so am not sure of the post op steps, but I have spent a couple of hundred dollars trying different Protein Drinks. The GenSoy I took back as disgusting and stinky!!!!

I have bought the clear fruit flavored Isopures as I know that there is a week of Clear Liquids post op and I know we need Protein to heal.

(this will be my 4th time typing this, let's see if I can actually post this)

I've been putting off buying stuff until I went to the nutritionist, which was today. She brought me a bunch of literature and a card to be able to order off the children's menu. I'm going to go through it tonight and compare it to the lists here and get to shopping.

Just got the call, 10/7/08 for me. My daughter is devestated because it's a day after her birthday. I told her we can Celebrate it early, and she said its not the same :rolleyes:. She'll be 13. Maybe that explains ita all.

9/22 I go to the pre-op class...and 9/23 start the liquid diet.

Nice to see theres a few of us here...

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
