Does anyone accept anything their parents do or say when they are 13??? It may not be you. Congrats on the date, Oct 7th is my day too!!! It's my brother's birthday and he has been giving me grief about it (although it's not nearly the same thing)

Hang in there, she'll come around 13 is a horrible age, I remember how nasty I was to my mother.:biggrin:

I am getting so excited just reading stuff on these forums. I hope to be part of this "smashing pumpkin" group!!! Please help me pray that I get approval from the insurance. Friday will be 2 weeks since the info was sent. I have had my psych exam and seen the nutritionist (as required by my surgeon in Statesville, NC).

Now, all there is to do is wait and get a date! I can't wait!!!

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 :thumbup:. 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...

I start my diet on my mom's birthday. She is going to be 59 so I'd say it may not be the age. She seems to be trying to sabotage (sp?) me already. She keeps asking me if I am sure I want to do this. She seems to think this is just like gastric bypass. I have tried to explain it to her, but she is not trying to listen. So I guess I will deal with her cooking and baking pies (she didn't start doing this until I told her I was having surgery). She is really acting like the friends that you lose after losing weight. I don't know if she is just worried about me as her child, or if there is also some jealousy because I will no longer be larger than her. I don't know.

Slim n TN

I definately think there is some jealousy going on. Unfortunately not everyone wants to see you thinner and healthier. Oh, well you have to do what is right for you!

      Saw the surgeon yesterday. He is very pleased with my loss thus far. I am averaging about 10 lbs a month. Turns out my nutritionist and my surgeon have vastly differing ideas on how many calories I should be eating right now. Nut put me on 1K a day. Surgeon said nope, they are wrong, go to 800/day. Too bad I have been following what the Nut advised. I could have lost more weight already. Oh well, I will do it now! I am also going to add another day of working out to help break this stall I have been in since 8/28. I am very happy as this week I was able to get into a size XL shirt and I am wavering on pants sizes, but I am wearing a lot of size 18 that are too big or are getting too big. The inches are still dropping off nicely. I saw my parents for the first time after a long time this past weekend (they live out of state) and my Dad who never says anything gave me some super nice compliments. My sister also did...her words as we were trekking through the airport on a long upward ramp were along the lines of "Before the mind was willing but the body wasn't. Now your mind and body are in sync. Before we would have had to have stopped at least once and now you aren't even phased by this." What a great thing to have someone recognize.

        I was there yesterday too! My appointment was at 1:30pm. And its crazy that they told you 800 calories per day, when they told me 1k yesterday, but I've got my own agenda lol.

      Had my final pre-op appointment today. Next Wednesday my liquid diet starts. It's getting real.

      Has anyone reading this lied about your weight just to get the surgery done?

        The surgeons office will weigh you pre authorization for surgery. How do you lie?

      2. MargoCL

        How can you lie, like @skinnylife stated they weigh you at the surgeon's office and throughout each of your pre-op steps. There is no lying in this, everything is documented, double checked, etc.

      3. Coachthex32

        I had to gain 20 lbs. Makes no sense. High Blood Pressure, almost diabetic, and sleep issues (stop breathing in the night).

      4. Leia

        I dont think I could have if I wanted to, they'd been weighing me regularly for 6+ months before the surgery, and then again the day of.

        What would you normally do?

        Instead of planning a meal, what about an activity that you enjoy.

        If the weather is nice, plan a picnic and explain that you are not eating and will not be providing a cake instead if you wanted you could have birdseed bags that people could use to feed the birds or the ducks in a pond at the park where the picnic would be held. Everyone could bring their own lunch if they wanted to attend and you would only have to make little birdseed bags.

        If nature walks are more your style, do something along those lines and just let everyone know that for your birthday you are planning an activity and not a party. There will be no cake and ice cream if that is what they are looking for, they can just stay home.

        You could ask your friends to join you in a day of caring and you could all volunteer together somewhere either serving at a soup kitchen, helping at a shelter or a children's center or even a senior center.

      I managed to finally break my old school manual Italian espresso maker... Is this a sign?

        Of what?

      2. GreenTealael

        Of what indeed. I thought at first I should give up coffee, nonsense.h Then I thought I should go out for coffee with friends more. Then I thought I should go to Italy for coffee with friends and get a new maker...
