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.

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!

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
