Hello SMASHING PUMPKINS! Went to meet my surgeon today, have all preop stuff done and go to the preop class! Now I I have to do is wait patiently:cursing: until Oct 9th. I know it will fly by but wish it was tomorrow. Anyone have high blood pressure every time you go to your surgeon? Still can't figure out the ticker or how to get the smashing pumpkin flag on. Any suggestions?

Hello everyone! I just got off of the phone with my insurance(UHC) and they received my paperwork today. They said that they will be calling me with an answer in 3-5 days!!! I am so anxious! I hope that I get approved. :thumbdown:

If I am approved I will be having my surgery in October somtime also. October is a BIG month for my husband and I. His birthday is the 2nd mine is the 19th and my brothers is the 22nd. Our two year wedding anniversary is on the 28th! I always tease him that we should have a baby in October too!! :crying:

I hope that my insurance helps to make another day in October memorable! :cursing:

I've got my paperwork in and the doctor set a date out long enough for the insurance to get approval back. I'm set for 10-28 though I could go weeks before had if it happens faster. Maybe even the end of September. (only because I've been on a pre-op diet the whole time!) It's been a long road, but it's good to know that we have people we can do this with!

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.

        In the beginning, I was sure that I would go straight to malnutrition hell if I missed even a dose. Turns out, it takes several weeks to months to get yourself in any substantial trouble. My excellent labwork has proven to me that it's not just okay to skip (out of laziness or accidentally) your supplements, but it probably saves you a couple of bucks here and there. Mellow out is my new mantra. Go the best you can with hydration, protein, and your recommended supplements. Trying to live a stress-free life is infinitely more important than your supplements for any given day. (None of this little blabfest was intended for the lovely and ever-knowledgable GT.)
