I have not had my dietary consult yet so I really do not even know what to buy. I was going to google liquid diet to see exactly what that involves. I just wish it was here, I am ready to start this new adventure and put this weight to rest for good.

I have received approval and my surgery date is 7 October. Pre-op 26 Sept and meet with the surgeon on 3 Oct. I was wondering, what is everyone doing to prepare for the surgery? I have an urge to empty my cupboards and fridge since I won't really be eating afterward. Although, I don't really know that since I won't see the nutritionist til my pre-op. I don't know what my pre or post op diet will be so I can't prepare that way - its making me very anxious. I tried to make a to do list tonight but could only think to make sure I'm stocked up on toilet paper and cat food. I've got a decent supply of Atkins shakes but they go quite quickly. Honestly, I'm not just anxious, I'm sort of on the verge of panic - its unreal to me that I am actually going to do this and having a date makes denial impossible.

pandorasmom, I am from ky also. where are you having your surgery at. I am having my surgery on oct 14, and do not know what type of preop diet I will be on for sure. Do some self talk for that panic feeling. From all my reseach it seems more people are happy to have had the surgery then not. So we need to be happy and hopeful that this is a great thing. At this point with myself even a little bit of weight loss will do a ton of good.

      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.)
