  1. 2 days out update

    Hi friends!
    Well, I wanted to tell you all how well I am doing! I had my surgery at Lehigh Valley Hospital by Dr. Richard Borse and it couldn't have gone any better! All the nurses were so kind and understanding. They helped me relax during the pre-op phase from 5 to 7:30 am which is when I had to be there and what time the surgery was (I was first one of the day). I just kept thinking of how everyone here and the 4 people I know kept saying that it was the best thing they ever did. I trusted ...
  2. Anyone heavier post-op?

    Hi all,
    My surgery on Fri August 4th went smoothly. I got home yesterday at 11 am. My question is this....pre-op I weighed 275lbs and this morning I weigh 282.2! Does gas weigh that much??? I had some Won Ton soup last night at 7 ( minus wontons , of course) maybe it was the salt in that. My family ordered take out and I got soup and didn't feel left out at all! Good thing I have always loved soup. Of course I know the scale will come down. I was just surprised at the number is all. I I ...
  3. Tomorrow is my day!!

    Hi all,
    We'll I made it through the pre-op diet! Down about 15 LBS IN 2 weeks! It was hard and yes I cheated a little but, with only bites of food. Not hog wild! I am SO tired of thinking about this procedure and being nervous! I am at "whatever". I have to be at the hospital that is 50 minutes away, at 5:00 AM!!! I am the first one scheduled tomorrow!! Yeah!!! I won't have to worry all day but I will get to recuperate all day! The time is OK. I wouldn't be able to sleep tonight ...
  4. Hunger is under control!

    I am so thankful I found this website! I have gotten so much helpful information and support! I am no longer hungry! It is a mental battle for sure. Yesterday I stayed on my pre-op diet all day. 5 o'clock is my trouble time. Home from work and I just want to dive right in to mindless munching. Yesterday I fixed some Unjury chicken soup and it was Amazing! I have discovered that I prefer a warm savory mug of "soup" for a meal replacement rather than the sweet shakes. I actually feel like ...
  5. I'm doing much better!

    Thanks to those who responded to my last post. I did great on my pre-op diet yesterday! I have the right mindset now! It makes better sense to me now. I stayed busy yesterday and out of the kitchen. I told my family they have to be responsible for getting their own dinners. (They are adults) I advocated for myself and explained that I needed to concentrate on my needs right now. It felt good. I am a caretaker. Now I am committed to taking care of me! It's just shakes, lean meat, and green veggies ...
