    I'm not nervous at all. I am so excited! My surgery is about 12 or 12:30 Pacific time. I can hardly wait. I'll keep you posted from the hospital if I feel up to it. I see two others with the same surgery date as us. I'll be praying for you too.

    HI!!!! Yes we are super excited! I cant believe how quickly this has gone by. Day 3 of liquids and I have to say it has gotten better. Im not as irritable about food anymore. Kind of accepted it. I will certainly keep in touch and will be praying for you as well.

    Be well!

    Thanks Missy, I couldn't figure that one out.
  13. Sherri, I will try to get some pizza in the next seven days! And I will say it. I do hope you are having a better day today. Girl, you are almost there!! 3 more days. You are almost there. I joined in August. Seems like forever I have been watching numbers go down!
    I will be asking for that giggly med right when I walk in the door. You rest up and take it easy!

    I'm so happy that your pre-op diet is only two days! WooHoo! Do me a favor and eat a slice of pizza for me. Say: "This is for Sherri!" Woo Hoo! Today was horrible, but it's in the past now. I'm getting excited about my surgery. Still hard to believe. I guess I'll believe it when they give me the giggly medicine! LOL Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

About mimik
Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I am the heaviest I have ever been and have decided to go ahead with surgery. I cannot walk without pain in my back and knees. Did not realize this extra weight would be so hard. I am not comfortable going anywhere as I have low self-esteem. I do not even have a relationship with my husband because I feel so disgusted with my body. I cannot wait to be able to get my life back and go out and enjoy it. I can't wait to walk and go camping, just having fun with my family and getting out of this damn recliner. I cannot do any of this without Jesus. Lord willing He will bring me through.
South of Grand Rapids, MI
Reading, watching tv, camping, spending time with my family. Shopping
I am disabled due to chronic back and knee pain

I get so very angry when People does their article on people who have lost have their size with the title of "NO SURGERY, NO GIMMICKS." Ummmm hello? Do you think that we have had to work any less than those who do it on their own? Which if you read they join a program some of the time, so that to me is not totally on their own. We should be recognized also for taking the steps to overcome obesity.
After some help from our surgeon, we are on our own also.

Some advice please?

I have my second appt with my surgeon and NUT on Jan 17th, however when I met with my NUT at my first pre-op appt she gave me my instructions for my soft foods. The instructions say week 4 I may have eggs, tuna, lean meats, chicken, fish, seafood, turkey and ham. Low fat cheese, string cheeses, I may add things to moisten the meats, spaghetti sauce, mayo to the tuna, etc. NO BEEF!

Ok, here is where my advice is needed. My nut said that I did not have to wait the full 4 weeks if the

Today is the first day I weighed myself with no clothes. Not even two weeks post op and I am 23 lbs down!! I lost 5 with my 2 day pre op diet, so I am very happy! Still waiting for my full energy to come back, day by day.

I want real food, help!!

I am still on liquids from being sleeved on Nov. 26th. I have my appt with Dr and NUT on the 11th. I really want real food!! My daughter made spaghetti tonight and I want to eat it so very much! What would happen if I did?? Protein shakes are not cutting it anymore because I really feel HUNGRY! Pasta is a soft food. Not good for carbs. But oh man, do not think I can stand much more of these drinks. Bring on phase two!!!

Its almost been a week since being sleeved tomorrow. I am starting to feel human again. I am down 17lbs! I still feel tired, not wanting to move around much, but still am forcing myself-a little pain, not too much.

How are y'all doing?
