  1. Hi Buttercupplano! I am fine, thank you! A little tired and like you said, I do need to move around a little more so Iīll be going for a walk in a few minutes. Take care and let me know how you are doing! Thanks again for the message!

    How are you feeling? I hope you're doing okay...keep moving, that will help you feel better and keep up the water, you don't want to become dehydrated. This is the hard part, you'll feel better every day, promise. Post how you're doing when you get a chance.
  3. Thanks for your well wishes! Surgery went very well, very short operation according to the surgeon, I was in and out in 45 minutes. Came home Thursday and feel better with each day that passes. Eating pureed food but still relying on the protein shakes. Going back for check up on Wednesday. Hope all is well with all of you as well!

    I love Dawn French too. She is a big inspiration for losing weight. She looks amazing!
  7. Great! So, you are not cancelling?! I had another major surgery about 10 years ago and I did not flinch at all, but this one is getting to me a little bit. Maybe itīs because Iīm 10 years older? I donīt know. I guess being apprehensive is to be expected but at the same time what if itīs my intuition telling me something I should not ignore? Weird, isnīt it? Brain ghosts... hahaha! Good luck and I hope to be hearing from you soon! I hope we both sail thru surgery and that we wonīt have to experience any complications!

Iīm so happy because yesterday I finally got my surgery date - September 24th! Itīs starting to seem more real now... not just something that might take place some time in the distant future... less than 2 weeks to go! Iīm starting the pre-op diet on Saturday. I am so excited! Finally!
