    Thank you! Sorry took so long to respond I forget to come on here now days and I don't get notifications when someone messages me. Not sure how to turn it on. How is your journey going?
  2. Oh I am having the hardest time with not drinking when I eat. I started trying to Sunday but i kept drinking. I think I am going to have to put a bell on my drinking cups so I realize when I am picking them up.
  3. I am self pay. I work for the insurance company and they don't cover bariatric at all. It is actually specifically excluded from our coverage. I was going to do financing, and was approved, but the terms were way to crazy for me to accept. So I am just saving and waiting..

    Yeah, chewing food and not drinking during meals were the worst habits to break for me. Im sorry to hear you might have to push back your date. I know thats frustrating. Are you going through your insurance for the surgery or are you self paying? I went through Kaiser and it took 7 months of jumping through hoops to finally get my date. It felt like forever but best thing I ever did. Its time to makes us our #1 priority!
  5. I am the same way!!!LOL have a whole drawer dedicated to just sunglasses. I am doing okay. frustrated about the waiting and I may have to move my surgery date again...:-( but I will have it completed before the end of summer. right now I am concentrating on getting into the grove of what I will be facing post op. things like really chewing my food properly and getting enough water and protein in. I didn't realize how bad I am at chewing my food completely until I decided to really be conscious of it.

    Thanks, they are the newest ones in my collection. Some women collect shoes, others purses - my addiction is shades and hats. I have over 30 pair. You have to have the right shades for a specific outfit. LOL! Us women love our accessories! How you doing? You still have another few months but the time flies and the waiting is the hardest part. Let me know if you need anything or have any questions. Im always here to help.....
  7. Thanks ms. BlackGirlGamer

  9. Its funny you should suggest him. I have narrowed my selection between him and Dr Almanza.
  10. Go with Obesity Control Center. Dr Ariel Ortiz and the staff are AWESOME!! http://p.obesitycontrolcenter.com/ga...FcQbgQodZ10AwQ
  11. I wish I would have known that this was an option for my 2 years ago.
    I was always told that I wasn't heavy enough for the surgery. So I thought to myself, Great I am stuck in the middle. Now that I know I can't wait to find my surgeon and get the ball rolling!!!!

Food Emotions.

by nickaj2815 on 12-04-2018 at 11:46 AM
I shared this on a form, but I also want to save it as a status update.

I had to lay down my rant about my mini emotional breakdown during the pre-op diet.

I have been taking my time to get ready for my pre and post op diet, since August. Buying some little things here and there to make sure I was completely stocked up. My surgery is not scheduled until 12/12/2018. I knew I would have to do the diet for 2 weeks before my surgery, so I had plenty of time to get everything

PRE OP Weight loss Mind Games

by nickaj2815 on 12-04-2018 at 11:41 AM
I began my pre-op liquid diet on November 26, 2018. I am scheduled for surgery on 12/12/18.

I knew that I would lose weight during the pre-op stage, but I didn't know it would be such a mind screw. The liquid diet can result in rapid weight loss, and when you begin to see the pounds fall off, you may begin to rethink having surgery. (Well at least this thought did cross my mind). You begin to think, "Wow, I have lost, so many pounds already, maybe I don't need to go through with

Food Tantrums

by nickaj2815 on 04-10-2015 at 01:23 PM
Has anyone else had one of these? I had one yesterday and had to laugh at myself.

In preparation for my soon to come surgery, I have been sticking to a pretty structured diet. It hasn't been easy but I am doing pretty well at sticking to it. Yesterday morning, because I had meetings in the morning, I ate a lighter than normal breakfast. After reviewing my calories and other limit for the day, I decided I could afford to have 1 dry baked bread stick (with no butter), from our

Compression garments

I thought it was an interesting premise so I thought I would check with all you wonderful folks on the forum to see if anyone else has tried it and if it worked. She is about 7 months post op. She looks great and swears that the shapers are helping her body tone and avoid
