  4. Oh Boy! 2 Days To Go!

    I can't believe that in two days, my life will change forever! It will change for the good and I know that. I am very excited and haven't been nervous at all. I have been way too busy to be nervous. My husband had hip surgery on Dec 22, 2011 and he is doing AWESOME!!! Which I am thrilled he has progressed as well as he has. We also have 1 of our dogs who has been sick for a couple of weeks, so I have been busy with her as well. If she is not better by Monday, we will have to bring her back to the vets. Monday is the only day that I have left to tend to things. I have to be at the hospital at 6 am on Tuesday morning for my surgery! I am so looking forward to this new journey in my life!!
  5. I am Jan 10th!
  6. I had the Nut...and found it very helpful! I am surprised you went through this process without one.
  7. Yay! Congrats!! I am Jan 10th, so we are close!!
  8. Congrats! That is awesome!
  9. My surgery is a day later on Jan 10th! Good luck to you all!
  10. our surgery dates are close together. I am scheduled to have mine on Jan 10th :) I am so looking forward to it :)

  11. The best place to start is talking with your PCP. Contact an Obesity Treatment Center near you. You have plenty of time till a decision has to be make! I wish you the best of luck!
  12. Two Weeks!

    Hard to beleive that two weeks from today is my GBP surgery! After months of prep, it all comes down to this...the surgery; then the start of a new journey! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it's getting brighter with each passing day! I am super excited for my sugery!! I have never been one to get nervous about my surgeries, I guess I take them in stride, since I have had a lot of surgries from the time I was little. When I first started with OTC (Obesity Treatment Center) I was told in order for me to schedule surgery, I need to complet the required classes, and I did! I would also have to lose 20 lbs and I have done that plus. I beleive I am down 27 pounds and I just started my two week liquid diet, so it should be interesting to see how much weight I drop in the next two weeks. When I was able to schedule my surgery, the nurse told me about the liquid diet and I had to lose an additonal 5-7 pounds before my pre-op apt with my surgeon Dr. Catania which is on Jan 4th. So far I have lost 3 out of the 7 pounds and feel pretty confident that I will meet the requirements. I actually did a little shopping while my husband was sleeping/recouping from his hip surgery on Dec 22nd. I went to Walmart and picked up a new protein drink mix. My Nut says I can't do the HMR shakes after surgery, I needed something with more protien. I also picked me up a new bathrobe, slippers and nightgown, liquid tylenol, and gaxX strip. Those were some of the things that I have read that I needed.
  13. Nice to meet you as well Johnny! :)

  14. Keep your eye on the prize!
  15. Wow! You look amazing! When I see pictures like this, it only confirms to me that I am doing the right thing. My surgery is Jan 10, 2011! CONGRATS to you on your success!
