  1. I joined the loser's bench this morning!!

    @Trish13 Thank you for the tip on Fairlife. I'm going to have to check it out.
  2. I joined the loser's bench this morning!!

    So sorry I haven't been around! I am feeling really good! I had some gas pain after surgery that lasted a few days, but those seem to be gone! I went for my follow up last Monday and the doctor said I could start eating soups with small chunks. I had forgotten how good it feels to chew! He said if everything is still looking good come Monday that I will be able to do soft foods!!!! So excited to eat some scrambled eggs lol Other than that it's just going to take some time to really get the hang of everything. I had a small OMG what have I done the day after surgery, but that has subsided. I am soooo thankful I did this and I can't wait to really start using my tool. I've lost 18 pounds since surgery!!!

    @NerdyLady Not rude at all! Trust me I'm trying lol
  4. Surgery went great! I'm having very little pain although the gas pains hit a couple hours ago. I've been up and walking around the hospital floor twice already doing 2 laps the last time. I'm so excited to start using my new tool! It's amazing - I was starving before surgery this morning and now I'm not even hungry. My only complaint is im so thirsty! No ice chips or anything to drink until tomorrow. I have a wet sponge I can use to moisten my mouth and lips but it's not doing much good. Thank you all for your prayers and support! It means so much!!!

  7. I hit the 100 lb loss mark this morning!

  8. Surgery scheduled

    @LMBlack Congratulations on getting your surgery date! I am having the sleeve done next Tuesday, the 17th. I am so excited! Isn't it great to have supportive family? I feel so lucky that my family has been on my side this whole time. My mom came to all my doctor's appointments and nutritionist visits as well.

  12. Last Appointment Today!

    Thank you @Trish13, @Gretta, and @BurgundyBoy! I'm so ready to change my life. I'm incredibly lucky and have an extremely supportive family. In fact, my mom is going to come spend at least a week at my house to help with my rambunctious puppy lol I will say that it's only been day 1 of the liquid diet and my stomach has been growling non stop today lol. But, I have to follow doctor's orders. Tomorrow I have my pre-op appointment with my surgeon in the morning and then the hospital in the afternoon. It's getting real!!
  13. Last Appointment Today!

    @AustinJ I have to pay 20% since I haven't met my deductible. I work for a school district and of course our insurance starts over on September 1st. It comes out to a little under $4000.

  15. Last Appointment Today!

    So did I @CJireh! I was shocked when I got the call this morning. She asked if I wanted to do it next week or wait until next month. I told her I've waited long enough. Lol
