  2. Things you need to know

  3. Surgery today

    Well hello everyone. Today is the big day. I am finally having my surgery. It has taken over a year to go through the process. The 14 day liquid diet wasn't that bad. I even cooked dinner for my husband without the desire to eat it. I must say it smelled good but I had a goal in mind and that helped a lot I am very excited about today but also a bit nervous too. I just want to say anyone who is going through the process to get surgery I know they make u go through a lot of different stuff and sometimes it seems a bit crazy. But u just hang in there and don't give up and your surgery day will come too
  4. Liquid diet

    hi everyone. I am on day 8 of my liquid diet my surgery is on November 2 and I can't wait. I will be honest I have wanted to give up a few times during the past 8 days but I am keeping strong and will make it. I am looking forward to the purre diet this liquid diet is for the birds. I have talked to other people that have not had to do the liquid diet before surgery but I will do as my doctor says and keep going. I have to drink 6 protein shakes a day and I am having a really hard time getting them down. After this is all over I don't think I will ever have a shake again. Well I just wanted to get this off my chest I know that there are some that understand what I'm going through so if you have any information to pass on I would be most grateful thank you and I hope u all have a blessed day.
  5. Got surgery date

    I am so excited I finally got my surgery date. It will be on November 2. I can't wait to start this journey in my life the only problem is that my husband is not on board at all he has begged me not to do it. I love him very much but I am doing this for me I'm not being selfish at all I'm doing this to get healthy. I have been in the 300es for like the last 8 years I have lost 40 pounds on my own but it's not enough. I keep telling him the benefits of the surgery and he keeps telling me the bad stuff. Bottom line is I am having the sleeve surgery with or without his blessing. Is there anyone else that has gone through this. And if so how was the outcome. How do I get him to see the good not just the bad. Thanks so much

    Hi just wanted to say you made my day. when I read your post and you said big boned I know what you mean I am also big boned but sometimes people just don't get it I will never be 135 if I get below 165 I look sick so I am looking to get down to around 180 or maybe a little less. I have not had my surgery yet it will happen in ether april 2016 or may I am looking so forward to it. I have to be on a liquid diet for 2 weeks before the surgery. I keep thinking how am I going to do it but than I keep telling myself one day at a time I will get through it I want this so bad and I know I will feel 100% better with this weight off. Well you have a blessed day Andi
