    Pre op diet questions.

    Hi guys! I have not been on this forum for a very long time! It was almost a year ago that I came on here for information and I ended up trying again on my own. I got up 50 lbs from where I previously was and realized finally that I couldn't do it on my own. I made the choice to have WLS, and I am going through with it. I am scared, but feel like its the best choice all at the same time. Fast forward in time a bit and here I am on my pre-op diet!!! I am going through the Cleveland Clinic in Weston, FL. Their pre-op diet consists of week 1 1 protein shake in the AM and for lunch and dinner lean protein and 1 cup of veggies or salad with clear liquids in between.-- not to bad... I am just unsure if I cheated? I have been really good sticking to everything on the pre op diet to a T. Last night I didn't want to have just the regular ol' grilled chicken or fish. So I bought some ground turkey and lettuce leave to have a "version of tacos." -- I added low sodium Taco seasoning... would that be considered cheating? I don't think so, but I am not sure. Would anyone else consider that cheating? I only had 4 oz of the ground turkey/ taco mix and two lettuce leaves... Should I mention that.. and did I cheat?? I would be devastated if that is considered cheating b/c i have been so so so good. But I saw the recipe on pintrest under Vertical sleeve pre-op diet. Let me know what you guys think ? Thanks!

    Pregnancy after the sleeve

    Hi everyone, I was talking to my husband about weight-loss surgery, and one of the main reasons that I would like to have the surgery is so that I can have a healthy pregnancy. My husband and I want to know has anyone who has had the sleeve had complications with pregnancy, complications getting pregnant, or complications after a pregnancy? Any help or insight on this matter would be greatly appreciated and any links that you couldn't give for articles would also be appreciated. Thank you you so much for help, Ali

    question about water intake

    Hi everyone! So I have not had the surgery, nor am i schedule. I have not even talked to my physician about it yet. I do not have that appointment till January... which is a long long time away... I just have a question about water intake. I am not a person who drinks literally anything but water. occasionally i will have a soda, but that is very rare. With WLS, I have seen people say that they can barely get down water... why is that? and does that go away? I drink a ridiculous amount of water, probably more than the average person. that worries me a little, can anyone elaborate on that? Thank you!
  10. Hi everybody, I am looking into weight-loss surgery and I'm just wondering if anybody has had weight-loss surgery in West Palm Beach Florida, or if anybody can make any suggestions as to a place to start to get a consultation in that area? Obviously I need to start with my primary care physician, but it will be nice to know a bariatric surgeon in the area that specializes in weight-loss surgery ahead of time. Thank you for any help! Another question I had is prior to getting my consultation with my position and talking to her about wanting we lost surgery is there anything that I should start doing to prepare aside from research. Should I start a certain diet should I document certain things any help would be greatly appereciated!

    Hello... thinking about WLS...

    Thank you for sharing your story, and good luck on your journey. Please friend me. We have similar stories. I do not have as much weight as you do to lose but I fear i am getting there with every passing day. You can do it. While i am doing my research, you will have had your surgery and be on your way to a more healthy lifestyle for you. I too have always felt the " i can do it on my own" way, but its sad for me to say I don't think that I can. I have tried everything, every diet only to gain and lose the same 25-30 lbs. Good luck with everything, and hopefully we can keep in touch!
