  1. Hello All. I am 4 days Post-op and getting used to all the small portions of eating and drinking. I feel a little sad to not be in control anymore about putting whatever i want in my mouth. Why couldn't I just control better before surgery. I am trying to focus on all the positive outcomes from having this surgery but gee whiz....1/4 cup of food! Just putting it out there as i feel like a truck has hit me. I just have a bit of soreness...but getting used to the drinking and it gurgling in my tummy. Did any of you feel down afterwards? Or just me.

    Thanks everyone! My birthday is December 24th and I feel like this is the best birthday present I can give myself. I have only told a circle of friends and some family about the upcoming surgery. My parents are aware, but I have decided not to share with some family including my in-laws who aren't very supportive. My husband asked me when I would tell them and I am not sure if this is necessary right now. They have not shown to be very supportive in other health situations...ectopic pregnancy and gall bladder surgery. And I think from that its best to surround myself with support and not naysayers. Onward! @Loosing Lucy Very happy you pulled through ok. How are you feeling? I have a 6 yo so he is more aware something will happen, but I haven't shared specifics. We made sure he knows mommy will be going to the hospital but it is make mommy feel better. And I asked if he could watch movies with me when I am relaxing at home. He was all over that!
  3. Hi everyone! 10 days until surgery. In pre-op phase. Feeling so nervous, but happy to start the next phase of my life. How are you all feeling?

    Yes. I am happy to take this path of my weightless journey. Just worried right now. I have been on a weightless journey for years....success and failures. I see my body as my mothers...who because of obesity has undergone so much surgery because of arthritis and other diseases. Knee replacements, back surgery, foot surgery. I have osteoarthritis. I see my future if I don't get this weight down. I am doing this for my health and to have a beautiful future with my son and husband and family/friends. Thanks for listening.

    Hello! Countdown until my surgery on 12/27. I can say that I am a bit nervous. I am tidying up my lose ends in my biz and around the house to prepare. It's challenging being a parent to a 6 year old. But setting aside time to prepare mentally for the big day. Look forward to talking this journey...but I am also scared.
