  3. This is me before leaving the hospital after having Gastric Sleeve Surgery on March 20th, 2014. This was 2 days after the surgery. I am miserable. I hope things get better soon. The pain I am experiencing is borderline unbearable. Better days are ahead and I am excited for them!!

  4. I have gastric sleeve surgery yesterday. I have never been in so much pain.


  5. Mentally preparing myself..

    Am I ready for all this? Have I mentally prepared myself for this surgery? I’m dedicated. I want this. I want the weight off. I’m willing to do the exercise. But man, some Chinese food sounds good. I guess the cravings never go away. I guess even when 80% of my stomach is gone that I’ll still WANT food. I’m changing. It’s slow, but it’s happening.. and I am noticing how much will power I have. I’m pretty proud of myself. I can do this.

  7. Last pre op appointment tomorrow

    Just one week and 1 day til gastric sleeve surgery!! I hope everything goes well tomorrow at my last pre op appointment.


  8. I have my surgery date!!

    March 20th! I will be having gastric sleeve surgery. I can’t believe it is that soon. Thank god for answered prayers. I can’t wait to start my new life. I’m happy, anxious, nervous, and scared! Any advice on what I should take to the hospital with me? Any help would be greatly appreciated.


  9. I’ve lost 11.6 pounds in 3 days!!

    Pre op diet is working! On Friday morning i started the pre op (30 carb only) diet.. and as of Monday morning I am down 11.6 pounds. I hope this continues! I’m getting excited.


  10. Day 3 pre op diet

    I’m miserable. I’m craving the biggest bowl of fettecini Alfredo you could imagine. My dietician said that I would “withdraw” for the first week.. where my carb in take is limited. I definitely have the caffeine headaches and I know my sugar has been dropping. I wouldn’t say I’m starving but I would say that I am wanting to snack every 10 minutes from habit. This is harder than people think.. I hope it gets better after this first week.
