BICNGILLETTE, congrats on getting your surgery date! That's half the battle for a lot of people. Welcome to Spark People too!

I had the surgery a little over a year ago and I'm using Spark People to help me lose those last few pounds. It's really a motivating website! Good luck!

update on my surgery. Feb 1st, everything is almost a go. I'm going to my family doctor today to get his approval letter (also my annual exam). I went to my preop class yesterday and I'm overwhelmed with all the info they tossed out at me, but I'm trying to narrow it down to what I need to do now and first days afterwards. I'm getting the sleeve, but the care and directions are just like the bypass. What I'm working on today is my 2 protiens drinks, and one lean cuisine per day. I also have some shopping to do at GNC for protien bullets. If I don't find the bullets I'll probably just order them online. I also need to go to the bank and get a cashiers check since I'm a cash pay person.

Excited... nervous... what am I doing to myself?!?

I finally got approval from the insurance company!!! My date is March 10th. They could have done it earlier, but my boss didn't know I was planning to take a month off this spring, and this gives her some time to adjust. Happy dancing!

I like the extra cream slim fast shakes.

I keep forgetting to stop by a store to check my BP. I hope it's going down!

Thanks, Lee, I haven't heard of that one. I really like to eat my meals, but my husband may like these.

i just tried the new slim fast low carb drink and it was pretty good. it has 20 g of protien and only 2 grams of sugar, which is less (sugar) than the other drink i was using.

My wonderful Mom wrote this poem for me:
"Here I am at half of me,
almost where I want to be,
A few more pounds to shed, you see
I'm so full of joy and glee.
There'll be just one, instead of WE!
How great this is, I feel so free -
faith, hard work and Spark are key!
Don't give up being what you can be
if you need encouragement . . . . just contact me!"

Thanks! I am excited. I've just been looking online for ready to drink protien drinks. any suggestions? I was thinking of stopping by GNC this weekend and pick up some to have a taste test. I tend to like vanilla and some berry flavors generally.

I got a date!! Feb 1st - and instead of bypass I'm choosing the sleeve on recommondation of the doctor. I'm also cash pay so it's much cheaper. I have things to do before my surgery like get a recommondation from my family doctor (no prob), get my BP under control, take a stress test, and lose 10 to 15 pounds. Ugh on the last one, but I can try. I haven't been taking my BP meds and it really showed at the doctors office yesterday. But I got a date!!

I've got a dat on the 15. I was wondering if anyone, when they got closer to their surgery, if they started feeling more comfortable being fat? I even went out in public in my "fat pants". I've come to terms with it I guess. emoticon
