Finally have a surgery date...yeaah!!

Saturday, June 08, 2013

Hi Friends. Well thank all of you that commented on my last post, and all comments were very supportive...exactly what I needed. Thank you.
I finally was given the date: June 26...only 17 days away! Yikes.

On Thursday I start the pre-op diet. This is very rigorous and it will be a HUGE challenge for me. I have never fasted in this way before in my entire life (and I am not very proud of that). So to go 2 weeks with only liquids will be the highest mountain I have ever climbed.

Has anyone ever done this? I wish Spark had a weight-loss surgery group.
Well, please pray for me as I know God is the only power strong enough to give me the will power I will need for this marathon.

I'm going to do my BEFORE pics this weekend in a 2 piece swim suit....Oh won't this be hilarious! Well, my husband suggested it, as he said it will motivate me. And I said "just keep the whale harpooners away from me! Just joking. I love my fat body just as I will love my skinny body. I just am not much on showing skin.

Love you all. Thank you for all the encouragement..

    Annie, I think there are several SP groups for surgery weight loss support. Try searching a number of different ways, as often some will come up with different names even if it isn't exactly the type of surgery you are having. Good luck to you! Looking forward to hearing how you get along and for your success story! Hugs, Jeannie

    Good Luck to you, I will be praying that you can do the juice and you will do great with the surgery too.

    Can't wait to see those pictures!

    I went to the Spark Teams page and put in the search word "surgery". There were 24 entries. One of the teams is probably what you're looking for. By the way the first time I tried it I entered "weight loss surgery" and got several hundred hits.

    I hope you find the support you are looking for.

    I haven't had the surgery - have some friends who have - some great success stories, others not so great - there are those who will talk or blog about it but not sure there is any "official" group on here. I know there are LOTS of people I have encountered who have been there and done that. Post a message as a new thread in one of the message boards - make your title clear and others will flock to the post - expect some negative comments but you will find some who can help you and support you through this.
