Good Morning everyone and happy Friday! I hope everyone has an enjoyable and relaxing weekend ahead of them.
I'm looking for some opinions on being told that basically I need to stop/slow down with the weight loss from my mom. She has been my b

So tomorrow is the big day, surgery is scheduled for 8am! I'm super excited and not really nervous, but I can't figure out what to do with myself today. I want to prepare everything for post-op so I'm going to clean, but any other su
I don't know how many people experienced these feelings pre-op, but I always feel...just bad. I feel sick at my stomach all the time (probably from always eating crap food and way too much of it to boot), so tired, just like I always
Good news, I heard back from my insurance company today and they've approved me for surgery!
Now that it's real, I'm starting to think ahead, but I'm really unsure about vitamins. I feel like I haven't really been prepared by
I have my appointment with the nutritionist in a week where I am sure she will put me on my official pre-op diet (I am on what appears to be an unofficial diet now). I was wondering what others experiences were with their pre-op
I'd like to introduce myself; my name is Haley, I am 24 years old, 260 pounds, and I'm out of Ohio! I've just passed my psychological evaluation and am scheduled for my nutritionist visit/testing and blood work on Feb. 27th. I'd
