Journey To Weight Loss Surgery: Pre-Op

Hey curvies!!!

If you follow my fitness page on Instagram you may have noticed my name change and a date. My second Instagram account is now Curvybee_RNY_ (here). Since January of this year I have been on this Weight Loss Surgery (wls) journey with the support from Nurse Practitioner, surgeon, my family, boyfriend, and friends I am proud to say I had my surgery May 12, 2017. 

Once I made my choice on which surgery I wanted, I then was hit with a laundry list of things to do to ensure I would be approved for my surgery. I started this journey back in January and with all of the testing and screenings I was done around April. I think the most helpful part of this process was attending two nutritional seminars that aided in a “this is what you are getting yourself into” type of format. The classes helped me plan my menus for pre-op and post-op. I was on a liquid diet for two weeks prior to surgery and it helped me build my discipline as well as work torwards proper planning for after my surgery.
