Wow so much good & helpful advice. I too am glad I found this site as I have only told a few people about my up and coming journey. I have my Sleeve date - 11th December 2014. I am most nervous about staring the optifast (have to do 2 weeks of it) and sticking to it and also very nervous of how I'm going to get through the silly season while I'm recovering & learning to eat a whole new way. Oh and throw in a holiday cruise 5 weeks after my the operation.
