Thanks everyone for your feedback, I really do value it 

I am so pleased that I can continue with what I am doing.  

In relation to exercise after the big op, I have found myself saying things to my personal trainer like "I am going to smash this when I am 20kg lighter, so imagine what I will be able to do after getting rid of ALL my excess weight!"  It is really exciting to think that I will be able to do more with less pain....  Having more energy will be awesome, so tired of feeling so tired!

Don't you just love it when people try to give you a bit of negative input, when, really, they have nothing with which to substantiate their opinion ?? No, me neither ! Totally agree with BOJ and denzel - my first thought was "what rubbish!!" before I read their responses. She is probably just jealous that you will be improving your health, well being AND physical fitness ! I have always done a lot of exercise ( usually 5 x a week) whether I've been fat, slim, or in between. I'm 5 months post sleeve, started exercising just as hard as before from about 4 weeks post op (obviously started off a little slower and wasn't silly about it!) and have been back going harder than before for quite  a while now - only it's easier without that excess weight dragging me down !! I credit the long term exercise with my lack of loose skin, and at 46, having had 4 c-sections , and losing 27 kg in the last 5 months, I could have expected to have a bit of that. So, I would say keep up the great work - absolutely get yourself as fit as possible before your surgery, and you will find it that bit easier to get back into it post op ! Ignore the negativity - well done you for committing to be the best you can be !!!

Nope!  Not a silly question!
Your colleague is just someone, who through no fault their own, is ignorant.
it's up to you to enlighten them!

I had MASSIVE resistance to me getting the sleeve done by three people who I had thought would have been very supportive.
I had to keep emailing 2/3 who had email and the internet information.

Look at @Mr Mick and other inspirational people!

All the best!

Thanks BOJ!

Like I said, I just know it is a silly question but so much second guessing at the moment.

Think that I was just so thrown off by the comments and I am going to stuggle with all of the change to myself as it is.

Thanks agqain!

Also - post op, sure - you are going to need recovery time.  But, you are going to be on a VLCD for some months post - and of course you can exercise as soon as your surgeon is happy for you to do so.

What rot.  

I upped my exercise and was doing plenty in the lead up to the op, including the very strict pre op diet.  I was fine.  I did feel hungry, but just filled up on veggies.  And kept going.  

I don't recall my energy levels dropping significantly - but then my energy levels wax and wane now - some days I feel invincible and a workout is easy....some days....not so much.  

That said, prior to the pre-op strict diet, I'd been doing 2 shakes and a small healthy meal a day - so maybe I got a bit used to it.  

We are all different, but I think the concept that you "can't" is rubbish.

Hi everyone,

I got my date last week (June 20th) and am expecting 6 weeks of Opi-fast.... 

Anyway I have been attending personal training at least twice per week for the past 2 years.  I was having a casual chat with a colleague today and mentioned that I was going to an extra session each week until surgery so that I am fit and healthy as I can be.  She sent me back to Earth in a hurry when she pointed out that I wont be able to do this exercise, or be allowed when on such a low calorie diet.  Makes sense, but I still have to ask - is it true?  Hoping one of you wonderful people can confirm or dispell this unwanted information....... Can't believe I am upset about it!  Obviously I am in a bad way or I wouldn't be getting surgery so how did I even get to the gym let alone like it.......

Cheers,
