First day on pre-op liquids
Wow... first day trying to be good, doing my liquid diet for pre-op. Only day one and I could eat a cardboard box. And I have to do this for a week. I ought to be fun by Sunday... People were fixing their lunches at work today, and the smells wafting out of the kitchen were killing me. *sob*
It really wasn't that long ago that I decided to do Lap Band surgery. The first of October, to be exact. My surgery will take place on November 21 at 2:30 pm. I'm excited, anxious, excited, nervous, excited, and apprehensive. Oh, and did I say I was excited? I'm trying to prepare myself for as much as I can, though everybody seems to have such different experiences that I think it'll be difficult to know for sure.
Regardless, I'm ready. Sixteen years of this excess weight is just too much. Beginning weight this morning: 288. Ugh. Well... good-bye to you, fatso! I'm on my way beginning today.
