I am on day 4 of my seven day pre surgery diet and I have been doing pretty good with it until this weekend! I am watching my husband eat and watching my 2 yr old eat meanwhile I make my shakes:)  Still telling myself along the way I am really not going to have the surgery (trying to lie to myself) so I wont have an aniexty attack thinking about it fastly approaching.  Good news is I have lost almost 8 lbs being on this liquid diet:)  Hopefully everyones having a wonderful sunday!! :)

Second Thoughts....

First off wanted to say thank you to everyone who is now following me, I will be sure to follow your blog as well!!! It has definitely turned my chin up because these past few days I have been having some serious doubts. And honestly reading too much online about it.  I have two little boys and they are the reason I want to do this, to be with them as long as possible and be healthy and able to keep up with them.  I have read alot of discouraging things about things possible of happening while getting or being banded, and as i said before I am a hyper hypo to the tenth degree!! I know the possibilities and the percentages are low but the chance is still scary to me.  And this liquid diet is pretty brutal before hand!! But again Thank you for the support it really means alot!:)

It's really happening

I have been debating this decision for a long time now, at least three years or so.  Last fall I was only a step away from scheduling my surgery to be banded to then later find out I was pregnant.  Which meant putting things on hold for awhile:)  I started having terrible heartburn and had a really bad attack last week.  So I went to get some tests done and it showed I have numerous gall stones, and need to have my gall bladder removed. . . So I asked my surgeon (who also happens to be my uncle) if I could get banded and also have my gall bladder out at the same time..long story short i am now scheduled to have both procedures done together next Thursday.  I am very nervous because I am what you would call a hyper hypo, every ache and pain in my body I analyze to the T.  But I am also very excited to start my weight loss journey, and it has helped me extremely reading so many others blogs about their journey.  So the countdown begins... 9 days to my surgery:)
