    HI everyone! as my surgery date is approaching I can't help to be super nervous! KYbourbanaged53 when are you arriving at Tijuana? I arrive this Thursday noon.
  7. Good thoughts right back at you I can almost hear my voice in your words, I go through bouts of fatigue from the stress to an overabundance of energy and have moved my three to four sizes of clothes to an empty room at my son's house so I can go shopping later hahaha
    I like to have Bourbon and Coke in my social events and there too would be cigarettes attached outside of those two things there's nothing else I will miss
    I feel my outward appearance affect my job and worse yet that messes with my head so yeah diving in and praying for a smooth post-op transition

    Same. I have started to prepare for the post-op stage. Got my protein powder from Costco. Have been researching broth. My husband makes an awesome hot and sour soup, which I hope to be able to add in the liquid stage. I stayed up until almost 3 am the other night laying in bed wondering if I was doing the right thing. I'm a bit nervous about failure, because I have failed at so many "diets" in the past. Would loose weight only to gain it back. Yo yo queen here. Slightly worried about how it will impact my life as a whole. I belong to a wine and book club, where we get together to drink and talk about a book we read. But when I make the list of pros and cons I know that I have made the right decision. This is my year to improve my health. Sending good thoughts your way. This can be emotional.
  9. Omygoodness yes, that soon to be smaller stomach of mine gets butterflies everytime I think about it LOL
    I have read the pre-op post-op diet instructions and still feel it's not clear to me just yet I'm sure once it becomes daily it'll work itself out I guess that's my big concern at the moment how about you
