Today is the last day of my old life. Yes ... that means that I signed all the papers and got my surgery date.
It's on July 18th!!!!
Tomorrow I start my pre-op diet which will consist of high proteins and low carbs and be about 1000-1200 calories a day. That will last for two weeks and then I move on to full fluids for one week and then clear fluids for the week before surgery.
So today was my food funeral. I went out and pigged out. Maybe not the best idea but I wanted to do it anyway. My husband and I went out for our anniversary date and we went to a Brazilian steakhouse. It was fantastic.
There is so much about my life right now that I will miss terribly. I love food. Simple as that. I'm not healthy though and I want to be around to watch my kids grow up. There is so much more than I want in life so food is just going to have to be something that I give up in return for so much more.
Goodbye old life ... Hello new me!!
