This post is kind of pointless, but I am so excited for surgery. I still can't beleive it's happening. I feel like I am dreaming!
As some of you saw on my last post, I wasnt losing weight with Optifast. I'm now on day 11 of Opti and have lost 6 pounds. Turns out I was retaining water from my period and I was pretty constipated....(tmi? Lol)
i have a 8am appointment with the anastegiologist tomorrow. Which means I have to be up at 6am. I am dreading it, but still very excited :)
