Here Goes!

May 17, 2009

Sorry it's been so long since I've been on, I was out of state 2 wks in a row and the races are in town so I have been at the track all wknd. I had about 8 appointments with various people at my MD office. I had to do a body scan where they show how much of your body is fat and muscle. I have 104 lbs lean muscle and 6 lbs of bones! The rest is fat. I have been walking the stairs on my breaks and have been practicing not drinking with meals and chewing 30 times. This is hard work, but the more I"m into it doesn't seem like rocket science.

I started my liquid diet today, I am so blessed to only have 2 days prior but the kicker is I'm on CLEAR LIQUIDS for a week after then advance to full liquids, puree, softs etc. I have been so excited until today, the nerves kicked in. I know that I will be okay it's just the fear of the unknown and not being able to control anything. I work at the hospital I am having surgery at so I hand picked most of my staff- call me controlling/crazy but I want the people I know are capable of taking care of me since I have that ability. I believe in my hospital staff and know they will do an excellent job it's just these silly nerves.

I am excited to see how my life is going to change right before my (and everyone's) eyes. I have met so many wonderful people in the bariatric world and feel so blessed to have nothing but support. I am a lightweight in the sense I do not have more than 100 lbs to lose to be at goal/healthy weight and am thankful nobody has been rude to me about that fact. Some of my fellow LW friends have told me horror stories and I do not wish to be in their shoes. I have had the comments that we all have but nothing I couldn't handle. If I could "just eat less" don't you think I would LOL

I go into the hospital Tuesday at 8:30 for a 10:30 start time. I will spend 1 night and be out my Wednesday (my birthday) around 12. I will update you as soon as the drugs wear off and I am able to log on. Thank you for your kind words and support. Prayers are always welcome and if I don't post again until then,  I will see you on the losers bench!
