I only have one week till surgery. I guess that I got lucky because I was not put on a special diet the only thing that I have been told is not to eat or drink anything after midnight. wahoo have to get all thos last time chances out of the way. the only thing is since I have taken those meds I don't feel like eating and so I don't eat that much witch is good since I really shoulg get use to less.  people keep telling me how I don't need this surgery I am to small. If you haven't had this surgery any people are talking to you like this just tell them that your mind is made up and that it doesn't  matter what they say you have done your research. I have been researching for months know and I know that this is what I need to get to a healthy life.

I can't wait the count down is on. today I had a few people from the site email me they are great people and this site has helped me with alot of information. never be afraid to ask a question, and remimber there is never a stupid question so if you don't know and want to know ask.

I am 2 months out know. I have lost 38 lbs I would never have been able to do this in the past. I tried my first SF root bear yesterday. I have heard that it can streach out your poch so I had not tried it till then. I only had a couple of sips. I have been drinking nothing but water and tea for the last 2 months and figure that I should just stick with that. I am really afraid to take pictures of myself  still. I can tell that my cloths are to big expecially today. Sure that my husband will have something to say when he sees these pants that i am wearing. I don't want to invest in clothing yet and you can't find people that are my size on the clothing exchange. I am in lose 14 or tight 12 today I am wearing a 16 but it feels really good to be able to shop in a normal store again instaed of the plus size store. 
I don't get sick that much.  I seem to be ok with most foods I don't do to well with beef of pork, or noodles. Latley I know that I haven't been eating all of the protien that I am suppose to. I have been craving salad and fruits. I also know that I need to drink more water but from what I have heard who doesn't need to .  I keep hearing how i look so good. I just wish that i had the same feeling about myself as they do.

I am into 10's and 12's know wahoo. I was also given these jeans that are size 8 and I figured maybe one of these days I will be able to fit into them well I can fit into them too they are tight so I won't wear them yet but I can zip and button them. I am tiered latly but that is do to the  kids keeping me on the run. I don't know if i could have made it with that extra weight.  I like staying busy but I am so worn out I wish it would slow down just a little more so that I could rest up some. It is hard to even find the time to work out. I go go go Wish that the rest of the family would pitch in and help me some. I know that has nothing to do with the surgery but it is still part of my life. Well have to get to work. Bless the surgeons that gave me this wonderful gift.

My husband is in the military so as long as it is approved it will be covered. I have attended 2 group meetings and have asked lots of questions. I have researched this procedure a lot but think that you can never learn everything and that everyone is different. So far I have been seen by sleep and will get the results of that today. I have gone to the psychologist, and nutritionist. This week I will have my ultra sound done checking the gallbladder. Then on Mon 26 Feb07 I will see the Dr again and he will tell me when the surgery is or what else he will need done and I will do a pre-op for the upper -GI that I will have to be asleep for. My largest problem is that I don't have a great support group. I can do this Please pray for me.
