My last soda

Well, I have now started my pre surgery diet. That basically is consisting of having 1 meal a day, and then fluids the rest of the day. As of next Monday, the 27th, I start with the extreme diet.. yikes. That will be fluids most of the day, with a very light meal. The idea is for me to lose a significant amount of weight prior to surgery to help with getting fatty tissue off my liver.

So today, I had my last soda. It will be very hard for me to stay off, at least right at first... But, Im gonna do it.

Wish me luck.!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are getting closer, like 19 days left......

Here is a pic of my last soda (yeah, Im a silly sentimental weirdo)

Its almost time

So its getting closer to August 10th. All kinds of things are getting ready to start happening. I have received a letter from Cedars-Sinai with all the info I need.

I am set to have Laparoscopic Vs Open Adjustable Gastric Band on 8/10/2009 at 7:15am.

YAY (thats how its listed on my letter)

I still have to get another EKG, Chest Xray, Lab tests..... tons, and a pregnancy test. (Im 150% sure of the results on that one)...

Anyways, My first adjutment will be on 9/22/2009. Which is 1 day short of a week past my 35th birthday. Not much will happen before then. My stomach will need time to heal until then. But after that, its done.

Im so excited, I cant wait. I have been a larger person for such a long time now that I cant even remember how it felt to be smaller. I know this will be a major change for me and Im so ready for it. Thank you to all my friends and family that have been there for me. You know how much this is gonna mean for me.

Until next time..........
