2 more days until I get to really get started losing my 240 pounds! I so can't wait! I am getting pretty nervous/scared though.

It's normal to be a little freaked out just before surgery! It will be fine, though. Hang in there and be prepared for a wild, thrilling ride! :)

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! It is really common to become really fearful and anxious right up to the point of the surgery. We have all experienced that. You will be fine and love your sleeve and your new body! CONGRATS! It's almost here. ;)

I know it is totally normal to feel that way....it's why I keep trying to focus on all the positives....and all the things that I will be happier doing...

This will sound retarded to most...but for those of us who are larger may understand...the thing that I am looking forward to the most is wearing some 6 inch heels and not feeling like I am going to break my neck...or an ankle...I may splurge and buy me a most awesome pair when I get to that stage!
