Reflections on month 2 of 6 pre op diet ~ Are we there yet?
Contrary to my belief, I did not die waiting for my monthly weight in as I slowly get closer to my surgery date. Ok, so this is a good thing and there have been others.
I am proud that I still have not had a carbonated drink since December which is actually a huge NSV for me. I have been faithful to drink a minim of 32oz of water a day. Some days I get 64 oz and plan to continue to increase until I reach 64oz per day, every day.
This month I have marked a few things off of my pre surgery check list as well.
- For starters, my second month PCP visit and weigh in. The scale showed a gain of 0.4, but I think that could just be the clothing.
- I had my sleep study which shows that I do have sleep apnea. I will be getting my machine soon, and when I do I will get my pulmonary clearance as well. I am really looking forward to a good night’s sleep.
- I have also started attending the local WLS support group. It is a live version of this website and I find the people there are just as candid and helpful as those on this website. I plan to continue with the support group meetings just because I like them.
I do occasionally have to give myself a personal time out from this site and obsessing about WLS in general. Everything in moderation, right?
Overall, I have a good feeling about what I have accomplished this past month. I hope that the next is just a fruitful. Best wishes to all ~ mykdzmom
