Food funerals and nerves.

boringtessa

226 views

The day is coming up!  A week from this Wednesday!  I'm getting nervous, but mostly in a good way.  I've told all my close people, and everyone is supportive so far; I've got a few people praying for me (well, mostly for the surgeon and his team), which is a comfort.

I've been having "food funerals", though I'm on the fence about that concept in general... in some ways, it doesn't seem like a good idea to have "one last...." if it means binging on things.  That kinda defeats the purpose of the pre-op diet you were on to develop good habits.  But I've been doing them.  Indian food one last time.  Baking one last cake for myself.  One last ice cream.  I begin my pre-op liquid diet on this coming Friday, so I'm kinda going a little crazy with the last meals, almost on the verge of a binge - though, encouragingly, I've been able to control the urge to binge so far, avoiding situations that would cause that behavior.

Speaking of the 5-day pre-op liquid diet, I think the thing I'm getting most nervous about is being HANGRY for those 5 days before the surgery, but I have to remind myself that it will be worth it, and in doing so, I hope I can keep my attitude from being totally rotten.  But BOY do I get hangry.

Sleeved Aug 23/18. Interesting about the food funerals. Even though I did them I’ve come to realize that I will be able to have a piece of pizza again just not the whole thing 🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕! I think it will be wonderful when I can just have one piece and be satisfied. Really be good on the pre-op, very important. Best of luck 🤗

Congrats on your recent surgery! It is true what you say about still being able to have the foods you love, that's something I should remind myself of... instead of being super sad about never having good things again, I should remind myself that I may very well be able to eat those things again, just not the huge portions I've been used to. I am also looking forward to being satisfied faster - one piece of pizza, I can't imagine!

As I am sitting here reading your post, I am eating Taco Johns... for the last time. LOL! My surgery is Thursday... I have been on shakes and 1 small meal for the last 11 days, and tomorrow I do liquids only. I completely understand the difficulty and the way of thinking. But yet I feel awful when I do something I know I shouldn't.

Don't get me wrong, I am very excited for the surgery! I've been ready and just waiting for it, but I'm not a patient person at all. LOL!

Many blessings on your upcoming surgery! :206_cat:
