  1. Even though I have stones he isn't 100% on taking the gall bladder. He wants to see the condition first and then decide. It would be a pain to have to take it later though, so i hope if it looks iffy he'll grab it now.

    I Lied.....

    Arrrgh ladies! So very frustrating. My family has tried to do their best but crack me up at their helplessness. I've resorted to starting dinner because they can't all agree etc. Once its started I fly out to the garden or to the bedroom with a book. My 11 year old daughter came in to sit with me last night with a smoothie in her hand, which made my 20 year old crazy. She forgot I can't eat. They're all good. I'm feeling the same about my surgery next week, so it must be the natural way to go. I keep thinking if I can withstand liquid for 2 weeks and drop pounds maybe I could do it without surgery. I think it is natural to have doubts on such a big decision but stay the course. Remember, you are awesome!

    The Juice

    I'm on day 4 of The Juice (protein shakes.) I've managed to cook for my family with their help. Tonight my husband is cooking chicken on the grill while I prepared the artichokes for the grill. I found the recipe a few months ago. http://prouditalianc...l-of-grill.html Last night I was SO hungry that I couldn't sleep. I had to get out of bed and watch TV. My daughter was still awake and was delighted to be up in the middle of the night with Mom. Luckily it is summer break so I didn't have to get up in the morning. Now its off to the garden. Those artichokes look totally delicious. I find its less tempting if I clear out and keep busy.

    No More Neglecting The Blog! Still On Pre-Op Diet

    I love the name "Changing Lanes:" very clever! I agree with the spinach thing. Its funny how some docs let you eat and others don't. I'm only allowed liquids that my family refers to as The Juice. My doc also let us know that it was to shrink the liver and not because he is being punitive. Cracked me up. Keep it up. You are awesome!

    Monthly Weight Lost

    I loved seeing your results..even the + was impressive as you kept on going. Are your first 2 months unusual or do many lose that much? I'm preop and would love to have your success. Thanks for sharing. It is very encouraging and congrats. You are AWESOME!
  13. Thanks...my fingers are crossed. Unfortunately it is not a guarantee and sometimes doesn't happen right away. I'm hoping I reverse, but won't be surprised if I'm not. My levels have always been high until recently. Now I have lows which I think are a result of a new med and the liquid diet. You are right we will always be considered diabetic even if our levels are under control.

    Tiny Violins

    Hang in there...I'm on day 2 of the liquid diet thing. I'm trying to stay away from people as much as possible. I didn't know about the hot lemon water. Have to give it a try. It's also good to know that it will get better. Waiting, waiting, waiting for the torture to be over. (hoping it does end)
  15. Awesome advice. Thanks!
