About Me

  • Biography
    Like many others, I've been overweight almost my entire life. I looked into gastric bypass back around 2010 but my insurance didn't cover it. Now, years later, my current insurance covers the procedure and I'm sooooo ready for it!

  1. Surgery is TOMORROW! It doesn't even feel real! I'm sitting here having my decaf coffee 'breakfast' and trying to just keep as busy as I can today so I can try to avoid the fact that I'm on 'clear' liquids all day today, no protein shakes :wacko: I brought chicken bone broth and chicken bouillon cubes to try for lunch, and must have brought half a pound's worth of sugar free lemon lime jello for snacks haha. Lord this day can't be done with soon enough!

      Thank you! Can't wait to get back on to provide an update post surgery :) My pre-op with my surgeon yesterday evening went great. Said all my pre-op tests looked really good and he didn't foresee any issues as far as he can tell/predict.

      Thanks to Snapchat filters, you can see how I'm *really* feeling about this clear liquid day LOL
