Oh My God It's Going To Happen!!!

Recommended Posts

I am shocked. Totally shocked. I am finally going to have my surgery! I had an appointment with my surgeon today and I have finally lost enough weight that we are going to proceed. So next Monday morning, bright and early, I'm hauling my tushie down to the hospital and banding up!!!

I was so nervous about the appointment I didn't let myself think about the reality of the surgery! So now it's hitting me all at once. But I am super duper pooper scooper excited. I'm going to spend the weekend stocking up on liquids and trying to get mentally prepared. Does anyone have any good advice for the last 4 days before I take the plunge?

I am so stinkin excited. Can I say that one more time? I know reality will set in soon and it won't be all fun and games, but DANG I'm enjoying feeling good about it right now.

Ok, so two random thoughts...

Random #1 - I read the best quote the other day on Puddin Pie's blog. It said "Where am I going and why am I in this handbasket?" Is that not HYSTERICAL?! That is such an apt description of my life sometimes..

Random #2 - I read something earlier DeLarla posted about marshmallows and Ritz crackers and I had to laugh because I grew up eating something similar. My mom would take a saltine, put a slice of cheddar cheese on it and a marshmallow on top and put it in the microwave for a few seconds to let everything melt together. She calls them "Poor Boy Cookies" Her mom made them for her when she was growing up. Sounds weird, I know! But it is the best combination of salty/sweet, chewy/crunchy, savory all at the same time. IT WORKS TOGETHER!

Ok, I will stop my ramblin now. Just had to share the good news. Yay for me! :clap2:

        I would love to be your accountability partner. I had the sleeve in 2021, so maybe I can give you some insights.

        Please message me back, looking forward to hearing from you!
