Morning everyone. I love reading these blogs and it's lovely to meet you all :D I have a question, which may be too "deep", but I'll ask anyway! My main concern is that after surgery my head won't have caught up to my smaller stomach and I'll still want to eat like I used to. Some people report cravings disappearing, but it's not guaranteed. I have an appointment with a counsellor today in the hope that the surgery combined with some therapy may help me on my way. It's got to be worth a try! Does anyone share this concern? I guess these blogs are a form of therapy too :D

July 17 for me in Michigan, VSG. Begin pre-op diet July 7. Cooking and freezing broth and organizing kitchen. Cannot eat processed foods or artificial sweeteners so it's been a grand adventure creating a workable food plan and working with stevia. Feeling excited, anxious!

I, too, am full of many "what ifs" - fear of the unknown gets the best of us. I just take a deep breath and tell myself it will all work out fine. Just tip toe thru the tulip days one at a time, and some days tip toe hour by hour. I want to enjoy the ride and not be fearful of it. I consider myself a pioneer on a journey of exploration. Issues will come up, and I will deal with them one by one. This forum is great, knowing I am not alone and have many others sharing the same trip. It's been a really supportive group so far!
