It’s the day before surgery for me. I’ve been battling a sore throat and cough the last week, which has left me exhausted.
I spent most of yesterday wondering if I’m doing the right thing having surgery. And worried about still being sick before I even got to surgery. Felt quite overwhelmed and wondered why the hell I’m doing this.
I’ve been madly searching on Instagram for inspiration. I’m nervous I’m not ready for this. Worried about getting through liquid diet still and nervous about knowing what to do after.
Yet still know it’s what I need to be doing.

I hope everyone is doing really well. Take care.

Ok, surgery tomorrow and why is it so hard to receive a fax? My cardiologist has now faxed clearance 3 times omg!! I am very happy I took off this whole week so I could drive and get the stupid paper in hand and deliver it to the Bariatrics Dr omg! They told me to make sure I take a copy just to make sure things go ok tomorrow... really omg:( I have tried to make sure this is all done and yet the leave me stressing for tomorrow..sigh. Come on 5:30am so I can get this started and over!!
Get the frustrations out of the way. Tomorrow we are going to have a great day, everything will go well, and we will have a quick recovery!!!!

Best of luck to you and everyone else in the roster for tomorrow!!! 😊

I'm at Toronto Western hospital waiting to be prepped for surgery. So nervous as I has a little one at home with ASD who needs me. He is a big part of why I'm doing this RNY. I need to be healthy and active to be able to meet his needs. Pray for me for a complication free surgery and recovery!

Sent from my LM-Q910 using BariatricPal mobile app

Best of luck to you!!!!!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
