As I mentioned in my last post, my lapband surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning. In preparation, my surgeon has me on a 3 day clear liquid diet - water, Crystal Light, sugar-free popsicles, sugar-free jello, chicken, beef or vegetable broth. Yep, that's it. That's all she wrote. I can't believe I made it to day 3 without diving head first into the pop chips in my pantry. Right now I'd give someone a hundred bucks if I could eat a slice of pizza and get away with it. Food addict much? It is times like these when I realize how truly and utterly food obsessed I am. I mean really, this is only for 3 days! I should be able to do this no problem but I feel like I am hanging on by a fingernail.
But I'm excited. Excited and nervous. Can't wait to meet my band and get started. I am just so grateful that there are some many great blogs out there by folks who have been through this. It really gives me courage and perspective.
