So today is day 2 and well, although I'm not too incredibly hungry (which is good), I have a wicked bad headache the last 2 days!!
For those of you that don't know, I am having Lap-Band surgery in 9 days. I believe I am getting the Realize Band. Not sure how big of a band it will be, meaning how many cc's it will be able to hold.
To be honest, I've been super upbeat about the whole having surgery thing, but today had a slight meltdown. With tomorrow being Mother's Day, I can't go to dinner with our families to celebrate, right now, it's just a bummer. I know it will pass and this will be a good thing, but I did way too much research on side effects and it not working for some people the other day and well, it all got into my head.
The good news is, I'm sticking to the very strict pre-op diet. So far since starting at the bariatric clinic, I've lost 19 lbs in about 2 months and hope to lose at least 6 or 7 more before my surgery. Seeing how we have only a few days but a very limited menu and 2 days being only liquid, I'm thinking I may be close. We shall see.
Also, I belong to an online message board and made a declaration today.....I HATE PROTEIN SHAKES!! Yuck!! I'm trying to mix them up, flavor wise, but yuck, yuck, yuck!!!
