Today, my tummy doesn't know if it's hungry, nauseated, or what. I did learn one thing. "Do not talk to mother on phone while *sipping* on chocolate protein shake."

Well, today is the first day of my preop diet for RNY (gastric bypass) surgery. I have been on just about all of the diet programs and decided that this tool would be the one to help me finally reach and maintain my goals. I know how to eat healthy. The problem with me has always been the brain/food/emotion connection. It's more complicated that you might think. At least when an alcoholic has to quit drinking, he/she can live without the alcohol. When your addiction is food, you still have to eat to live. That is what I am going to train myself to do . . . Eat to live! OH, and also to love myself so that I will be around for my DH, children, and grandchildren. My goal weight is still 130 so wish me luck on my new journey.

This time I am determined to make my goal a reality. What I have learned over the years and through sparkpeople and my friends is that each "lifestyle" is not a "one-size-fits-all" program. Each of us are different and we use what tools are available to us to help us reach goals.
I will be posting my journey through weight loss surgery and my doctor's eating program here. Yes, it does seem drastic. Yes, I am a little scared and excited at the same time. YES, the benefits far outweight the complications.
Well, unless I die, but then I won't care. Just kidding. It is a minimally invasive procedure done by laparoscopy.
So that is my new beginning. I know there may be some negative responses to this but just as I said, it's not a "one-size-fits-all" program. I think that is why we have so many awesome support groups here.
