So close

Monday, November 26, 2012

So, tommorrow I will be 14 days from the surgery that will hopefully help me get my life back on track. I am super nervous. I have not been eating very well this past week. I think that in my head I am eating all the things that I will not be able to eat after surgery. Kind of a final good by to the food that I love but makes me miserable. On the flip side of that, I am so terrifie that I am going to gain weight and have my surgeon refuse to do my surgery. He wanted me under 300 pounds and my last and final weight in I was 298. I am really struggling with that. I was 301 this morning. I am scared that I am going to get to the hospital, they are going to weigh me and be like, NO SURGERY FOR YOU!!! HAHAHA!!! If you can't tell, my nerves are starting to kick in. Every single surgery stopping scenario is racing through my mind right about now. Breathe Anna!!!!!

    During the weeks before surgery, I 'hyperfocused' on WLS success stories (someone used this word when I blogged about what I was doing and it really fit! emoticon )

I would spend hours reading SP posts, watching Youtube and clicking the before and after pics on obesityhelp.com trying to imagine me as an 'after' emoticon

Post surgery, I've learned that if I actually blog and post myself, it helps me more than if I just lurk and read what others have to say. And people have said that my posts have helped them.

Hang in there and post, post, post!

    the nerves are the worst part!

I had to do a two week pre-op diet that left me half starved and insane the two weeks prior to my surgery.

I would go around my house sniffing the carpet to make sure the cat didn't pee on it (my cats have never gone outside the litter box) I talked non-stop (something I do when I am nervous) I washed everything in my house that could be washed, Cleaned like a crazy person... the list goes on and on.

The one thing I found that helped with the nerves was shopping. I would go to stores and wander around for hours. Same with the gym. That really helped too!

Best of luck my friend!
