Continuing my WLS series...
While waiting to get approval and a date for surgery, I had lots of appointments, plus all that reading.
Bottom line, I had one thing to do: my surgeon said I needed to lose 10-20% before he'd give me a surgery date.
So I got to work!
Now you will probably ask - I know I sure did - if I can lose the weight before surgery, why don't I just continue that, and skip the surgery?
The answer is simple. I don't believe that I can. History has shown that I can lose 25-30 pounds, and then I fall off the wagon. You'd say that saying that reinforces it, but it doesn't have to be true. Yep. True. And that's what I have said at the start of every new "lifestyle change" or diet - this is the one!
I've been doing this for most of my life, the last 40 years!
And I don't want to risk another failure.
Ok, I know this is not guaranteed either.
But I think my chances are pretty darned good.
Yes, I'll put what I did to lose the weight in my next blog.
Thanks for asking!
