3 more days till surgery day.

Today I am feeling pretty good. But a few days ago I was having a really rough time. Since I am on a clear liquid and protein drink diet right now it has been hard. I feel as if I am starving myself. And to make it worse I am on my period which if your a woman you know that makes you more hungry then normal.

I am a little upset at all the negative reaction I am getting out of my decision to have this surgery. People are constantly saying why can't you do the weight loss with out surgery? You did it before! Well to those people, you are not in my shoes. Obviously if that diet worked for me then I would not be needing the surgery!

And just so everyone knows why I am doing this and stop telling me the reasons I shouldn't do it. Please listen to this and do your research as I have.

I want to be able to run around with my kids before they are all grown up. Unfortunately I didn't have that with my mom. As my mom has been heavy all her life. Growing up she was never able to run around with us, play ball, or go on rides at the state fair. That was hard for me, and now as a over weight mom myself I am having to do the same thing. And my kids are always asking me to play this, play that and I can't do it.

Then another reason is my family has a history of diabetics, high blood pressure, etc... I have been fortunate not to have any of these illnesses and hoping to avoid them all together. So that I may live a longer and healthier life.

I know right now it is hard and I can't have all the foods I would like to have, but that is a sacrifice I am willing to make to spend more of a quality and a healthier life with my family.

10 Days left till surgery

I have 10 days left till surgery and this diet is killing me. I am on just three to four protein drinks a day and clear liquids. Good side is I have lost 8 pounds in three days.
It is hard to make food for my husband and kids that I use to eat and can't. I sure hope that when I have the surgery everyone is right by saying I won't feel to hungry or even crave these foods much.

Before surgery

This is my journey with Gastric Bypass

I had to go through six months of eating healthier and exercising so that my insurance would approve my surgery. And now I have completed that hurtle. I only loss about 10 pounds with that task.

But my surgery is in two weeks (May11th) and I am now on a protein and liquid diet. I started this diet on April 29, 2010, and have already loss 4 pounds. In one day! WOW it is pretty cool. I only have 11 more days to go. Wish me luck:)
