Sorry, didn't mean to yell at all of you but i'm so frikken excited I could poop! (sorry Draz!)
Not on ly that but today my big news came with a call from Nurse H... who gave me my coveted surgery date. This girl right here...me..Dandy...JULIE is going to become banded on July 12th 2012. That's the day after my momma's birthday. I can't believe I finally have a DATE! It's so surreal...this has been a long journey just to get to this point. I know the journey hasn't really begun but holy smokes this was hard!
This would put me starting my Pre-op diet on June 28th ...13 days from now. I have a feeling July 12th is going to feel like a lifetime away but I know it will be here before I know it.
I'm glad my pre-op diet isn't a complete liquid diet, that would have sucked major donkey balls!
It sounds a lot like slim-fast...A shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch and a sensible dinner lol
for real though, protein shake for breakfast and lunch. I can add 2 servings fresh or frozen fruit or I can eat the fruit seperately.
Dinner can be a lean cuisine, or smart one...or lean grilled meat and steamed veggies (I think I like option 2!)
I can have any amount of sugar free beverages, broth, sugar free popscicles and jello.
I can 2 cups per day of Gatorade, Juice, skim milk, sherbet, and diet soda.
Not too bad if I do say so myself. I can do this! I just hope I don't gain 20 lbs in the next 13 days! I feel like every meal is my "last" meal!
OH! I just found out that my best friend is going to do the pre-op diet with me... how did I get so lucky to have a best friend like that?!?!?! From this moment forward I will call my bestie Cupcake, because I think I just may love her more than cupcakes ;)
I think this just about sums it up :)
