wow, pennie. i think you've set a world''s record - from starting with 'i'm not sure i should do this' to 'surgery date' in just a few weeks!!!!
congrats!!!!! my doc didn't do the two weeks of starvation - although i'd lost nearly 100 pounds before the surgery, so he had absolutely no reason to nag me. but he sure didn't want ANY of his patients to be GAINING weight before the surgery.
and all that 'last supper' stuff? i didn't fall into that - i knew that i'd be able to eat everything again - it would just take some time and patience.
not sure why i had such a different attitude than many people [it happens a lot to me]. but i CAN tell you that wls was truly the last chance for me - and i knew i coudln't continue the way i was. i'd have been dead within a year.
