After years of looking into WLS and then backing away, again and again I have finally taken the step.
I have scheduled my laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding surgery for Friday, January 13th. I am so ready for this journey.
I started my 2 week pre-op Optifast diet on the 30th and I hve dropped 5 pounds since then. I know a lot of it is water weight but it sure is nice to see the scale reading below 300 for a change!
Right now the only thing that could stop the surgery is my psych eval ... which is tomorrow. But I have a feeling that it will go well.
I am as prepared as I can possibly be and now I just keep moving forward one day at a time.
