Quick Check-In due to popular demand!

Several people have messaged me and said I need to write in my blog... it's been a couple of weeks. There's a reason for that- I don't feel like I have anything to say! LOL
Surgery is in 6 days! Which means 5 more days of this liquid protein diet. NONE of my friends who've had bariatric surgery had to do a fast beforehand... 2 weeks of this has sucked!! I can have a little bit of plain chicken or tuna, etc. but the majority is protein shakes. Under 800 cal/day and over 70g protein/day.
The thing that has saved me is Carl's Jr's Original Grilled Chicken salad- large and filling, and exactly 200 cals.
About a week ago, I got really freaked out for about 2 days. "What on earth am I about to do?! Removing a major organ by my own choice? Maybe everyone is right, and I should just do this "myself"... {I've been over that in prior blogs so I won't go into detail about 'not doing it myself'} Anyway, I fessed up to my husband that I was finally actually scared. He said I'm doing it for the right reasons. He also vocalized exactly what I've been saying in my head: the only reason I've been able to lose the 40 lbs is because I've had an immediate goal I had to meet... any time I cut my self some slack, I've started rapidly going in the wrong direction and had to change my behavior all over again. I would NOT have done this without the motivation of surgery. Only you WLS'ers can get what I'm saying, I'm sure.
SO HERE'S THE QUESTION: How scared were you before surgery? Out of this 3 month process, I freaked out for 2 days.
My husband was actually relieved... "you're finally nervous? join the club with the rest of us!" He was more concerned that I was the only one who WASN'T scared, LOL. Anyway, with his reassurance, and knowing he's absolutely right-- I totally haven't exercised once since meeting the dr's weight loss goal a month ago; I'd gain the weight back in no time- I am now excited and more chill again.
Til next time!
