I know I've already made quite a few steps in this journey towards a better future but I will always think of today as the day it all began.
Today I officially start my pre-op diet that will last for two whole weeks and then my friend and I will be boarding a plane on our way to Mumbai India!!
I have to admit it's going to take a lot of will power to stick with this diet. But I just have to keep reminding myself that it will all be worth it in the end. A little over a week ago my case manager called to talk about scheduling my flight and surgery and we got it scheduled for me to leave April 2nd and have my surgery on the 4th. Before I hung up she told me to go ahead and start my pre-op diet on March 14th. To be honest I hadn't bought the things on my list to start so I decided to put it off to the next day. On the 15th I ate what was required and drank my protein shakes but didn't have my meal replacement shakes (I know shame on me) for some reason I kept psyching myself out. It's like my brain was telling my stomach it was going to be nasty. Luckily that evening my nutritionist called and informed me that I was actually supposed to start my pre-op diet today March 18th.

Ran out of time. But will have a part two as soon as the kids go to bed. :)
