I am going to go out and sin this morning. Tomorrow I will be on a total liquid diet and it will be a long day, most likely. I will try to keep busy so as not to think about food. I have decided to go out and have some pancakes because I will not be eating for at least a day and a half. Hope to be getting some good news Tuesday. I am starting to get really nervous about it and still have 2 days to wait. I don't wait well. Please send some good, positive thoughts my way.

While some people may say so, I personally don't think it is a sin to indulge now and then. On Valentine's Day my husband and I went out to dinner and I enjoyed a small amount of dessert. I was shocked to find that I did not spike afterward. I think an occasional indulgence can be good for the soul. Hang in there. You're going to get through this. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I agree. There are time I will eat pizza and go overboard, I say afterwards that my BS is going to be high the next time I test but I get a surprise and find that it went down. I guess sometimes it is good to over indulge on you favorite foods.

I haven't had pancakes in so long and they were so good. I didn't even spike too badly after I ate, but I did make sure to go walking for a while after eating, plus I did take a few units more of insulin. It isn't something I do often and I think today will keep me happy for a long time. Managed to fill my time with some favorite movies and needlework today and have lots to do tomorrow to help pass the time.

Hi Sue,
Your in my thoughts and prayers are with you. You'll make it through
tonight and tomorrow with no problem. Just keep telling yourself this
is for the greater good. Think how much freer you'll be with the reversal of this surgery. As for your "sin"…everyone needs to do it once in awhile. Have an extra pancake on me. ;-) Hugs, VL

Thanks. I really want this surgery and I feel I am as healthy as I'm going to be. Bs under control, bp under control and cholesterol is good too. I am mentally prepared and not the ill person I was when I had the first surgery and I survived that. Part of what scares me is how weak I was after the first surgery. I do not want to feel like that again. It took me 2 full mos to be able to be on my own again. I am strong. I can do this.

Just think, just two more days. There is a light at the end of the tunnels. We are all thinking of you and hoping for the best

You know what? I think it really helps to have people sending good thoughts my way. I am feeling more positive this evening. It's going to happen. And then I am going to tackle this weight issue with a vengeance
