So tomorrow is my big day. Banded I Shall Be.
I've spent the last three hours trying to come up with something witty or inspiring to impart but I just find my mind wandering back to these four things:
- Surgery. Anesthesia. Living Will.
- Size 10, size 10, size 10, size 10....
- I AM FREAKING STARVING. After 3 days of pretty much entirely liquids/purees and only clear liquids today all I can think about is bagels and steaks and buttercream frosting. I seriously do not know how some of you did a 2 week liquid diet sans band.
- George Clooney (he is ALWAYS there, in my mind, just hanging out, being sexy).
I wish there was some book out there that outlined exactly how long it will take me to recuperate, how hungry I'll be, what I'll feel like 2 months from now, how much my life and relationship with food will change. If my stomach will ever not look like an ugly old man.
But after reading all of your blogs, I can see that everyone has a different experience. That makes it harder for me to get a handle on things. Can't you all please do something to make it easier on me? ;-)
Seriously though, just wish me luck. I'm about to embark on a road well traveled by others but brand new to me and I need all the direction you can offer.
See you on the flip side.
