Is this weekend over yet?

Holy Crap - I feel like my stomach is going to jump out of my throat and find a new owner...and honestly at this point I wish I did not have a stomach.  I don't know what is hardest...having a husband and daughter that still gets to eat (I know they have to) or that I have read all these posts on the internet about other bandsters that got to each something they actually chewed. 

The protein shakes are HORRIBLE. I have this huge stock of them and after the surgery they will be used as a smoothly base because they most definitely need some help otherwise. 

At this point I would eat anything regardless of the taste.....nothing added to canned tuna, lettuce leaves, one bite of a meat..any meat. 

Is being skinny worth this?  YES but do I need reminding?? YES!

I am making it...i am ...but I am not happy about it - or in good spirits.

The only bright side is that I don't have a headache today like I did yesterday from no caffeine. 

Maybe a big glass of crystal light will lighten my spirits...going to get some now!!


  1. Hang in there, I am sure all of us can relate at some point. ;)

  2. You can make it! Everything I've read says this phase is NORMAL and TEMPORARY....two words to keep in mind. Keep it up, girl!!


  3. Hang in there! You'll get through it and things will get easier on the other side... ugh to the no caffeine headache. I never gave up caffeine for my surgery.
    Yes: TEMPORARY is the key as BP says above.

  4. I was so ANGRY the first week of my pre-op. I hated everyone who was eating food, a lot. Like everyone else said, it gets easier and it's worth it. You are stronger than you think you are. Start living your life like a skinny girl now. Get your head into it, you new life is on it's way! Good luck!

  5. Hi there - new follower. Good luck with your journey. Try to stay positive about the shakes. It's totally worth it. If you are struggling with the protein shakes is there another brand that has a better taste?

  6. Thanks everyone!! I am doing better today aside from being home with a sick baby. My stomach is not growling like a freaking lion but I did eat an egg last night. :-)
