Everyone is freaking out except me…

I am lucky to have a lot of people in my life who love me, and who care what happens to me. The problem is, none of them know what being morbidly obese is like, and I think that they all think I have lost my mind. I am lucky in that I think they would rather I just stay morbidly obese than risk death or the complications they know CAN occur. 

Instead of being irritated with people questioning my decision, I am sticking to my rule of understanding that their questions are coming from a place of fear. So, I am just reminding everyone that I want to live a long and healthy life, and this is what I need to get there.

I am committed to the doctors orders, and will uphold my end of the responsibility to be healthy. 

What does my commitment involve? 

  1. Lots of vitamins. Every day. For the rest of my life. 
  2. Water. Every day. All day. Keeping a journal to make sure I know if I got enough in.
  3. Protein. Protein. Protein. I guess my goal is 80 grams, and I need to keep a log on this too.
  4. Walking. Every day possible. Walking to the fridge no longer counts here 🙂
  5. Support group and follow up visits….to minimize my own self sabotage, which is not bypassed in this operation 🙂

My surgery is this Thursday, December 19th – clear liquid diet starts Wednesday, December 18th!

I will post as soon as I can about my surgery and how it felt.
