On 16th I start a liquid diet in preparation for my upcoming surgery.  I'll be getting a gastric bypass procedure done.  

So, yeah, the time is rapidly approaching.  I'd been looking into/learning about/applying for this for several months and now it's almost here.  

I won't lie, I'm really nervous about it.  I mean, will I be able to do it okay?  Will I have the will I need to make good choices afterwards?  Can I confront and deal with the emotional need to eat certain things even if I'm not hungry for them?  

Eating has been such a huge part of my life, I think there's a portion of me that doesn't want to give it up, like someone clinging to an anchor even as the ship is going down.  I wasn't exaggerating when I said in an earlier post that sometimes all I look forward to during the day is what I'm fixing (or ordering) for dinner.

But then again, I want to be thinner.  I want to have energy.  I'm tired of being tired all the time.  I want to be able to go into a store and actually contemplate buying any of the clothes there because they'll actually fit.  I want to go up a flight of stairs without being winded.  And heck, maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to start dating again.  

But again... it's not as simple as, "Get the surgery and viola! Weight loss!"  

Kind of wish also I had a bigger support circle... but I'm gonna try to rectify that by going to a local support group meeting later this month.

Anyway, thanks for letting me ramble.

I am sure after the operation you'll feel much better. Take care mate, and if you ever need someone just to chat to I can add you on Skype. Remember lots of people on here will be rooting for you.

If I'mn not mistaken, didn't someone else here have this surgery? Hopefully they'll speak up and support you.

Anyway, good luck, we'll be pulling for you!

I think it was Sprite, but I may be wrong.
Anyway, good luck!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
