I HAVE MY SURGERY DATE! August 24th! I should be upset that its so far away, but I'm just happy! Happy that this life long battle with no assistance is coming to an end! Plus the more I thought about it the better the day sounded. I am extremly busy at work and it will slow down around the first week of August, I'm getting used to going to graduate school full time and working full time so by August I should be better adjusted and I'm my cousin's maid of honor for her wedding this summer so I was worried the surgery would come right before or during the wedding. Bummer that the surgery is a week after my birthday, but its just a late birthday present. My doctor said I could get off the protein diet and start it again July 12th (1 month before my pre-op appointment), but I decided I'm going to stick to it, but cheat a lil. The shakes fill me up for breakfast and lunch, and dinner I'm getting used to eating a smaller meal. But I'm so going to get in some bad carbs here and there before July 12th and maybe a margarita or two :). My goal for my August pre-op date is to be 15lbs lighter than I am today...I might only be 10lbs, but you never know!
