Away we go!

So today I start Optifast doesn't it sound fan-taste-ic?  I can just tell it will be the most delicious chalk drink EVER!  I "get" to enjoy 4 liver shrinking drinks per day for the next 12 days!  OMG I almost peed a little there from all the excitement. 

When I got home from the pharmacy and actually looked at the optifast and how boring the packaging is and how it really does look like a prescription it was then that I wondered can I do this?  Maybe, just maybe they put all the money into the flavor and that's why the packaging looks like crap.  That could happen right?

 I'm super nervous about all of this because starting the opitfast means I REALLY doing this, that I am that one last step closer to surgery.  I really want to be successful, I am doing this for so many reasons I can't even count. 

I've been looking at before and after pictures of gastric bypass patients, and the more I do, the more I am worried that my va-jay-jay is going to hang down to my knees.  I think I have a regular amount of curiosity about the subject, not in a creepy way, a normal REGULAR way I promise. 

Wish me luck, 'cause I'm gonna need it!

I think you can get through it! I have total faith in you! Just put all your spunk and fun attitude into it and these 15 days will fly! Stick with it and you will not regret your choice. I feel better and better every single day and I am only 3 months out. Your va-jay-jay will thank you :o)

You'll get through this. You're ready. And you're ready to tackle anything that comes your way. Stay strong and keep your eye on the prize. I'm lucky, in that I don't have the liquid diet pre-op. I think I might be going right before you . . .April 11th for me. :-) Hang in there. Keep reaching out to others for support. You will win this fight! :-)
