Finally the waiting is basically over.
Yes I still have 18 days to go before my surgery but I have started my pre-op phase so I finally feel like I am doing something.
I have also paid the rest of my out of pocket expensive and it seems I over budgeted and I have a spare $500 so I am very happy about that.
As for my Optifast diet I am officially four days in and I finally feel like I am getting into a routine with it all.
Lunch - Bar
Dinner- Chicken and vegetable stir-fry (type of thing)
It's been hard though, no matter how prepared I thought I was. I did not realised how many habits and patterns I had developed around food. Thankfully catching myself when I attempt to fall back on these habits is getting easier and it is interesting to assess the reasons or causes behind these habits.
I have lost almost 3 kgs so far which I am very happy about but I am worried I am falling into a bit of an obsessive behavior in regards to weighing myself. Already I am weighing myself multiple times a day and I can't help but wonder if I am like this before the op what will I be like afterwards. I guess that is something I will have to tackle as it comes along.
Next step is the actual operation......so bring it on!!!!
