Hi Feeling very nervous, surgery is on the 12th Feb.... I have been reading lots of different forums and some put me at ease others make me feel I am going to cancel the surgery. My husband wants me to stop reading everything online. I can't stop. I have my first appt with the dietician today. Hoping that will get rid of my anxiety. I know I need to lose weight but will I enjoy my life after the surgery. I love to cook, I love going to dinner with friends having a few wines will I just want to stay at home not bothering to entertain. I have about 30kilos to lose (keep thinking should be able to do myself with diet and exercise. I have tried for years. I lose about 15kilos. Then all back on again). Would love to hear from anyone that has gone through the surgery and had similar thoughts.
I'm headed for a short girls weekend away tonight and it will consist of a lot of lovely food places, cheese, fudge, berries etc. This week I think I had a (sort of) epiphany about my band. I was browsing through the forums on here and someone had linked The 8 Golden Rules of Lapband. I decided to watch them and the diagrams really helped my head understand what my body is going through when I eat food. I actually look a lot away from it, and this week feel like I have done a much better job of listening to my body, abiding my the 8 Golden Rules and in return, I haven't had too much drama!! One of the big things for me was accepting that in the morning my band will not tolerate food. So all this week I started with tea and then around lunch time I would try something easy like fish. It seems to have been working well for me. Another rule I like is stop eating after 20 minutes. And the other one is wait a full minute between bites. All of those have been lifesavers for me this week. So I am nervous and excited to see how my band and I cope this weekend. There will be a lot of temptation!
