Food Funeral|| Stressing about surgery
Hey, everyone! This is a small post update on my sleeve gastrectomy. If you are new here, welcome and I am happy that you stopped by 🙂
So the food funeral is officially done! Honestly, when I posted a video about the food funeral I felt ashamed. I watched so many other women going through this journey and from the beginning they talked about eating right etc. I mean cmon guys no one has had their own secret food funeral?? Why not talk about it? Why not be honest with the process? We are all going on this journey because we are fluffy. If we really ate so dang healthy we may or may not be having a fat problem.
My goal is to keep it as real as possible. Yes, I ate horribly the past couple weeks but that doesn’t mean I am not serious about what I am about to do. Believe me when I say I wouldn’t drop almost 10k on something I am not serious about. Anyways enough with my mini rant to myself. Bare with me today is my day 1 of my pre-op diet and I am not allowed to have coffee.
I wasn’t sure what pre-made shake I would like so I bought a pack of the premier protein in strawberry and the muscle milk in strawberries ‘n creme. I actually love them both. So many people hate the muscle milk because it’s a little on the sweeter side. As of right now, it’s my fav I mean hello it tastes like an ice cold shake yum!. I am stocking up for my pre-op week and going to have a few on hand for post-op. I heard that my taste buds may change and I may not like the same brands after surgery so trial and error here we come.
Some things I would like to point out with my process so far is I have been stressing so much about getting everything done around the house before I go into surgery. I have been feeling so overwhelmed with all these unfinished projects. After having a little freak out the other day I had a moment of clarity. Why am I trying to “complete” everything? I am not planning for my own funeral. Things in my life aren’t complete and won’t be complete because I am not done with life. As silly as this may sound after having the thought I felt so much relief.
In the past week or so I have been having crazy dreams. They are not nightmares but dreams that are associated with the surgery. I may be a little anxious about what to expect. Also, I noticed I have been having a harder time getting to sleep I have been a little more restless.
Overall though guys I am excited about this change and really excited to share my experience with the world.
