Stepping off the Edge…

It’s quarter of five in the AM and I’m due at the Surgery Center at six. I’m nervous as hell for the actual operation…but definitely looking forward to the long-term results.

I’ve packed a bag with some essentials—blankets, PJs, my birth control, and other items—as I do believe I’ll be staying overnight at the Surgery Center. Now it’s just a matter of waiting until it’s time to leave.

And other than that…I don’t really have all that much to say. I’ve said a lot of it already.

A part of me is still questioning if I actually want to do this, given how drastic it is—so if you’re also a pre-op bariatric patient and worried that, at zero hour, you still haven’t fully made up your mind, I can tell you you’re not the only one. But I personally have more riding on this than just losing weight, as well you might, too. I’m doing this as much to protect my voice by way of fixing my hiatal hernia as anything else. That’s something I’m absolutely certain that I’m ready for.

So I’ll catch you on the flipside, then.

Time left: 1 hr 15 min

Final weight: 239.2 lbs

    I just wanted to let you know that I was praying for you this morning around 6 am. I hadn’t read this post yet, but I am glad I prayed when I did. Will keep praying for you throughout the rest of the day.]
