I decided to get on the scale last night. I have lost another 3 pounds. I was told that on this particular pre-op diet you could lose 10 to 15 pounds. I can see how that can happen. I have given it some thought and realized I hadn't been taking my medication over the weekend. One of my meds is a diuretic. I must have been retaining some extra fluid. I am happy to see the numbers on the scale change. It makes me feel this pre-op diet isn't all for nothing since I can't see my liver to see the results.
Ron, (he used to be called "Babe"), asked me if the scale moved in the right direction. lol I seem to find myself sharing everything I am going through and feeling with either Ron or "D". I am blessed to have them in my life. I told Ron last night I was hungry, he said something along the lines of its understandable. "D" on the other hand keeps reminding me basically that I have to do my part before the surgery or I will be cut open and closed back up with no surgery. I told "D" I am just complaining as loud as I can!!!
Yesterday I had to run to Walmart. I literally stopped in the Italian food section and picked up pizza crust to buy everything I needed for homemade pizza. I didn't buy any of it. :) I am very proud of myself. I proved to myself once again that I am ready for the lifestyle change. I will admit pizza still sounds good. :)
Have a great day!
