So I started the liquid diet for my surgery

Still not 100% sure when I am having my revision to the sleeve, but I'm supposed to act as though it will happen on the 16th as my surgeon's office is seeing if they can make it happen.

If not, I'll be having surgery on February 13th as that is the next possible date for me personally.

I have to admit that I've been dreading and excited about the liquid diet at the same time.

Dreading it because it's a liquid diet and pre-surgery it's just plan hard.  Post surgery you aren't feeling well and don't feel like eating anyway so it wasn't a big deal to me.

Pre-surgery though you are going through so much anxiety already and then you have to force a change that is best for you medically, but the food issues are still there.

Last time, when I was doing this for the band, I made it through 10 days before eating some of my son's mac and cheese and then I got such bad stomach issues that I almost had to be out of work.  At least I'll have that to remember whenever I have an urge to "cheat".

I've been trying to wean off caffeine again and went cold turkey today.  It will be hard as I didn't get good sleep last night.  I'm so tired right now.  Hopefully I'll sleep better tonight when I get home.
