da da daaaa da da da da da... da da daaaaa.... (okay thats the final countdown music as my head sings it)
So tomorrow morning T - 10 hours, I start my one week pre-op diet. I thought I was doing pretty good staying on at least my regular eating schedule, but I've been really bad the last few days... a blizzard (or two), onion rings, steak, all things I'm stepping away from starting tomorrow. I'm ready. I've been planning and buying, and contemplating, and I'm really just ready to get this party started. I have warned family I might be a bit of a witch while I "detox." I am ready.
And just in time - As part of my employee insurance plan, we have to participate in a wellness program. If you earn enough points throughout the year, you get the "cheap" insurance prices. I've always had to do extra work to make up for the fact that my BMI was over. All of my other numbers have ALWAYS come back normal. I got blood drawn last week and this time I was just over the line for pre-diabetes. I knew it was coming, but always thought it would be much further away. My grandfather died at 60 with advanced diabetes and had had multiple heart attacks. My mom is severely diabetic and has been for probably 15 years (she went untreated for years). This makes me feel all the more comfortable, right and ready to get banded.
