5 Weeks Pre-Op

As I write this its actually more like 4.5 weeks until surgery and my excitement isn’t waning.

Whilst I haven’t lost a lot more, probably only a kg or so, the number one rule that the nurse gave me was not to gain any more weight.  So we are doing alright on that front!  I haven’t been swimming but I have upped my steps and finally gotten around to replacing the battery in my Fitbit.  Cos everyone knows those steps don’t count unless they are logged on your Fitbit – am I right?

Now that my dates confirmed, I haven’t been shy in telling people.  I figure that they are going to work it out pretty quickly once my body starts changing but its really surprising the amount of people that think its okay to give me their opinion on what I should be doing – and that eating the proper foods and exercising should be all I need to do.
Yea, cheers, thanks asshole.  If that was all it took do you think I’d be putting myself and my wallet through this?

Apparently surgery is the easy way out.

As far as I’m concerned, both them and their opinions can take a long walk off a short pier.  Dick heads.

Even now, I can feel my self confidence returning, I’m wearing makeup, coloured clothing, I feel a change in the air.

  • Oh, I just LOVED the people that would tell me, “why don’t you just go on a diet?” ….ummm yeah, because that has worked out SO WELL thus far! You are doing this for YOU….screw other judgey people 🙂

    • Yes! Which new one shall I try next?
      I even went to a Nutrition Seminar last night (but it turned out to be a sales pitch by two personal trainers with no nutrition qualifications) and they kept repeating the energy equation says you just have to eat less and exercise more. Well my 1400 calorie a day equation says they are full of shit!

  • That’s one thing I’ve been scared about… telling people. Right now my husband knows (obviously), my best friend, and my human resources manager at work (but only because I’ve been begging her for a couple of years to convince our company to increase the health insurance coverage to include bariatric surgery). Oh, and I mentioned to my mother that I was looking into it.

    But I’m afraid to tell anyone else out of fear of judgment, just like you said above. Being accused of taking the easy way out.

    I hope one day to have the guts to tell them all to go to hell! 😉

    • Getting up the guts is kinda necessary – whether you tell them or not, people are going to know that something more radical has happened. Let me ask you a question, do you really care what they think? Is it their business?
      If they decide to judge you harshly, then they have already made that decision. But its their problem and not yours. This is your body, your health, your life and them and all their judgments can get stuffed. What your psychologist will probably talk to you about though is that most people, especially the ones that love and care for you, will be there to support you once you tell them. And thats a huge tick in the pros column for letting a few people know whats happening. Best of luck chick – know I support you!

  • Oh my freaking god the opinions and advice do my head in! Good on you for totally disregarding their opinions it’s not worth paying any attention to them. You keep doing what you know you need to.
