It’s day 11 of my 42 day pre-operation diet (POD) and it’s the first day I have not cheated but the day is only half over. I’m feeling a mixture of things. Shame because I have given in to temptation over and over again. Anger towards the surgeon. I just want to yell at him: “HEY – If I could stick to diets and lose the weight myself I wouldn’t NEED the surgery you moron!” Sadness because eating is the only thing in my life that gives me pleasure these days and now I’m about to lose that too. Frustration because how come I can’t get control over this aspect…
The countdown to surgery is about to begin. I start my six week pre-op diet in just a few days.
