I am approaching the ONE year mark. I’ve been doing the countdown all over again without really thinking about it.
One year ago…
I started my liver-shrinking diet on the 22nd of October last year. It was a lot of shakes, a whole lotta water, no caffeine and just a little actual food. The drop in carbs made me feel like crap (“carb flu” is an accurate description). I stuck to it – I added chips every now and then to get some salt…I was craving it. It came right on the heels of a business trip – where we indulged in some wonderful meals in San Diego.
This time a year ago, I was working to keep busy so I didn’t notice I wasn’t eating. And I was starting to get nervous. Before it was over, I’d have a full-blown panic attack in the shower the morning of surgery – only to see my youngest had drawn Luigi in the soap scum…and I felt better.
My one year visit with the surgeon is a week from tomorrow. I’m excited to see what he has to say.
Thanks for joining me!
