So, WLS (weight loss surgery) is in about 2.5 weeks. (Yay!)
As the days pass, I realize a few “lasts” are coming up. As in – the last of things are happening… My last carb-heavy meal will be Tuesday night because I start the pre op liver shrink diet Wednesday. My last alcohol beverage will be Tuesday night. Not sure if it will be a beer or margarita! Sobriety is both a sad and welcomed occurrence. I know I need to part ways with my beloved barley and hops for a long while. But I will really miss it.
One of the “lasts” came to me tonight as my husband and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary tonight at Ruth’s Chris. This is the last anniversary we will celebrate with me as a morbidly obese woman.
It makes me wonder what I’ll look like at this time next year? And to think about how much my life is going to change is overwhelming but in a good way. I damn sure won’t be eating the way I did tonight! And our bill won’t be nearly as much. LOL! We had the nicest waiter and the staff gave me a rose for Valentine’s Day. They put rose petals in our dinner table. Nice waiter guy handed me the wine/cocktail list as I was seated. It was a spectacular list! But- knowing my breakup with Shotgun Betty comes in just 2 short evenings, I chose my favorite Hefeweizen instead of a fancy cocktail or wine. Delicious! Here’s a pic of my handsome husband of 19 years❤️ I’m a lucky girl!
