Just a quick check-in to keep myself accountable:
Day 5 (Saturday) started with a weigh in of 288.0 pounds. I drank 3 protein shakes, a ton of water spiked with Crystal light, and 3 popsicles. I have decided that I fucking hate broth and jello. I had some energy (finally) to run those errands that needed to be run. I even cooked a giant Korean meal for J and Footlong. Anxiety wise, I talked to my doctor (at the urging of my anesthetist friend) and was given a prescription for Ativan to treat my anxiety. I feel so much better. Now I’m not scared at all—I’m fucking excited. Talking to my friend Shannon made all the difference.
Day 6 (Sunday) started with a morning weigh-in at 287.o pounds. I’m down 6.5 pounds since Tuesday morning. I’ve always been bothered by pink stretch marks on my belly and hips, but this morning I noticed that 90% of them have faded significantly. Cool!
Tomorrow after Footlong gets out of school we are headed to Phoenix. I can have clear liquids only tomorrow (no protein shakes), and I have to drink an entire bottle of Mag Citrate, a laxative, at 1:00 pm. Me and my friend, Deena, are going for pedicures tomorrow night, and here’s hoping I don’t have the urge to poop at the nail salon. LOL.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
