here we go

So, I have my surgery date...it's September 7th.  I'll be getting the sleeve

My no/low carb diet before surgery starts next week on August 29th and my clear liquid diet starts on September 5th.  I'll be on the clear liquid diet for 2-3 days after surgery, then full liquids, then creamy liquids, then soft foods.  I should be able to work back up to regular foods (as tolerated) in around 6-8 weeks, if I'm remembering correctly. 

I'm nervous and excited but most of all, I'm simply READY to start this new adventure.  If everything goes as planned, I could be down to where I'm supposed to be within the year.  Here's hoping!
