I am waiting and it seems like an eternity. I still don't have a date for the surgery, but the promise that next week I will seems exciting. While I wait, I am expected to continue to lose weight. Well, I am staying steady. How do I do this? I try to keep my calories around 1300 a day. While I wait, I am also expected to continue my diet and exercise journal. So far, this has already been inspected 3 times by the surgeon and the nutritionist. I suppose I will go under the microscope again with this. It is a true test of my endurance with the upcoming holidays. But then, really, the true test will be the rest of my life. I am taking 100 mg of calcium along with a multivitamin daily. I am expected to maintain the walking as well and use hand weights to maintain muscle strength.
And so, I wait.
