Days since surgery

Got a new surgery date....finally!!

Hey guys thanks for forgiving me for being such a loser when it comes to blogging lately and I'm trying to get out of this funky cloud that's been following me around. I went to see my surgeon on Tuesday and he agreed to do the surgery, but they had to get a new authorization from my insurance company. Well yesterday I got the call and the surgery is set for the 8th and I am very happy with that.
There has been a lot of crazy stuff going on financially and personally and everytime I think of sitting down to write about it, it just overwhelms me. My surgeon (who I love) gave me the side-eye when I went in because in the 12 days since I last saw him I had gained 10lbs lol who the heck does that! Me that's who!
I'm guessing the water retention from my cycle and the pity party I threw last weekend complete with cookies and bored eating made this accomplishment possible. It rained all weekend here (well its been raining every single day) so I basically copped a squat on the couch, cried at everything and ate at random. As much as I love him I was gonna say Dr. Dietrick, don't gimme no shit I'm going through it right now man! And if I had a grip on this B.S. I wouldn't be in here stalking you! But luckily it didn't come to that.
It's funny cuz I feel those 10lbs too, not just in the whole clothes tight way but in a weighed down with burden kind of way. I am now like 4lbs under my known heaviest ever (but I didn't exactly weigh myself a lot) but I feel like I'm 20lbs over my heaviest, but I know that's because of the funk I am in.
So now I am back on the lovely pre-op diet, 2 protein shakes a day and 1 meal of meat and green veggies, the last time I lost like 23lbs in 12 days so I'm hoping for a repeat!
I am gonna share some of the reasons for my funkiness later I just wanted to share the good news with you patient people who have been so kind to me.

Later for now!!
