Actually I am a VERTICAL SLEEVE CHICK. I had a choice of the band or the sleeve and went for option 2. But hey the journey is very similar.
No cheating for me. I wasn't willing to risk my surgery for any type of food. I do know a lady who cheated on the pre-opt diet and went in for surgery, and they couldn't do it. Her liver was too big. I didn't want to be here. I love my band, and after losing 98 pounds, it feels better than that chinese would have tasted.
I did. I knew I had lost enough weight over the 2 weeks for the surgery so I had chinese the night before. It knew it was my last solid meal for 4 weeks and the last time I could eat rice for 3 months. I don't regret it but I am glad I didn't cheat until it was too late to do any real damage.
