I am so excited and nervous about my surgery. I know it is the right and healthy thing to do. I will be at Mission Hospital and I know I am in good hands. I have been on a liquid diet for almost two weeks to shrink my liver. Helps in the surgery (and a true test of will power). It has also helped me lose a few pounds. So I am already on my way to my 100lb goal. I keep telling myself I will be stronger, faster, healthier and happier.
Having this surgery means letting go of something I love so very much. Food. Food has been my friend for a very long time. Our relationship has gone beyond what it should and out of control...so I thought it only appropriate that with this new surgery and lifestyle that we part ways in our current relationship to start anew!
I have to let you go. It will be hard to not always have you there for me. I have depended on you for way too long and for way too much. You were there when I was happy and we always celebrated. When I was sad you were they to try to pick me up. I always looked forward to our time. You had me at that delicious aroma. I will miss you on our rainy Sunday afternoon dinners, midnight snacks and romantic trips where we could go out every meal. Our special places, mostly drive thru and Italian. I will miss. Oh Food..... you have meant so much.
My health is more important and I want to be with my family more. I say goodbye. Not totally but we will now just be friends. I will only ask of you what I need to get by and not just taking as much as I can get. I wish you well. "Joy and Best Dishes" as our friend Paula would say. I will miss you.
