Apprehension about pre-op

I find myself only a few days away from beginning the pre-op "Full Liquid" diet for my lap-band surgery. This concept has me a bit nervous to be perfectly honest.

I am excited to start this new journey in my life, but I just can't shake the fact that this is going to be soo much harder then I think it will. That is not to mean that I think this is going to be easy...but still!

For those of you who don't know the pre-op diet is made up of 1000 calories of low carb low fat protein shakes. I have devised a plan to consume them every hour for the five days that they are all that I get. The only major hard hurdle that I see in my future is Christmas day...Because of my surgery date of December 27th, I get only clear liquids starting Christmas morning. That means I get Jello (which is gross), chicken broth, and special k protein water. I get to sit and watch while my family eats the awesome dinner that I am going to make!
