It has been almost 2 weeks since I have had a Diet Coke. I haven't had any carbonated drinks actually, which is a complete change for me. My drinks have consisted of water, coffee (when I have a caffeine withdrawal headache coming on) and lemonade. Eventually, the lemonade will have to go as well because of the sugar content, however I need something to get me through the first little bit of my post-Diet Coke life.
Oh, what I wouldn't give to have a drink of something carbonated. I'm not sure why. Is it because I am used to have a carbonated beverage every day? I don't know, but I know the cravings come and go. I am sick of water. Why is it we need food and water for survival, but yet it becomes such a big part of our lives? Social events all include drinks and food. Anyways, I am rambling.
My next series of pre-op hoops have been set up. My psychological evaluation is July 29th, my second dietician appointment is August 6, my EGD is set-up for September 4th and my September surgeon appointment is September 16th. October will be the official 6th month mark and after I have an appointment that month all the paperwork can be submitted to the insurance company. This process is actually going by pretty quickly.
Also, in August my husband and I will have a fun weekend away - I can't wait! Lots of things to look forward too.
