4 days to go

Firstly huge thanks for the comments, it's so nice to have the support of all of you, you've all done so well.

2nd day on the pre-op diet today, its actually going ok, my lovely husband has cooked all of his and the childrens food so that helps, I can smell it though!

I took my daughter, Isobel, who's 5 to the cinema today, we went with one of her school friends and her mother who is also a friend, she doesn't know about my surgery though and couldn't understand why I didn't eat any of the junk available, I wanted to but I didn't.
The day was kind of ruined by my daughter comparing something to her Mummy's big fat tummy, just what you want to hear! I feel quite sad, its true though I suppose.

Only 4 days to go, I need to go food shopping but don't think that I can face it, plus George hates it and whines the whole way around so I think i'll do an online grocery shop.

Just thinking about exercise, have just watched a program about Eddie Izzard, not sure how well known he is outside of the uk, he did 43 marathons in 51 days, what a man!


  1. 4 days it will be here before you know....Eddie Izzard is a STAR....

  2. Wow - You're getting close now. The preparation(shopping, cleaning) will make the time fly.
    I love Eddie Izzard - I had no idea he ran marathons.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :0) I can't wait to read your adventure!!

  4. Eddie (look at me on first name terms with him!) did it for charity, he'd never ran really before and did only 2 weeks training. He went through hell but he did it.

    I can't believe how close it is now either, have been having a nightmare trying to arrange getting home but i've sorted it today so feel much better.

    Thanks for all your comments x

  5. Hi Alison!
    4 days will fly by.
    I know firsthand how much it hurts when our wonderful children talk about our HUGE this or that body part. Gee, thanks kiddo!
    I look forward to following you on your journey!
