Pre-Surgery -- March 8, 2009

It is Sunday afternoon, March 8, 2009. Tomorrow, Master and T begin the two week long, pre-surgical liquid diet. The surgery, then will be done on March 23.

As of today, Master weighs 299 pounds, and T weighs 268 pounds.

We just now pulled out the camera and took pictures. These are our "benchmark" photos; the ones that we will be looking back to as a way to mark their progress.

They are both, darned adorable, as far as I'm concerned. So, there's nowhere to go but up from here.

Great "fatso pictures" swan. You done good slave. These really do give us a fabulous pictoral baseline and show the way we are doing this as a family....t and I the bariatirc patients, with our wonderful and loving care and suppot give (and photographer)...our swan.

I love you both so much as we embark on this exciting and scarey adventure.

Mores & Mores,

Mine Always and All Ways,


Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined.

I love the fact that you posted the "BEFORE" and agree (without in any way, meaning any brattiness!) that both look adorable!

It is not an easy journey ahead,not in the least but seek it as the adventure it in truth is- the new path to be taken, the new venues and vistas to enjoy! and perhaps it won't be as arduous as envisioned.

and as you start your journey....

Go n-eírí an bóthar leat.
(May the road rise with you)

Great good luck! Another big plus to losing the weight is the bellies get smaller and the sex gets BETTER! :) I know from when Dan has lost a great deal of weight (he dropped 70 pounds a few years ago and he's dropped 40 pounds here and there over the years) and our sex life always goes through the roof!

No, No, No...Not no place but up to go

No place but DOWN to go (as the weight drops off)!
