Congratz as you start this exciting journey! I have never regretted having WLS. I too was told I was "not that big" etc - but the sleep apnea that I had as a result of weight gain scared me into deciding my life was worth making this change.
I would suggest you take before surgery pics, and also measurements (arms, chest, waist, hips, legs). I regret not having taken measurements pre-surgery. Believe me, those measurements will greatly motivate you as you see the inches as well as pounds come off.
Though you are most likely dreading the 2 week pre-op (not sure if it is all liquids for you), the first 2 days were the hardest for me. It got easier after that. I too have a very supportive hubby who was careful not to eat or cook around me lol. That may not be practical in your home, but I did better not smelling food
If you have sleep apnea, make sure to bring your CPAP to the hospital on surgery day. Anesthesia can really mess with your oxygen levels so the CPAP will be essential.
Most importantly, stay on the plan your surgeon/nutritionist gives you. It's SO worth it. You are so worth it! We look forward to following your progress and we are here if you have any questions/concerns. <3
