Memorial Weekend!!!

I had a great weekend with my family and friends.  Friday night we had closing ceremonies and movie night for baseball.  Saturday we had our 36th annual family reunion and Sunday we had a BBQ with our friends and family.  Of course everything was centralized around FOOD and DRINKS and I was not good at all.  I only have two more weeks and I feel like I am waiting for the Last Supper!  I am hoping all of that will pass because I had a great time laughing and visiting with my friends around the fire!!!  Sunday was a day to relax with my wonderful husband and clean up the disaster area of course.  Well I am hoping that the weight loss adventure will be a huge success, June 10th just around the corner and June 6th is my pre-op appt.  Maybe next summer I can look forward to the swimming pool and not worry about the swimsuit situation!!! 

I love my family and friends!!!!!  Here's to losing weight and feeling better!!  Cheers

Doctor Appt

Ok - Ants in my pants thats for sure!!!  Yesterday I went to my General Practioner so she knows what is going on and when surgery is scheduled, June 10! Then we went through all of my medications.  Some of them have to be crushed and the others have to be ordered in liquid form, BLAH!  I can't even take cough medicine without gagging, this should be fun LOL.  I wish the days would move forward quickly.  I must succeed, I must succeed, I must succeed.  My husband is already talking about the new clothes I will need.  WooHoo excited about that.  I am very lucky to have such a great husband to support me.

Waiting, Waiting

Ok so after getting some great emails and reading more I am eager, eager, eager.  June 10 seems and eternity away LOL. I even asked my husband if I could call to see if they could move the surgery forward a few weeks.  He is nervous so he didn't feel that was such a good idea.  Thank you to all my friends and my new blogger friends.  I want to just start so I feel better and I can see some progress.

Lap Band

I am about 3 Weeks away from surgery and getting very nervous.  I have fought my weight all of my life and it has effected my health.  Up and down on diets, people criticizing what you eat, everyone tells you to "Just Excercise"   -  I wish all of those things were that easy.  I have a wonderful husband who is very supportive and 3 beautiful children who I want to be around for in the future.  I am excited to say that my surgery has been approved and it is scheduled for June 10.  I am very sad that I will be missing an annual Memorial Golf Tournament for one of our dear, dear friends that we lost, however I know he would tell me to get my butt in there and take care of myself. 

I want to play softball again, take a walk without hurting, buy clothes that look good and take a picture without dreading when it gets developed.  The picture on my blog is one of the pictures that my husband had us take as a family for Mothers Day.  I loved everything he went through to get us together and on a day away to the ocean for family pictures however I just dreaded them coming in, unfortunately digital makes this a much quicker process LOL.  I told him before you hang a family picture please give me a year to change how I look!  Well the journey will begin in 3 weeks. YIKES!! 

I feel like my biggest fight will be with myself because I love to cook and feed everyone!  Well here is to new beginnings and progress with better health! Any advise is appreciated and I appreciate all of the posts that not only help encourage but also symptoms to be prepared for after surgery.

Here is to a New Beginning and many more years with my Husband, Children, Friends & Family!!
