came home yesterday....and did my dvd step aerobics .....

while i was doing my thing, it occurred to me, that my body was working..

and it was getting stronger and healthier with each step i take up and down..

and that is what having WLS is all about.

recently read a post on band vs sleeve vs bypass

does it really matter???

get the one you want and will adhere to the instructions and GET well

each day that passes is a day lost......

is how i see it...

i have the band and plication...i am making it work for me..

if something happens, i will deal......worrying about what ifs does NOT

help......what if nothing goes wrong?? see what i am saying...

so i am getting healthier every day

exercising

eating GREAT food

and the more inches i lose, the more shoes i buy :)

checking in.......yesterday, did a lot of walking and it was fun...

whats fun is that i can (now).....walk.......when i couldnt not that long ago and now that i can, that to me is success..

ans yes with that (horrid) band i have been reading about....yikes...you would think us large people would support each other and not judge so harshly...boy is this ever proving to be wrong...and how sad.

anyhow.......that is not my business or concern...

cat/steph....uk will whip my butt and you dont need to show up as i give up now......dec line up for me is brutal....i barely got by friday......i cant wait to see how we play today at 4.....

last night we met up with some mc people and watched a band play and it was a good time

I got in a run this morning. 70+ degree weather in the middle of November. And storming some nearby now.

CG,your Tar Heels have a good chance of getting a couple players back within a month?

Keep up the good work friends and have a good Sunday.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
