Oh My God It's Going To Happen!!!



Recommended Posts

I am shocked. Totally shocked. I am finally going to have my surgery! I had an appointment with my surgeon today and I have finally lost enough weight that we are going to proceed. So next Monday morning, bright and early, I'm hauling my tushie down to the hospital and banding up!!!

I was so nervous about the appointment I didn't let myself think about the reality of the surgery! So now it's hitting me all at once. But I am super duper pooper scooper excited. I'm going to spend the weekend stocking up on liquids and trying to get mentally prepared. Does anyone have any good advice for the last 4 days before I take the plunge?

I am so stinkin excited. Can I say that one more time? I know reality will set in soon and it won't be all fun and games, but DANG I'm enjoying feeling good about it right now.

Ok, so two random thoughts...

Random #1 - I read the best quote the other day on Puddin Pie's blog. It said "Where am I going and why am I in this handbasket?" Is that not HYSTERICAL?! That is such an apt description of my life sometimes..

Random #2 - I read something earlier DeLarla posted about marshmallows and Ritz crackers and I had to laugh because I grew up eating something similar. My mom would take a saltine, put a slice of cheddar cheese on it and a marshmallow on top and put it in the microwave for a few seconds to let everything melt together. She calls them "Poor Boy Cookies" Her mom made them for her when she was growing up. Sounds weird, I know! But it is the best combination of salty/sweet, chewy/crunchy, savory all at the same time. IT WORKS TOGETHER!

Ok, I will stop my ramblin now. Just had to share the good news. Yay for me! :clap2:

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
