Made it! Everything is done and we made the trip to Greensboro from Richmond this morning. We are spending Christmas this year with my sister and parents. Another family dynamic - my sister is 6 years younger than I am and she had her first child this year --- and she's already back to a size 6 --- so not fair!!!
Nothing new to report in lap-band world, just waiting on my surgery date. One note - I truly enjoyed my mom's homemade lasagna tonight knowing that it will likely not be a meal I can indulge in this time next year.
Thanks so much to my new followers - all the comments and words of wisdom are great presents. Happy Holidays to everyone!
