40 is fabulous....

Wow..... I feel so special! I have 40 followers - so cool!
My husband was shocked when he found out I was blogging --- well look at me know!!! I think I might be legit.
Did everyone you know want to take you out for a 'last meal'? My bff's are taking me out for steak tonight (so sweet), my parents are coming into town and taking us out tomorrow night and then I have a meeting at Bonefish for the cancer fundraising team I belong too.
Wow -- If I'm not careful I'll gain 5 pounds before I start my pre-op diet on Thursday!!!


  1. My parents moved up a birthday dinner so I could enjoy with them, but other than that I didn't tell many people about my surgery so I mostly avoided it! :)

  2. I just did one big pre-op meal because at the last minute (6 days from surgery) my surgery was moved up a week so I had to go on the protein shakes right away and never planned a big "last supper". I'm glad it worked out that way or I would have driven myself nuts. The night I found out, I met my best friend and her sister for Mexican food and had all the things I thought I wouldn't be able to have again - chips and guacamole, chimichanga, fried ice cream...but you know what's funny? I could eat all of that stuff now if I wanted to. I had Mexican for lunch today (burrito bowl - no tortilla just because I didn't want to spend the calories on the shell but I could have had it if I wanted it) and it was no problem. I enjoy food just as much, if not more, because I can eat like a normal person now and not feel STARVING all the time.

  3. You're almost there!! Wow - I am just so thrilled for YOU!

  4. I nominated you for the Stylish Blogger award!

  5. T-minus two days until you start the pre-op diet! How are you doing???

    I had pizza for my last meal. It was delicious!
