Wow --- I'm a bad blogger! I have not been on in a week and I feel so bad. I was nominated for great awards and I haven't even been able to accept them yet. I have been busy, busy, busy!!
Things are going well in lap-band land:
Pre-op Labs - Check
Pre-op RN Appt - Check
4 hour Lap-band Class - Check
2 Cases of Light Muslce Milk - Check
Magic Bullet - Check
Started Pre-op Diet Started 1/27 - Check
I have been doing okay on the pre-op diet - some days the hunger pains do better than others. I've been on it for 4 days now and I'm down 6 pounds - which is definitely motivating me to stick to it.
To Do:
Flinestone's Chewables
Find a Calcium Citrate --- Any suggestions?
Get my Presciption for Surgery Day Nausea
Stick to Pre-Op Diet
Does everyone go through this feeling like everything has to be done before surgery day? I feel like I'm stressing about getting the house scrubbed, all the financial papers in order and file my taxes, etc. etc. I don't know if I'm subconsciously worried that something will happen or if it's like some weird nesting syndrome. I just feel like my to-do list is growing everyday. I guess being busy is helping me get through the pre-op diet hunger - so I guess it's not so bad.
Personally - I completed the 1099's for Little League, filed the LL tax return, dealing with registration payments daily, working on thank you letters for our Rockin' for a Cure Benefit and I decided to volunteer to do the accounting for our local Relay for Life event in May. Oh and I've still managed to get my day job in too!!
One our Rockin' team member's husband was just diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer that has spread to his liver - and he's only 32. We are all staying positive and sending him our love and prayers. Please keep my friend Chris in your thoughts!
So all of this sums up where I've been and I hope I don't have to stay away this long ever again!!


  1. Keep it up! Sounds like you are doing great. I take the GNC calcium chews and really like them. Don't forget to stock up on sugar free ice pops, jello and chocolate pudding.

  2. You're on plan now and that is a good thing!

    Chris will surely be in my prayers...

  3. I think that I had that feeling before surgery too. Like my to do list kept growing and growing! You will get everything done, no worries!

  4. I went through the same thing, stressing over whether or not I'd gotten all my crap done. But you'll be fine! :)

    Praying for your friend, as well.

  5. Hi! I just found your blog. I think we're getting banded around the same time. I started the liquid diet last Friday and Feb 9th can't come soon enough. I look forward to seeing your progress!
