Ok so last night I was sitting in bed and wondering if I should do this or not. This lap band journey is a secretive one between my husband and sisters. No one else knows other than the surgeons, RN and maybe a girl from high school that I see at the surgical center. I know there is all this patient confidentiality stuff but what can I do...crossing my fingers and praying she never says anything and doesn't look at me any different! I keep asking myself why did I do this and then I remember that I could not do it on my own. Its a tool and so far a damn good one. I have tried every damn diet possible only to gain it back plus more. I am so on a mission. I have also started a 30 day challenge. 30 days of exercise for 30 minutes a day. I have also added no chocolate, cookies or cake! Majorly hard but I know this is what its gonna take to get to ONEDERLAND! Oh yeah its been a long time coming!
I had my surgery on Feb 24th and my pre-op diet started on Feb 10th! I have been faithfully reading everyone else's blogs and truly they have been so helpful in this journey! I was scared of the pre-op diet but I survived...then I was even more scared of what was I doing to myself...I survived! With minimal pain to the port and some stuck/sliming issues, all seems well!
What got me here? I love food, I love to eat and it makes me happy! Slight obsession with food. Yeah I know! My family is Italian and everything we do is focused around food! I have always wanted to be a skinny bitch! I have been a little obsessive on how they do it! I am on my way to being ONE!
I have two beautiful children and and an amazing husband that makes me laugh and scream! I have a great job that I love to come to and can't complain!
I have already started a blog on livestrong.com but as of today I will be a part of the blogger family!
