If ya'll haven't noticed I got a new blog layout!!! I love it! I think it is so cute!!! I am also changing the name of my blog!!!! It used to be called "Band Me....I'm Ready!" I love that name also because trust me, I AM READY TO BE BANDED!!!! But, after thinking about it, and realizing that this blog is about so much more than just my journey to be banded, I decided to come up with a more versatile name.....
"The Perfect Place"
I think that suits me perfectly!!!!! I am at the perfect place in my life right now! I am excited about this new journey I am about to embark on! I'm excited for the changes that are going to be made!
"The Perfect Place"
I want to thank each and everyone of you for commenting on my previous post about "What if's....."! I am in such a better place today than I was a week ago! I am still nervous but it is an excited nervous! A nervousness because I KNOW this is exactly the perfect place!!!
I went to my last 7 month appointment on Monday on my birthday!!!!! It feels surreal that THAT is over with! I had a long talk with my Doctor that I love so much! She has really been awesome this whole entire time! At the end of the appointment she hugged me!! :) Told me everything was going to be fine, and that THIS was the right thing to do! I just really love her.
I have a surprise for everyone!!!!!
Want to know what it is???
I have started my full liquid diet today!!!
Does anyone want to know why????
I talked to my weight loss surgeons office today, and Mary's procedure is getting very close!
So close that they told me to go on my liquid diet asap, like right now!!
Want to know another secret????
I didn't find this out till like 10 am......
Guess what I ate for breakfast????
King size Twix bar, a large pack of Lance Gold N Cheese bits, and a 12oz Dr. Pepper.
Let's just say that was a little embarrassing when I had to tell the nutritionist what I ate for breakfast this morning!!! She is a sweetheart and said it was fine, but to start my full liquid diet right then.
And THAT I did!
I went home and made me a strawberry protein shake for lunch. It isn't the GREATEST thing in the world, but I AM drinking it ;) I think I need to work on my shake making skills!!!!!
This is what I am allowed to have:
decaf, unsweetened tea or coffee
sugar free jello
sugar free popsicles
low fat cream soups
sugar free pudding
tomato soup low fat yogurt
fat free milk
carnation instant breakfast
protein supplements - 2 or 3 a day
at least 64 oz of non carbonated beverages a day / limit caffeine
So what do ya'll think????
I am excited. Much more excited than I thought I would be! I have put THIS all in God's hands and I know HE knows what HE is doing!!!!
