My journey to a better me.

I created this blog to share my journey of Lap Band Surgery and my weight progress. My Lap Band Surgery will take place on December 18, 2013 and I am counting down the days to start a new improved ME. Please ask any question as I will try to help in any way possible.

Had my gallbladder scan today and it took about 10 minutes.  The tech took about 10-15 pics that will looked over prior to the surgery.  Feels good to being one step closer.

Tomorrow is my gallbladder scan and I'm actual excited.... It's one step closer to my lap band surgery.  I'm ready for a new me.

With Thanksgiving being around the corner I am "THANKFUL"  for my health and my family! I love spending the holiday with my family and this year it is no different. But this year just wont be the same....My awesome wonderful hubby is leaving for deployment in just about a week and I'm not ready for him to leave and I never will be! :( My poor wonderful son is going to miss him dearly.
So take a moment and squeeze your love ones  a bit tighter this year!

I upload my first pic to the blog and named it "The Ugly Truth"!! The ugly truth is that I could never see how over weight I was until I saw this pic....My mouth dropped thinking how did I get to this point.
