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.

Two days later

So I am home recovering from my lapband surgery. Let me start by saying it was a long day in the hospital on Wednseday. I couldn't stay awake to talk or take any test. So I didn't leave the hospital till 9:30 at night. The first day home, I was in pain and I'm still walking slow. I have 5 incisions and now my stomach is bruised. I have been sleeping at a incline cause that works best for my stomach.
Today I am trying very hard to drink my protein shakes, I'm still tired and trying to get my stomach to adjust. So two days hasn't been that easy. I've been up and down with hungry pains. 
That's about all I can write today.

I finally had my lapband surgery yesterday!!!!!!! I'm ready for a new me. Everything went smooth through the surgery, just my recover time was a little longer than expected. I am in pain now, but that is normal. I have five small incenation in my stoomach and I am on my liquid diet now and it's not that bad. Your in pain not really thinking about food. So far so good! Will be posting more daily. Thanks for reading my blog.

Dinner for the Hubby

Last night I had a dinner for my husband of all of his favorite foods. Since he will be gone for such a long time I wanted all of our family to spend time with him. I gave a speech and there wasnt a dry eye in the building including me... I couldn't get it together just thinking how long we will be apart. So now I am counting down the days and don't know how I'm going to handle it when he gets on the plane.
