The Journey Continues...

I've started my next step in my Lap Band journey! Needless to say, this step isn't so exciting or fun. On Wednesday October 21st, I started my two weeks of an all Liquid diet!

Sounds fun doesn't? Not really, but I've had/have a GREAT support system and when I feel weak and want to dive into a bag of chips they are right there for me. Reminding me of my goal and keeping me on the right path.

November 4th @ 10:30 a.m. is surgery, right around the corner. I have mixed feelings right now, feelings of excitement, nervousness, and a little scared.
Why scared? Because this will be a big change of life, one that I'm very ready for but it's still a little scary. I think change in general tends to be scary, it's the element of not knowing for sure what to really expect.

I'm very prepared and educated on the Lap-Band, but till you're there, your never really 100% ready!
So the Friday before I started my all liquid diet, I had a Last Supper with some of my girlfriends from church! Those girls are just great, I'm so blessed to have them in my life!
Everyone brought there favorite dish to share, we had chips and salsa/queso from Chili's, oh so yummy! We had the best cheese ball I've ever had with crackers! We also had crab dip, I didn't get any of it since I'm allergic to sea-food but it looked so very very yummy!
Last but not least, Sara made one of her famous cakes, but put a twist on it, I found it very clever and it made me laugh!
She made me a "Stomach" cake, top with a lap-band on it. That cake sure did taste yummy!
We hung out, ate, talked, and played games till Midnight! Thanks girls for such a great time and a wonderful last supper!!!

Stopping by from Secret Santa Soiree and just had to say something. I've been thinking about having the lap band procedure done. I'm still not certain if I want to do it or not so I'll be stopping by frequently to see how you're doing.

Good luck!
