And I'm Off.............

Leaving in 10 minutes with my mom to pick up my niece and head over to the hospital. Surgery at 12:30pm. I'm actually quite mellow right now.......not really scared.....which is scary!! LOL! I had a dream last night that surgery was over, I was in the hospital walking the halls and I remember looking in a mirror and seeing all those little incisions. Maybe that's why I'm feeling pretty confident this morning. My weight this morning on my scale was 303.2 lbs. Utterly sickening. I am retaining alot of water in my left ankle / foot, but still. Still sickening. 
I guess it can only get better from here! I've got lots of prayers and thoughts coming my way today, so I'm feeling great!
Thanks for all your well wishes and I will update you all asap. 


I will return with band!

  7. Hope all went well for you today! I keep having dreams that I'm cheating on my liquid diet. One dream was cotton candy. Last night the dream definitely involved some kind of chocolate/caramel deliciousness. Then I get paranoid when I wake up and I'm like, "Did I sleepwalk and eat something?" But, we don't have any cotton candy or chocolate, so I guess I'm safe. Anyway, wishing you a speedy recovery!
