1) You’re trapped on a desert island and you can bring only 3 of your favourite foods along. What do you bring?
Pizza, my Mom's Apple Cookies, and Diet Coke (used to be my fav)

2) If you could meet any 3 people, living or dead, who would they be and why?

My Great Grandfather - Marvin- because my entire family talks about how great of a man he was.
Steven Tyler - because I love Aerosmith and he rocks.
Dolly Pardon - because I have heard she is an awesome person and she is just interesting

3) What is your stripper name? (take the name of your first pet and the name of the street you grew up on)

Scuffy 100th - that doesn't work!  How about my current pet and street - Harley Santa Fe...that is a little better.

4)  What is your LEAST favourite part of your bod since losing weight? Your MOST favourite since losing weight?  

I hate my saggy apron just hangs there all flaccid and doughy.  I don't have a favorite part, but, I am liking how my face is thinning, my boobs are shrinking, and I actually have nice shoulders.

5) Do you believe in ghosts or evil spirits? Would you be willing to spend a night alone in a house that is supposedly haunted?

I choose not to believe in evil spirits - I do believe in good spirits.  I grew up on a five generation farm and I am positive that my grandparents, great grand parents, and great great grandparents watch over us there.  I am unwilling to spend the night alone in ANY strange house - it is the living I am more wary of!

6) What is your natural hair colour? If you dye it something completely different from what your momma gave ya, how come?

I haven't died my hair in over 10 years.  It is Dark Brown with some wonderful grays.  The wierd thing is, I was blonde for the first 13 yrs of my life and then my hair started turning dark.  My mom was the same way.

7) Boxers or briefs? Alternatively…bikinis or granny panties?

Gimme a man in some black boxer-briefs!  Alas, my hubby likes to wear his dingy tighty whities!  I wear granny panties but I am on my way to some bikinis!

8) If you could only watch one movie for the rest of your life, what would it be and why? (Trilogies do not count as one movie, cheaterpantses!)

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - it is hilarous, centered around my fav holiday, and just makes me feel good after I watch it.

9) What is your guilty pleasure (feel free to go straight to the gutter with this one if the spirit moves you!)

We will just say "alone time" and leave it at that!

10) How many pounds gone forever are you celebrating?? :)
48 lbs in less than two months!!!!!

I miss my old friend...

Before I was banded, I ate lots of sweets, smoked 1/2 a pack per day, and drank 4-5 Diet Cokes per day.  I 2 weeks before my surgery and I don't eat more that 30 carbs a day - I am doing fine with that.  My problem you ask?  I would do about anything...and yes, I mean anything!!!...for a Diet Coke.  I have tried Diet Snapple, Powerade Zero, G@, VitaminWater, Minute Maid Pomegranite Tea, Minute Maid Light Lemonade - nothing satisfies my thirst like a cold DC!  I WANT DIET COKE!!! I am begining to wonder if I really can live life without my Diet Coke.  I am foghting my cravings but it is so hard since my surgeon never even explained why I cannot have!

Begining to feel some FABulousness!

This past weekend was a whirlwind!  We moved all of our belongings into our new home (the hours I grew up in!) and unpacked in 48 hrs- that is amazing when you have a one year old and 7 years worth of crap!  I lost 3 lbs over the weekend, so, I am now down 41 lbs.  While unpacking my clothes, I found my I business suit that I used to LOVE wearing a few years ago - it used to fit me well and I got so many complements on the plum color,  I said to my husband that I can't wait to be able to wear it again.  He suggested I try it one...Voila!, no waiting!  It fits perfectly!  I am wore it today to an important finance meeting I had and the chair person stopped talk once to tell me (in front of everyone!) how beautiful my suit is!  I am feeling a little FABULOUS!!!! 

I may have to get this suit taken in as I lose more weight!

I'm Back!

So, I had surgery on 7/28/10. Everything went well and I have healed up! I recieved my first fill of 4cc on 9/7/10. I still feel hungry sometimes but it is a different hungry than before surgery. It is probably "normal hunger" now, ha ha! I have lost 38 lbs in 6 weeks and I am finally starting to have hope again.

My favorite thing so far has been pulling old clothes out that I haven't been able to wear in two years and the fit now!

I am promising myself that I will Blog often. I have been cyber stalking some of the other Bandster Blogs and I am jealous of the "community" y'all have. I would love to be a part of it!

Pre Op: Day 2

I am so HUNGRY!!!!!! I hate Jello already. To add to my misery, I have started my period and have horrible cramps.

I am worried that I will not be able to do this after all. I have to remind my self that I do have the self discipline. Heck, in the past 30 days I have quit smoking, quit drinking soda, and now I have quit eating! The hard stuff is almost done. To me, the band is a tool that will help me keep moving forward on my path to being healthy.

Oh, and by the way - my husband has lost 10 lbs for not drinking Coke...I hate men and thier damned metabolisms!

Pre Op: Day 1

I ate my "last meal" at Montana Mike's yesterday evening - it sucked! I wanted my favorite thing - chicke fried chicken and mashed potatoes. The waitress messed up and ordered me a chicken fried steak. First off, I am not a beef eater; second, husband is and he said it still was bad. The mashed potatoes were cold and the gravy had skin. By the time I was able to speak with the waitress, my husband and son were done eating. I said to hell with it. Honestly, I have ate whatever I wanted and when I wanted it for the past month. My food behavior since scheduling my surgery has defenitely made me realize how f'd up my relationship with food has been - I think I do need to keep seeing the head shrink!

Well, time to eat my wonderful pre-op lunch of sugarfree jello and water. Isn't is kind of sad when you are looking forward to suppertime so you can have chicken broth? HA!
