I have never written a blog before so I don't know the first thing about it. It kind of feels like writing in a diary when I was a teenager. Well it is official I have one month before I have my surgery. I am excited along with being scared to death. I started out my day with a Walmart Generic Chocolate Slim Fast for breakfast and lunch and I had a salad and a 300 calorie dinner. I have been drinking so much water I feel I am going to float away. I bought a new scale since when I went to the doctor to get weighed my house scale was 8 pounds lighter than the Doctors scale. Kind of depressing that I had thought I was really 8 pounds lighter than I am... I am going to try to not go to the kitchen and get something to eat. Last night I got some of my husbands birthday cake at 1am. I was able to say no to it when everyone else was eating it. But there is just something in side of me that I can not control. I almost always have the best of intentions and then I can never follow through with the Diet or Exercise Plan. I wonder if I will still have all the same cravings after the lap band. I am going to try to go for a walk tomorrow. I also want to go to Yoga this week. I guess this is where I now have to hold my self accountible since I have written it down. I am going to try to go to sleep now or I will not be able to get Anna up in the morning to do her school work. Anna is my 11 year old homeschooling gymnast. I wish I had her energy and metabolism.
