Thanks Illinois Family! And thank you EVERYONE -
Oct 05, 2010
Getting emails and messages on my FaceBook page, etc. from family and friends MEANS THE WORLD TO ME.
I'm not nervous (yet?), just very excited.
Excited that my mom is coming down to spend a little time with me, excited that I get 2 weeks off work, and excited that I am finally ready for this step to Slenderdom!
Thank you to my new friends here on OH who have been so informative and supportive, as well. What a true blessing!
I'm over the fact that I need help to accomplish this goal and now I'm just focusing all of my engergy on attaining it. That would be much more difficult without the love and encouragement of you all reading this right now. I love you!
Monday, 10/4/2010: NOT GOOD...
Oct 04, 2010
Well, I wanted to spend this weekend getting ready for my mom's visit, as she is coming down on Wednesday to be with me for my surgery.
INSTEAD, I stayed in bed drinking hot liquids and feeling very poopy.
Feels like allergies to the 10th degree.
If my fever goes and stays down, I'll still be able to get my surgery.
But, right now, I can hardly keep my eyes open.
I haven't lost anymore weight on this high protein/low carb diet (odd), but I'm keeping it up nonetheless.
Dang, it was too gorgeous of a weekend to be couped up in the house!
Another gorgeous week ahead, though =)
WoW! I've lost 5 lbs this past WEEK!

This shocks me because I went to a party in Houston this past Saturday
where I had Mexican food and drank beer or 3.
But, the rest of the days since, I've been a good girl.
I'm having protein drinks for breakfast & lunch, keeping carbs as low as possible, and having a "sensible" dinner.
SO, why don't I just keep this up and NOT do something as drastic as surgery?
Because I CAN'T keep this up...That's the point, y'all.
Having a little bitty stomach will give me the help I need, though.
Guys, I'm so thrilled to be losing weight before my surgery!
My surgeon will be very happy as well; makes his job easier if my liver shrinks enough.
I've hardly tried to lose weight before the surgery because my insurance didn't require it.
But, I've always been a procrastinator, getting things done at the last minute possible.
I'm best under pressure. Always been that-a-way, unfortunately.
I'm going to try to change several more things about myself while on this weight loss journey.
Some things have already been changed BECAUSE of this journey...This IS a very good thing =)
We Need a Logo! Any Creative Folks in Our Bunch?
Oct 01, 2010
Calling all creative folks...We need a logo!
This can also be something you design OFF the computer.
So, if you see something or draw something (etc.), you can take a good photograph of it to submit via email.
I'm not really savvy enough to create something on the computer, so I'm going to see what else I can come up with while recovering after my surgery on the 7th.
Anyone who wants a go at it should give it a try, too!
Then, we can vote on our official logo maybe by the end of the month, when we are all almost back to normal ;-)
