First off, I want to thank Lap Band Gal for recommending me on her blog. I know I need all the support I can get, and I absolutely love meeting new people. I need some Band Buddies, both new and old, who can share my experiences with me and give me some advice when I'm stuck. Welcome everyone! And I hope that I can provide at least some inspiration to the people who keep up with my shenanigans.
Well, today is my birthday! I'm 22, and feel old! Lol, not really. I hope by my 23rd birthday, I'll be fit. Right? ;)
So, today I went shopping. I bought two new pairs of jeans. Despite my 15lb drop in weight, I have not gone down any dress sizes. That's a bummer, but hey, what could I expect? I need to work a little harder before my pants get smaller. Hopefully I can just have these new pairs altered whenever I lose weight (is that possible?).
I also got a pedicure and my nails done for my trip to San Diego! I'm so excited. This is not only my first time on a plane, but my first time outside of Texas! The thing I'm most excited for is high temperatures in the 70s!! That does not exist here in Texas in the middle of July. In fact, it was raining today and the temps are already in the 90s. Yup.
So, remember how I said I wanted to start putting pictures up? Yeah, I found my camera, but no charger. Soooo....I need to stop by Target before I leave and get me a USB cable to charge my camera. If not, I'll have to suffice with taking pictures on my phone, or (god forbid) my iPad.
As for the Lap Band...well, as of right now, I feel like I don't have one. I can pretty much inhale anything in front of me (even though I try not to), and that is no bueno. I seriously cannot wait for my first fill.
So, what's on the menu tonight for birthday dinner? Steak! A nice, juicy steak that I am going to gnaw into submission. This might be one of the only times I can scarf some steak down before my fills, because I really don't know what to expect in food limitations once the Band is tightened. I know, I know...I have to skip on the mashed potatoes to meet my carb limit. :( Oh well!
I see a few people who have started to follow me live here in San Antonio. That's great! If anyone wants a workout partner or a Band Buddy, don't hesitate to shoot me an e-mail! I need all the support I can get, because I'm kinda working by myself here (boyfriend still eats everything in sight and doesn't work out). I really want to train for the Rock N Roll marathon in November, and I want to be in the Wogging (walking/jogging) category. If you're interested, let me know!
Well, I guess I'm done with my novel for today. The next time I post, I'll be in San Diego! Wheeeeee!
