It's Happening!!

Ok, so the time has's really happening. Thursday April 14th I will be having LapBand surgery! I am so excited! It's really like the first day of a new life. When I think of all the things I will be able to do after losing the weight...things that I've always wanted to do! Not to mention all the things that I won't have to do. Here's a small list...

Things I will be able to do:
run...yes, I can't remember the last time I ran and didn't have to worry about having a heart attack or my knees popping out of socket.

touch my judging here. I am very flexible for my size but I just can't lean over and touch my toes...there happens to be a big belly in my way!

shop in any store I want. I don't want to be skinny. My goal is a size 10...not fat but not skinny, a nice trim size. I want to go down to the plaza and not feel out of place while shopping.

feel full. I don't eat a whole huge ton anymore. But I never really feel satisfied either. If I ate as much as I really wanted to...let's just say I would give any grown man a run for his money!!!

Things I won't have to do:
Worry about fitting in a booth at a restaurant.

check out sizes of airplane seats.

shop strictly in "plus" stores.

constantly worry how I look sitting down. Trust me, if you wear a size 26 like I do, you constantly wonder how much like Jabba the Hut you look like.

I am a beautiful, independent, confident woman. I had amazing parents who raised me to know that I was beautiful. But now maybe people will focus a little less on the fat and a little more on my face ;)

I am so excited to start this journey. I know it won't all be great, I will have hard times ahead and alot of adjustment...but, THIS IS SO EXCITING!!!

More updates ahead!!!
