What is this blog about?

I know that this started out as a blog about weight loss, and my journey through those trying times, the ups and downs.... but i'm finding that I like it to be a blog.... that is more like a journal, that I can record my feelings in. Most of those feelings have a lot to do with weight loss. I feel as though those struggles I have in my life are connected to weight loss and love; what else is there? lol Anyway, I'm always struggling with "should I? shouldn't I" I wish the world was entirely more straightforward!
I'm going to continue to refer to "the guy" as "hot date" just to keep it interesting. :) Hey, what is life without a little mystery. Anyway, i've waited and waited for Hot Date to call, and he hasn't. I've seen him a couple of times, and we have talked about dinner and all that, but he just hasn't called... well not about that. I have talked to him about a few other things, but if I told you what then it would give him away (it is Vernal, and everyone knows everyone.) Anyway, I have consulted with the people I consult with (sister, SIL, and good friend R) and we have decided that I should ask him out again... here is where I lose my courage. He is TOO nice, if he was even semi-jerky I would feel more comfortable because I would know that he would tell me that he didn't want to. But I'm going to do it! It is Thursday, i'm going to call him on Sunday. There is a method to my madness! I'll write more in a bit... i need to go water the horses!

9 days post op!

I'm 9 days after surgery and feeling AWESOME! 3 days after surgery I went to Las Vegas, NV for a teaching conference! I felt really good just got tired really easily... ok, ok, it may have been a little much but I'll never admit it! The day after we got home I slept for 12 hours... maybe more. I'm doing well though, ready to get the rest of my Summer going!

2 days post-op

Well, the surgery officially went down on 6/1/11 @9:00 am. Everything went smoothly! The doctors and nurses were some of the nicest I have ever been around, they actually cared... kind of weird! :) Wednesday we (my sister and I) spent in the motel room. I was feeling pretty good! Nothing to really worry about... yesterday DIFFERENT story. Yesterday 6/2/11 (my birthday) we drove home from Denver 6 brutal hours in a truck! Not recommended but I am feeling much better today. Just sipping on apple juice and water....
Which reminds me Thursday morning I took to big of a drink and it was a really HORRIBLE sensation!
Then Thursday night I became very nauseated and my mouth was watering... I thought I was going to toss my cookies.. so I used one of the anti nausea pills the doctor gave me for under my tounge (yucky) but seemed to work.

I haven't been hungry... which is weird, but I'm almost afraid that when the time comes to eat that I won't dare...

My Lap-Band journey is coming along!
