I'm sure that's what it's going to feel like after the band is placed- complete control system!! I honestly can't wait to see the weight start coming off and hitting the gym at the same time to tone the excess skin. I already feel much lighter with only 14 pounds lost. The ultimate goal is 99 so I have 85 pounds to go =)
I have a fun day planned out today....Knott's Berry Farm with my girls!! It'll be a lot of walking, talking, and laughing but I'm hoping I'll be just fine if I have my shakes and lots of water. I'll complain about aching feet tomorrow at work lol
Just thought I'd share that I'm a cash patient for my Lap-Band which means- I REALLY want this! Not to discredit those that have insurance and still really want it but if I'm coughing up a good $16K for this, I plan on succeeding with it. I'm usually very organized and a planner so I'm hoping these traits will work in my favor post surgery.
I said I would post BEFORE pictures in the next post so here they are. There's absolutely NO glamour in these shots. I asked my mom to snap these before going to bed. I weighed 230 here (a few days ago):
Have a wonderful weekend!!! I have 3 days till my life is forever changed and 10 days till I'm done with school FOREVER!!!
Cheers!!! (<--- raises protein shake in the air)
