LilySlim Weight loss tickers

Countdown: 3 days!!!

It's Saturday morning and my mind is going a thousand beats per minute.  I've already lost 14 pounds....Yes, I now weigh 225.2.  The whole starving thing is not for me though...I need food!!!!!  I haven't had anything solid since last Sunday.  I've tried soups in the last two days but a couple of spoonfuls and I'm FULL. 

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)
