4 Months Post Surgery

Hey Ladies,

I know it's been a while since I have blogged. Gotta start making more time for this, but life happens. So I will just have to catch up a little bit. I will share some random things going on or that have happened...

Today is 4 months since I have been banded. Yesterday while I was working out with my trainer Deb, I had her weigh me and I am 62 pounds down. Never in a million years did I think I would be this far. It is so amazing. I had an appointment while my dr last week. He is very pleased with my progress. The support groups, my personal trainer, and the small group sessions I am involved in are going great. They are helping me so much with this journey. I just had my 4th fill last Friday and I think I am right where I need to be. It is pretty tight.

I am now two sizes down almost three. Started in 28 jeans now I am 24 almost 22. I can buy xxl shirts in old navy.. love that.

I have been working night shift for the past year. Our schedules are changing on Jan 2nd and I got day shift I am super excited about that.

For those of you who dont know. I am a huge Florida Gator fan and yes we did lose the SEC championship, but when or lose I am still a fan. I love going to the games and its just my team you know. Well one of my best friends Mackenzie and I are going to New Orleans for the Allstate Sugar Bowl game Fl vs. Cincinnati for New Years. I am super excited about that. We have spent new years eve out together for the last couple of years and now we are making it a trip. It is going to be awesome. I can not wait.

I go a lot. That is one thing I do. I like to travel, and I am blessed with a job that is shift work that allows me to do that very well. My friends and I pack up and go all the time. It is great, but in Jan I am going to Kansas City to visit my Aunt Nita and Uncle Terry. I am so excited about this trip. I am hoping for snow. Since I have never been in snow. I went snow skiing twice with the church it didn't snow either time. I went to New York in Jan and froze my butt off, but it snowed on the plane when we was leaving the airport. Just once I would love to be standing outside and the snow falling on me. Enough that I can play in to. I don't ever want to live in it, but would love to vaca in it. :) This trip is huge for me cause I am hoping to not have to ask the flight attendant for the seat belt extender. It is so embarrassing to have to do that, so I am hoping that I have made it past that. Keep your fingers crossed.

I went to my Dads work on Tuesday. He is the Chief of Investigations at the Sheriffs Dept. I used to work there as a 911 dispatcher. He has been there my whole life, so I know everyone there practically. My sister in law works there as well. I went around and visited with everyone. It was so awesome when they notice my progress. That is nothing but motivation for me.

Well I think I have rambled enough for today. I will post some pics soon. I broke my laptop charger. I ordered a new one just waiting for it to come in. All my pics are on there so just waiting on that. I hope everyone has a good day and an awesome weekend. I have to work all weekend. boo!!
