I don't think any of this really kicked in until yesterday at work. The 1 co-worker that knows popped in to see how I was doing; I told her how much I had lost. She joined the mom bandwagon in that I can just continue what I'm doing and loose and not have surgery. [no, thanks] But it was in that moment that I realized how far I had come, how successful the last 9 days had been and how in a week, I will be banded. For the first time, I officially felt excitement. A different excitement from when I found out I was approved and even a different level from when I got my date. I was excited. I wanted to tell the world. I wanted to cry. I wanted to laugh. this is really happening!
Last night we had the 1st birthday of my best friend's little boy. Hot dogs, chili, chips, cake; note: not one thing entered my mouth - score! Today, my brother and his 5 kiddos are coming for the weekend. I'm excited. The cabinets are stocked with goodies, the rooms ready; The babies range in age from 2-12. They haven't been up in a while so Jay and I are anxious for them to get here.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
sweet Thomas's 1st Birthday
love him SO much!
Jay and I [I can tell we've lost in this picture!]
