Last night my boyfriend and I went out to eat at the Olive Garden. It was awesome. While we were there I ran into my former best friend's mother. She gave me a huge hug and we chatted. She asked me if I had talked to her daughter lately, and when I said that I haven't talked to her in almost 2 years, she didn't know what to say. Apparently she had no idea that we don't talk.

Sadly, I am glad she is out of my life. She is fake, pushy and just plain mean... I don't need people like her in my life.

My surgeon appointment is on the 29th. I am so excited and nervous and a million other emotions... There is a lot going on in my head right now.

I think that is all

I rarely eat "breakfast" food, unless you count german style berries and yoghurt breakfasts.

    I know right!! I ate emoticon this morning for breakfast!! emoticon

I have an Asian co-worker, who eats things are typically for lunch or dinner at breakfast time. For she says it's normal b/c that's how she was brought up she eats chicken & rice for breakfast. She even eats salads for breakfast or stir-fried rice with pork. I mean she opened my eyes to be like I can also eat whatever I want b/c I am an ADULT...LOL.. So I can eat French Toast or Pancakes for dinner if I want..

Surgeon Appointment Made!

Thursday, February 09, 2012

I made my appointment to meet with the surgeon yesterday. I go on Feb. 29th at 12:15. I spoke with the lady yesterday and she REALLY set my mind at ease. I explained to her a lot of my fears about the insurance. Since she works with my insurance a lot, she really helped me ease those. She said that my insurance won't care if I didn't lose any weight, they just want to see that I am trying. She was very impressed by my record keeping and organization. It is at this appointment where they will submit it to the insurance for approval. I am excited and nervous...

I think that is all for now

Getting Nervous...

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

I talked in a previous entry about how February is my last doctors appointment on my insurance company required six month supervised diet and exercise program. I am getting nervous. Mostly, I am concerned about the insurance company. My biggest fear is that I will have went through all of this and they deny me. I am afraid because I can't lose the weight that they will think I didn't try, when in all reality, I have been trying very very hard.

My doctor seems to think that it will help me because I am trying everything and not being successful.

I am worried about a lot of other things too. I am worried that some how something will get messed up with the "codes" and I will have to start all over... I seem to think my insurance company doesn't really care about anything but "codes"

I have tried talking to a representative from the insurance company, but they just read me the same lame ass scripted answer.

I know I am rambling....

The office party went well. I actually ate less pizza than I thought. I had 2 cuts. They were about 3x3 square. They were yummy and I really enjoyed them. I brought a tossed salad with me to eat as well. I allowed myself a small cup of Diet Dr. Pepper, and a small slice of cake. I am still well within my calorie limits.

Ohhh, and I think I have my father convinced to buy me a shot gun. You know, for home defense and piece of mind....


I feel like a Hillbilly...

Saying... "I am going to get my tooth fixed"

Seriously, I do... I am not sure why?

Anyway I got my tooth fixed. They had to give me a triple shot of novicane to numb me up. It was torture. I don't want to be a sissy, but for some reason, over the last few years, going to the dentist has really bothered me. I never was afraid, but in recent years I have developed an irrational fear of the dentist. Lucky for me, the hygentist lady is super nice and she holds my hand while they shoot me up with that stuff.

THe good news is, my tooth is fixed at minimal cost and pain, so I am happy about that.

We are having an office birthday party for my co-worker tomorrow and I am super excited because I got the most awesome cake in the world for her. As many of you know, I work for a trucking company. I got one of our drivers on the cake. It is hard to explain, but I know she will really enjoy it. We are also getting pizza, but I have a plan in place. I have already packed myself a large tossed salad for tomorrow. That way I can enjoy a piece, not totally blow my calories and still be full AND still have an allowence for a small piece of cake :) I also intend on bringing some fruit with me too.

I am currently reading A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton. It is a pretty good book. I have been expanding my library to include something other than Harry Potter, Dragonlance, Twilight and smutty romance novels. I started reading Tess Gerritsen and loved her, so I moved on to a few James Patterson novels (which I loved) and now I am trying Sue Grafton. I remember that I read one of her books while I was in Japan, but I can't remember which one it was. I like the book. It isn't keeping me on the edge of my seat like some other books that I have read, but it is good. I think I will be reading more of her books in the future.

I think that is all for now

    I think that is a great idea to pack your own food knowing that you will be around pizza and cake. At least you are not depriving yourself, but put into plan how to have a little bit of both and stay in your calorie limit with out starving yourself. I need to do that at home too when I know we are going to have a birthday party here. Keep up the good work. You can do it!
