Well tomorrow is The Day! I get to take my first class towards getting a Lap Band. I'm extremely excited and hope to be able to sleep tonight. I can't wait to get it. Then I can lose the weight faster and easier than on my own. Then I know I will be able to take all of the weight off that I want to and keep it off!
At first I was totally freaked out and resistant to it. My Neurosurgeon just sprang it on me and didn't even prepare or suggest it slowly so I was even holding my breath. My service dog Milo started grring at me to get me to start breathing again and it stopped my Dr from talking about it. Instead he started talking about Milo and how much he liked him. That gave me a breather and allowed me to quickly realize that it was actually in alignment with my goals which was to lose all the excess weight and at least I would have help and support from my doctor. It also would help me with my portion sizes and just all around help me. So I agreed to it. I was still kinda freaked out but I realized I was just digging my heels in because it was sprung on me.
Now after a lot of research and education on my part I'm actually excited and can't wait to get it! Everyone always wants you to be losing weight before you have the surgery so your body is in that mode. So I am.
Well I better start trying to get to sleep so I can wake up on time. I have to be there at 8:00 am tomorrow.
