The folks have arrived

Well, the parents arrived today with my 10 year old cousin in tow.  My dogs were ecstactic to see grandma and grandpa!  Sassy actually ran to my dad.  The last time they were here Sassy was a bit timid of grandpa but warmed up to him as the visit progressed.  Maggie was so excited that she wet herself!  Can you tell that we don't get much company?  My cousin, Victoria,  loves animals and especially loves Sassy.  Sassy likes to be picked up and carried.  Maggie...not so much.  I am a wee bit discouraged right now.  I am so ready for my surgery that I can barely stand it!  I still have about 5 months left to go.  I am very greatful that my insurance covers the lapband at 90% but man I am so ready to get started.  I am going on a cruise in May and would love to have my surgery and be down some before my surgery but I doubt that will happen.  My goal is to have my surgery in June.  May would be fantastic but reality says June is more likely.  Oh well, we shall see.  I might just chunk this blog until closer time for my surgery.  Although I do enjoy reading the sucessess of everyone else.  Oh well it is time to get back to work.  Have a great Thanksgiving!

Not so good

Well I had my second visit to my PCP on Monday.  I wish it had gone better than it did but alas I was up 2lbs.  Luckily I have a doctor with some sensitivity.  We discussed the evils of white bread, flour, potatoes and sugar.  We also discussed exercise, I still think that it's a four letter word.  But maybe when I can get a few pounds off of me it will be easier and a bit more enjoyable.  I am so tired all the time and I have no energy whatsoever.  I work nights and sleep during the day but I have been doing that for over 4 years now so one would think that I am used to it.  I wish I didn't have to go through this 7 months of visiting my doctor.  I am ready to get going with this!  I guess I will just have to tie a knot and hang on to the end.  Thanksgiving is coming up and parents are coming for a visit.  We are going to a friends house which is good, no leftovers hanging around.  Well, I guess that's about it for now...yep that's it for now.

The journey continues

Tomorrow marks another step closer towards my goal.  I have my second of seven doctor visits with my PCP.  We will discuss weight and exercise and how I need to do more of both.  This is a conversation I can live without.  I know I need to lose weight and exercise more tell me something that I don't know.  I did find out from my parents last visit that I am getting a treadmill for my bday.  I am less than excited about this.  A treadmill to me is probably the most boring thing on the planet.  It will take a lot of work and mental focus for me to succeed on a treadmill.  It isn't the walking that is hard, it is the fact that I am walking but I'm not going anywhere.  Where is the joy in that I ask you?  At least when I'm walking down the street I can see what the neighbors are up to.  I feel the same way about walking in circles at a track.  All that work and you don't go anywhere.  I really need to get my mind wrapped around this treadmill thing and learn to embrace it.  I know I need it I just don't really want it.  I tried to tell my mom that it is difficult to walk when you weigh (slight mumble) pounds, heck it's hard to get out of bed!  Oh well, I know that this isn't forever and soon the thin person inside will be able to get out.  You know it's funny, I don't think of myself as obese.  Oh sure I know I'm overweight but I think I'm more chubby than flat out obese.  Lord help me through this journey!

Introducing Aunt Janet

Let me introduce myself.  My name isn't really important so I'm just going to go by one of my nick names, Aunt Janet.  In reality I have no brothers or sisters so therefore I have no true nephews or nieces.  I was married at one time and had two nieces by marriage but I am since divorced.  I think I miss the nieces most of all, no offense ex-hubby but there is a reason we aren't still married.  Anyway, a bit about myself but not too terribly much in case someone out there is a stalker or would seek to steal my identity (take my credit card bill please!)  I am less than or equal to 40 years of age and we shall leave it at that.  I am divorced as I mentioned earlier and have been for the past 5 years.  I live alone and I have to admit that I love it.  I grew up as an only child and I guess I have over the years learned to entertain myself and be content with my own company.  I like hanging out with my friends on occasion but I have a routine and I don't much like to stray from it.  Some people may call me boring but I like to call it stable and dependable.  Let's see what else?   Oh, I am adopted and have no idea who my biological parents are if I even want to know.  It really depends on my mood as to my answer.  Well...I guess that's a little bit about me.  I'll introduce my dogs next time.  Your gonna love them!
