right now I am cursing my band.

OK, I'm not really cursing my band, but right now I am really struggling.  If your easily offended then you better close this blog now 'cause I'm about to give TMI.  I need some guidance from some veteran bandsters.  How do you keep from getting constipated?  Good grief Charlie Brown!  I have never in my life had issues like this.  I have always been regular as a Timex but the past two weeks have been bowel hell.  You guys warned me about bandster hell but nothing about this.  I have been to the point of tears.  What do I do?  I have used a gentle woman's laxative and yes it does produce results in a little as 6 hours and that is fine and dandy.  The problem is, it works for that day but what about the next day or the next day?  I don't want to become dependent on laxatives to go poopie.  I am all ears for you suggestions.  Help me! Help my poor little hiney!  It can't handle this much longer!

Cross my Heart it's the truth!

Yep!  Crossed my legs today and I didn't lose circulation.  I call that a NSV my friends.  I can't even remember the last time I was able to cross my legs with any comfort.  Progress my friends I am finally making progress!  I am so happy! 
On the new home front, I made my offer and now I am just waiting to see if they will accept it or give me a counter offer.  Wish me luck!
Well, I hope that everyone has a fabo weekend.  I am working so think of me while you guys are out having fun remember me slaving away at my desk.
Hugs to all!

It's the big 4-0 for me!

You read it right baby!  40 pounds gone forever! Yahoo!  On another smiley face note, I am calling the realtor Thursday to make an offer.  I will keep you guys posted.  Wish me luck!  Here's some pics of the house.

The front.

The back.
The living room.
Master bedroom, don't you love the built-ins?
The dining room.
Those are some of the highlights.  I love that it has wood floors throughout.  I hate carpet, it is the enemy, especially with 2 dogs.  The house was built in 1946 and it oozes with character and charm. 
OK, I'll shut up about the house.  I LOST 40 POUNDS!!! They say turning 40 is hard, my b-day is in January and I will be 40.  I can't say that I agree.  39 has been AWESOME!  I am only looking for more good things to come!!! 
Sorry the pics the really huge and takeover the screen, I was having issues.
Anywho, have a great day!!

I am pre-approved! pre-qualified for my mortgage!  Yahoo for me!  Well, I am going to sleep on it and if things still look good then on Thursday I will call the realtor and make an offer.  AGGGHHH!!!! Me a home owner! Can you believe it?  I am thinking that if all goes well I may have a Christmas open house.  What do you guys think?  I am not really holly homemaker but I think being a home owner may inspire me.  We shall see.   Wish me luck!

38 Pounds!
Yep, 38 pounds gone forever!  I am kicking butt and taking names this week!  I got a fill last week and man has it made a difference!  I am down about 7 pounds in a week!  I know that this will not continue but boy does it come in handy for Team Lean this week!  I am almost to the 40# mark.  I need a 40# reward, I was thinking about at 50# getting an hour long massage for myself, but if things go according to plan...I might get a house for 50#!  Hmm...that really ups the bar for 75# and goal doesn't it? 
Well, on the housing front.  I called the mortgage lender at 8:30 this morning like we agreed on Sunday.  I got voicemail, blech.  I left my name, number and said remember me?  We met at church Sunday.  No response.  One hour passes, two hours pass, four hours pass.  I figure I'll call back to make sure she got the message.  I got voicemail again with a new message.  "Thanks for calling!  Today is Monday, October 11 and the office is closed for the holiday."  Closed for the holiday?  Are you serious?  This isn't a bank, this isn't the post office, heck she isn't even a government employee.  By the way, didn't we just discuss me calling you on Sunday?  Did you just discover that Monday was a federal holiday and decide to jump on the bandwagon?  Agghhh!!!!  Now I have to call again on Tuesday.  Wish me luck!
By the way, Happy Freaking Columbus Day.

Should I, could I?

Well folks, it seems 2010 has been a banner year for me!  I got my lap band, I got a promotion and if all goes well I may...get a house!  Can you believe it?  A home of my own?  I found the cutestest little house just down the block from my best friend!  Could it get any better?  I have been oogling over the house for a while and Friday I finally got the nerve to call the realtor and have a little look see for myself.  My BFF went with me and ya'll (I'm from Georgia so it is perfectly acceptable to say ya'll) it is too cute!  It has pine floors throughout, I hate carpet-I believe it is from Satan.  It was built in 1946 and has the original doors, cute little cubbie hole cabinets and is in really great shape.  The only thing is this...the previous owner died there...and wasn't found for 3 days.  It doesn't bother me but I wonder what the neighbors will think.  OMG!  I have become my mother.  Anywho, I am calling a mortgage lender on Monday and hopefully we can work something out.  The realtor said that she doesn't have any other offers on it and she is going to be out with her grandkids til Thursday.  Maybe time is on my side!  Well, it has been on the market since April.  Maybe the old man dying there has something to do with why it hasn't sold.  Some folks down here in the deep south are kinda superstitious.  Yay me!  I'm not!  Pray for wisdom and that if it's meant to be then everything will work out.  If it isn't meant for me to have this adorable little house then pray that I will accept it like a grown up.  Meaning I won't run out to Dairy Queen and order 1/2 the menu while crying over the house that wasn't meant to be.  Gosh I'm nervous.  Have a great Monday!  It's Columbus Day!  Crap!  The bank won't be open, my mortgage lender works at realtor's office...I hope she's in tomorrow.  Now, I just need to find the love of my life and I'll be all set!

You guys are the best!!! I have been without an internet connection for almost a week!  My router went out and then...anywho.  I just got all the encouraging words!  I feel so Loved and encouraged!  It worked!  I have since gotten control over the carbs.  I just had to, in the infamous words of Barney Fife, "nip it in the bud." Thanks again for your help!
