Getting ready for my big day on Friday...

Tuesday, April 06, 2010

I"m having my cosmetic surgery on Friday and I couldn't be more excited. At the suggestion of a friend who had the surgery recently, I went out and got a second hand recliner. Many people evidently have a easier time sleeping in the upright position, at least the first few nights.Right now it's on the patio, after being sprayed with lice/bed bug/flea/tick spray....I'm a bit paranoid, I know but this is my first experience with using furniture from a complete stranger! I will bring it in on Thursday and get it ready for my return from the surgi-center.

I am still following my food and exercise plan, but this month I am not going to focus on the scale since my weight will be up/down/all around because of the surgery. Anyway, I'm SO CLOSE to my goal and who knows...the surgery may just take care of the last few pounds for me!

Keep me in your P&PT this Friday. The good thing is: 9 is my lucky number and Friday is April 9th!

    I had my lapband surgery about a year ago. I have had 3 fills and think I am back on track after a sinful time with Girl Scout cookies. I am losing about 5 or 6 pounds every six weeks. I DO need encouragement with exercise. My osteoarthritis doesn't always mix well with exercise...any suggestions on how I can exercise with so much pain afterwards? emoticon

    Sending good vibes your way for a smooth surgery and easy recovery. The recliner will be wonderful, I slept in ours for a week after my gastric bypass.

    Good Luck on Friday. I'll be thinking of you and keep you in my prayers. Just a thought, perhaps put an old sheet or blanket on the recliner so the stuff you sprayed on doesn't have a chance to irritate you. Jean emoticon emoticon emoticon
