The Big Day is Almost Here!

July 17th 2012 is the BIG day! Lap band surgery day!  I am so freaking excited I can hardly contain it.  I've waited for this day for so long.  I am so thankful that I have insurance and can afford to have this surgery done.  I know losing weight is going to make me feel so much better and look better, too! 

Dr. Keilins Website - Lap Band - this is my doctors website

I start the liquid diet (Liver shrinking diet) on the 5th.  This diet helps to shrink the liver so that the doctor can get to the stomach easier.  It is mainly water, crystal light, jello, tea, chicken and/or beef broth and other sugar free carb free liquids.  It is a two week diet.  I will post before pictures that day.  I have heard that most people lose up to 15 pounds just by doing the liquid diet, so that is the day I will be starting my weight loss count down. 

I am not sure how often I should post photos. Every week? 

Check back often to be witness to my transformation!!

Movies * Tattoos * Lap Band * Fibromyalgia * Zombies Don't Cry

Fun day today! The kids and I went to the movies and saw Madagascar 3. CUTE!! We had a blast at the theater. Really laughed our asses off! Was better than the movie the night before (Prometheus) that I saw with my old and dear friend, James.  Neither one of us liked Prometheus. It just wasn't for us. He said I am to pick our next movie! 


Prometheus - You might like it, even if I didn't 

 Its a never ending project of mine designing my back piece (Tattoo, for those that are wondering).  I have an idea of what I want, I just cannot seem to put it all together as one big tattoo montage.  I know I want all black and grey with maybe hints of dusty purple or light pinks/blues.  A night fantasy theme with fairies and stars and swirls and flowers.  I am so excited over this tattoo!!  I found some pretty awesome ideas in a book I purchased from Books A Million called Flowers & Butterflies. Here is the website for the book:  Flowers & Butterflies Tattoo Book
I will have the tattoo done by an artist at Dermagraphic Studio

In 3 weeks I should be getting my Lap Band placed.  I cannot even express in words how excited I am.  First of all, I love surgery. Don't ask me why... I am really not sure why.  Maybe it is that feeling of being put under with anesthesia.  A lot of people don't recall that part. But, I do!  I would be a surgery junkie if I had the money to spend on plastic surgery all the time.  I am weird.    I know.  

I have fibromyalgia.  I also have low iron levels and a vitamin D deficiency which seem to go hand in hand with fibro.  Many doctors do not believe fibro is a real disease, but if you are one of the millions of people that suffer with it every day then you know it is very real and very debilitating if you don't have a caring and understanding doctor that knows what fibro is and knows how to treat it properly.  I finally found a doctor like that, and my whole life has turned around.  I feel so much better since being put on cymbalta and Vitamin D for my vitamin D deficiency and prenatal vitamins.  

I am currently reading Zombies Don't Cry by Rusty Fischer.  It is pretty good!  Check it out!

**Dirty Dancing**

Dirty Dancing is on VH1 tonight. Oh the memories!! 

I think I was 9 when this movie came out. My mother would not allow me to go see it.  I was so mad at her that I snuck out of the house (at 9!!) with some friends (they were 9, too!) and hitched a ride (at 9!!!) with a man in a truck (OH MY GOD, what the FUCK was I thinking??!!) all the way to the theater to watch it.  The man never came back to pick us up so I had to call my mother to come get us.  Needless to say, I am 35 yrs old and JUST NOW got ungrounded!! LOL 

I have never had regrets about that day, though.  Well...maybe the hitching a ride part was really stupid, but I survived!!  It has been my favorite movie ever since!  No movie will ever take its place. 

RIP Patrick (Johnny Castle), I will always remember when you said "Nobody puts Baby in a corner!" and then you and Baby danced the last dance of the season... 

Dirty Dancing Soundtrack - The best music!

Me and my MAN!

I recently went to Comic Con in Dallas, Texas. I took my kids, ages 17 and 8, with me. I am known for my phobia of Dallas traffic. I took along my Garmon GPS (thank goodness for THAT invention!) so I would not get lost.  I was terrified, but in the end, it was so worth it to get to stand next to Darth Vader and have this photo snaped!! He is my HERO!!
