MIA, But Not on Purpose...

Sorry I've been MIA lately. I've had some 'minor' health issues arise.

The first and most painful being gallstones. Boo to them! If anyone has ever had them, and I pray no one reading this has, I am SO sorry. They are horridly painful.

Well on December 19th Tony rushed me to the ER here in Topeka so I could get some help. I was having terrible stomach pains and long story short, my gallbladder was packed with gallstones. So, the ER doctor recommended I call my surgeon ASAP that following week to schedule surgery. So I did.

I had my gallbladder out on Tuesday, December 29th. And I've been at home the rest of this week recuperating. And while I'm sore, I already feel TONS better. Who knew an 'insignificant' organ could cause so much trouble?!?!

At any rate, that's why I've slacked on updates, and I promise once I'm fully recovered I'll get back to my weekly posting.

I hope EVERYONE out in cyber land is doing well, and I wish everyone a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Ciao!

Baby It's Cold Outside...

We have a Snow Day today! I am so glad it's been amazing. A little house cleaning, lunch with Tony and a nap. What more could I want?!?!

My weight has been at a stall, and I'm OK with that. I haven't worked out in a week due to a horrid sinus/ear infection and this weather. But I'm being careful (for the most part) about eating well. Although I have indulged in a few Christmas cookies...

I'm going to spend some time this afternoon browsing at Wedding dresses online. Woo hoo! I'm excited to start planning this February :)

I hope everyone in cyber land is doing well! Stay warm!!

Ciao!

Unlimited...

Unlimited...And I just had a vision almost like a prophecy... 2010 is going to be MY year!

Okay, so I'm still hooked on the 'Wicked' soundtrack. But I love, LOVE that musical!

Last week was Thanksgiving, and while I did indulge, I am happy to report that it wasn't ANYTHING like I had in my previous years. I did gain a pound, but I know that was due to the alcohol and cookies :) But I have lost it since getting back and getting back on track.

I don't have much else to report, except that my Doctor is SUPER proud of me! She said that most of her Lap-Band patients lose just 50 lbs in the first year, and I've already surpassed that in 10 months. Woot Woot! Go me :)

My goal is to lose another 15 to 20 lbs by my Surgiversary. I'll be down 80 to 85 lbs total by then. I know if I keep focused I can do it!

I hope everyone in Cyber Land is well.

Ciao!
