New Beginnings

After jumping through insurance company hoops for 13 months (7 months longer than I should have had to) I am finally approved for Lap Band surgery!

It's almost surreal that it will actually be happening. I haven't set a date yet because summer is full of scheduling conflicts for me. I want to get this done as soon as possible.

As a matter of fact, it's all I can think about. So much so that I am very distracted at work (*ahem* not that I am writing this while I am at work now or anything like that) and at home. I just want to get this DONE. I have waited so very long and I hate thinking about another day going by.

It's looking like mid-August will be when I have to schedule. Do you know how much weight I could lose during that time if I had the surgery?

I've been trolling other bander's blogs and day dreaming about being about to write about my accomplishments. Wondering if I'll want to try water skiing and roller coasters. Wondering if my arms and legs will look as good as some of the bloggers I have seen. Wondering what it will be like to have smaller clothes.

There are so many distractions that I am just OVERLOADED because it's "hurry up and wait".
