The Bottom??

Tonight's the night. The night before I start again. God willing, the last free for all before the all too important "Monday" start of another try to lose weight. I don't know about you, but I always have to start on Monday.

We've had a great weekend. Lots of activity. Lots of fun. Lots of creakiness when I get up out of a chair. Lots of fatigue - sometimes before the day even started. And as always, lots of sweating.

As I was sitting on the couch this evening (eating my "last" oatmeal cookies), I thought. ... "is this the bottom? Is this as bad as I'm going to feel?". And for once, I'm pretty confident that yes, it is.

Tomorrow, I start a new chapter in this journey. I'm going to have good days and bad days. But, this is the last "Monday" because I'm confident that the band will be a tool that will allow me to make a positive change and stick with it. I'm starting m "pre" pre-op diet my surgeon only requires three days but I figure about two weeks can't hurt. And, it's just time.

Can't wait to write the post when I reach my goal "See you at the top!"


  1. Oh, I am so happy for you! I had my surgery a week ago Monday. So from now on....Mondays are good! Good luck to you!

  2. Have fun with the pre-op diet. I have lost 4lbs in one week on it. I have surgery on the 9th of June! This is your chance for a new start. Take it with all of your might!

  3. Woo Hoo! Way to go. We'll see each other at the top. The Pre-op will be the toughest part but we all got through it and so will you. One day at a time. The best part was that you will feel really good getting the sugar out of your system. Have fun drinking today!

  4. Very exciting. Just got my surgery date - July 9th. Seems far away, but I know be here before I know it. At least I hope so. Good luck to you.
