10.2 lbs!!

I am officially 10.2 lbs lighter! Not bad for a weeks worth of work.  Liver shrinking diet has been going well so far.  Met with the surgeon Friday and everything is set.  My lapband surgery is Monday.  I am moving Saturday, so wish me luck.  After I get settled in from the move, I will be starting to bake again! Can't wait hubby got me a Kitchenaid for Christmas!

2010 is behind us now.  Time to move on to a new year.  Hello 2011!!! I spent New Year's with my husband and had a nice time.  I hope you all had a good one! NEWS: I have my surgery date! I am scheduled to get my LAPBAND on January 17th! YAY! Yesterday, I decided to start the liver shrinking diet to see how I could handle it.  Well, first day didn't go soo great.  I got protein powder called "Nectar" the flavor was fuzzy navel.  I was able to stomach the first shake, but it was making my stomach hurt.  So, I decided to wait and try another shake.  Today, I tried "Atkins Rich Chocolate Royale" I was once again able to stomach the first shake.  But, when I tried it again for lunch I couldn't get through it.  So, I guess I am gonna have to keep switching flavors.  I am determined to do this and get this done.  I am ready for a happy new me!  I will update next week with how much weight I lose.  Thanks for reading!
