10 Things Thursday!.... Why not?

Here we go....

  1. Why is Green Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream better than White Mint Chocolate Chip? It's mintier... Also, Why am I eating Ice cream while on a Weight Loss Journey? Damn, you're noisy... Mind your beeswax! Before I eat that too...
  2. Why are we all so crazy about a man who spanks his wife to keep her in line? When for centuries we have been fighting to become more independent and be considered equal... Damn that Christian Grey!
  3. Why does Chick Fila's food have to be so delicious? Those Bible beaters are killing me with their dumbass hate, but their food is like crack! It seems Hate tastes Great, It is not Bitter... but bittersweet.... I will not go to Chick Fila, I will not go to Chick Fila, I will not go to Chick fila... I will still go to Chick Fila, It seems Food Addiction is stronger than Hate! But I will give them dirty looks and try to pass off Canadian coins there....
  4. I finished my insurance required weight management visits last Monday and even though I have some more testing to do, I should be scheduled for both surgeries next week, The lapband removal with be soon, and then 6 weeks of recovery before they do my gastric bypass. It's been frustrating, but I am getting there....
  5. I loved Dark Knight Rises, we saw the screening for it last night and it was Bad Ass... I think I am growing into a full fledged Geekette.... from a Geek by Marriage. I am loving the Super Heroes movies these days! 
  6. My Brother and his family are on vacation in Ocean City, Maryland and I am missing them like crazy... They should be home Saturday, and although I know they're enjoying themselves... I can't wait to give them hugs and kisses! 
  7. I wear my FitBit ultra every day and even though I am not at a fitness level to keep up with 10000 steps a day, I will get there.... as of now I get between 6000-8000 most days, and I went over 10000 on 4 days, one of which was 14200. So it is challenging me to walk more and climb more steps... which will keep me more active after my surgeries. I got told yesterday that I will be unable to swim after the surgeries for a while because I can't get chlorine near the incisions.  Since Water aerobics and other water based activities are my main workouts.... I have to figure out other ways to keep active for a while. 
  8. BTW, Since my unfill.... I have zero restriction, so It is preparing me for having no band... for the 6 weeks between surgeries. And 2 weeks of that should be my pre-op diet so... Only 4 weeks of crazy hunger and 1 of those weeks will be severe recovery from the lapband removal so I doubt I will be hungry. We'll see! 
  9. I am reading Fifty Shades Freed, which is the 3rd book of the Fifty Shades of Grey series, just in case you've been living under a rock... It is very good, like so good that I am rushing this blog post to get back to it. 
  10. I want to send all my good juju to all my blog followers and friends who are having issues with their bands... or whatever. It has been a tough year for bandsters.... Fingers crossed that by luck, hope, intervention, revision, mojo rising, or some magic beans that we will find our inner selves.... Eventually! Good Luck!


  1. Yay for finishing your supervised diet requirements! :)

  2. I love my fitbit---best invention!

  3. Wow, can't believe your revision is so soon! Where have I been? lol Good luck!

    Glad to hear that Dark Knight Rises was so good, my guy wants to take me to go see it tomorrow - and now I'm excited! :)

  4. I just started book 3 last night... I didn't want to start it though because it signified the beginning of the end... LOL!
