Okay now that's out of my system...let me confess one more thing.

This blog is brought to by the letter, "A" as in Ambien. So I'm not quite sure what "Awake" Lydia will think of this blog but let's go for it anyways. I hope it's funny witty and not funny like WTF Lydia really?

Clarification: I take Ambien to help me mind doesn't shut goes and goes and goes. I have a lot going, so my mind doesn't shut off.

I'd like to announce that I have less than a month until Lydia 2.0 emerges from her cocoon of fat. To take of my world and kick ass and be bad ass. Turn myself into a runner, a marathoner, and good ole healthy. Whoop whoop!

I'm sure some of y'all are probably wondering if I'm scared. Honestly yeah the thought crossed mind from time to time and I just realize what I'm doing this for, I'm doing this for a healthy life for me and my family.

And really the only thing that as me kind of nervous about is the anesthesia. And I'm only worried about that because the nurse mentioned that you would become constipated. And I don't want that because I don't want my new guts to burst. The likelihood of that happening probably not likely. But we can think my over active imagination for that one! :D

I had 1 of my 2 nutrition classes and learned so much! Nina at MUSC is AWESOME!!! She broke it down to this is how the first month is going to go. You'll be eating pureed foods. I got a booklet and it gives 2 weeks of how your day should roughly go. I was like SWEET! Guidelines. I'm there!

Also she never mentioned food that I wouldn't be able to eat...except chicken skin, bacon, turkey bacon, hot dogs, vienna sausages, SPAM. So I was like the only thing I'm going to really miss is bacon and hot dogs. So I think I'll be alright. And who knows once I get to know my new stomach, we can try it later down the road.

The other thing she said was don't fry your foods, but that doesn't mean you can have them either. Once in awhile...and if you want maximum weight loss results don't eat.

I felt like I could have the healthier smarter choice and be so content and happy. She said no fried food and sugar foods/drinks. Because my body will make itself sick. Its called "dumping syndrome". I basically get really light headed, cold sweats, gas, and some people have thrown up and its gone the other way.

I say right now I kind of like the fact I'm going to have something in me that will be like "hey moron why did you eat THAT, I'm going to make you sick! BAAHAHAHA"

But long story short I'm super excited and stoked for 9-12-2012 to come! I'm ready for this challenge and ready to held it head on.


If there are grammatical boos, I'll fix them when I'm not on Ambien! :)
