Yes! New Weight &&& 2 Days To Go :)

It's 2 Days & Counting!!  :)

Hey Y'all,

I lost another .4 lbs!!  I know it isn't much, but I will take it.  This makes me at an even 18 lb loss so far.  :) 

Sorry I didn't post yesterday.  I meant to but just didn't quite get to it, although I did try to read some of the current posts & I managed to comment on a few of them. 

I was doing laundry allll Dayyy longgg!!  I still have to do a couple more loads of laundry :(.  But at least I have plenty of clean laundry to last a couple of weeks! :)  Today I have to do all of the preparation to go to Reno for my Surgery.  I have to go to Costco to purchase some goods, check the mail at our PO Box, go to the Bank, change the sheets on our bed (I like to come home to clean sheets after being gone, that way it feels like we are still on vaca so to speak since you get clean sheets every day while gone), shower & shave really well, pack & write a few e-mails to family & friends, etc, etc!!!

April (Band New), if you are reading this, I have been trying to leave comments on your blog, but it won't let me scroll down far enough to type in the special letters & to push the final send button.  I have been trying for a long time now.  Hope you get it fixed!!

As for my diet my amigos, or is it amigas (I think it is amigos)?  Anyway, the DIET really hasn't been bad at all!  Nothing like I had feared.  But then, it all depends on if you can get a Protein Drink that is at least palatable for you.  I was lucky to have found one that I actually like, so it has been no problem drinking them.  And as for hunger, I really haven't been hungry.  Head hunger at times, but actual hunger, very rare.  Of course, this might have been much worse had I had to go to an actual job.  I am retired (disability) so I only work at home.  My DH is self employed & I keep the books, etc.  So I sit at my desk most of the time.

I just finished reading an e-mail from my friend Nadene up in Truckee, letting me know that they are expecting a good snow storm tonight that is to last until morning.  She is telling me this because we have to drive up over the Sierra's & through Truckee on our way to Reno tomorrow morning.  So we will definitely have to deal with some snow!  Damn, I was hoping to not have to deal with it.  So I guess it is a good thing we are taking DH's 4x4 TRUCK! 

Although, I am taking a blanket to cover up with & extra pillows to lay on for the return trip, to try to cushion the bouncing since I will only be 2 days out of Surgery!  LOL  The people at the Hotel/Casino Valet will think it strange, this middle aged woman stepping up into this truck with a double step collapsible step, onto some positioned pillows!!  Oh well.  Maybe DH will take some pics to show how comical I looked.  Umm, maybe not, we'll see.

Well, I better go for now, got lots to do!!

Aloha My Friends  :)

I can't believe your date is almost here! Good luck getting everything ready and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the trip is not too bumpy!

Thanks Robyn! I might need all the good luck I can get as far as the ride home!! At least it will be easier than originally expected. My Sister-In-Law was going to go with us, meaning we would have been smashed into the truck with all our luggage, etc. But she decided not to go, so we can at least spread out a bit.

Far out that went fast - fairly zipped along. Good luck!!!!!!!! Oh and 18 pounds down on the liquid diet?? You fairly smashed that whole 10 thing. Go you.

Thanks Cara!! I am just hoping the Doctor's scale reads close to mine! If it is more than 2lbs off, I might cry!! LOL Sorry I didn't respond sooner, but you know how it is, last minute preparations. Making sure I have everything packed to go. :)
