Hey Ya'll,

Here's the answers to Drazil's weekly BYOC questions!

1. Do you have any nicknames?

•  Yes, my Dad always called me Lightning, and it wasn't for what the name implies!!!

2. What was your “last straw”? The incident/situation that made you decide to get a lap band or commit to losing weight via any plan this time?

•  I couldn't go anywhere where walking or standing was required without my walker or scooter without severe pain.  I could barely bend over to tie my own shoes, and forget about a self pedicure!  I had such severe Sleep Apnea that I even woke myself up (let alone poor Walt)!!  Anyway, I think that you get the picture, my total quality of life was so not there!  So I decided to take the next step and stop trying to "diet" and lose the weight for life!! 

3. What’s your favorite joke or funny story? (This is from Sandy – she needs some laughter to start the weekend and requested this one.)

* Probably one of my favorite "funny stories", took place when I was about 12 yrs old.  As I said above, my Dad's nickname for me has always been "Lightning".  When I was growing up, we lived in Southern California, and our family was going to go camping at the beach for the weekend.  The morning we were to leave, my Dad opened my bedroom door to wake me up (I usually didn't like to get up early for anything mind you).  But this one morning, I was so eager to get to the beach, that as soon as my Dad opened the door to wake me up, before he could even close the door, I had already thrown up the covers and was out of bed!!  My Dad's jaw dropped to the floor and talked about it for a long time after.

4. If you could be a TV dinner – what flavor would you be?

* I would be an Enchilada Pie like our family makes with a side of Refried Beans and Cheese. 

5. The question we do every week so everyone can be a little famous without having to do an official blog award….what blog or comment stuck with you or spoke to you the most this week and why?

* Well, this week I have been a bad girl and haven't had the time to really read up on everyone's blogs,  so I can't really answer this.  So I would like to say that everyone's blogs, every day, is an inspiration to me and always makes me think beyond my own problems.  

So there you have it!!  I gotta go for now, till next time....

Aloha My Friends  :)
