12 Weeks Later

Three months ago, I embarked on a fitness program called the 12-Week Hyperspeed Weight Loss Program.  The goal was to lose 20 lbs in 12 weeks.  So, how did I do?  Well, I didn't quite make the 20 lbs, but I DID lose 15 lbs, 11" and a one full clothing size.  I also built a lot of muscle...something entirely new for me.  I'm feeling great...strong and capable. And, when I'm kicking and punching that bag during kickboxing class, I feel invincible.  So, for Allen Branch and his awesome staff of personal trainers at Fitness One in Kernersville, I have these words from Christina Aguilera...

'Cause it makes me that much stronger

Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Ok, I've done it! I attended the free seminar, visited my doctor & last Friday turned in my package of paperwork requesting the Lap-Band surgery! I hear it will take probably a couple of weeks to hear back from the doctors office for my first appointment. Even though my BMI is well over 40, I'm still nervous the insurance company (and I know mine covers it) will say..."no way jose!" I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. It took me a little while to get my husband on board. Your blog is one of the places he looked for actual comments from those who have had the surgery. So I wanted to say THANK YOU for all your blogs! Sharing your story has been a blessing to many!

Hello Tami with an i!
I have been checked from head to toe and back up again (found out i have sleep apnea), but I am now preparing for Lap Band surgery. I go Thursday (9/30) to get my 2wk pre op & 2wk post op diet. My surgery is scheduled for Oct 18th! The doctor will also be fixing my hiatal hernia. So I'm nervous and excited all at the same time.
This morning you mentioned the Keurig. I got mine last Christmas too and love love love it!
Have a blessed day!

I know what you mean about the nervous/excited feeling. Been there, done that! I will be praying for you!

My doc. fixed my hernia, too and it made such a difference! I didn't realize how bad my heartburn had gotten until I didn't have it anymore!

Well I must say I thought about you today. I remembered you speaking of going through the 2wk pre op diet and having food everywhere at work. Well, I didn't realize what you went through until today. It just so happens this is "appreciation" week and they will be feeding us pizza, wings, etc all week! And I started my 2wk pre op diet yesterday! I stayed strong today! I will make it with lots of help from God! He'll keep me strong when I can't be.
Have a blessed day!
