Monday, Monday!

I had a delightfully uneventful weekend. Rest was much needed after the shock of daylight savings time. Can't remember the last time I felt so depleted. I didn't even get out of my PJs on Sunday. I did do my food prep for all my lunches for the week, so that made me feel good. I am still working on getting my routines down in the new house.

Still waiting to hear anything from my health plan. The longer I wait the more I learn, so I suppose there are worst things in the world. I thought I was leaning towards the band but now I am really thinking its going to be the sleeve for me. I even watched the surgeries being performed on YouTube. If you don't have an aversion to blood/surgical stuff, you should check it out. Very interesting to see exactly what happens. Helped me to better understand some of the pain and discomfort that I hear post-op people talking about.

On the recommendation of Cheri, I read this book over the weekend. "Stranger here: How weight-loss surgery transformed my body and messed with my head" by Jen Laren. I got it on It was VERY fun to listen to. The lady who does the reading does a really good job of expressing the characters. I found the book to give a good "insider" version of WLS and the full scope of changes.. mind, body, relationships, careers, ALL of it. She doesn't hold anything back. The one thing about this book that had me raising an eyebrow is it doesn't seem like she worked out much to get such huge weight loss results. I am not sure if that's just something she doesn't talk about much in the book or what.  Good book, you should check it out if you haven't.  If you are like me and can't sit still long enough to read a real book, audible has it!

Hope everyone has a lovely Monday.
