The Naming of the Band

I've decided that since the band is a friend and a tool which I will use in aiding my weight loss it needs a name. I went through a few with mum and dad. Dad suggested U2 and Mum suggested Beyonce. I don't know what it is with them thinking of famous people but I don't think so. After a few minutes tossing around some ideas I've decided on Barbie. Barbie clearly has silicone in her body and so will I. Mine will be a little different however.
So it's Barbie the Band.
Went to buy some books today that were recommended on the Yahoo Lap Band Health Forums. If you haven't been there and are getting the band done/thinking about getting the band/have the band check them out. They have been super helpful for me. They have everything you need to know, the pros and cons. Anyway, went to get the books and they weren't there. I should have called first because I got mum up and organised for nothing. Ordered them online but won't have them for Wednesday. I wanted to have them to read in hospital. But now I guess I'll stock up on magazines.
I am starting to get very anxious. I'm not doubting the band whatsoever. I am 100% ready for it. I'm just scared of the unknown. If only I could look into the future 6 months, 1 year from now and see what the outcome is. I was actually thinking of going to see a psychic. I have been a few times and they have always been spot on about something. I went to one last year on my 20th birthday. It was funny because she referenced something about having something in my stomach. I had no idea what it meant then, now of course I do. I wish I could get it done before the surgery but I have zilch money so unless I can get some off mum I don't think I'll be getting it done.
Well its 12.03 am. That means 2 days til surgery. Wow it has gone quick.
Thanks to mjwdec73 for another wonderful comment. I read your blog in one sitting tonight. I loved it. I think that blogs are getting my through the waiting. Being able to read about other peoples journeys, the ups and downs. Such a comfort.
As I end this blog I have butterflys....
Bring on this week!

It's OK to be scared of the future - one of the reasons I had my band was that I couldn't see a future. I can now - it makes such a difference.

Magazines are a good thing to take to hospital - I took books I'd meant to read - and didn't get far. After the surgery I had the attention span of a gnat.

Thanks for visiting - blogging really helps.
