The most wonderful time of the year....Autumn

I LOVE Fall!!!!  I could soooo see myself sitting by this tree with a good book.

It seems approriate, if you will, that I am being banded in the fall.  I love everything about this time of year.  The crisp air, the colors.  I am not a summer lover....never have been.  I feel alive this time of year.  One of my friends said (pardon me if I repeat myself from a previous post), that I will probably be banded right before Thanksgiving.  I said, well then, I will enjoy myself a steaming bowl of Turkey broth and a pumpkin spiced protein shake.  :)  That is me being positive.

I am using this time to reflect.  I have notice on lap band talk and other blogs that that is what most folks do during this waiting period.  One of the main things I have been reflecting on this week are the things I am looking forward to.  I have seen many folks list some of these, so here is a start on my list.

More energy (I am tired of having zero energy)
Get to the top of the stairs and not be doubled over.
Purchase AND wear pretty cloths.
To feel more comfortable.
To look comfortable (and not all squishy)
Get off blood pressure meds.
Delay the onset of other health issues.

This is just a start to the list.  I will add more as they come. :)


  1. Your list looks great ! I think of fall as a New Years, part 2 (a new beginning) :)

  2. let the fall colors reflex of the joy within. because they are so beautiful as you are . kid have a wonderful day love sis
