Day 32

I'm home from Houston where I met with the surgeon and a slew of other people. Turns out, I am down now to 46 full pounds off of me, and I can hardly believe it. I mean, that's like four measly pounds away from the big 5-0!

Whoa. The puzzling thing is that, although I look a LITTLE trimmer, a LITTLE less full in the face, a LITTLE flatter in the gut, I'm still as big as a house. I guess I just thought fifty pounds would look more drastic than it does. Merely proves that I've got a long way to go.

Everyone I talked with today was very pleased with my progress, and very complimentary. They all looked delicious.

One week from tonight I will be back in Houston, holing up in a Hawthorn Suite with a buddy, preparing for the procedure the next morning. I wonder if I'll be able to sleep the night before?

When you hit 50 pounds I'm going to tell you the world's funniest soccer mom story.

Swear to all that is holy, it'll make you cry laughing.

Good to hear that the checkout went well. Wow, 46 pounds! That's quite a lot. It is normal to be nervous but I believe that you will be fine and come out as a "slim Jim"!

Sue: Hopefully that'll be next Tuesday, if you insist on holding out on us.

Ice John: ....Slim Jims.....mmmmm!
Beefy!

Keep on truckin' !

I'm also guessing that since you see yourself every day the changes may not be so dramatic to you.

I'd say good luck, but I'm still upset about that "dork" comment.
