Today I had my first follow up appointment at the surgeon's office. I didn't actually get to see my surgeon. In fact, I have no idea who the woman was who did my appointment, but she seemed to be happy with my progress thus far. I asked her if I could start taking Benefiber (because the scale is up to 248!) and she said yes, so hopefully that'll get things moving with the weight loss. Thanks everyone who commented on that last post. So, I go for my first fill on September 16th, which I'm kind of excited about, but kind of nervous about as well. I'm not sure why I'm nervous. I think maybe because my band is completely empty right now (oh, and I found out I have an 11 cc band, btw) so I don't know what the restriction will feel like. I don't really know  how it's supposed to feel or what to expect. But, I guess that's what this whole journey is all about, right? Getting outside of my comfort zone. Anyway, not much else going on, so I'm going to go ahead and do my first BYOC!

It’s Friday so that means here in Draz Land it’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy!

We answer just a few questions to get to know each other better and to give our blog brains a break!

Copy to your own blog if you wish and ENJOY!

1. How much makeup do you wear daily, how long does it take you and are you loyal to certain brands?
Daily, I don't usually wear makeup. If I'm going out, I'll put on eye shadow (usually this pink sparkly stuff from Rimmel that my friend gave me), eye liner (whatever's cheap), mascara (also Rimmel, and given to me by another friend, but it's the BEST mascara ever), and lip gloss. So, I guess I subconsciously favor Rimmel products.

2. Repeat question: I’m going to pick a person not knowing your relationship with them (or even if there is one) and you try to describe this person in 5 words/short sentences.

Your oldest paternal aunt

Pittsburgher turned Southern belle
Steelers Fan

3. Tell me about your first real kiss and how old you were.

I was 12 and stupid. It was in a hallway after Sunday School (sorry, God!). The guy was a pretty big jerk, actually.

4. If I gave you $1000.00 and told you that you had to give it to a charity – which charity would you choose and why?
I have to agree with Ronnie on this one and say that I'd give to a charity to help fight hunger in the United States. I'm not going to get into politics or anything, because that's not what I'm here for, but I find it really sad how much our government seems to care about getting help to people in other countries, but not so much about the people in their own country.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.

I pretty much stayed out of blog land this week. I did some reading, but my mom was here all week, so I spent a lot of time with her.
Real life, Mom and I ran a lot of errands, I started getting ready for school to start, and took some time to relax before going back to school and work.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I looove Rimmel. Maybe I secretly favor them, too. :)

Sounds like a good appointment and I'm glad you can start using Benefiber. What I had done ... in that situation ... is eat a few almonds - chewchewchew them until they disolved ... helped me ... good luck !

I was totally nervous for my first fill too! and my second (and that's where I'm at now). I think it's natural. I mean it IS different from normal. :)

I have my first fill on 9/9, and believe me I am nervous too!! Hey, if we got through surgery, a fill is NOTHING right?!?

I am super excited for the first fill - so much that any nerves are hidden. Mine is on August 30th - one week to go!!
