I was just thinking about things I'm looking forward to in the near future....
Seeing my favorite band SHINY TOY GUNS twice in February...and the fact that the next time I have photos made with them, I will be quite a bit lighter than I was in November when I saw them. At the show on November 4, I had only lost about 30 pounds. My new pictures with the band should be off the charts compared to the last ones.
BUT....the other thing I am REALLY looking forward to.... is fitting into an airplane seat more comfortably. I love to travel, but the seats have just not been comfortable for me for a very long time. I can't remember the last time I flew without having to ask for a seatbelt extender.
In March, I will be taking a trip to London/Germany for a wedding. That is a LONG flight to be uncomfortable. Not to mention, the last time I saw my friend in Germany, I weighed 344 pounds. Yes, I just said it. That was my starting weight. I can't wait to see her face when she sees me! Although she has seen photos of me on facebook, it's never quite the same as seeing someone who has transformed their body in person.
Although I HATE powdered Whey protein, I am planning to pack some so that I will have meal options. I know that when I was in Germany 9 years ago, the meals were very carb heavy. I thought I'll also have my band tightened right before I go (saves money and keeps me on track haha). Anyone else have any post-lap band traveling advice?
