7 More Days & "The Last Supper"

Hey all!! Got some great news to share as well as some crazy thoughts running through my head.

First off, my surgery date has changed. I was to be banded on the 21st of Sept. and that date didn't work as I am going to school for my Master's degree and I just cannot miss a night. So...I was able to get it changed to a SOONER date...woohoo! So now, I am going to be banded ONE WEEK FROM TOMORROW!!! I cannot believe it is now only a week away. This is going to be a looooong 7 days! Which leads me to my next issue..."The Last Supper".

So as the date draws nearer I can't help but think..."What will my "last" meal consist of?" As if I am never going have another "normal" meal again!? I find myself thinking of certain foods that I may never be able to have, tolerate, or enjoy again. Foods such as breads, rice, or...oh my gosh....Coca-Cola!!! Now the realistic me realizes these are all culprits that got me to where I am at today...but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy devouring them!! My wife Jaimie asked me tonight what I wanted before I got banded next week and while my answer should have been, "I wanna drop another 5 lbs. before next week." my answer was...

"For my last meal I want the following..."

Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich on fresh White Bread...Skippy Peanut Butter of course.
Glass of COLD 2% Milk

Main Course
1 Chipotle Barbacoa Burrito w/ side of chips & salsa
2 Slices of Pizza Hut Pepperoni Stuffed Crust Pizza
1 Mexican Roll Sushi
Double Quarter Pounder w/ Cheese
McDonalds...must be McDonalds...Coca-Cola...a big one!

3 Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Easter Eggs
Chocolate Cake w/ Chocolate Frosting
3 Freshly Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies

So as you can see, I haven't given this much thought...ha! While I know I have eaten my last of many of these things I do think I will enjoy one more Coca-Cola during my last week. You know...just to bid it a proper farewell.
