Last Day home before returning to work after two weeks

Well, I will return to work tomorrow, last time I checked I was down 11 pounds. I haven't gotten on a scale since my first pre op appointment, last week. My daughter passed by yesterday and said, "mom let me take a look at you" so I stood up. She was like oh, no.. You're not getting skinner then me "lol" then she stared jogging in place lol we were both laughing so hard. I teased her and said. I will pass by your place next week to raid your closets. It felt good hearing that from my babycakes!! While I was sitting on the couch watching TV, My 18 years gave me his 5 pound weights and told me to start working on my arms while i'm sitting there. I looked at him and said ok. He said once i'm able to do sit ups he's going to help me get a four pack.. lol he has a six, I said bet let's do this. I will post pictures soon!
