1) Do you have any nicknames?

I get called Kimmy alot.  Since my brother was born, my mom, step-dad and brother all call me sis or sissy.  I don't really like it, but I roll with it.  My husband calls me baby or babydoll, rarely does he call me Kim or Kimberly. 

2) What was your "last straw"? The incident/situation that made you decide to get a lap band or commit to losing weight via any plan this time?

I knew that I wanted this surgery for a while, but I think it was when the doctor told me I could get pregnant, but it would not be an easy pregnancy for me or the baby.  I think she was just trying to be nice.  I personally don't think I could get pregnant with how much I weighed.  Also, I saw a picture of myself and was SHOCKED.  In my mind I was not nearly as big as I thought.  It was a huge wake up call for me.  After I saw that picture I cried and cried and then started the process to get this surgery.

3) What's your favorite joke or funny story?

My dad told me this joke on one of his weekends when I was a little girl.  When he told me this joke, I laughed and laughed.  Growing up only seeing my dad every other weekend he always tried to make me smile and happy because I hated leaving him at the end of the weekend.  Sorry to get all sappy on the BYOC, but this joke is kind of special to me for that reason.   And if this offends anyone, I am sorry.  It is not meant to offend anyone any way. 

Three workers, a German man, a French man and a Chinese man, were dropped off in a mine to start work.  The supervisor told the German guy he was in charge of picking the coal off the wall.   He then told the French guy he was in charge of sweeping up the coal that fell on the floor.  He told the Chinese guy he was in charge of supplies.  So all three men started working and 2 hours later the supervisor came back.  The German guy was picking away, the French guy was sweeping furiously but he could not find the Chinese man.  All of the sudden the Chinese man jumped up from behind a few boxes and yells....."SUPPLIES!!!"

Funny, huh?!!

Also, anytime I get together with my mom I laugh until my stomach hurts....literally.  I love you mama, but you do some crazy stuff sometimes!!!  We have so much fun together. We get each other's sense of humor so it makes it easy!!

4) If you could be a TV dinner - what flavor would you be?

I would be Boston Market's sweet potato casserole.  I love that stuff!!!

5) The question we do every week so everyone can be a little famous without having to do an official blog award...what blog or comment stuck with you or spoke to you the most this week and why?

Everyone's comments on my last post.  I am kind of down in the dumps and everyone was so encouraging!!  Draz - you and I talked off the blog and thank meant so much!
