How did I let it happen? How did I wake up one day to find myself at 286 pounds and completely miserable in my own body? It happened, I can't blame anyone but me. And only I can fix it. So I am. On December 23, 2009 I had Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. John Marsden. I'm down 100 pounds so far with about 25 to go.

Morning Sunshine

How is everyone today? I am doing really good!!! Just happy and peaceful and smiling. The weekend is very soon, the scale is being kind, I am in control of my eating and things are just generally good.

I have added a couple of pages to my blog, you can see them over on the right. One has some before and after pictures of me and the other page is my weight chart. I never really did measure from the beginning, which sorta makes me sad - but oh well. It is what it is.

I just ran to the store during lunch and picked up a few things I needed. I got some lunch while I was out as well. It is the most cool little thing from Super Target. A pre-made lunch with grapes, carrots, wheat crackers and 1/2 cup of their chicken salad. I love it! It is just the right amount and very tasty :)

What was your lunch today?


  1. My lunch was soup...simply because I forgot my chicken salad at home! Love that you're having such a good day! I feel happy to!

  2. Ohhh...I love your new pages. You may have inspired me to work on mine tonight!!

    I had half a Pueblo Chicken potato from Baker Brothers. They actually serve the half potato portions now, so that is awesome! And it was less than 500 calories for the WHOLE thing. Love it!
