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.

A Night of Rest

Normally I don't have a bunch of stuff planned to do after work. Maybe 1 thing a week or so. This week it has been crazy! Crazy and fun :)

Monday - Lap Band Support Group
Tuesday - Quilting Guild
Wednesday - Tommy Tune with Beth
Friday - Duran Duran w/ my BFF!!!!!

Normally, Thursday nights is when I go knit with my group of friends, but I needed a night off to rest! I am taking vacation all next week in celebration of my birthday on Wednesday the 23rd. I am sooo ready for a vacation from work for a few days.

Yesterday my BodyBugg numbers were really good!

Calories Burned: 2408
Calories Consumed: 1245
Deficit: 1163

I am thrilled with those numbers and hope I can do that good every day! I am planning on doing a little housework when I get home tonight so that should bump up my calories burned for the day.

Oh! Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! I can't believe I almost forgot to say that! I am wearing a green shirt, so I should be safe from the pinchers of the world. I won't have any green beer though ... 1st off, too many calories. And 2nd off, I really don't like the taste of beer in the first place, ha!

I hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the day ... til next time!
