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.

This morning's weigh in ... drum roll .... 183!!!!

For those not good at math (like myself), that is 5 pounds in 2 weeks. AND this is the lowest weight I've been since surgery! Previous low was 184. These good numbers are giving me the motivation I need to keep going. I might just make the 170's by the end of the month!!

This weekend was fun. Saturday, James and I went to see Red Riding Hood at our local Movie Tavern. Movie was alright, not great but not terrible. I have a bit of a girl crush on Amanda Seyfried, so anything she is in I like to see. Plus Billy Burke is hilarious and Gary Oldman is amazing. Then on Sunday, I went with my BFF to the Funky Finds craft show. It was pretty fun and I got a couple of things that are pretty funky! I saw my fellow bandster, Pam, there so that was fun! Then I went home and James and I cleaned out the drawers and cabinets in the bathroom. I know that doesn't sound like fun, but we had a good time laughing and talking while we did it so that makes it all good.

Tonight is my monthly support group meeting and I'm super pumped to go and see my friends! And to share my wonderful news of now having lost 103 pounds total!!!

I sure am using a lot of exclamation points today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Make it a great day!
