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.

My very first BYOC!

Every week Drazil does a 5 question BYOC (Bring Your Own Crazy) and I've decided to join in this week! Here goes nothin ...

1. Are you superstitious?
  • Not in a crazy way, but generally I would say yes. I absolutely know that I have a voice that tells me things and I listen to it without fail. Past experience has shown me that if I don't, bad things happen.
2. You wouldn’t be caught dead where – wearing what?
  • Wow. I am a pretty modest dresser, so there are way too many answers to that question. I'd pretty much not be caught dead anywhere wearing anything too crazy!
3. What brand of perfume to you wear?
  • Chanel No. 5
4. Name five non-human things that you love and why.
  • Crafting (Knitting, Crochet, Sewing, Beading) - It's relaxing and fun and makes me feel like I've accomplished something.
  • TV, Movies, Music & Books - Awesome escape from reality!
  • My Pool - I love floating in the pool, listening to the water fall over the hot tub. It's my zen retreat.
  • My VW Beetle - I've always wanted one and finally got one almost 6 years ago. It is paid off and my favorite car ever! His name is Gus.
  • My Cats - They always make me feel so loved, no matter what else is going on in the outside world.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blogland and in real life.
  • Blog Land - I've actually not blogged very much this week :( Sometimes I can't think of what to say! I want to work on posting more often, I need to not over think what I am typing.
  • Real Life - Back to work after a week of vacation is not fun in any way shape or form. My oldest nephew turned 16 on Wednesday! My Daddy sent me beautiful flowers yesterday to work, so that was super awesome. And I'm soooo glad it is Friday!
OK, now I'm off for some ping pong in our company break room! 


  1. Yay, congrats on the first BYOC. :)

    I always wanted a Beetle, too! Maybe when my kids grow up. lol

  2. I hope I can make it into your pool this summer!! :) I never seemed to get there last year.
