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.

Thank goodness for fills!

Why did I wait so long to get a fill? That's what this whole band is about isn't it? To use as a tool to help us when we need it. I have to remember that and utilize what I have in front of me. I was already down a little more on the scale this morning which is quite motivating. I'm going to have to go on a shopping trip soon. I'm kind of afraid to go shopping though. Different stores things fit so differently and I don't want to get frustrated. Plus, my shape is weird. My top is one size, my waist is a different size and my hips are a whole other size (according to most stores sizing charts) so what in the heck am I supposed to do? All in all I guess its not that horrible of a problem. We are talking do I get a size 12 or a 14? Am I a L or an XL? It's not like any of those sizes are bad :)

Other than that, things are pretty quiet around my life at the moment. I'm planning on participating in my neighborhood garage sale the first Saturday in May. Get rid of some unwanted stuff. That will be nice. I'm hoping the weather gets warm soon so I can get in my pool too! That's all for now ... have a great day everyone!

  1. You are going to find some FABULOUS new clothes that look SPECTACULAR, you skinny little thing.

    I should have brought you all my leftover clothes for you garage sale. I think I'm going to go check out a new consignment store on Saturday. I will let you know if it is any good.
