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.

Y'all are awesome!

Thank you so much for all the wonderful words of encouragement to my last crazy ass post. Today is much better. Tomorrow will be even more better. (nice English, huh?)

I am working on possibly joining the BOOBS in Chicago! Currently trying to figure out the rooming situation and get the husband used to the idea of me going off for a fun filled weekend without him. Hopefully all will go well on all fronts and I will be able to go and meet all my inspirers! (I don't think that is actually a real word, but it should be.)

I'm having dinner with a friend tonight. She and I met in middle school ... aaaaaaages ago :) She lives in Oklahoma but is here for a few days visiting friends and family and so we are going to get to catch up. I'm pretty excited about it!

I am feeling much better about my line of thinking about this not being a race. I am already so much better off now than I was 2 years ago. And 2 years from now it will be that much more. I am channeling my zen thoughts and taking it one day at a time.

Oooohhhhhhmmmm ...
