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.

Happy Monday!

There it is folks. Down 1.6 pounds for the week! You can also see my awesome new pedicure. I don't remember the name of the color, but it is a turquoisey blueish color. I love it!

Harry Potter was incredible. And I did REALLY good at the theatre! I had the fruit and cheese plate to eat. Pineapple, grapes, strawberries, some whole grain crackers and some kind of soft cheese with garlic in it. It was delicious and very low calorie, woo hoo!

I did not work out yesterday, which I'm kind of bummed about, but it will be alright. Except that I don't think I can do a full workout today either. And tomorrow I have plans after work, eek! I will do some Just Dance after I get home tonight and then Wed-Fri I will work out each evening after work.

Here is what I was doing after seeing Harry Potter yesterday. It's not quite finished yet, have to make the inside lining which will be the striped fabric. I should get it finished this evening over at BFF's house, she is helping me decipher the pattern but I am doing all the cutting and sewing.

I hope you all have a fantastic day :)

p.s. Only 10.5 weeks til BOOBS in Chicago!


  1. How cute!!! Love it!

    I liked HP too!! Saw it at the drive in. I was not nearly as good as you in my snack choices!

  2. Super cute purse!! I love the blue toes. I get that color a lot. I need to get a new pedi too. I have no idea when that is going to happen...
