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.

It's a good day :)

This is an odd feeling for me. I am actually looking forward to working out tonight. I'm not sure where it comes from, but I'll take it. I didn't get in a work out on Sunday or on Monday so I guess I'm craving it. Who would have ever thought. :)

I've done fairly well with my eating the past 2 days. I was below my calorie intake goal both days, but I did not meet my calories burned goal either day. Either way I had a deficit of approx 430ish each day which isn't bad. I am going on the assumption that today will be excellent!!

On a completely unrelated note, I finished the bag I was making! Here it is in all it's glory :)
