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.

I got up before 7am this morning. It was not on purpose. My cats woke me up. Need I say more? Oh well ...

I fed them and cleaned their box then hung out and played on the computer for a while. A little after 9am I left to head to my hair appointment. It wasn't until 10:15, but I wanted to stop and get a smoothie first. I did just that and it was delicious! I got my hair all fixed up (will try to get some pictures tomorrow to post) and chatted w/ my hairdresser about my upcoming yoga class. She said that she understands my fear, that everyone feels that way the first time. She said not to worry and that everyone there is super nice and they love newbies so that made me feel better.

Then I went to Target to pick up a few new pieces of workout clothing. I grabbed some things and then headed to my office to hit the fitness center. I had it all to myself again, I love that! I got up on my friend the elliptical and headed to town. After 30 minutes there I went to the treadmill and went for 20 minutes there. I alternated between high incline/walking and no incline/running. Most of it was walking, which is fine! I did snap a pic for posterity today, you can see my friend the elliptical behind me!

That's about all for now! Have a great day :)

  1. 50 minutes? Holy cow, Debi! You are turning into a machine!

    I think I might start back to Smoothie King and see if that helps my morning hunger. I'm dying by lunch these days...
