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.

Whoa Nellie

A week since my last update? So sorry friends!

I had a B.A.D. Sunday. I got on the scale for the BOOBs challenge to find out that I had gained 3 pounds.




What is up with me?!? So after a few hours of crying and whining about it. I decided to suck it up and admit that I have been less than stellar on the choices and the activity. I immediately remedied that by going to work out at my office's fitness center - which is blessedly empty on a Sunday afternoon! I managed 10 straight minutes on the elliptical (an amazing feat for me) plus some actual running on the treadmill and some biking as well as stretching and some sit ups. I felt much better after I did all of that and have been doing very very good since Sunday.

I went to my support group last night and confessed all. That was really hard for me to do, but I did it. And I have my work out clothes with me to hit the fitness center again today after work. Yahoo!!

I sure hope everyone else is doing better than I am :)


  1. Glad to see you are picking yourself up and doing what you need too!! Sometimes that is so hard to do. Great job!

  2. as long as you admit it and move on. great job at the gym! running is always hard for me.

  3. Just dust your shoulder off, you'll get it off in no time!

  4. I love you so much I can't stand it! :) You inspire me so freaking much, that sometimes I don't remember that you can't always inspire yourself. You know when I get my new bugg, that I will be checking back in with you everyday, right? Big hugs, chica!!

  5. I'm so sad I missed the meeting last night! I had the dates mixed up! :(

  6. Yesterday is gone, tomorrow is yet to be.. All we have is today! And i'm sooooo proud of your decision to work out and attend yoir meeting!! Way to go!

  7. I am so proud of you for sucking it up! Plus for running on the treadmill. 3lbs seems like mostly water weight my dear. It will be gone in no time!

  8. I gained three pounds too! Don't sweat it, you acknowledged what you did wrong and changed it. My gain had to do with the fact that I weighed in at night (as apposed to in the a.m., which is when I usually do), and the copious amounts of alcohol the night before! I hope you have a beter weigh in this coming Sunday!
