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.

  1. You forgot a :)

  2. Thanks for sharing...I'm trying to learn about everyone. :)

  3. This is cool. Thanks for sharing. I just might copy and do one myself!

  4. Haha, I don't like tomatos, but love Salsa...weird!

  5. Even though I'm a non-lefty, I love how you have left handed in your profile. Does being a left handed 'mouser' count? :)

  6. Lol, I love that you're offended that it was a R question instead of an L question about what hand is your dominant one!

    And how can you dislike tomatos? Are you real? And you've never stayed overnight in a hospital? You must not be real. :)
