This is OUR year

Happy New Years Eve ladies!!

I was afraid to make this post (that THIS is our year) so many years are wanting to lose weight. BUT I can say with out fear this year WILL be an AMAZING year for all of us!

This afternoon I am heading to my hairdresser, thinking of cutting a few inches and hoping that my hair becomes healthy! I have started taking Biotin and plan on buying Nioxin(shampoo).

The hubby and I are heading to my parents to ring in the new year and have a sleepover! We are expecting to get ALOT of snow this weekend!

The scale is being OH so kind this week 186.2  40lbs since surgery! 57lbs all together

a "hater" on Christmas :(

Holidays when we are so concerned with our water intake, not over indulging and trying not to PB at the dinner table. We never imagine facing a "hater".
My first hater experience happened today, from my Nana (stepmothers mom) who I have a good relationship with. 

She says straight  to my face I can't stand all those Lap Band commercials that are on TV, it's DISGUSTING! 

I was so insulted, it was a slap in the face. I am 4 month post op and am down 36lbs since surgery 53lbs total. 

Just sad where you need the support the most there can be ignorant people. 

Gives me some fuel for the treadmill!! 

Merry Christmas ladies! Thanks for listening to me vent

"Most wonderful time of the year"

Is anyone else looking forward to after Christmas, when we aren't having to attend parties with all this food, cookies and cakes. I had 3 partys this past weekend and I bake truffles and cupcakes and didn't eat any of it.
Hoping I can stay strong Christmas Eve and Christmas!
Is anyone else's band feeling weird with potlucks or different things that you haven't tried before (HAM) ??!

The scale did not budge this week :(

UGH!! This week was frustrating the scale didn't budge at all.  I am only down .4 this week.
Really hoping this week will be better, even though I have  parties to go too.

What do you ladies do when your scale has stalled??

I FINALLLLLLLLLY weigh less than my hubby!!

Woo Hoo! I love my hubby. But it feels so nice to know I weigh less than him. He is 6'2 and has always been around 195 give or take a few lbs. I know this is a silly goal to have :) But I am sure for you ladies out there it's nice to know you are smaller than your partner (even if it's only by a few lbs)

3rd Fill

Hey ladies!

Had my 3rd fill today with my NP. My doctor has us do 4 days of liquids after, 2 clear 2 full. UGH!!
Anyone else have to do this? I try to forget about it but it's hard to when people at work are eating.
What do you do to spice up your clear liquids phase?? I enjoyed some miso soup for lunch.
