My ONE Year BAND ANNIVERSARY

One year ago today 8/24/09 was one of the best days of my life. I was nervous and scared at this time I was hooked up to an IV and my poor hubby you could tell was nervous. They make you do a will before the hospital so it became real that there was a risk to doing this surgery. That day I was blessed with courage and hope to stop my fight with obesity once and for all.

I sit at my computer crying real tears of happiness, this year has been amazing. 

I have met new friends from blogging that I have developed REAL friendships with we talk about everything our life, slime. pbs everything. I don't where I would be with out being able to BBM Kristen or Angie or my daily texts from Jenny. These girls have made my journey so much richer,  I love you xo!

And to my husband who loved and supported me no matter what weight I was. He has truly been my biggest supporter and cheerleader. I love him and this journey has strengthened our marriage. I still remember the next day after surgery while I was resting that he came up and laid his hand on my back making sure I was still breathing, lol.

I have lost 85lbs I am currently 3lbs away from goal. It is my TOM and I am fighting with 4lbs of vacation weight and a crazy weekend. I have seen goal once, but have bounced all over the place. Goal would have been sweet today but no journey is perfect.

Thank You to the blogging community you are the BEST support system a girl could wish for so looking forward to Chicago.


If you are thinking about getting the band I have two words for you DO IT! 


Ladies I lift my glass of Champagne to you and say cheers! What a difference a year and a band makes! Love to all xo
