Help From my Bandster Friends Please....

Today I had my Dr. appointment. It went really well. I am still on track. The dr. is very pleased with my progress. He had nothing bad to say all good. Except for the fact that he is greedy he says he wants to see more. On April 11th it will be 8 months out for me I have lost 10-12 lbs per month. I need a fire back. You know the one everyone has in the first few months. I know I am doing good, but I want to see more to. When I look at how far I have come, the stuff I can do now, and how I feel.... its amazing, but still would like to see the scale move better. I am in no way upset. I am very proud. If that makes any sense at all? Any of you ever felt that way through your journey?

I have started going to the gym more. I already see Deb my personal trainer twice a week still since I had surgery, but I started going more to my local gym.

My Birthday Week!

I would like to let everyone know that this week is my birthday week!

I have been at work for 6 days in a row and I have tomorrow to go before I finally get a day off. Been a busy bee, but things are going good. I have a lot of new opportunities going on at work which I am very excited about. Yesterday and today I was given birthday presents and last night my aunt Nita was in town. She made me my favorite cake she makes and everyone sang to me. My birthday is not till Thursday, but with all these festivies going on I have declared my official birthday week long celebration.

Lap band life is going well. I am seven months out. Still dropping down I am right about 85 right last time I was there. I have not weighed lately sometimes the scale at home is discouraging, so I go to the dr once a month. I have decided to only weigh then. I have slowed down a little with the weight loss. I have not changed much of anything. I still watch my carbs like crazy like I am supposed to and I am still working out with my trainer twice a week, and going to the gym at least two other times a week. Not sure what the problem is there. Its not dropping as fast as it was, but I am not getting discouraged because I am so happy at this point with my success. People are noticing and that makes me want all this even more. I love my life right now. It feels great to be doing good a something. I hope everyone is having a great week and I will post pics up from the birthday soon, but for now these are some recent pics.

Me and My friend Melaine


My mom and me. We went to the park. I walked three miles around the track, and then took a break and we swang on the swings together. It was a great moment. I have not done that with her in over 20 something years. What a great moment. Love love her...
