I can't believe I haven't "officially" been back on this site sooner. Life has been busy. Shortly, after my surgery my mom took a turn for the worse and until May 12, 2011. My days were work, family and mom. Taking care of her was one of the hardest things I have ever done. Watching a loved one suffer is heart wrenching. My life was consumed and now since she is dancing with the angels I am slowly trying to put my world back together. The empty space in time and in my heart haven't been so easy on the new lapband life and I admit that I could have done better but I'm back. I've lost 80 pounds as of today and would like to lose another 40. One foot in front of the other - one day at a time.


I can't figure out the new site so for all of those July 2010 bandsters and my friends. I send you love and good wishes.


The reality of all of this process is about love - self love and then our love for one another. Say it often.

So sorry about your mom! I bet as hard as it was it was also the most rewarding thing to do. Yeah the new site has taken a lot of us quite awhile to get used to and some of the people left due to the changes! Congrats on your weight loss! I am so sure your mom was very proud of you and is watching you now!! As luckydog said...keep blogging..it will be very rewarding for you! I wish you continued success! Take care!
