  1. I've been offline for a very long time... Just wanted a few lovely guys and gals to know that I'm checking up on them. And, for the most part, it sounds like everyone is doing very well! Congrats! xoxo

    Living with the band is like being in a marriage or relationship

    Easy Breezy....

  12. Ugh! This last 10 lbs. (now 15, as of this week!!) is killing me! :(

  13. I'm feeling optimistic again!! I can actually see muscle defintion... and my "finish line" is in sight! :)

  14. Eating too many sweets!! Up 2 lbs. this week. :(

  15. I'm only about 15 lbs. away from goal!! I might revisit my "goal" weight after I reach it, but for now... it's terribly exciting to think about!! :)

    Rant and Rave

    Fantastic post!! I love you. lol! I can relate... completely! Continued success and best wishes.
  17. I haven't been very active on Lapband lately, but I'm still checking in now and again. Looks like my friends are all still making remarkable progress!! :)

  18. Today was my first day training for a 5K! Pretty exciting stuff. :)

    Bad Night. feeling down doesnt begin to cover it..

    At 21 you are a lot stronger than most! I would have been crushed and that event would have fueled my depression and eating, but not you!! Girl, you sound like you're going to do just fine with this process. I know most of us have all been wounded by hurtful words, but like Dee said, you will be that much more experienced and thoughtful when it's your time to lend support. Heck, you're in the postion to lend support now... just talking about your evening certainly sparked my fire! We should consider ourselves very lucky -our surgery will help us become our better selves, but being an ugly, ignorant, and cruel person on the inside is inoperable!
  20. 5 lb. loss this week!!! I knew I was feeling thinner! I've reached a very important goal for me...

    when I was fat

    This is beautiful! I think people do treat us differently when we're obese. However, in fairness, I treated myself differently too. The changes and transformation from losing excess weight are almost amazing... sooo many nsv that make us stronger and better. Congratulations Dee! ♥

    So now I'm gonna be rude

    "That is why people end up having such a lonely life because they think too much about how other people are when in all reality what you are thinking is farther from the truth." This is so true! I always try to tell myself, "nah, that person couldn't possibly be that rude." Of course it helps that I live in my own delusional world. lol. p.s. I'm with Domika... I love that you teach nutrition classes!!

    This is for the ladies who are banded?

    Yep, me too. The first time I got really tight I was like, "oh, this is a new feeling... not liking this at all!" ha. I noticed that I have a MUCH more difficult time with the band during my time of month and if I am sick.
