    I did a step class last night. I have not recuperated from my first Zumba class Saturday yet. I was going to go to the gym tonight but in the winter my life revolves around good weather driving. The storm has just started here

    An amazing woman. To believe you are important is very difficult as a mom, caregiver and daughter. Keep up the good work!

    Thank you my board friends. It really helps to have some people to chat with. I'm growing quite fond of this board!
    Maybe it's the meds! Ha
    Good luck with dates Liz. Glad to see you so socially busy
    I'm down for a few days. Gotta not overdo things
    One huge self project this year for me
    TT .. Really never thought I would do that. But I'm 60 and widowed and I'm WORTH it. Change can be good!

    I went to Slimband. There aren't a lot of Slimband people on here because we have our own private community. Slimband was great! Everyone has been so nice and helpful, and the support team is always there for me when I have questions. I am 3 weeks post-op today

    I was just thinking about this as I tied my shoes. When I was 300lbs, I couldn't breathe when I bent over to tie my shoes! Now, not only can I breathe, but I can even continue a conversation while doing so! ...it's these (not so) little things that make this journey so worth it!

    MarieMarie reacted to spartanmatina in 199!   
    Just weighed myself and I am 199 with a starting weight of 287. My lap band surgery was completed on January 15, 2014. I feel (and look-/LOL) amazing! I have energy and am accomplishing so many great things in my life. The lap band gave me a new lease on life. I'm loving ONE-derland. By the way I haven't even officially started exercising yet. Just moderate walking and so forth. I'm so proud. I'm 5'11 and 199 now so slowly getting out of that overweight stage lol

    MarieMarie reacted to mrsjec in hey all .. was screen name runt   
    Hello, haven't been on here for a long time. Wanted to say hello to everyone and see who was still here. I think I have done OK with the band. I have passed my goal weight by 15 pounds. (I think those last pounds were my boobs!) Had a few rough issues and my band had to be emptied. ..as in fluidless for over a year now (still down 75 pounds from then) so I guess all is well. Except I could hurt someone for a beer!!!!

    MarieMarie reacted to Miss Meg in My first real NSV   
    So today marks 9 weeks since my surgery and I've lost a total of 14kg (30lbs for those that don't use metric). This week also marked my first real NSV (Non scale Victory). I made a visit to my hairdresser (who also happens to be one of my besties) and she made the comment to me that when she grabbed at my hair it felt like the back of someone else's head. That might sound weird but she was referring to the fact that the nape of my neck has changed and the 'hump' at the back of my neck has gone!!! great feeling...

    MarieMarie reacted to Keeper in NSV   
    I am the kind of person that likes to weigh every day (for good or for bad) and am very results-oriented. So sometimes it is hard to look at the scale and not see a change and yet think in terms of NSV's.
    Taking some before and 'after' pictures for me has been very rewarding! I couldn't believe what a difference just 20 pounds made.
    Also, my mother-in-law called me quite some time back and asked what bra size I wore because she was at a department store and they were having a mad sale. I was so embarrassed to tell her the truth (band size, not cup) that I told her 2 sizes down. and of course I couldn't wear them. That was probably over a year ago. But guess what?! I can fit into them!
