been gone a while sure am glad to see the same great folks are still hanging out doing what they do best.. Weight loss has slowed down for me but it's still going just SOOOOO slowly.. mostly i think it's my own fault still making interesting choices.. Managed 6 days in Israel with a 1lb loss so i'm very happy there..

just got to find my pace again get back on top of things. sister was here visiting.. i'm down 60lbs more or less she didn't see much of a diff.. :( i guess there's my motivation if i'm going to visit her in the fall i want another 30 gone by then

Family you got to love them.

What I appreciate more is knowing I can do a lot more today then I could 7 years ago. Just getting off the couch was an adventure now I just get up. What used to be embarrassing was getting into a crowded elevator either the alarm would go off or my butt was not in far enough and the door would not close.

Life is so much better now even if no one ever noticed.

Another thread today made me think of this quote (nod to B-52 and CG both, in-house philosophers):

"Try not. Do or do not...There is no try." -- YODA

We are doing it! Yes, slow sometimes, whatever, but it is do. Or do not. There is no try.

CG you are a rock star. 2 years and still going strong. I have been following your progress for a year or more. and always admired your "real" comments. yes Jim there are some in every family that make comments like "you are too skinny" . that is music to my ears lol. I am far from skinny but love it when people call me "skinny Minnie". Common Sense is so important in the Lapband life. If you just use it you will be successful. Have a great day everyone.

me a rock star........yeah, i can dig it LOL

thank you for the on going support

you know i love you poker friend of mine

Update on the Poker Star.. I won $500 last week so, I didn't play this week. kind of a superstition thing. I had kids up for dinner last night because my niece from Orlando was here and I had about 4 oz of rib eye steak and a few bites of potato. All is well in Lap World.

just had to share today I was leaving for a party and a neighbor saw me he didn't recognize me and when he realized who I was all he said was wow u lost some weight I replied yeah a little bit LOL ( I didn't scream like 100 LBS i tell now one but you guys how much I lost ) but he just shook his head and said wow and it made me feel awesome. Plus the fact that my outfits yesterday and today were so awesome with my new haircut and spray tan I was looking and feeling fantastic lol self esteem was 100000000000000 % this weekend Great weekend and the compliments were great. A few of my face book friends who advent seen me in real life compliment me on my transformation my trainer likes to post pictures after each class and didn't realize some people can see it but they were so supportive and telling me how I inspired them that I am at the gym at 530 am great day and great weekend celebrating great things in my friends and families life. Two weeks left being 38 and this was an amazing year 39 is going to have to top it though lol

Hi Friends! I'm back from my mountain vacation. I ended the week with the NC Lions State Convention. I had so much fun catching up with friends from across the state.

This picture is from Friday night.

Friday nights are "Fun Night" with casual dining and a band or other entertainment. food was not so easy this weekend. I was glad I had taken some things with me :) And when I say it wasn't so easy, this next picture is a clue.

Yes...A room full of chocolate. I just stood there and stared at it. I ate one...ONE...bite and then just walked out. I could feel my skin crawling with that chocolate addiction!!!!

Anyway...it was a fun week. Now I'm back at work and trying to figure out what emails need to be answered and which ones can be ignored!

Have a great Monday!

I play in Ocala at the Jai Alai/Poker room. it's real money and they pay $500 every half hour for the high hand so I've won that numerous times plus I usually win $100 or so during the day. it's low stakes texas holdem.

that sounds like fun. I play Omaha hi/lo. I could play in CT at Foxwoods but it's 4/8 and I can't afford that and also I have never played in a large game like that. When real money was allowed on Poker Stars I played $3-$5. games only.

Yes, indeed! So healthy and happy. And isn't it marvelous to be able to have one piece of chocolate, to just to be able to enjoy the bite and let that be that. Amazing.

Here are just some more pics someone told me that I looked real good and more healthy this weekend that I hadn't seen in a while, I wish I didn't have to use my tablet to upload pics , and now I have to find out if I have a IOS phone or android , I thought it was a android and I wanted to be able to share pics, when I upgraded from y flip to a newer version, it is frustrating me and a trying to find out how to get my pics from my computer or laptop so I could share my weekend blast photos or just any.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.
