Before and After...Nearly 40 pounds!

Today I thought I would post some pictures of me before surgery and me now.
I'm down nearly 40 pounds and thought this would be appropriate to see the changes that have taken place.

This was me waiting for surgery 6/7/12....

                                                                           And this was me yesterday 8/18/12.......

Today I am 39 pounds down since 6/7/12--Exactly 10 weeks since surgery today.
Sometimes when I feel like I am not losing weight fast enough I think--
How else would I have lost this much weight in this short of time without my band???
There is no way possible!
This also means I am wearing a size 1X compared to a 3X 10 weeks ago!
Seeing the progress is motivating!


I also have been telling myself this frequently when I feel like I just do not have time for myself...

That keeps me motivated to keep going and make at least time for 1 mile.
Ta Ta Till Next Time!

All the things I LOVE!

I wasn't planning on doing any blogging tonight...mainly because I'm tired and want to go to sleep. However, I started thinking about all the things I love and it got me thinking. So I'm just going to do a random list tonight....of LOVES:
My furry baby Zoe
Riding motorcycle
The lake
Pool days
Cookies, bars, icecream (oh no! Yes I do love them)
Garage sales
Flea markets
Antiques/Vintage "stuff"
Palm Trees

Oh yes....that lap band I love....however that leaves me thinking there are some things that I can't add to my LOVES list at this time. I am at exactly 8 weeks post op. I do not love exercising, I do not love eating healthy. But am I doing it anyway...YES! Do I hate it, no...but I still don't love it. It's somewhere in between floating in space. I wonder tonight if some day I will be able to make this list again and be able to add both of those to my existing list.
