About Me

TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

Who knew...(or things I never knew before being banded)

Who knew......

I could go on vacation, eat fried shrimp at the beach (in moderation) and still loose 2 lbs.
I would feel full after eating about 1/4 of the portion put before me in a restaurant.
I would turn away dessert because I really, REALLY was full.
I would walk away from junk food because I am just not hungry.
I would make a better choice than fries at a restaurant because really after the protein I would be full.
I would EVER turn away a basket full of bread and butter.
I would have power over food instead of food having power over me.

I love this band!


  1. I haven't quite got to that point yet but looking forward to it. Glad your band is helping you as it should.

  2. It's great, isn't it! It's so bizarre to realize there really is no point in ordering a side (fries) at a restaurant because even if you want them, you'll eat one or two and throw away the rest.

    Sometimes, 9 months after surgery, I eat and think "oh my gosh I ate so much food"-- but then I really consider what I ate and realized that it is NOTHING compared to before. My idea of "a lot" has changed drastically.
