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!

Changing My Frame Of Mind

My whole frame of mind has changed due to my band.  Let me explain................

Pre-op when the nurse told me I needed to loose 32 lbs. to qualify for surgery I wondered how on Earth I would accomplish it.  It seemed like an insurmountable task.  "32 lbs!,"  I cried, "If I could loose 32 lbs. I wouldn't need Lap-Band,"  I complained.

Fast forward 5 months...................

I have 36 more pounds to loose until I hit Onederland.  My thoughts now........

36 lbs. is nothing!  I will kick 36 lbs.' ass before Christmas.

Why the change?  Well, I definitely have more confidence in my abilities these days.  And my confidence has come from being banded.

The band has given me back my self-confidence that had been weighed down by 318 lbs. 

How freeing!!!


  1. Hi Brenda. I am new Follower of yours. I am in awe seeing you lost 84 pounds. I was banded on May 27, 2011 and have only lost 34.
    I am loving what I am reading so far.

  2. Robyn.........just 34 lbs.!? That is a lot of weight to no longer be carrying. I credit my success so far with tracking everything I eat and drink on myfitnesspal.com. It is the only thing that keeps me accountable. Thanks so much for following my blog!
