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!

Sunday Weigh In...............

Drum roll please...............

I almost fainted when I stepped on the scale this morning.

230.......I haven't seen 230 in 5 years!!

That is -5 lbs. this week.  I credit the 2 miles per day I started walking after dinner.  Loosing weight really gives you an energy boost!

I am hoping next week I will be in the 220's.  My mini goal is to be 225 by the 22nd of August.  That is the day the kids go back to school.

I just want to shock all the other mommies at pick-up.  I would say I would shock them in the morning but my kids lovingly refer to me as the pajama chauffeur. 

P.S. Does anyone out there in blog land take B-12 vitamins or get B-12 shots?  I am thinking of adding it to my vitamin menagerie.


  1. We're so close to eachother! banded a week apart, currently weighing 2 pounds apart (you weigh less... jerk...) Go Brenda! I can't WAIT to see the 220s on my scale.

  2. Rachel, I am a jerky von jerkinstein. My doc says I am way to much of an over-achiever (I am assuming you are too!). You had so much less to loose than I did. You always inspire me!

  3. Hey, I don't care who was banded when ... it's just so GREAT to read about your success ! Surgeon has not talked about B-12 (yet). You'll be golden by 1st day of school !

  4. I just had blood drawn last week to test for the vitamin levels. I'm a month post-op and I'm still pretty tired. I'm also bruising easily (iron level probably), or perhaps the surgery somehow changed my body and my thyroid level went wacko. Not sure, but I'll know the results later this week.
