Original Goal... I did it!



I hit goal once... I CAN do it again!

1 year has came and went, and I have to say... If I can do this, ANYONE CAN!

So my one year banded date has past (June 9) and I am finally getting around to posting my pictures.  Sorry I didn't post them on the day, but since my brother passed away on my 6 month band day, I was having a bad day with the fact that he had been gone 6 months.  I also spent the weekend with my mother in St. Louis.  She has flown in from San Diego for the weekend and then she is leaving on Tuesday and taking my sons (15 & 11) with her for 5 weeks before my father brings them back in July.  They love traveling with my parents in the summertime.  They have been doing this for the past 4 summers.

While in St. Louis, we took my 2 year old to the zoo.  We had a wonderful time and it was awesome to be able to walk around and keep up with her without a problem.

So on to the pictures...  The befores were taken the night before my surgery.  I had lost some weight already and thought I was looking good.  How our perception is warped sometimes...

I know that many of you ask, "What do you eat?"  They glory of this whole process, is I eat ANYTHING I want!  Now mind you, I like to keep pretty well track of what I am eating, but if I want to eat cheese puffs and ice cream that day, I DO!  This band has allowed me to take control of my eating and my life.  I am loving every minute of this new life.   I myself am the first to be amazed by this transformation.  I know that if I can do this, ANYONE can!
