Happy New Me! Happy New You!

2011; it's ours - to make whatever we want. And that my friends, is so exciting!

I am so excited for what this year will bring. Top of my list - babies!! If all goes as planned, we will start our 4th treatment in March, maybe February. I know this weight loss will aid greatly and I just can't wait.  I'm also excited about my continued journey of a healthy life style, good choices and new opportunities life will bring my way.

I've taken a week or two off from blogging. With the holidays, family, friends, football - and since I met my end of the year goal, I took a a tiny break. My weight has totally maintained - but I did enjoy some holiday goodies. Today, I start back full force. Banded only 3 months ago and hitting a loss of 51.7 by the end of the year has totally changed me. I feel fabulous, both physically and mentally. My self-esteem is out the roof and I have my smile back. I missed that. Only 38 to go until goal, I pray for my continued success. As I read not to long ago, "I'm still a cow, only a smaller cow". At 207, onederland is the near distance and I'm so eager to get there. I can't wait until this feeling of being the "big girl" goes away. I can't wait until my face slims way down. I think I am most excited about that; I've always had "chunky cheeks". I'm over them already!

I'm back to the gym this week, back to healthy choices, back to rocking this band. I did get a small fill last week, which makes me at a total of 6.6cc. 

I wish everyone a fabulous new year! If your a new bandster - sending much success your way. If your on the journey with me or have reached goal - sending hugs and wishes for continued success. Thanks for all your support thus far. You all are the best!!


  1. Congratulations on the 50 lb loss! Terrific! I am starting out at basically the same as you and was banded 2 weeks ago. Down 19 from my high and would be thrilled to be down 50 in 3 months!! I am really excited for what the new year will bring too. Good luck with the babies! I went through it too - has its ups and downs but all worth it :)
