Loving my band ♡ ♡ ♡ ♥ ♥ ♥

I know I'm a new bandster, but I loved it when I put a dress on this week that fit again..! Several months ago I couldn't even put it on. I was talking about this last night, and I realized that for the first time in my life, I am going to lose this weight. Its just that simple. I used to always say.."if I lose weight" "I'll try this diet, or that diet" " I will go to the gym" or use Alli, or whatever! It's different now...and I don't think that I really knew how much my life would change. So, I just wanted to give my band a shout out. Cuz it's the bomb :)

I lost 1 lb this morning, gotta love that. I actually cooked yesterday (I don't usually do the cooking), I made a low fat chicken veggie soup with low sodium chicken and veggie broth, and all the fresh veggies I could find in the fridge. It was so good, and I even had a small piece of cornbread with it. This whole solids thing isn't too bad.

I thought I would share with everyone today two of my puppies..just because they are adorable and I want everyone to smile!

They are not really trying to kill each other here, they just play like this..
Enjoy your day all!

Ps..I know I'm new at the blogging thing, but I saw that Barbara nominated me (curtsy) Thank you thank you. At this poin I am unsure if I am supposed to do something, like if there is a proper nominee etiquette.


  1. Congrats on your loss! You are really working the band and isn't it awesome to know that this is it, that you won't be rebounding with the weight gain? I have to pinch myself every now and then cause it is so great!

  2. I am so happy for you.
    And I know just how you feel. It is totally different than every time before.


  3. Congrats!! I can't wait to have that feeling about MY band, too. The soup sounds wonderful, heck anything sounds wonderful right now on this preop diet, but I do love veggies so that one got me. ;)

    Your dogs are VERY cute!!

  4. It is so cool when your head gets to the point where you are like...hey, I am gonna do it this time! Love it!

    Congrats on your loss!

  5. Yay for nsv's like clothes fitting again... congrats!!!

  6. I so know where you're coming from!
    I've stalled on the weightloss and have two more weeks til my first fill, but it's so good to know that the weight I've lost so far isn't coming back.
    PS I also nominated you for the blog award cos (without sounding like a weirdo stalker) I love your blog!

  7. That is fantastic news...well done. I was thinking all those things before I got my band and that is what finally made the decision for me. I was sick of losing it, trying to or feeling down because I couldn't. I love the band too...oh and your pups are so cute.

  8. lol Look at the faces on those two - cute as!! Congrats on fitting into that dress.. aren't the NSV's exciting. Have a lovely weekend. x
