I had LapBand surgery in January, 2008 and am well on my way to finding the new me! I feel great and look even better :) I have lost about 90 pounds and have about 30 to go to goal! My life has taken many turns over this last year and I am so happy with the direction it is heading in - not only am I looking and feeling better physically but I am also happier and more emotionally stable! I am dating a wonderful guy right now who likes me for who I am and doesn't care how much I weigh. We have a great time together and I am enjoying getting to know him - as I have had to get to know myself!

Member Since: 8/2/2006

Fitness Minutes: 40,394

My Goals:
I want to learn how to eat better, lose some weight in a healthy manner, and in general become more healthy.

My Program:
I am still learning to use my band as a tool. I know that I have to watch what and how much goes into my mouth. I have to make the right choices and do what is necessary to keep the weight off.

Personal Information:
I have been divorced for almost 3 years now (wow! I can't believe it's been that long)... I have recently started dating a really great guy and am loving being with someone who cares for me just as I am without qualifications...

Other Information:
I like to read, do hand-crafts, sew, garden, and learn new things. I have started archery as a way to tone my arms and whatever else it will help :) And my new BF likes to hike in the woods so we are doing a more of that - I even bought some hiking boots so I am getting more prepared for hitting the great outdoors!

    Thanks so much for taking to look at my bandiversary pics and comment. That was so nice of you.

    How are you doing so far in your journey? It took me awhile to get the hang of my tool by using the right foods and way of eating but now I'm really going. AND I lost 6 months on a no loss no gain episode because work stress at the beginning but quit working 1.5 years ago so I could focus on my health and me!

    I am going to friend you so we can hang out now and then and I hope you will friend me back.
    Best wishes for your continued success! hope to hear from you soon.
    hugs, Paula

    Oh wow! Your FB story just makes me want to stay away. lol Still, I'd do all of the privacy settings, and keep work people away! Furthermore, if I'm not friends with them outside of work, I can't see why they'd care about my personal life--except nosiness (I tend to be very private and they're always asking questions). lol Thanks for your input!
