Today Is My 3rd Year Bandiversary

Leave a comment


Three years ago today, I saved my own life.

Happy 3-Years of successful weight loss and living as a healthy person to me. Three years ago today, I was at Queen of Peace Hospital in Mitchell, SD in the midst of having my lap band surgery. And Dr. Haley was my surgeon.

Three years later, I’ve lost a lot of inches and weight and gained back my self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence. I also have given away or sold a ton of oversized clothes and shoes. As well as other larger than life items that used to be more handy to me as a large person versus how I am now.

I still have a ways to go with my weight loss journey but it’s all about baby steps and I could not be more happier.

Thanks for all the encouragement and support these past 3 years!!!

My 8-year quest of being BANDED finally happened on June 27, 2012!!! While it will be nice to shed some pounds, my number one goal is to get HEALTHY ... And to get off ALL my diabetic meds and not have to rely on my CPAP at night and for naps. A few years back I made a decision to only surround myself with positive people and I have never looked back. At times I may be snarky perhaps a little wonky and I will apologize right now if I offend anyone as I blog about my life as I know it. Peace & love to all of my wonderful supporters.
