A work in progress.......

Here I am on August 3, 2007.....1 week before my Lapband Surgery...at the beach....
This is the girl who left the beach........



Here I am on August 2, 2008......1 day less than a year later and almost 80 pounds later....at the beach....
This is the girl who went back to the beach......


And, this is the girl who came home........August 4, 2008......

Stay tuned........you never know where my journey will take me......

Hi Judi,
You really have set the bar for the rest of us! You look 10 years younger!!!WOOOOHOOOO! I just have to get my band in working order. I will be at Magee on Thursday. I can get the shoes then. They might be my ticket to get me back on track. Can;t wait to see you!
How about that Bob? He is a hoot!

You look FABULOUS! What a difference a year makes! I am SO impressed!

As for your comments at my blog, I HOPE Papa does NOT resurrect that jacket. Oh, dear! ; )

I LOVE being your BlogBaby twin! We are about as different as 2 girls can be, but you are very special to me. You are totally wonderful in my book! {{hugs}}

Hi Judi,
You do not know me. MariB (who is the winner of your flowered pink shoes) has mentioned your blog on our obesity forum so many times and then she posted the address last week. HAPPY SHE DID! Love your style! I have read it from the start in one week so I have seen you loose all that weight in 7 days! One bathing suit to the other! I had gastic bypass 2004, lost 285 in 2 years, gained about 100 back only in the past 6 months (loooong story) & just had a revision surgery in May. Have lost like 45.
Just want you to know that I think you are wonderful and doing a good job. THIS is a lot of work! Donnot let anyone tell you any different. WLS is no easy fix just a tool to help. A mighty tool. Congrats on your first year, dearie. Now the hardest part begins (year 2). I will keep with you and hope to get to be more friendly with you. Thanks to MariB for leading me to your wonderful blog! The best I've read!

Welcome back to the real world...ugh........And thanks for the lovely comment. Your the only one who coments. All my other friends read, then call me with comments. I've tried to train them. No success.
Dr. gave me pictures from my test, I was going to post them. But I decided against it. Enough people around town have seen my fat ass!!!
Only joking.(about posting the pics, of course)
