My Weightloss Journey

Happy Dance!

Holy moly!!  When I discovered this, I literally did a Happy Dance (dramatically enough for my hubby to give me the "you're crazy" look).   Haha!

Who would've thought that someone would be interested in reading about me?   I know this may be a minor detail to some, but to me, this makes this journey all the more real.  I've been reading lots of bandsters' blogs and I'm following their milestones.  The reason I wanted so badly to join this blogging community was to receive the same love and support.  It seems to me that what helps others get through their good and bad days is the constant support of their followers.  Now, I have some!  :)   I feel like now I can truly take on this new challenge!

So, Welcome to my followers:  Debi, Grace, Michelle and Jessica!  I'm excited to read your blogs and to share my experiences with you!  Thank you for your support!

(click on each of their names to check out their blogs!  Jessica, I can't seem to find your blog.  If you give me your blog address, I'd love to visit your site!)

 ** Update:  I believe Jessica's blog is here (Jessica correct me if I'm wrong).  I didn't realize it, but I'm already following her blog and I recommend you check it out, too!


  1. I know exactly how you feel!!

    I checked my blog several times a day (and still do!!), and was jumping for joy everytime a new Follower joined in!

    Like I said, start to leave comments on the blogs you are Following and you will be surprised how fast you list of Follower's grows!!!

    Can't wait to find out when your Surgery will be.

  2. I know exactly how you feel!!!! Having a support group really helps the ups and downs of WLS so much easier to bear!!!!
    Good luck!!!!!

  3. I'm so happy you popped by and left you address. Now we can go through this together. :)
