Hey everyone! I have been gone from this board for awile now. I got wrapped up into my MySpace profile, tattoo shop, kids, motorcycle club and work. :sad: :eek: Still here, still banded, still stuck at the same damn weight since April...:mad: Oh well, it's ok though. It has saved me money on buying new clothes and the fact that I have gone from a 22 to a 14 is a big accomplishment in of itself....so not too, too worried about it. Going in for an adjustment next week to get back on track. New year, new plan, new attitude towards alot of things. I have a friend of mine that I don't see very often that had the bypass done 2 weeks prior to me being banded and I honestly have to say that I am so glad that I chose this surgery over that one. She looks very gaunt, her hair is falling out and she looks very ill....too thin, too scary for me! I think that might be part of the reason that I slacked off on some of the weightloss and being so disciplined like before....not trying to make an excuse but I could never, ever be that thin or let myself get there. The more she lost the more sick she looked and I just can't see myself like that....I like curves not bones, sorry. I have just had a different attitude lately...been through alot the past year and it has affected me in a good way. I am more of a stronger person with a bitchier sense of 'me'. Nothing really bad has happened as far as my relationships with the DH or family....it has been being stabbed in the back by people I thought were my friends...it gives you a whole new perspective on things. SO! That is where I have been lately. Hopefully Dr. Spivak doesn't yell at me for being such a bad baby lately...I have been partying alot and I will tell him that too. But with the new year coming I will make better choices and get my ass back on track with my exercising and such. Take care!
