Braveheart #101

Overnight, two followers joined my blog bringing me to 101 and I decided I wanted to introduce them. By coincidence both are from Ottawa.

#100 is Vickie who was banded April 16th and her blog is Digital Diva Lap-Band Blog. I was scanning LBT last night and saw a question from her about local support groups and sent her a message. She is just getting on Blogger but you can still visit her and leave a link to your blog. 

#101 is braveheart, has not been banded and wants to be anonymous. Within 5 minutes I knew who it was. To see if you can guess here are some hints:

  ~I have known her for over 27 years.
  ~She has the same middle name as me.
  ~The first Christmas present she got was a Care Bear.
  ~She is the recipient of one of my new Coach purses.

So I am outing her right here on my blog. It is my daughter, aka Braveheart, which will now be her name in cyberspace. How did I know—well Braveheart was the name she had while in sorority at university (they were big into Care Bear names). I also noticed that the only blog she had joined was mine. Hmmm. I had a feeling, so sent her an e-mail and asked. Mom’s just know.

Now I will have to be careful about what I write, although I don't think that will ever happen—I tell it like it is. Maybe I should get her to do a vlog like Jen's daughter. I’ll have to always mention what a fantastic daughter she is and how proud I am that she is mine. Well I guess that IS true. I wasn’t sure how she got the link until I remembered I had sent it to her friend’s mother, who was banded last year (thank you Mme. S.). I am actually glad she can now read my thoughts as I sometimes don’t hear from her for weeks. But next Sunday is Mother’s Day (hint-hint)!

Thanks to all my followers and to those who follow me but keep anonymous (like my BFF—L.). This journey would be hard if not for you. If you are following me but I am not following you, please, please leave a comment with a link to your blog. I would love to hear about you too!

That would be really cool if you could get your daughter to do a vlog like Jen's daughter did. It's so interesting, and important, to see their take on us, and on our weight loss/ health issues.

I just visited Vickie's site. I think she's the first blogger I've found that was banded at the same clinic I was so thanks for the post. Neat that you're daughter is following, it would be interesting to hear her perspective.

Geez, glad I didn't get on Braveheart's blog and start bad mouthing you. I would have been in big trouble. :-) As if I'd have anything bad to say. LOL.

Hi All!! thanks for the Link Sandy! Much appreciated. I've started the process of moving to Blogger. I've got all my entries up and have created the redirect. The address is the same: www.digitaldivablog.com but it will probably take 48 hours for it to switch from my iWeb account to my Blogger.

In the meantime, good luck to you dear Braveheart and thanks again!

Very cool!

Girl Bandit said...

Yay for the 101 followers...congrats. And welcome to the newbies especially Braveheart...we love you mum and I will take good care of her in Chicago

Camille said...

Yay! That is terribly sweet of your daughter to want to be 100!

Janice said...

Those were my first thoughts too..."how sweet." It is great to have her support. Congrats on 100+!!! You have been so great with your comments on blogs. We appreciate it!

That's cool.

Just to clarify. My sorority isn't big into Care Bear names. When we join we receive a nickname (meaning and reasoning behind it is secre). The nickname Braveheart was chosen for me. Other sisters in the sorority have other names, which are not carebears.

To all those who follow my mom and are BOOBs (I love that acronym btw), congratulations on your journey.

It is a choice that was most likely hard to make, but once you commit to something (whether banding or another option), you must stick with it and draw inspiration from those around you to stay committed.

I hope my mom is one of those people for you, I know she is for me.
