The first blogs that I started to follow were Gilly, Gen and Cara. In fact I was one of Gilly's first followers. I found her first, so eat your heart out! I can't tell you how great it felt to actually have them follow me. I now follow more than 130 blogs and have many followers myself. Never thought that would happen. To those who follow me, I hope I can inspire just a little that this band will work for you. Because it will. I now believe it way down in my heart.
I was one of the most skeptical persons in the world and yet, slow as my weightloss is, I have hope. After 4 months since being banded, I know I will succeed. On any other diet, I would have given up and regained the weight. What stuns me is that I know I will continue to lose weight even if I have to suffer through more plateaus and some small gains. I know it will happen because I watch and check out all my friends. If you can do it, so can I. I know losing weight is no longer hopeless.
Perhaps it is the wine I am sipping or the varied posts I try to read each day, but I am trusting this little band wrapped tightly around my stomach. It is there to help me. I still have to work the band, but really when Buddy (my band) and I are in sync, we succeed.
This is me in October 2009 in a pub in London, England. Beer isn't really my friend anymore but wine is tasting pretty darn good. I will take some new pictures when I reach 30 pounds lost (soon). And yes that is Sunday roast with Yorkshire Pudding (my fav) and gravy!I will now raise a toast to all of you who take the time and effort to blog about your life, the good, the bad and the ugly. If it weren't for all of the funny, sad, thoughtful, amazing, superfluous, heartbreaking, truthful, soul searching posts, we would not be the people we are today. So cheers to Bloggers. You have changed my life.
And as an aside, I make this strange error: I seem to always type bloogers about 90% or the time and have to correct it to bloggers. At least I get the "l" in the word or you would all be boogers.
