Reese's Story

I began my weight loss journey on November 11, 2009 - AGAIN. Fed up with my current health and weight, I decided to attend a seminar on LapBand. That is when I had the epiphany that I COULD succeed. I could get healthy and fit! And so, I set out to change my eating habits and my fitness level. I am on my way to a healthier me!
Update: On March 17, 2010, I had Lap Band Surgery. My hope is that it will help me control my hunger and food intake and be just one more tool to help me ...

Thankyou so much for commenting on my blog. Your kind words and support mean a lot to me! You are right on with your analogy of "put your own oxygen mask on before assisting others" when it comes to taking care of our health. While I know that is true, I need to be more mindful of it on a daily basis. Thanks for the great perspective!

Hey there Reese. Wanted to pop in and wish u The Happiest of Holidays... My Friend said to me today "What a difference a year can make!" and she's so right. It's been a Wonderful whirlwind for me. Never would have thought i'd be down 120lbs plus.. in under a year. All the other weight loss things i tried seemed so wasteful. lost 50lbs on Jenny Craig 2008 and it took me a year just to gain it all but 6months to gain it back plus 10lbs . craziness. I was so mad at myself for that. Anyway Meditation is my key to keeping it off this time i think. love it... and doing things to take care of me. Never did that years back either. Always there for everyone else and ignored me. Reese I'm so very proud of you . You're doing great at taking care of yourself. Congrats on your success GF. it's been super getting to know you this year. We're March surgery buddies bonded now. emoticon
