Time to celebrate! One year "Bandaversary"
I know for me time seems to be flying in general, but I think the past 366 days since I had my WLS moved at warp speed!!
I could on and on about all the positive changes that have occurred, but I'll spare those of you who are reading thi... Read more
So the good news was that my youngest daughter was back home and came to visit my DW and I Saturday evening and Sunday. The bad news was that it made for a VERY BUSY Sunday for me:
- Cooked breakfast
- Drove to beach (45 minutes away) to... Read more
Got home from our trip to W VA yesterday, in-laws in tow, around 2:30PM. Got them on the road and had planned to have a low-key, put up your feet kind of afternoon. Ah, but the weather gods had other plans. Around 3:30PM, it got VERY dark, an... Read more
It's GREAT to have the windows open (FINALLY!)
OK, so maybe for one day before the heat moves back in, but it is GREAT to have the windows open and enjoy the cool outdoor air! I think it has been at least a month since we last had them open!
Well, back to work...just wanted to share.... Read more
Updated Score: Me = 1, fajitas = 1 (but I really am winning!)
OK, you are probably wondering about this blog and what it is all about. I'll try to keep this as "ungross" as possible....
Rewind to last Wednesday. My DW and I decided we wanted Mexican food for dinner, so we went to one of our favorite... Read more
More fun clothes shopping....
Stopped at one our local department stores this morning after breakfast (for those of you in PA/NJ/DE/MD, it was Boscovs), as I had two goals to accomplish:
1) Get a new wedding band (I'll explain in a minute)
2) Get some new jeans for ... Read more
As some of you may know, I enjoy cooking, and especially breakfast! My normal routine is to cook my DW and I breakfast on Thursday mornings. However, I was still in recovery mode yesterday morning from a battle Wednesday evening between me and... Read more
So that is what 100 pounds looks like...
August 18, 2012 has been a significant day for a few reasons, both exciting:
1) My DW and I traded in our 2005 Toyota Sienna for a 2012 Chrysler Town and Country (both minivans)
2) I FINALLY crossed the 100 pound weight loss mark on... Read more
Went out to dinner with our best friends last evening. Sadly, they are moving to Oklahoma and we are already missing them! They are responsible for introducing my wife and I on a blind date over 12 years ago, so we are very close!
I was t... Read more
Today would have been my mom's 79th birthday. As some of you may remember, she passed away 7 months ago on December 31, 2011 after a long illness. No doubt she is in a much better place, free from the pain of her earthly body!
I do miss... Read more
Less than 10 to go....
I normally don't do Monday morning weigh-in's, but I was feeling rather frisky this morning, so I decided "what the heck!". And since I was a good boy over the weekend by getting LOTS of exercise in (mowing the entire yard over 3 days) and keep... Read more
300 days since LB surgery
My calendar reminded me that today marks 300 days since I had my Lapband surgery. As I have said throughout this journey, it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Not only the weight loss, but also the healthy living -- better eating... Read more
Victory over fair food!
For the past several years (6 years to be exact) we've been attending regional and state fairs (2 years at the "Big E" up in MA and 4 here in DE at the Delaware State Fair) and of course there is nothing quite as satisfying as fair food! Not go... Read more
Passed one threshold...another very close!
Great weigh-in this morning -- 189.2 pounds! First time under 190 in what seems like forever! 34 years for sure!
Another one is rapidly approaching: 187. When I hit that mark, it will be an even 100 pounds lost since I actively starte... Read more
RIP Jon Lord!
For those of you who followed the rock music scene in the 60's and 70's, you may have read on Monday 7/16 that Deep Purple co-founder Jon Lord (keyboards) passed away. Since I have been a long time DP fan, this one hurts just a bit more, but giv... Read more
