I had LapBand surgery in January, 2008 and am well on my way to finding the new me! I feel great and look even better :) I have lost about 90 pounds and have about 30 to go to goal! My life has taken many turns over this last year and I am so happy with the direction it is heading in - not only am I looking and feeling better physically but I am also happier and more emotionally stable! I am dating a wonderful guy right now who likes me for who I am and doesn't care how much I weigh. We have a great time together and I am enjoying getting to know him - as I have had to get to know myself!

Member Since: 8/2/2006

Fitness Minutes: 40,394

My Goals:
I want to learn how to eat better, lose some weight in a healthy manner, and in general become more healthy.

My Program:
I am still learning to use my band as a tool. I know that I have to watch what and how much goes into my mouth. I have to make the right choices and do what is necessary to keep the weight off.

Personal Information:
I have been divorced for almost 3 years now (wow! I can't believe it's been that long)... I have recently started dating a really great guy and am loving being with someone who cares for me just as I am without qualifications...

Other Information:
I like to read, do hand-crafts, sew, garden, and learn new things. I have started archery as a way to tone my arms and whatever else it will help :) And my new BF likes to hike in the woods so we are doing a more of that - I even bought some hiking boots so I am getting more prepared for hitting the great outdoors!

    Hi, I saw your comment on the Have you started Christmas shopping thread, and thought I'd tell you that Sesame Street makes a kids digital camera, I've seen it in Big Lots for about $25, places like amazon may be even cheaper.

    Thanks for commenting on my board post! Great ideas for my pantry restocking effort. I like your sparkpage and saw the ren faire photo -- reminded me I used to be really involved in the ren faire and all the costuming a long while back. How fun. Thanks for the memory trip. :-) I've added you as a SparkFriend!

    When witches go riding,
    and black cats are seen,
    the moon laughs and whispers,
    ‘tis near Halloween.
