Three months banded (+ a couple days)

As of October 30th I have been banded three months. It is starting to become a lifestyle as opposed to a temporary fix/way to lose weight. My vitamins have become routine, moving my body each day in some form, choosing protein first and it doesn't feel like I am fighting for every pound or that I am deprived to the point where I am a raving bitch. (need to find something else to blame that on now I guess)
I am half way to my own goal, a weight where if I think about was very healthy and I looked pretty good. It is funny though because I had zero confidence then. I was much more uncomfortable in my skin than I have been as a plus size (16-22) person the last 20 years. Maybe I have just been too busy to give it a thought as I have been doing for others and neglecting my own needs and dreams.
Just a few random thoughts on this anniversary.....

  3. I know what you mean about not being comfortable at a weight in the past that you now would kill to be at! I look at pictures of myself and think "I can't believe I thought I was fat!" I think we all do that.
