8 month bandaversary! & weekday dish

Eight months ago today Claire (my band) became my new BFF!
I am SO happy with my decision to have WLS.
Eight months, 70 + lbs down and 83 followers!

You, my peeps, are the gravy on my mash taters!!!!! xoxo

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the last post and I promise to explain a little more when I have some clearer thoughts about it...I know I need to let go off some stuff even more than I have. It seems with every pound that I lose (recently) I start to analyze more and more of my past, my fears, my relationships....

It is both empowering and terrifying!

So, a quick Weekday dish:
coffee, coffee, water, water

11 AM -
half a peeled apple
single serving cottage cheese
1 inch cube of cheddar cheese
1 wedge of wee brie

2 PM -
Big hunk-o-homemade-brownie, ugggh! It had walnut chunks in


5 PM -
Made beef stew in the crock pot. I had a bowl with approx. 8 pieces of the tender beef, two whole super small baby red potatoes and in total about 1.5 cups of the broth (onions, celery, tomatoes, beef broth)

10:55 PM -
good thing my leg is throbbing and my bedroom is upstairs....cause I'm wanting another brownie! But kids are home so tomorrow the dish will be in the sink (or on the counter, empty!)

My legs are both sans Varicose Veins now...I'm thrilled, well I will be thrilled, give me a month or so. All that is left is the spider vein treatment which will be a breeze in comparison. I have a couple pics of the veins being pulled but thought better of posting them, pretty graphic.

So, I owe this blog a couple posts that are in the works....
1.Father Hunger
2.I just came out on Facebook about my band and also to one person who I really wasn't sure about telling. It was positive and I will share soon!

Thank you for all the support! xoxo

  2. Happy Bandiversary! 70 pounds down is serious stuff, you're doing great with this thing! I hope your leg feels better every day.

  3. Happy Bandiversary and hope your leg feels better soon...

  4. 70+ pounds is a dream to me! Congratulations on your loss!

  5. What an accomplishment! 70 lbs gone in 8 months! Great job. If you do decide to post the picture, give me a heads up so I don't pass out on my computer. Although I'm sure there are some that would find it fascinating.

  6. Happy Bandiversary! And congrats on all the weightloss. I'm glad the varicose vein stuff is behind you and hope the healing continues with ease. I'll bet you'll be glad when its all finished!

    I can't wait to read more about what you are processing right now. I think we are in a very similar spot, in some regards.

  7. Happy B-day Claire! And you my dear friend Jen, are tackling a whole lot right now. And it's the same for me... with each pound lost... it makes me wonder why...

  8. Happy Bandiversary!!! What a milestone! What an accomplishment!! I'm giving you a standing ovation right now---take a bow!

  9. Happy eight month bandaversary! You've made great progress and glad to hear that your legs are healing nicely. Looking forward to reading the future posts you mentioned.

  10. Sorry your leg is still sore but at least you can not get to the brownies...LOL. Happy anniversary and i look forward to you covering those promised topics
