Life is good in Who Dat Nation!

First, I want to thank everyone for all your nice comments while I was sick, I am all better now. Most Importantly....(drum roll) I lost 2 lbs this week WOOT! WOOT! Changing to weekly weigh-ins is working for me. Not just because I am showing a loss. When I was doing daily weigh-ins, I was letting that scale number define the rest of my day. If no loss, I would begin my day in a less than enthusiastic mood which is not the way to begin a brand new day. On the other hand, if my weekly weigh-ins show no loss it fills me with new resolve to work harder!

I missed 3 days of workouts due to my illness and I can honestly say I missed going! I actually missed my daily dose of endorphins. My food is staying down, my stomach has settled and I still feel full about 4 hours after I eat 1/2 cup of food. I am one pound away from 30lb loss and my Valentines Day goal. I am into my 4th week of my 12 week Challenge to lose 1/2 my weight before my Hawaii trip.

Today is a huge challenge for me. I am full of excitement over our Saints Championship Game tonight.


P.S. take a look at this article about a fellow bander "kamala", notice he points out that it wasn't a magic fix. Read the comments below the article, he did get alot of bad ones regarding the band. Most people are very clueless about the band.


  1. Thank you, I was so discouraged when I hit that plateau for a whole month! This last fill has really made a huge difference. I hope it stays for a bit.

  2. We are cheering for the saints as well! I hope they get to the superbowl! Congrats on the movement! Have fun today!
