LilySlim Weight loss tickers

LilySlim Weight loss tickers

Wednesday, December 29, 2010

The First Post it is.  My first blog.  Why start this blog?  Well, back in August I started considering having weight loss surgery, specifically lap band surgery.  My first thought was to research it on the internet - I couldn't believe how many blogs I found on the subject and how helpful they were!  Now, here it is the 29th of December and I am 11 days away from having the actual surgery!  I am very excited to get this weight off once and for all.  I don't think I have ever in my life been so determined about something.  Failure is definitely NOT an option. 

While this blog will mainly be about my weight loss journey, it will also have other topics, because, let's be honest, it could get rather boring just giving weight updates.  I love to talk about my dog, trashy reality TV, sports, and pop culture.

So I hope you follow me or check back often.  I will uploading pre-op photos soon!  Also please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding post-op lab band surgery process!

  1. Mandy,

    I'm a beginner blogger so forgive me if I'm doing this wrong.

    I just wanted you to know how much I support you in this decision. It takes so much courage to make big life changes. I have struggled with weight issues for a long time and have become the queen of the one day diets. I usually make it till around noon then I give up. This week I'm on diet pills. Sounds good at this moment (at 11:29 a.m.). Hopefully I'll make it past noon on this diet of the day. I know your blog will encourage me to work harder on my diet as I watch your progress.

    I'm behind you 100%. On the really hard days, type it out on your blog and know that your words will make a difference to me.

    Your Friend,

    PS-I love trashy reality TV shows too!
