One Month Bandiversary

Happy One Month Bandiversary to me!  I can't believe that it has already been a month!  And that I have lost 26 pounds!  The last time I did a 12 week session of Weight Watchers I only lost half that much.  I really heart my band!

I've been getting a lot of questions regarding my blog's name, so I figured I would explain why I chose it here:

I wanted something with "Band" in the title and with so many awesome bloggers out there already, a lot of good titles were taken!  I was at a Christmas party and we were talking about the Beatles and I happened to mention that I liked Wings more than the Beatles (I know, BLASPHEMY!), and then someone started singing Band On The Run and I thought *perfect!*.  Plus Paul McCartney's solo stint in Wings is way better than John Lennon's solo work.  I mean, let's compare: 

Lennon - "Imagine there's no heaven" - ummm, no thanks. 
McCartney - "Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs, what's wrong with that?" - nothing Sir Paul, it is certainly more optimistic than Lennon.  And let's face it, in this world has anyone ever really tried to give peace a chance??  No.  But there are tons of silly loves songs on the radio at any given moment.

*stepping down from soap box*

And just for fun here is a one month progress pic (no one was there to tell me to smile):
