This is me!

This pic was taken Memorial Day of 2009. I am probably at my heaviest here, save my pregnancy (which brought me in to the low 300's-seriously crazy!). While I am not proud of myself here, I do love that dress.
I love pictures....however they have to be of other people. In no way do I like pics of myself....I probably will do a before shot before Monday comes though. I don't have the fun pregnant pics with the beachball belly. When I was pregnant, I looked fat....plain and simple.....FAT!!!!
So this, luckily, isn't quite how big I am right now....and that dress is way too big! YAY!
Thanks for swinging by!


  1. It IS a good dress! Get it altered as you shrink :)

  2. You are not boring. You are here to share your story with the rest of us. Take pictures. Lots of them. You will be ever so thankful for them. Good luck on your surgery. Again, you will be ever so thankful.

  3. Hi DeeDee new follower her! I just got approved and am scheduled to be banded 8/9/10.


  4. Love the pic of your family! I'm so excited for your upcoming surgery! You have done so well prior to surgery you are going to great!

    I can't wait to follow you on your journey! The liquid diet pre and post op were the hardest for me. I just wanted to chew something soooooo bad! That stage does pass though. :)

    I remember reading thru blogs start to finish before I was banded to get a feel on what to expect.

    Happy Weekend!
    Banded: May 25, 2010
