There's a First Time For Everything!

I sang.


It happened.

In a public place.

AND there was no  alcohol  liquid courage involved.

Let's be crystal clear here: I CANNOT sing.  Seriously.

But up on stage I went and then more friends joined in.  

Would I have done this when I was a fatty?  Probably not.

Happy faces to protect the innocent.


  1. Karaoke is my favorite! Just to let you know, I have been spending days reading your blogs, researching if the band is the right choice for me, and you have been very informational, real, and encouraging. My biggest fear is that I would be the one that the band does not work on, but I have come to learn through you, that I can use this tool, and MAKE it work for me with hard work. Thank you for keeping up on your blog,and writing about the things that no one tells you about.

    1. Thanks! I'm happy that you find my blog useful. The choice to get a band is HUGE. Please make sure that you are 110% ready for a change that will come from YOU (not the band).

      PS:I love your screen name by the way. I'm a cruiser too.

  2. Congrats on your weight loss! And thanks from the bottom of my heart for inviting on your journey! I loved ready every article, even though I was getting paid to "work"... I just wanted to say thank you. I'm in the beginning stages of this process, and I'm noting everything about my experience on this journey. You've inspired me to blog about it! It's new, but you're welcome to join. I need all the encouragement that I can get! My blog is titled "Lap BandWagon" hope u find me!

    1. Hi Serenity! Thank you for your comment. I just visited your blog. Very cool!! :)

  3. Thanks for your note on my blog. You are an inspiration and I want to 'grow up' and be like you.
    Definitely admire your consistency and am trying to take a page from it. My theme in life and weight management has always been: Fall 7 times, stand up 8. So here I go...

    1. I Know that you can do it V! Keep on blogging :)

  4. Congrats! I am such a bad singer. So bad that I will tell someone, and they will say, "Oh, I bet you aren't." I then sing, and they go, "Yeah... you are a bad a singer." LOL

    But I love karaoke!

  5. I love to sing, and I bet you were GREAT!!
