Weekend Snapshot

Here's a quick photo from this weekend.
I'm so pale that I think that I'm becoming see-through. Spray tan needed! Stat!
Let's do an analysis, shall we?

Even though I've been at my current size (not shape, 'cause that's always changing), I still can't get over the fact that I fit into smaller sizes.  No more 24W for me!  Never in a million gajillion years when I started my journey with the Lap-Band, did I ever think that I would be wearing size 2 and X-Small.  I remember when I was pre-op and I mentioned to my friend Amy how I hoped that I would one day be a size 10/12.  Who woulda thunk it that I would have exceeded that dream?

Take a look in that red cup.  I was at a 'Kegger' party.  Everyone was drinking beer.  I was drinking water.  I am very lucky that for me, alcohol has never been a trigger for me and I will very rarely drink.  Maybe one cocktail every few weeks.  Now, if it was a 'cake' party, then I'd be sitting there with a big ol' piece of cake.  I guess we all have our triggers.

Lastly, I'm an official iPhone addict.  Admitting that I have a problem is the first step, right?  Almost all of my Facebook updates (what I'm eating, doing, exercising, wearing) are posted using my iPhone.  If you really want to know what I'm up to, check it out.  The latest FB update?  I'm going sky-diving!


  1. Bikini shots ? OOOOObaby...

  2. Hello, my name is Jennifer, I am a phone addict.

    BTW, cute pic...you look great in RED

  3. Red is your power color for SHO! : ) Look how amazing you look!! So very proud of you. I really need to start following you on FB, but I am so concerned about what I hide from my RL...perhaps I'll make a new Bandster FB account JUST for my weight loss community folks. : )

  4. You look great! Skydiving? You so crazy!

  5. Congratulations, I had a great weekend of being good with tons of Stimuli all around as well.

    As always you look amazing!


  6. I have to say, you just get prettier and prettier! I have always wanted to sky dive, can't wait to hear about it!!!

  7. Your the cutest thing! Thank you for the post today, you may have just calmed me down from my pre-surgery jitters. Your reality is my dream and I am so close I can taste it!

  8. Skydiving! You will have a blast!!!

  9. Wow! Love your outfit! Love that you are skydiving! Rock Star - and love the iphone - i just got one today - traded in the bberry...what a difference!

  10. Porcelain is the new tan. ;) that's what I tell my ghostly white self anyway.

  11. You look great, AS usual! and I agree with the other poster that said red is SO your color!!

  12. You look great!!!
    I feel like I could have written this post myself! Except that my cup would have some form of alcohol in it. Partaking is one of my pitfalls, but on the plus side it would have taken me 2 hours to sip on whatever was in that cup!

  13. You look so relaxed, beautiful and natural!

  14. I love this picture! I am a 22 - used to be a 24! I also will be happy to be a size 10/12! You give me hope and encouragement with one picture. I love your blog. Keep it up. I am going to listen to the podcast now.
