Blogging For Three Years

I started this blog exactly three years ago today.

I started this blog exactly nine days before my Lap-Band surgery.

793 blog posts so far.

I can't believe that there have actually been 793 things to tell you about.

I never would have imagined that this blog would one day become so much more than just a place to document one woman's weight loss journey.

Thank you for reading along with me on this journey.

And don't you worry, I'm not going anywhere.


  1. No, thank you! You have helped SOOOOOO many people it's ridiculous! Personally...YOU are the reason I have a blog....YOU are the reason I decided to be so open with my decsion on getting the lap-band. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart ;)

  2. So many quit blogging for various reasons....Thanks for sticking around!


  3. Congratulations and happy blogaversary! You have talked many of us off the ledge through your experiences. Hopefully, you have been able to take something away from ours as well. Keep up the great work. Settled into your new home? Hope all is well.

  4. Happy you are sticking around!!!

  5. Did you ever think your blog would influence and encourage so many people? Like many of your fans, I started a blog because you said so :)
    Thanks for everything!!!

  6. Thank you for taking us on your journey with you. Happy anniversary xx

  7. So happy you did start blogging...you totally inspired me!

  8. YOU are a big reason that I a) got the LapBand and b) am blogging about it. You are so inspirational, yet down-to-earth, funny, relatable. I also love your blog because you have so many pictures and I'm a very 'visual' learner (and, let's be honest, I'm just damn nosey!) So Happy Blog-aversary and THANK YOU for sharing a piece of your life with us.

  9. Thanks for blogging and all your kind words and support

  10. Congrats! I'm fairly new to your blog and the Band, but I've read many of your older posts. You're amazing!
