Four Thanksgivings With a Lap-Band

Let's travel back in time and visit each Thanksgiving since I was banded in October 2009, shall we?

Here I am at approximately 5 weeks post-op at Walt Disney World in Florida. I remember being SO SUPER careful about my food choices and chewing. I wish I was still that careful - but I'm not.
Thanksgiving 2009
~ 225 lbs

Here I am in 2010 - serving pie.  Yep, that's my plate sitting there front and center.  A BIG ol' slice. Yum.

Thanksgiving 2010
~ 150 lbs
Here's last year's Thanksgiving - I pretty much went from Jazzercise that morning to throwing on my apron and cooking up a storm.
Thanksgiving 2011
~ 140 lbs
I am thankful for my Lap-Band.

Happy Thanksgiving!
