Weigh-in Day & What Will I Do For My Four Year Bandiversary?

Goal weight: 145 lbs

Today's weight: 142.0 lbs

Still.  Below. Goal.

In exactly 23 days, it will be October 20th.

On October 20th, 2009, I had my Lap-Band surgery.

It's theeee official "bandiversary" -- as us bandsters like to call it.

And I have some seriously EPIC plans for this bandiversary.

I will be doing something that I don't think that I would have tried to achieve or complete when I weighed 258 lbs.

It's something that involves some serious fitness.

And there will be lots of climbing.



...lots and lots and lots of climbing involved.

Hopefully there will be lots of amazing photos to share with you too.

Stay tuned for my upcoming post on October 20th where I will post a photo of me showing you what I did to celebrate my Bandiversary!


  1. Wow, congrats on your upcoming four year bandiversary!

    Just wanted to thank you again for sharing your story with us all. It has been so motivational and insightful for someone like me, who was just thinking about getting banded. (I started stalking your blog about four months ago)

    Anyway, I was just banded last Wednesday, and am so excited to begin my new journey. I have to say, if it wasn't for your blog, I probably would've never gone through with it!

    Thank you Lap Band Gal :)

  2. Rock climbing??? Scaling a big big wall??? Give us a hint please :)

  3. I am getting banded exactly 3 weeks from today! I am so excited! I found your blog by searching for lap band blogs. Excited to read more posts!
