My 5th Thanksgiving With My Lap-Band

My usual tradition on Thanksgiving is to wear the tightest pants I own.

This helps me not overeat.


But it works.

Like a charm.

And it worked this year too.


I was able to enjoy tastes and sensible portions of all the foods that I love, but without over-doing it.

But I did have TWO and a HALF pieces of pie.

'Cuz that's how I roll.

If you would like to read all of my past Thanksgiving blog posts, go read THIS.

Here's the 411 on my weight: in case you missed today's weigh-in on Facebook, I weighed-in at 141.0 lbs this morning.

That's right!





Weight (145 lbs)

In other fun news, the boyfriend treated me to a fun date night in San Francisco the night before the Thanksgiving. He took me to see the musical, "The Book of Mormon."

Completely hilarious!

Here we are getting ready to see the show:

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!


  1. Amazing! I have to say my first Thanksgiving went pretty well. I was able to try everything, but not too much of it. First Thanksgiving ever to pass up dessert though! I more than made up for it with the sweet potato casserole however. :)

    I am dying to see Book of Mormon. :)

    1. That's AWESOME Julie! :) Well done on the portion control.

  2. Good job for a long time now. :) I also use the pants that REALLY fit trick on holidays. It works like a charm.

  3. It's my second Thanksgiving with Lap Band and I'm pleased to say that for the second year in a row, I lost weight over the holiday! Now, I realize 0.2 pounds is minor, but I'm going to count it as a loss is a loss, which is always a win!

  4. Nice post. Miami Lap Band is really effect full for all. Thanks for sharing your experience. Wish you happy and enjoyable life.
