Why Is Today Such A Big Day For Me?

In my mind, today is kinda a bigger deal than my actual surgery date.

What is today?

Exactly three years ago today on December 17, 2010:

I stepped on the scale and I had reached my goal weight of 145 lbs.

Finally!  After 14 months of lots of hard work.

You can read about that fateful day HERE.

It was an AWESOME-SAUCE of a day.

And then can you believe it? I maintained my goal weight for one whole year on December 17, 2011. Read that post HERE.

And THEN I maintained my goal weight for two whole years on December 17, 2012. Read that post HERE.

Now, I have achieved three whole years of maintaining my goal weight today on December 17, 2013.

Do I still have the fear that I will GAIN ALL 115+ lbs back?


Pretty much each and every day freakin' day.

That fear is still very present in my life.


How will I celebrate my GOALiversary this year?

I can tell you how I will NOT celebrate it.

I will not eat to celebrate.

Maybe I'll go buy myself a new fantastic skinny girl outfit.

Because let me tell ya...





  1. You totally deserve it. Look how far you've come. ;-)

  2. Yes you do.............


  3. that's so fantastic. I am really enjoying your blog and truly appreciate how active you are on it, especially after maintaining for so long. I will be banded in February 2014 and am thrilled and excited. You truly inspire me.

  4. That's so amazing to me. My biggest fear is that I'll never be able to maintain my weight, because I never have been able to before. I was always either losing or gaining at any given time.

    I also just want to say I love your blog. I just started mine, but I've been reading yours for like 6 months before I decided to join blogspot. :)

  5. i like your blog. and also like your image representation. and 258LBS to 140LBS unbelievable.
