A Confession & Friday Weigh-In

I have a confession.

For me, Facebook updates are easier and faster than blogging.

If I had more time in a day, I could spend lovely amounts of time sharing every little detail about my life with you here on the blog.

I don't have that time right now.

But I can do a quick photo or update on what's going on in my life on Facebook.

So if you're not on Facebook, you're missing out on some awesome-sauce updates from yours truly.

How about a before and "now" photo comparison? Yep, that was posted earlier today on FACEBOOK.

How about a quick report from me at the grocery store on my latest food find? Yep, that was posted yesterday on FACEBOOK.

How about my latest sweaty workout update? Yep, that was posted on Facebook too.

How about an update on what I ate at an Italian restaurant recently? Yep, that was posted on Facebook too.

Head on over to the Facebook page and "LIKE" the page. And, VOILA! Magic! Lap Band Gal updates will show up in your newsfeed.  You won't be sorry.  All the cool kids are doing it.  You don't want to be left out now, do you?

Now let's talk about today's weigh-in.

Goal Weight: 145 lbs

Today's Weight: 142.6 lbs

Still below goal!

 I will see you over on Facebook!


  1. I wanted to let you know that I just finished reading every post of your blog! Why, you ask, would anyone devote that much time? Well, because I find you inspiring. Even more so because I have a personality similar to yours. I got my band on December 18th, 2014 and there has been no looking back. I'm doing this thing right. I watch my calories. I exercise. I eat my protein and my veggies. Thank you so much for sticking with the blog even through maintenance. Because really, that's what I'm the most worried about. I know I can lose the weight. I've done it before. I just want to have a plan to keep it off. I will definitely follow you on fb. I haven't really been feeling the forums lately because it tends to be a lot of whining. I love your just do it attitude. Don't get derailed. Get back on track. I have been wanting to do the Zumba class offered at my gym and I have been intimidated even though I have pretty good stamina these days. You have inspired to me to push through my insecurity. I'm doing it tomorrow! Also, I started at 295 pounds (I'm 5'9"), I've already lost 55 pounds since December. I set my goal weight at 165 but I've been telling myself that if I only get down to a size 14 or 16, I'll be ok with it. No. I think after seeing your success, I feel that I can do better than that! I am going to be healthy and long and lean! Again, thank you so much for sharing your story for so long. See ya on fb! --Leigh Clark
