My Banded Time

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

Is it really me? No, its the new healthier me! Life style changes for the better

On Friday, I took the boys to the gym and weight lifted while I waited for them to finish their swim classes (the old me would have read my nook or sat on the bleachers)


I drank a bottle of water after lifting (the old me would drink a diet soda or two)

I was waiting with my back turned and my son said, "Mom, your work is paying off.  You look nice! I didn't recognize from the back" (in first grade, my 6 year old son said he was a little embarrassed that I was a fat mom-I live in a neighborhood filled with fit/beautiful/gorgeous women)

It's the little things that are bringing me better health...and the band was a wonderful catalyst.

I've been busy but it feels good to get back to the blogger world...I see a lot of fine accomplisments and progress and they are inspiring to me.  Thanks for blogging and commenting.

  2. Love it! My mom "lost" me @ the market the other day because she didn't recognize me from behind. It's a great feeling! (and, your son sounds sweet).

  4. One of my big fears is my son's friends will tell him he has a fat mommy! It got to the point I was afraid to volunteer at the school. So on Pumkin Day in October - before I decided on surgery - I was assigned to the "weighing station" where each kid had to determine how much things weighed. I thought - how ironic! One little girl asked if I had a baby in my belly. Hopefully soon I won't have any of these fears.
