My Banded Time

Out of the Mouth of Babes

Yesterday my 8 year old son said, "MOM, I can see your waist!!  Good job!"  And he's right...before surgery I basically had a fat tube similar to the Goodyear Blimp Character.  Regularly my XL shirt would ride up and you could see my skin and I really blamed in on the cut of the shirts...Now my smaller shirts stay down and there is more definition in my waist and I don't show skin...sometimes I just see the remaining fat on my body versus realizing that I've come a long way.

I'm lucky because I have the band and I have a lot of family support...husband, 10 year old son, 8 year old son...Everyday they make this fight against obesity totally worth it.   I want to be healthy and highly functioning for them.


  1. Yay! Great NSV that your 8 year old brought to your attention!

  2. *HUGS!!* Great NSV! My boys told me I had a big butt like a month before my surgery. Knew I was making the right decision. Then yesterday they told me I was pretty. :D

    I love children. LOL

  3. That's great-- when kids notice, then it's really noticeable :)
