  1. EEEK! I just saw the Thanksgiving photo!!! YOU LOOK AMAZING!!!! And I am in love with that cute jacket!

    1. Thank you! I love it too. It caught my eye because it has a little bit of a Chanel vibe. It's fun to be able to wear things you actually WANT to wear. Not just what you CAN wear. And I know it's gonna get better and better. :)

    2. Just joined this site today- got info from Wellborn Clinic.i had surgery 9/26/13 for my 57 th b-day. You look great! I also love the jacket! What are you do to lose so quickly?

    3. Yay!! I'm so glad you found me! Isn't Dr. Wellborn the best? Do you ever go to support group?

      Well...I decided that I would put my Type A personality to good use and just follow every rule to the letter. I'm pretty rigorous about recording/measuring everything I eat, counting calories, etc. I also work out about 3 or 4 times a week. Luckily I love to cook, so that helps too.

      Congrats to you for taking charge of your health!

  2. Hi!

    I saw your blog and was hoping I could ask you a couple of questions.

    I'm going to be having the surgery soon, and was wondering what your recovery was like? How long before you went back to work? Pain? Have you flown with the band?

    Thank you so much for your time. I'm very anxious and would love to hear from someone who has done the surgery.



  3. Hi Meg! I'm so glad you found my blog! Why don't you drop me a line at and then I can reply back with answers to all of your questions. I'm so excited for your upcoming journey! I feel like it's one of the best decisions I've ever made. Looking forward to talking to you soon. :)

  4. Ahhhh that shirt in the pic from March! It's from the Limited right?? I LOVE it, I saw it in the store and wanted it but they were out of everything except size S (or as I usually call it, size Skinny B*tch)
