50!! I Did It!!!

I did it, I did it, I did it. Or should I say 'The band did it'?!? Or perhaps it was all those vibes the BOOBsters were sending out this weekend?! Well, whatever it was - I lost 50lbs! I am totally and utterly amazed. After a plateau lasting several weeks, the pounds have been dropping off on an almost-daily basis. We were away over the weekend, so I was without the scales for two whole days, but this morning when I hopped on, I was:

15st 2lb - 212bs - BMI 35.3
(a total loss so far of 50lbs; 46lbs to go!)
I'm so pleased! Can you tell?! 50lbs! They've gone. I don't know where they've gone, but it's a long way away and they won't be able to find their way back. I hope.
In other news, I owe Tina a big thank you for nominating me for the Cherry on Top Award. I'm honoured - merci very much!

The question that goes with this award is: If you had one chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?

Hmm, that's a hard one. What's the saying about never regretting anything you've done, only the things you haven't done?! The trouble with going back and changing just one thing, is the repercussions that that change can have on everything else - we've all seen Back to the Future; but I'm being a bit too literal here, this is only theoretical after all! I guess the change would have to be doing whatever needed to be done to not end up being nearly 100lbs overweight in the first place!

And now I need to nominate six bloggers for the award (although being so late with this one means most people have probably already received it!) I'm going to follow Tina's idea and nominate bloggers with less than 100 followers (like me) in the hope that it will send a few new readers their way - we all appreciate more followers, don't we?!

Frst up is Alison because she's a fellow Brit, and there aren't that many of us (of the banded variety, I mean!)

Julie, because she's struggling and needs our support (and she's a Euro-bandster!)

Sam, who is six months banded and has already lost over 60lbs!

Jennifer, because she makes me laugh.

Oh, darn it, I'm going to stop there because all the other bandsters I know of have more than 100 followers!


  1. wahhoooooo--those darned pounds took their time eh? I'm not sure if having them come off in spurts is good or bad..when it is good it is really really good but when they won't budge it agony.

    Congrats on finally getting them unstuck.

  2. Congrats on the 50lbs. That is a great achievement!!!!

    And thanks for the award :-)
