First time on an airplane since surgery

All I can say is.... "I LOVE BEING THINNER". WOW! What a difference it makes in almost all aspects of my life.

I just got back from a weekend getaway with my hubby. I haven't been on a flight since I traveled for my surgery. (over a year ago)

I have to be honest and say that I was hoping there would have been a little more room in my seat then there was. I fit, YES!, with the arm rest down!!There just wasn't a whole lot of extra room. It was a reminder to me that I am only at the beginning of where I actually want to be.

I didn't have to ask for a seat belt expander. I didn't have to beg my seat neighbor to leave the arm rests up. I didn't have to worry about my thigh pressing the seat recliner button on the arm rest and then having to use my stomach muscles to keep my chair up right while the plane lifted off. (true story)

It was beautiful.

It was amazing.

Life is good.

But I still want to lose more... so my seat has even more room next time. : )

Under 200lbs... WOW!!!

A huge day for me! I am hoping that this picture comes thru my phone to the blog.
I am on vacation with my hubby for his high school reunion. (Tulsa, OK) Maybe reaching "onederland" is fitting for this week because I haven't weighed under 200 lbs since I was in high school. I don't know where my Lap-band journey will take my weight to.... but I like the direction. lol.
Happy onederland to me!
