If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no use being a damn fool about it. W.C. Fields

Well, I was looking for a quote about success ....this one just made me laugh even if it's not QUITE what I was planning to put in my post.

As a "baby bandster" I am doing lots of thinking about where I am in my life and WHY NOW is the time to make me a priority.  I constantly over-think everything..... and thinking about how to use the band and weightloss in general, is no exception.  The one thing though that I have decided is that this time, I choose to be successful.  I have had surgery...I have paid $13,000 out of pocket.....I have made a life decision to get my eating under control........I have chosen to be successful because there is no other option.  It may take me a year to get to my goal...or it may take 2 years....but, as long as I am not gaining and am in charge of my eating, I will be a success.


  1. You have a great outlook. Failure is not an option here. We shelled out a ton of money and we ain't lookin' back! :) I want to follow your blog, but I can't find the little button to do it where it shows up on my recent post updates?

  2. i think you just go to my blog and click under the "followers" where it says Google Friends connect or something close to that. (It's like a blue rectangle.) I'm not sure if you use the "dashboard" by google if you can do it there too.

    p.s. I really enjoy reading your blog!
