Hello Strangers

Hi all!
I know I said I was going away forever but some pretty exciting stuff has been going on in my life and I wanted to put it all in writing and out there to help other people.

"Why did you try to leave us!?!"
Well names out of it...I had a person harassing me. Long story short this individual got denied by insurance and was taking it out on me. This person felt I didn't deserve my band and wasn't using it properly and that by my 1 year mark I should have been down to goal. So I blocked them and left blogger.  Not a good excuse I know but it gave me time to live without blogging and I do miss it and all of you that come with this package deal!

So lets get you all up to speed:
  • In May I achieved my Associates degree in general studies
  • In May we moved from Illinois to southern California.
  • I started working on Marine Corp Base Camp Pendleton (our current duty station)
  • In July I hit my 100lbs down milestone

  • In July I also celebrated my 26th birthday!
  • Also the biggest news of the year and the reason I feel I need to share my story more now then ever is...I am pregnant!

So that should catch you all up :)
Since this post is a lot all at once I will put follow up post about what being pregnant with a band has been like. The good, the bad and the ugly!

I also understand that BOOBs is coming up just right around the corner and I am sad that I am not going to be able to go this year :(
