it was... but then she called back an hour after I got home and gave me a date of 4/21 instead!!

woooo!! i have a date i have a daaaaaaaaaaaaaate! a date a little day in history of dates..

a band date..

not a band-aid..

not a blind date..

a band date!

six months since starting this whole crazy adventure.. and one month shy of two years that this little idea of getting this done was in my mind..

thanks for following along peeps..more thoughts on this later.. i'm now off to enjoy the sunshine and get a little vitamin d ..



  1. Happy Dance! Happy Dance! So happy for you.

  2. Congratulations on getting your date moved up. That's awesome. Heck, even having a date is awesome. And insurance approval!

    I found your blog awhile back but wanted to read it all, start-to-now, before I started actively following. I just read it and so will be following you actively now.

    I think we started the whole process around about the same time - as far as insurance requirements. I finished my insurance requirements (also 6 months) on Mar 4 and am still waiting on word from my insurance co. I hope I'm not too far behind you. Would love to have a band-twin!

    Congrats on the date and the weightloss you've already achieved. Your approach to this process is awesome!

  3. YEAH!!! This is awesome news!! Just a little more than 2wks!!!

  4. Yea for a date! It makes it seem so real now - right?
