30 DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOOOO HOOOOO...... 30 lbs down, I feel great and am so proud I made the leap to get banded. 30 is the most I have ever lost and I can't wait to make it a bigger number.

I went to the gym today and took water arobics for the first time. I asked the instructor if it was ok that I was in her class, she said why wouldn't it be, I said the front desk told me this class was for older people. Well she was pissed and said know wonder no one takes her class, and then followed it up with a " Well I'll show them" Well, she showed me alright, she worked my pants off.... literally.... my butt was hangin out for all to see on several occasion's. I am now typing with jello arms, and loving it. I can't wait to go back on Friday. Oh, and I did go to Target on my way home and bought some smaller board shorts so my butt can stay in them next time ;-) I also just bought two new work out swimsuits on line so my boobs can stay in place too.

Last but not least, my hubby will be getting banded tomorrow. We have to be at the hospital at 5:45 am. I am super excited for him to start his journey. I love you babe and can't wait for you to join me in the land of  the banded.

Hope you all have a great rest of your day!
