My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)


Following Me?

Hi to all of my new readers! I'm glad you stopped by, and I look forward to reading your blogs as well! If you're a current/new reader and aren't following me, please take a second to do so, that way I can read your blog and follow you as well.

Just my little re-introduction....
My name is Laurie, and I had RNY Gastric Bypass surgery on 10/15/07. That makes me almost 19 months out. I am almost at goal (within 10 pounds), and those 10 pounds are the hardest to get rid of ever! This blog is mostly my journal through life. It's not always about surgery or weight loss, but a good chunk of it is.. mainly because I obsess about things! LOL

Since losing 155 pounds, I have gained so much in the way of self esteem and self confidence. My main issues now are seeing the loss in the mirror, as I still have "fat girl mentality", and of course dealing with those last 10 pounds.

Well, that's it for now... I'm still at work! GRR!

Congratulations on the 155lbs, just incredible. I give you a lot of credit. I know how hard the last 10lbs must be, I know you can do it.
