thanks, Shannon!

Blog Award time!
Thanks, Shannon!

Here's the copy and paste:
List 5 goals that you have/had while on your lap band journey. 
Comment on each blog you nominate and list your top 3 nominees for the award. 

And here are 5 of my goals:

1. Remain sane 

2. Remain nice

1a. 2a. By that I mean not kill myself  or anyone else!
So far, so good on that one!

3. I never set a goal weight, or had a starting weight.
My goal was just to "do" LoCarb and see where it took me.

3a. I didn't really have a procedure... Just LoCarb!

4. Get in better shape - for a woman "my age!"

5. I am approaching the 2 year mark on 
my weight-loss journey! I reached my weight loss "goal"
in May 2010, of 138 pounds. (Army weight)
And hovered in and around that 140 range ever since.
Now my goal is to lose "that final 10 pounds."
And to continue to lose here and there,
and firm and tone my body. 
All in the name of health.

And continue to incorporate healthy LoCarb eating
and an Active Lifestyle - every day!

No numbers, no time goals....
Pretty general, actually.
But effective. At least for me!

Do you want to know something?
I don't do so good with blog awards.
Here's why!
 I want to nominate everyone!

There is no way I can pick just 3 good bloggers.
But, Shannon, I will try!

See, I told you I was bad at this sort of thing!
These people are some of the original group,
from like 20 months ago....
 I talk to these bloggers more than 
I talk to "real" people.
Cuz you are real to me..... all of you.....
There are so many people I think about 
during the day, and cherish with all my heart.

And there are so many many more!
Thanks for all the Love and support 
you have shown me over the past months...
I means the world to me.
And I would not have been 
"OK" without you - bloggers here to save me
from rancidly destroying myself -
Many many of you checked on me every day
through what was (without a doubt) one of 
most difficult and darkest time of my life. But also the most fun
I have ever had. Ever! Fun and laughs, and quintessential
puppies and kitties. Still waiting for the unicorns to show.

Thanks for your comments, calls, emails and even visits!
Through "thick" and "thin!"
