  1. Hey Amy I love your blog. I am getting my band next week and soaking up all the info and encouragement I can find! I am a similar body shape as you, so its great to see how well you have done. You look awesome!

    I just started a blog, thanks to you and others for the inspiration.

  2. LOL I had read this - or some variation of it - a couple of months ago. Loved it then... loved it now. And all of it true. Would we change to a man though? Now there's the prickly question.

  3. Coloradomom! Hi! I clicked on your name and it takes me to your profile but I cant find a link to your blog! Can you cut and paste it here for me?

  4. Hey your blog is just great! very honest! I Love reading your updates. It truely inspires my journey! Thank-you!

    Thanks again

    Allie <3

  5. Hey girl! My Kristen :) I am new to blogger and I totally love reading your blog! Your too cute! I am starting my weight loss journey and meet with my surgeon next week to set up a surgery date for the band and I LOVE following everyones blogs! I appreciate how candid everyone is. But I just started my own blog like 2 days ago and I would love some followers and people to ask questions to :) I cant wait to start this journey! You look great by the way...congrats on all the success thus far!

  6. What jerks men are!

    I knew there was a reason I irrationally snapped at DH this morning, it's because he can eat chocolate and shoes don't mangle his feet, not because I have PMS.

  7. Amy- I have some Old Navy coupons and thought of you. They are yours if you want them. Just email your mailing address to me and I'll get them out tomorrow!

  8. Hey Ames
    I hope you get this at this late date: I might just put it on my blog so I def know you will read it... I did a ring around for you to about four pizza places here where I live and two in Perth and found.. its not egg (lol where did you get that from.. too funny) that is our fave pizza topping but.. prawns (shrimp where you come from!) bbq sauce and pineapple.. but not all together .. or at least for the shrimp and pineapple. Hope this helps. xxx
