Do you know why our blog community if fabulous? I am sure you do, but let me count the ways.
In this lapband blogland of ours you can find:
The young, the "more seasoned", and every age in between.
Baby bandsters, experienced bandsters, those who chose gastric bypass, or those who just want to lose some weight.
The loud outgoing bandsters (are you pointing your finger at me?), the more reserved, the shy, the ones who want to be naked publicly.
The humble, the proud, the lost.
Teachers, writers, mothers, students, nurses, lawyers, somebodies.
The rich, the "money challenged".
Those from the land of education and those from the school of hardknocks.
Forever fatties (not after the band) and fresh fatties.
Those of us who started at higher weights, and those of us who did not.
Girls and (well mostly girls) and at least one male blogger.
Bloggers from every religion and race.
Bloggers from America, Australia, Dubai, and Paris.
Pear shaped, hour glass shaped, and just out of shape.
Those who love people of the same sex, opposite sex, or just love sex period.
We are a melting pot of personalities and life experiences. We are pretty amazing. And we are growing, even while are waist size is shrinking.
Pat yourselves on the back blog buddies. Because sometimes you make a difference in the lives of complete strangers. And sometimes those complete strangers become some of you closest friends.
Hugs and Happy Thursday!
