Bandster Quiz

1. How long have you been banded? 8 months, 1 week, 5 days.
2. What was your highest pre-band weight? / Current weight now? / Total lost to date? 270/196/74
3. What is your best "go-to" food to get in your protein? crabcakes, hummus, egg whites.
4. What is your favorite protein brand/shake? I despise protein shakes, never touch em.
5. What food do you miss the most now being post-band? Fresh chewy Montreal bagels, burgers with buns.
6. What is your favorite "mushy" food? Soft boiled/poached eggs, matzo ball soup.
7. What was your worst PB experience? PB-ing all over myself in the car in rushhour traffic on my way to meet a friend - without being sure I had something else to wear. Luckily I am so messy and constantly have clothes sitting in my car!
8. What has been the hardest part of this journey so far for you? Being patient with my sometimes slower losses, learning not to give up when the going gets tough.
9. What is your best NSV to date? Buying jeans from companies like Hudson, Joe's and Citizens of Humanity was really exciting.  Also the attention I'm getting from guys is amazing.
10. What is your top non-weight goal for your band? (top NSV maybe?) To wear a bikini! This won't happen till after the Tummy Tuck I'm sure.
11. What is your goal weight or size? My current goal is 170, that's what I'm hoping to get to before having a tummy tuck... I'd love to ulimately get under 160, and be a size 8.  I would have originally said 10, but I'm pretty much a 12 in a lot of things right now... woah! so 8, but 10 if it's tight in the boobies haha.
12. What band "rule" do you live by (i.e. don't cheat on)? Exercise at least 1hour/day, no pasta or rice.
13. What band "rule" do you not follow as much or aren't so good at? I drink soda. And alcohol. Oops!
14. What is your goal "reward"? Tummy tuck at 170... And maybe a trip? Hmm. Some bling for sure.
15. In the spirit of Thanksgiving being right around the corner (US), what are you most thankful for, post-band? I'm just so grateful to have found something that helped me find the strength within myself to lose this weight, and to have such an amazing warm and spirited community of bandsters to learn from and teach. Love you all!

Hey Angie- that was awesome!!!

I have a bit of a personal request. Would you mind blogging about how things have changed with the opposite sex?

You don't have to go into detail or tell us all the juicy bits (but if you want to I'll def read 'em!!!).

But I am curious to know at what weight did men start noticing you differently, how does it feel for you to have more/different kinds of male attention, did it feel comfortable right away or did you need to ease yourself into it, how does that impact your confidence in other areas, anything else you can think of.

I'm married but I have been heavy all my adult life and I am wondering how/when other men will start noticing me (assuming they do!) and what that's like.

LOL- I totally want to fit into the cool brands for jeans, too!!! I would also like to be one of those skinny bitches who can wear stovepipe jeans with a knee high boot and not look like I'm about to go out and hunt me a buffalo!!!
