Survey Says...

How did you pick your blog name?

Great question...
I have changed my blog name a few times, to adapt to my mindset.
its a woman's prerogative to change her mind.. right?
So my blog title is My Body, My Band, My Rant
Which means just about anything is up for discussion.
But probably mostly band rants.. does that make sense?

When did you start blogging?
I started in 2009 just before being banded

Did you go to BOOBs 2010?
Sure did, had a great time... that's why I am coming back for MORE MORE MORE..

When were you banded?
October 29th 2009, two days before Halloween, I was on the two week pre band fast and then after banding I couldn't eat, so I missed my usual 5lb Halloween candy weight gain.. YEAH I thought.. the band is working already!

How much have you lost?
Just about 85 lbs, I have about 20 more lbs to go.. I am in no rush...

What are you most looking forward to at BOOBs?
I want to personally thank everyone who supported me last year and this year.  The love and kind words of support was overwhelming at times.. who would ever have thought that a community of women would band so tightly and give so unselfishly of themselves... you will always have a place in my heart.

What/who do you hope to find/see/accomplish at BOOBs 2011?
To make our newcomers feel welcomed and to smother the BOOBS I group with hugs and kisses

Children? Pets?
I have two incredible daughters, whom I love and I know love me.  They are the apple of their fathers eye.
I also have two fur babies (yorkies) Chloe and Sophie and a pond full of koi fish

Who is your roomie?
Well, I am the luckiest girl in town.. I have Cindlew... she was my roomie last year and she is mine this year and the next and the next and the next.. She is wonderful and we are travelling together!!!

What day do you arrive?
Thursday .. a day earlier than last year when I almost had a stroke because our flights were CANCELLED last minute.. ugh.. I do not need that stress.
What events are you signed up for?

Whatever Cindylew is signed up for .. so am I.. although I don't think I am doing the 5K.. I will just slip into a spa somewhere and weal away the time..
hmm, I love to shop, and am into home decor.. I like going to spa's does that count as a hobby??
I am in regulatory compliance for pharmaceutical drug development (pre-market).
Single? Married? In a relationship?
wow, this one is tough to respond to.. I was married for almost 32 years to the most amazing man in the world, there will never be anyone like him, so I don't even bother to look for some one like him.. but there is someone I am seeing now and he is fun to be with. 

Your birthday month?
I am a January baby, a true Capricorn.. in every sense.
What do you want other BOOBs to know about you?
Well, let me see..
I am one of the oldest BOOBS, but have had some maintenance work so that I can stay as charming as you young whipper snappers.
I now have BQQBs.. so I fit in with the meeting theme
I am very social (Ask Joey, Sandy and Cindy)
I love to laugh and shop and shop and laugh.
I am looking forward to meeting all of you and giving lots of hugs!!!
