Tomorrow~ 3 month Bandiversary

"There is no one giant step that does it. It's a lot of little steps."
~Peter A. Cohen

Although I feel like I took a big giant step to be banded what I have learned is..... its all the little baby steps that have really made the difference. Ask me 3 months ago if I thought I would be able to lose 50 pounds, I would have replied heck no! Ask me if I would be exercising on a regular basis...HELL to the NO! Or any of the life changing things I have experienced in the last 3 months? Truth is I didn't have one ounce of confidence in my self to make these changes on my own. I had failed so many times before with  just dieting, I thought it was a lost cause. Being Banded is not an easy thing, you have to make choices everyday on how you want to live with your band. Some days are easier than others. One thing I can say is I do not regret my choice to have the surgery. Sure I am excited about how my physical appearance is changing but more than that I feel like I am getting "THE REAL KELLI" back. The one with personality, humor and a caring attitude. I guess I didn't realize how much my weight was weighing me down so to speak.  I am glad I found this blogging community and all the love and support that is given here. I still have a long way to go but if I just keep taking little steps I know I will get there!
