3 Years...

Today is a somewhat of a bitter sweet day for me. Today would have been my 3 year surgiversary with my lap-band. 3 YEARS.... So much time I wasted... Waiting for my band to work, waiting for my body to work... just waiting.

So instead of sitting here feeling sorry for myself... today will have to be more sweet than bitter! Let me tell you what has changed in 3 years...
