The Bandster Quiz

I've seen this on a few blogs and thought it was neat. I like those "getting to know you" things. So here's my bandster quiz....

Bandster Quiz

1. How long have you been banded? 8 months, 1 week

2. What was your highest pre-band weight? / Current weight now? / Total lost to date? 247/199/120

3. What is your best "go-to" food to get in your protein? fish

4. What is your favorite protein brand/shake? I really don't like them, if I didn't have another one before I died, I'd leave this Earth happy....however, the dark chocolate Atkins are good. As well as any kind of whey protein from GNC.

5. What food do you miss the most now being post-band? pizza....I'm a no bread bandster cuz anything that even resembles bread gets stuck, so I miss pizza.

6. What is your favorite "mushy" food? cheesy broccoli soup mixed with mashed potatoes. I also put a little bit of unflavored protein powder on mine as well.

7. What was your worst PB experience? Doughnuts....that's how I originally found out I couln't eat any type of bread.

8. What has been the hardest part of this journey so far for you? Going through with it even though my hubby didn't support it.

9. What is your best NSV to date? Getting into a pair of jeans that hasn't fit me in over eight years. The only reason I kept them was because they cost me so damn much money and I wanted to fit into them again; and being able to polish my own toenails.

10. What is your top non-weight goal for your band? (top NSV maybe?) To be healthy so I could have a baby.....my goals have since changed, don't know if I want kids, but that was the reason I decided to get banded.

11. What is your goal weight or size? either an 8 or a 10, don't know yet.

12. What band "rule" do you live by (i.e. don't cheat on)? Protein first

13. What band "rule" do you not follow as much or aren't so good at? I drink energy drinks. Usually sugar free red bull. It's lightly carbonated, not like soday. Still cheaching though.

14. What is your goal "reward"? Being able to wear a swimsuit if I want to. I haven't worn one in over ten years.

15. What are you most thankful for, post-band? That I'm noticing myself getting healthier as I lose more weight.

Yeah. It's getting better now that he sees the changes it's made in me and how much healthier I'm getting. It was a hard go of it though. Originally he told me that he wasn't even coming to the surgery, he came around though. Has been better since then.
