Landmark Day!

I was emptying the dishwasher today and found I had reached a new landmark. When I bend over I usually huff and puff as my (excess) stomach impinges my diaphragm and I can't breathe easily. Today, however, NO HUFFING OR PUFFING!

Next stop: No groaning as I bend!


  1. Hooray for no huffing and puffing! I think one of the first things I noticed in the first week or so post banding was that I was able to navigate the stairs in my house like a normal person. Going up was always easier, coming down really was starting to hurt my knees and I would take one stair both feet.. step,stop, step,stop. I felt handicapped and it really bothered me. Now I jog up and down the stairs easily and without being short of breath either way! Congrats!

  2. We are all proud of you MP!
