My Supported BOOBS

Posted by Sherry , Monday, September 27, 2010 Monday, September 27, 2010

Well! Back from a very BOOBY weekend and feeling more supported than ever! Get it?

Seriously though, the 1st annual gathering of banded bloggers was a raging success. Kudos to all those who planned, stressed and organized to make the weekend such a great one.

Before I relay some my weekend highlights, I will of course answer your most pressing question: What does Amy W. wear to bed?

Answer?: A full coverage burka. Seriously. The woman may as well be a NUN as conservative as she is. I never even got a GLIMPSE of the breasticles.

I should have roomed with Gen, who, I discovered, asks her roomies to get in the shower with her.

She “claims” she needed bathing assistance due to the broken elbow she suffered during our first night of vodka induced debauchery but I think that was all a ploy to try to get her roomate Jennifer in the shower with her. You decide.

With each person I encountered, my appreciation for my Lap-Band grew. Women who claim on their blogs to be shy or wallflowers became animated the minute you asked them how much weight they've lost.

Those who have reached 'goal' were open and generous with their tips, stories and praise for the rest of us.

Those who were brand new to banded-life reminded us of the importance of appreciating the journey.

While I didn't have the opportunity to accost celebrities like Gilly did or find new boots like Angie did, I did find in Chicago exactly what I expected to find: A great group of women who put the “awe” in “awesome”.

p.s. a giant 'thanks' to my roomies (Alexis & Amy) who put up with my very 'over-served' self on Saturday afternoon!

This weekend was awesome, for the short time I was there. It was awesome that you sat at our table & I was able to chat with you a bit... It was so hard to connect with everyone with all those fabulous women there... simply overwhelming!
Hope to see you again at BOOBs 2011!
