6/6/10 Intro. to the Book

Alright...listen up LBers (yes, you Sandy...she's always stirring things up LOL) because I'm Queen of Bandlandia (for a minute) and I've got something important to share today. I want you to know I'm still reading, even if I can't always comment and something came up in the blogs this week that I wanted to comment on.

I've had massive things going on since my big news on Thursday. I've actually started three different blogs; celebrating my entry into the Century Club, I took new 'After' pics (oh, and I updated my ticker and notice my new profile pic too...DD has been trying to get me to change the old one 'That's awful Mom!'), had a Party in My Fat Pants, and took some pics of what I bought to celebrate. I also decided that I'd take some time out to sit down and do the SOB questions as my thank-you for supporting me in getting to goal (I'll send it off to you soon Gen).

I thought I'd share it with you (to celebrate my 100 pounds ) as I think it sums up a lot of what you've all been talking about. I'll just leave it up this week, and please let me know what you honestly think or if you have suggestions.

I think this is excellent! I can't wait to read the book!

Love it!! Since you asked for suggestions here is one thing I noticed.

The sentence "What I want you to take from this book is learning about the choices you can make" caused me to re-read it a couple times. I know what you are trying to say, but the flow felt off a little. There might be a more powerful way to say this b/c I think it is really important.

I can't wait to read the book - and I have already started telling people about it :)

Sign me up for a copy too! And a huge congrats on the 100 lbs lost BG. I was absent for a few weeks and missed this! You are my hero for sure!

I think it sounds great but I would change from "New Banders" to just "Banders". I think all looking for this surgery before, new and veterans can all gain from it as a source of laughter and information. Good luck. Did you get lots of info about the "diet" controversy. Love the discussion. Helps us all figure this out.

can't wait to get my paws on a autographed copy of your book :)

Stephanie said...

Sounds great...Consider a copy of the final edition already sold!!

I like it so far! Great idea to write a book like this! I've only heard of 1 by an actual bandster.

Tina said...

As usual BG it is fantastic! I have already said that as soon as it is released I will be purchasing a copy. AND I will be heading south to find you for the autograph too!

Kristin said...

You're really a good writer, BG. Great intro.

Good for you. Before my surgery I read all the books out there for info. The best books, only 2 I found, were from people that had the surgery. And they really didn't go into as much detail as you seem to be going to go into.
I started a blog recently on my experiences and am looking for more followers. How did you get so many?
