Fat Tuesday Weigh in and Fill #4


I'm out of the 20's!

Yippeee!  Yahoo!  Wahooo!  Yowza!  I'm throwing myself a little party here.  I'm so thrilled I can hardly stand it. 

April 24, 2013 - Start 264.4
Last weigh-in: 221.2
This week 218.2

Remember I've been depressed and complaining about being stuck...well, I finally busted through that and I'm hoping to continue to see a downward trend. 

I have to say that I'm owing this largely in part to continuing to exercise.  I didn't slack off even though I felt like nothing I was doing was making any difference.  So if you are frustrated KEEP EXERCISING!

I also should probably credit my last fill for at least one of these pounds. 

Which, by the way...I'm finally...FINALLY feeling like I'm thinking I should be feeling with true restriction.  I've got 6cc's in the band now and the thought of trying to eat a piece of bread is a big no way for me.  At this point with other fills I could still stomach a lovely piece of pizza if i wanted. 

Could I finally have hit my "sweet spot???"  I would love that.  LOVE.  Its so motivating to finally see some progress.

Did I mention that the doc said, "Woah...you look great."  when he saw me last?  He said the numbers might not be going down, but my body is toning and there is a definite difference.  Yayayaya!  So...I took a picture of myself just to compare....

I LOVE MY LAPBAND!!!!!

About 11 months ago...check me out...YIKES! I'm in the middle of my pregnant sister and nephew...


11 months later...face is SO MUCH THINNER.  This was a no shower day so no judging the hair.  Besides...remember my thing about posting unflattering photos?  Yeah...it can only get better from here.  ha ha ha.


And I'm wearing the same shirt you see in the first photo.  I had my daughter stand on a chair and take this for me this morning.  ha ha ha.  Sorry about the kitchen/playroom background, but oh well...the point is the DIFFERENCE.  Even I can see that. 

PS...those are my size 14 pants I just bought.  EEEEEEEK!

  1. great job on the loss! I've got 6cc in my band, too, and i'm just now to the point that bread is a bad idea. like you, i could eat pizza before--now i'm afraid to even TRY it. I made homemade biscuits last night for the ELB--and i took one of those littel funky end pieces (we call them the 'ugly' biscuits) and slathered it with smart balance--and i got stuck on the first bite! maybe i'll start seeing some movement on the scale now, too. I'm ready for it to start moving--but i need to step up my exercise. Sharing a car makes it hard to join a gym since I can't have a dedicated workout schedule.

    You are doing awesome--such an inspiration!

    1. Well, my bread issue continues...thay may mean GREEN ZONE for real! Woot! if you can't do a gym do you have fun exercise videos? I love any of the dancing ones....don't think if you don't sweat buckets you aren't doing enough...do what you can while you can...and if that means marching in place while watching your tv show it counts!!!
