Four Months.......

and one week ago I had the day that changed my life....for the better.  I had my new best friend placed inside me to help me straighten out my life and live again.  March 31, 2011 I had lap band surgery.  Gerty was placed and then after some tests I went home.  I haven't regretted a second of it.  I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Ok numbers
Start weight 280
Start clear liquid diet 3-21
Surgery date 3-31 weight is 265
4-20 weight 255
5-12 wt 245
6-22 wt 234
7-28 wt 228

So those numbers mean I hit the big 50lbs down and man I am happy about that. 

This is the charm from James Avery that I bought at my 3 month bandiversry and 50lb loss which is halfway to my main long term goal.

Lately I have been ask about my surgery and should they get surgery.  Well I of course never tell anyone that they should or shouldn't have surgery, but I do share with them why I chose surgery and what I have experienced since surgery.  I let them know that making this choice takes lots of research and big life changes and not just a diet. 

New Product......
