March 31, 2011 was the day that changed my life forever.  I had Lap Band surgery a year ago yesterday.  This past year has been amazing!  I have found a girl I haven't seen in 20 years!  Oh how I have missed her.  

Many birthdays have come and gone but none so great as this year's.

My goal for one year was 100lbs down, but as the last three months I have yoyo'd up and down and didn't have it checked out I didn't make my 100lbs.  What I did make though thanks to a fill on Tuesday......

Thats right 98lbs!  I finally passed the 187 mark!  
So as far as the fill, it went fine for the first few hours anyway.  That afternoon I started PBing everything except my saliva.  I thought it was due to the swelling so I waited to see.  The next day, sips of water worked, however nothing else did. When I woke up on Thursday I went in and my surgeon took out half a cc and admitted to being somewhat aggressive with my fill.  At that point I had lost 8lbs since my fill on Tuesday morning.  Let me just say water never tasted so good.  I am doing fine now and still losing.

Numbers..... Starting weight 280, Heaviest weight 283, Todays weight 182.  I didn't do any measurements so none to report.  I started out in a 26/28 and today I had an American Eagle size 14 and size large shirt on.

And this would be my gift to celebrate my 100lb goal being met, but I am not there yet so it will have to be just a because gift to myself....I love it!
I do think that is all I have to report for now....Have a great week girls.

Oh wait I almost forgot....I am going to BOOBS this year and am on the list, but I would like to have a few roommates.  If anyone is interested just leave a comment and your email address so we can chat about it.  Cant wait....
