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!
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....
