LilySlim - Weight loss

Thursday, July 1, 2010

Thank you Pearl!


My official weigh in was yesterday and I'm down 29 pounds. I'm really happy with the results. I also took my measurements last week and was shocked that I've lost 22 inches. I feel really good and feel like I have a real shot at losing all the weight I need to loose. I'm actually 53 pounds from my heaviest weight and that to me is amazing. The fact that I got the lap band before I had gained back all of the weight I had lost is amazing to me too. I find each day I'm a little more comfortable with the band. I'm a slow learner, but at least I'm learning. It's taken me a considerable amount of time to figure out the "user error" portion of this gizmo. I am 71 pounds from my goal weight, which sounds way better than 100 pounds from my goal. In October of last year, I made the decision to have WLS, I was at the end of my rope, I felt completely helpless, I was devastated that I had so little control over this area of my life. It's been a long haul, but I'm so glad that I got banded and so glad that I found this wonderful means of support. You guys are the best! Happy Friday Eve!
Big Hug!
