I hit the old "double nickel" mark today! I have lost 55 pounds since I started my lap band journey last year. So on my curvy, winding road to health and happiness I have gone from 303 last June, 277 at surgery in December and my current 248 today. That means I have lost a little over 18 percent of my body weight. Yippee! I still have so much work to do, but at least I feel like I am headed in the right direction. Gotta keep celebrating the milestones.
