I've Lost 90 Pounds!

Woo hoo! I did it, I saw 213 on the scale this morning. That means I get to mark another major milestone off my to do list. I Have officially lost 90 pounds total (64 since surgery). That is a crazy number to write here. Yippee for me! Next stop 100 pounds and onederland. I sure hope I don't have to fight so hard for these next 10 pounds--let's worry about that later, for today I am celebrating!

It is so awesome to keep marking off each accomplishment. This lapband thing is a long and slow process and sometimes you can get so stuck on one pound at a time, but when you add them all together it is awesome. What a huge difference this has made in my life. I can't imagine why I waited so long to help myself. I think of some of my friends who are fat and miserable and their health is failing and I just want to slap them in the face and say save yourself! I would not trade my lapband experience for anything in the world.

  11. Wahooooo youuuuuuuuu!!!!! I just talked to a colleague today at work who is having major medical problems made worse by her weight issues. I told her that I feel like someone recently converted to a new religion...zealous and ready to tell everyone to try the band.
