Weigh-In Wednesday (Week 36 Post-op)

I am officially in the 250's! I have lost a total of 120 pounds now, and 100 since surgery on January 12th, 2011. That is a 32% weight loss! I'm thrilled with the results.

My fickle little band has decided to tighten itself up again. It was fine as could be after my fill in early August and just recently, it has been nearly impossible to get any sort of solid down...even chunky soup is a challenge. I can chug water, but anything with substance, forget it. Ohh unless you count chips and crackers and all of the other things that easily break down! I have had a few PB's lately, and decided enough is enough! I'm going in tomorrow to have .5cc's taken out. That will allow me to eat solids and still feel like I have control.

The highest amount of fluid I have ever had in my band was 7cc's and that was extremely too tight to the point that I could not even get water down. I'm at 6.75 now and some days it's good and after a PB episode, I just can't seem to get back to norm.  From April to May, I was at 6.5ccs and I want to be at 6.25.

I am very content with my weight loss so far and am in the 250's. My height lets me get away with it. I'm in XL scrubs. Clothes look cute on me. No double chins in photos anymore. I can live with a much slower weight loss.

Wish I was going to Boobs, but instead I have to work :(  Have a great week everyone!

Weigh-in Wednesday Week 34 post-op

Oops! I didn't do an "official weigh-in" last week. This week's weight is 261.1. Total loss 117.4 pounds!

It seems my band has tightened up on me again. I had a tiny fill in the beginning of August and was fine for the first two weeks. My monthly cycle started and I tightened up, and it has stayed tight. I've been doing a lot of protein shakes and bars to get my protein in, but other than that and Greek Yogurt and tuna salad, there hasn't been too much I have been able to eat.  I haven't had any PB episodes in the past few days, so hoping things will go back to normal. If not, another tiny unfill is in order.

Vacation is exactly a month away. I'm excited! I am 11 pounds away from my goal of weighing 250. I'm not sure if I will make it by then, but we shall see! I would be happy to be in the 50's! I couldn't even tell you the last time I weighed 250...I must have been 12. (Again, I'm 5'11")

Anyways, hope everyone has a happy weight loss week!
