My name is Jaimie, I am a wife to an amzaing husband,and a mommy to my beautiful son who is almost 2. I am a stay at home mom and love every minute of it. I have struggled with my weight all my life and made the decision to change that and was banded on July 28, 2010. My hubby will be banded on Sept. 16, 2010 and we will be "Band"ed Together

Buh bye 22!!!

Almost 3 weeks post op and I'm officially down 22 lbs.!!! Wooohoo!!! Pants fitting better, clothes a little loser and I'm feeling great! Liquid diet is behind me and have fully embraced the "mushies"! Here is one of my favorite recipes to get me through this stage:

1 egg
1 tblsp of pureed cauliflower
2 shakes of parmesan cheese

Mix, cook until eggs are done and top with salsa....YUM!!!

I can't wait for my first fill in a couple of weeks as I am not feeling much restriction so doing it all on willpower right now. Other things I can't wait for joining the YMCA with the hubby to begin working out, breaking out the smaller clothes from the top of the closet and saying goodbye to my size 24's forever! Life is good! Jason has his meeting with the surgeon next Wednesday so hopefully he will be joining the banded crew in the near future!

Question of the week, is anyone experiencing hiccups with more frequency since being banded? I seem to get the hiccups more often now and not sure if it is normal or not. Not a big deal but is weird.

Well that is it for right now...hope everyone is doing well!!!


  1. I don't experience more hiccups personally..

    Good job on 22 lost! You are doing great.

  2. I'll hiccup a few time when I overeat but as for regular hiccups, no more than I would before I think.

    Good for you, losing twenty-two!

    You'll shop no more for a twenty-four!

  3. Sorry no extra hiccups here for me either.
    Congrats on such a fantastic loss so far.
