4 months

So this Wednesday I will have been banded 4 months. I am down 45lbs as of this morning, lost 8 inches in my waist, and down 2 pant sizes..... Yippy, all great news. I have my 4th fill this week too. I have a 10cc band and 3 and a half cc's filled. I have been getting stuck alot since the last fill, no fun. So I have been focusing on smaller bites and slowing down. I chew very well, don't need to work on this.In fact I chew so well I chewed my crown right off...lol... going to get it put back on tomorrow.
So I have to say all is going well. I still crave all the wrong things but try to stay away from them. I still look in the mirror sometimes and not see that I have lost 45 lbs. I am hoping someday these things will go away.

Also on a happy note, my hubby who has now lost 58lbs, got a job promotion and we are moving home to California. We are very excited to be going back to our family and friends.


  1. Congrats on the losses and the promotion.

  6. I'm your 38th follower! I'm getting my band on Aug 11. I've lost 130 lbs on my own..Twice! And gained it all back the first time and 90 of it back the second time. I'm hoping the band will be the trick to help me keep it off for good! I'm loving this community of support on facebook, youtube, and these blogs. I have one too and enjoy reading/writing all about this process. Congrats on your 4 month milestone!! =)
