So today is my one year band anniversary! I am officially 1/2 way to my goal! 67.5lbs down as of this morning! I will do some measurements and post them soon too!
So what is different one year later? Well I have lost 67lbs, I feel better, my skin feels better, I am in a size 18 pant, and a 1x or XL top, I am happier, I am taking much better care of myself, I want to learn more about how to manage my food and my life better...
I had a fill yesterday and now I have 3.8 ccs in my 4 cc band, and I am crossing my fingers that it gives me the restriction I am hoping for.
The things that I am surprised about is that no matter what I do people still just don't understand. I am also amazed at how unsupportive some people are, I think they may mean well, but they just don't understand. This has been a major change for me in my life, and I just would appreciate it if others would notice and try to help more, but I cannot expect others to understand. I am just surprised. I am also surprised about how much I have missed some foods, and how dependent I was on food to make me feel better. I really thought I had no food issues, but you know what I really do. I am not completely sure about what they are, but I know I have some and I am working on figuring them out.
I am so glad I had my band, I really don't think I could have gotten this far with out it. I have a ways to go, and I really want to start getting much more proactive about exercising. In the next 6 months to a year I would like to get closer to my goal and start exercising at least 30 minutes a day.
Thank you to everyone who has been supportive and for checking out my blog frequently! Your support has been unbelievable and so supportive! Thank you I need all the support I can get!
