Well I am finally where I think i want to be. I now weight 124 ponds and loving every minute of it. I know if I hear one more person say I have lost too much, I think I will scream!!! When i was 241 pounds people were saying i needed to drop a few pounds. Now that I have they still want to make comments. I love the weight I am and that is what matters the most!!!

Hello everyone, again sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. After that last post I had gotten really sick. I ended up having major surgery. So i have been laid up since Feb. 22. Plus If you didn't already know I am a very BIG UNIVERSITY OF LOUISVILLE FAN!!! We almost made it to the final 4 in men's and women's basketball. Both teams lost to the Tar Heels!!
Other then that, I am now down to 152lbs. from 241lbs. I only have 12lbs. more to go. My Dr. said not to get to upset if I don't make it to my goal because most people don't. I had to remind him that I have not been able to exercise or anything for the past 6 months or so. But when I go back to work I will be able to go to the gym as much as I want!!! So If anything I would like to tone. I may gain a few but that is a good gain!!! I will post some more pics after that. I am in a size 8 jean from a size 22-24. SO YOU KNOW I FEEL GGGRRREEEAAATTT!!!
As Tony the Tiger would say!!!

I am so sorry that I haven't posted any news about my progress. I have been really busy. Right now I haven't lost much weight. I am kind of at a stand still. I go for my first fill on 3-29-07, and i can't wait. I am eating ok. Sometimes i still feel hungry. At other times i can tell when I am full. I have had a few times that I had to let somethings back up ( if you know what I mean). Other then that 3-29-07 can't get here fast enough!!!
I Made It!!!
Jan 28, 2007
Well it was nothing like I thouhgt it was going to be. It was a piece of cake. I am not really in too much pain or anything. As soon as I got to my room I got up and went to the bathroom. My nurse was like do you want a bed pan?? I told her no I want to walk. So I walked and I felt Fine. No major probs at all. My BP was up a little, but we got it down and then they let me go. I even went to Kroger and walked around with my mom, with no problems. I feel great. I was 241lbs. pre-Op I will keep everyone updated with my progress. Thank you again for all of your support.
Less Then 24 Hours Togo!!!

I am soooo hungry!! Lol, now I am drinking that Magnesium Citrate, yum. I can't wait until it gets here so I can get it over with. I am excited though. I just want to get the worst part over with (the IV)!!! I hate needles, yes I know it is stupid for me to have the lap band when they have to do our fills with a needle but it was the best choice for me. I just have to make sure I don't look! well I guess I will post another update after I get home. I have to stay one night at the hosp. and then I am going to my mom's. I will post something when I get there. Thanks again everyone for your words of support I really need it.
Clear liquid diet
Jan 24, 2007
Well I started my clear liquid diet today. It's not that bad. I kind of want to lay around all day so I don't think about eating. I can't believe I have to do this for two days. Then tomorrow I have to drink that stuff to clean out my system. Thank God for jello!!! I will be glad to get it over with. I went a got some soup, Jello, and pudding. My son was like is that for me and then I grabbed the sugar free and he was like "I guess Not" LOL so I had to get him regular. It was really cute. (i guess you had to be there) I still need an angel!!
