Under 200...FINALLY!

Aug 10, 2009

I have now lost 131 lbs!  I feel great and love the new me.  I still have a ways to go but am not stressing about it.  After Feb. I got stuck on a platue that I couldn't seem to break.  My body seemed to want a break from the weightloss.   I tried many different things and nothing really seemed to work.  

I don't have restriction to speak of and was considering going in for another fill.  I don't think I have ever really reached restriction.  There have been a few times right after a fill that I have felt restriction for a week or 2 and then it is gone.  The thing is I was losing weight without it and I like being able to each anything (within reason of course) but not being limited when I'm in public.  I do have some things that the band helps with for sure...chewing  and eating slower so I don't get stuck being the main thing.

I'm about 20 lbs away from my wedding weight and my hubby told me that I look great and even if I stayed the weight I was now he would be thrilled with how I looked.  That was sweet of course but I want to lose more :-)

Anyway, long story short, in July I changed some things in my activity level and reduced some more of my calorie intake.  I have also put myself back on a more 'band like' diet and walla...I have started losing again.  So here I go on the last leg of my journey to get down to my goal weight!  I'm not sure (neither is my dr) that I can get to my goal weight with my body type and my excess skin but I think I can get close and I'm gonna try! :D
