Aug 10, 2009I 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
