1 year since Band removal

Aug 14, 2010

Well, it was one year ago today that I had my band removed.  I was so scared because I'd heard so many horror stories about people either having their band removed or else having it completely unfilled and then gaining weight back like crazy.  I did not have a choice in the matter so out it came.  I can now say that 1 year later I am still down and actually have lost 25 MORE lbs since having it removed!  The lifestyle changes I made with the band set me up with a great model to help me succeed even after it was gone.

 I am only about 5 lbs above my wedding weight and SO excited about that.   My goal is to lose about 20ish more lbs total.  I've lost a total of 149.8 lbs as of today!!!  

Thrilled with my life, my body and how I feel in general....no complaints!!
