I am still at 53-55lbs down. I have not gained butr no loss. I even started running ME!! RUN!!! and still here at 183lbs. Sometimes I am ok with this and other times I get mad at it. In all I am much happier than I was9 months ago for sure. I no longer use the c-pap on one b/p pill. I am playing and running with my kids. My husband doesn't want me to loose anymore weight but I would like to loose 10-15 more. Now as for the body I HAVE NO BOOBS! and a fair amount of droopy skin on my thighs, butt, and stomach YUCK! Not sure about what I am going to do with that. I gues first I need to get rid of these last pounds.

Well I have not been on in awhile so I thought I would give an update. To date I have lost 53lbs. Surgery was May 23rd. My goal is to loose 70-83lbs. I have been at a stand still for about a month now and I am getting frustrated!!!!  The more frustrated I get the more my old habits creep up on me. Part of the problem is I am not exercising as i should. As with may people time is always a factor. My band has been playing tricks on me as well. From the time i get up until well after noon I can not eat solids. When I eat lunch The first 4-5 bites get stuck It takes 10-15 minutes for that to clear either by going down or coming up and then I can eat and it can turn into to much. Liquids are not satisfying me....(shakes) and even they are not going down so well first thing in the morning. I don't know.... Just want to scream!!! The doctor took me off one of my b/p pills and I no longer need my c-pap

I have been struggling lately not to return to the hold grazing habit. I am now down 52lbs and feel so much better. I have an appointment with my MD on Wed. and hope to get off half of my Blood pressure medicine and see if he will send me for a sleep test and hopefully I will no longer need c-pap to sleep. I went to a wedding this past week-end and got so many compliments it was almost embarrasing. I just kept thinking I must have looked terrible before. I guess that is me obese mind following me. I am still very happy with me decision to get the lap-band

Quick note. I have been struggling waiting to get enough restriction. Down 35 pounds and have reached Onederland which I have not seen in over 10 years. Very busy with moving and kids. I am able to read other  peoples post more than write them or give advice. I feel like I am so new at this that my opinion is not to much so I continue to learn from others. My goal is to add some pictures after the move.

All went well on Moday. Everyone was nice and explained all that was going on. I had a little scare before surgery that caused me to break down. The anestesiologist informed me when I woke up I would still have the breathing tube down my throat. I paniced!!! It was such a scary thought. I told him that I did not want this and of course I got the fat lecture and my risks. Thank god my sister was there or I may have took a walk. It turned out fine I remember them telling me they were taking it out but that was it (thank god!). There was little pain. The first night was the most They were giving me morphine which was not really helpingh only making me sleepy. I asked them to call the doctor and he orderd hyicet and it worked like a charm, I was able to rest. I am home now and still feeling tired but took care of the family and went to the store today.

So I just went away for a long weekend with my husband, and two other couples to Vegas. It was a great time but I had daily reminders of my weight and how bad I need to get it under control. The plane! It is bad enough not to fit in one seat (humilation as my be-hind is blubbering into the chair next to me, but the pain, it almost puts me in tears. The physical pain of the hand rest digging into my flesh along with the back and feet pain. By the time I reach Vegas everything hurts and I can't wait to lay down. I had incident after incident from the looks of others to the complete lack of acknowledgement of my precesence. The chairs being to small in the theatre and hear is the topper. I bought a ticket to ride a thrill ride on top of the stratosphere only to find out I could not fit into the seat! I suppose I spent a great deal of time ignoring the reality of my surroundings when the reality is what I should have been seeing fore a long time now. My over-powering fear has started to change and the true reality of my need for this procedure is front and center. May 21st can't come soon enough (my surgery date)
