6 Month Bandaversary....


Recommended Posts

:lb14:

So this morning is my 6 month bandaversary. The time has flown by so fast. I still cannot believe that I am where I am with my weight right now. I worry sometimes that I am gonna wake up and this be a nightmare and I am back at 238.

I have worked very hard at the gym but I love my band.

So here are the changes that have happened in the last 6 months.

On 4/24/09, I weighed in at 238. (highest weight)

My surgery Day 5/19/09: 221

Today 11/19/09: 150.3

I wish I would have measured myself completely back then.

The only measurement I know is my waist which was 43 1/2

now it is 29 1/2

Size of clothes:

4/24/09 & 5/19/09

tops: XXL & 14/16 as well as 18/20

jeans: 18 (tight)

dress: 16 - 18

5/19/09:

tops: medium to large depending on the cut

jeans: mostly 8s, but I bought a pair of Levi's yesterday that are a size 6.

dress: not sure, haven't bought one or tried any sizes on yet.

What a whirlwind this has been.

I am not yet at goal, my first goal is a tad more than 5 pounds to go, and that will put me at 145. I want to get to 138 to 135.

The support from this forum has been so wonderful and I thank my lucky stars to have found all of you. I am blessed.

So many of you are more than just support, you are friends. :friends:

Hugs to all,

Kristi

Congrats to you on your success!! Contrary to popular belief, we all know that even w/ the band you still have to have dicipline, drive and will power to make it happen. The weight doesn't come off on it's own. February will be my 6 mo. anniversary and you have inspired me to continue to work hard and know that it can happen.

You go and rock those size 6 jeans, you've earned it!! :cheerleader:
