6 1/2 months banded.. progress pics..


Recommended Posts

I've been banded a little over 6 months now. I have posted this before and I will say it again, I really feel like it's taken me 6 months to *kinda* get the hang of the band. It's a daily surprise to find what worked yesterday doesn't work today. I thank God, and care credit financing, every single day for my band. I am 25lbs from my goal. My goal is 190lbs. I might lose more but to be honest I really like being a curvy girl. (please note curvy not fat) I like my hips and I like my hour glass shape. I am currently a size 16 and find that even they are big in the waist but can't go down because of hips/azz. When I reach my goal weight and size.. I'm thinking a size 12 I will start buying clothes that fit my hips/booty/thighs and have them tailored to the rest of me.

This forum is such a godsend for me. I lurk and read several times a day.. commenting here and there.. getting pissy from time to time and wiping my eyes. I have a special fondness for Ramona and Evette since we were banded on the same day and met at the OCC. I love hearing everyone's ups/downs and allll arounds!

I have tried for a week now to get my blasted photo's to post but can't get it.. and good lord I thought I was computer savy!!

so here are the links.. maybe someone can fix it for me.

Before 276 lbs

Wow, look at you, all the girls are really comen out and showen off their stuff! Girl you are looken great!! Such a big difference, you look so cute!!

(I'll be honest, I never thought I'd get as thin as I have, sometimes it can be hard to stop loosen the weight, I was hoping for 165, thought 175 would be fine, but I go between 135 and 145 now, I think I'm finally at my stopping point) Just a forewarning! And I like curves too!!

All the best to you!

thanks to everyone who commented ><' I was nervous to post but excited at the same time (if that makes sense)

Lisa- I understand what you said about not knowing when your body will stop losing..... If I settle at 190 I will be very happy, I try not to set myself up for disappointment.. YOU look FABULOUS!!!!

I stepped on the scale this morning and am down another 2lbs to 213. WOW... all I can say. WOW... I went shopping today and ONLY shopped in the regular size section... ME, in regular sizes.

Thanks again everyone! xoxoxox

You look really good. :D What a difference you look like a totally new person. It is funny how we all, at first, aim for a safe weight size, but like Lisal said once we get there we will want to lose more. Keep up all the good work.
