5 Month Update

Starting weight (6/8/12): 281 lbs
Surgery day (10/26/2012): 261 lbs
Current weight: 220 lbs

-41 lbs since surgery
-61 lbs loss overall

I only lost 4 lbs in the last month. That's pretty frustrating considering I was previously losing around 8 lbs a month. I had hoped that I'd get to be like Lap Band Gal (don't we all?) and never get stuck but never get hungry. But so far, my band doesn't work like that. I haven't managed to stay under 1200 calories in a long time. And anything above that, the losing has been getting slower and slower. I'll need a fill if I want to lower my calorie intake, but really dread getting stuck more often.

And I'm sure my results have nothing to do with the fact that I'm still a Starbucks addict. I've managed to kick sodas and beer, but my beloved 200 calorie grande non-fat chai latte is holding on strong.

This post made possible by the lovely barristas
at my neighborhood Starbucks.


  1. Found you from Rockband Barbie's post. We both started at similar weights (my highest was 281, and I was around 257 on surgery day) and had our surgeries around the same time (I was 11/07). I'm super excited that you've lost 40 lbs since your surgery! I haven't even hit 20 yet, so getting a bit discouraged... :)

    1. Hi Anna! Don't get discouraged! Everyone's pace is different. I'm definitely slowing down now, while your's will probably ramp up. We're gonna kick ass at this!

  2. Don't Worry.... I Plateau'D For 6 Weeks With Hardly Any Loss At All..... You Will Pick Back Up!
