Six Month Update

Starting weight (6/8/12): 281 lbs
Surgery day (10/26/2012): 261 lbs
Current weight: 208.8 lbs

- 52.2 lbs since surgery
- 72.2 lbs loss overall

My lap band is six months old today! I'm 9 lbs away from Onederland! WHAT.

I've lost 11 lbs in the last month, which feels really good. Last month, I only lost 4 lbs. I have this weird bone that's started protruding near my neck that I can feel and sometimes see. WebMD says it's a collar bone, but I've never had one of those, so I'm not so sure. We had a really good lap band support group meeting last night. I received some good reminders that even though goal feels far away sometimes, I've lost over 70 lbs and that's AWESOME.

Next mini goal is Onederland by June!


  1. Great job! Onderland is so close!

  2. Awesome!! Keep up the great work!

  3. I guess we were banded on the same day--today is 6 months for me too. Onederland by June sounds very doable (for you, not me). Congratulations!

    1. Happy six months to you too Connie!

  4. Yay for your six months and amazing weight loss! x

  5. Onederland is knocking on your door!!! Woo hoooo! I know you can do it by June :)

  6. Wow, what a month - and happy six months! Fabulous!!

  7. Congrats on finding your clavicle! I reacted the same way when I could first see between my thighs... Web MD confirmed it was a vajajay!! ;-)

  8. Happy bandiversary. Im curious to see if i have collar bones....its one of my secret goals because I've never seen them.

    Congrats on your weight loss ants for being an inspiration.
