Friday Weigh-In

Starting weight: 281 lbs
Surgery day: 261 lbs

Today's weight: 196.6

- 1.6 lb loss

-64.4 lbs loss since surgery
-84.4 lb loss overall

Lowest weight in 15 years! The teachers at my son's daycare have all been making a big deal about how great I look, saying they don't even recognize me at first. I can get used to this.

I have no idea what is even happening with me, weight-wise. I feel like I could eat ALL THE THINGS, but I usually don't, and I'm still losing weight. But I'm not going to question it too much. I have a lapband appointment scheduled for Monday. I've been debating getting a tiny fill (like .1) since I only have 6.3cc in my band, and it would be nice to be less hungry sometimes. But then, I think I'm only hungry when I'm supposed to be, like when it's been at least 3-4 hours since my last meal. And obviously, I'm losing at my current level, so maybe I shouldn't jinx myself? Nobody can make a giant deal out of .1ccs like me.

Now that I've hit Onederland, it's on to the next mini-goal! Which is: 191 lbs. Way to set the bar low, right? The thing that is so special about 191 lbs is that it would put me in the "overweight" BMI category, instead of the "obese" one. And then, after that, it's only another 10 lbs to hit my 100 lb weight loss! Which, if you'll remember, involves PRESENTS.


  1. I think 191 is a terrific mini goal - the more celebrations the better - goodness knows we had enough days, months, years of beating ourselves up! So happy for you, you are doing AWESOME!!

  2. I'm always one to celebrate small milestones. "I made it through the week! Lets have cookies!" But it's what keeps me going.
