Picture blog!!

Hey friends :) I have missed everyone! Sorry I havent posted in about a week or so but this lady has been crazy busy! I know I posted on December 1st and told everyone about my first fill. It went fine...no big deal! I figured out that I have an 11 cc band and the doctor decided to put 3 cc's in my band. I honestly can't feel much restriction...just like everyone told me. The doctor said I should do another fill 3-4 weeks from the first one so I'm looking at going back around the very beginning of January. So I am already looking forward to that! At about how many cc's should I start to feel major restriction?? I know it is different from everyone but maybe around 7 or 8 cc? As for weight loss, I am happy with where I am at. I am 6 weeks out from surgery and as of this morning, I have lost 23 pounds!! I am down to 234 and I couldnt be happier!! I would love to be down 30 pounds by the new year but that means losing 7 more pounds in 3 weeks. We will see!!

Anyways, my boyfriend finally had to go back to Dallas :( He came to visit me November 22 and was originally supposed to go back on December 1st. But he was having such a good time he decided to stay until December 6th! So we had a great time while he was here. We had Thanksgiving then the Iron Bowl (which if your from the south and especially from Alabama you know that is one of the biggest college football rivalries) then my high schools 6A championship game and lots of good times with my friends and family! So the blog is mainly to post a bunch of our pictures!! We took tons of pictures but I just wanted to post some of my favorites to share with you :) Hope you enjoy!

We had a great time!!


  1. You are looking amazing girly! As far as the fill, I think it varies for us all. I have 6.5 cc's in my 11 cc band and I've definetly got some restriction going on!

    It looks like you had a fun few weeks with Burch! Isn't he moving out your way? I'll have to chat you up next time we are on Facebook at the same time so I can get the scoop :)

  2. You are too cute and the BF too! I love the way you dress - very flattering!

    I have a 10 cc band and my fills went like this: 4, then 6, now 7. I am super restricted right now. For me, the restriction really kicked in once I got to 6 ccs. Which would probably be around 6-7 for you with 11 ccs.

    Congrats on the losses so far!

  3. Oh I forgot - what brand of jeans do you wear? You look good in them! I am always on the lookout for new jeans to try, I just never feel comfortable (attractive) in them and always wear skirts/dresses.

  4. WAR EAGLE!!!!! Wasn't that a heart breaker?

    I'm not really looking forward to my first fill b/c of exactly what you said...no real restriction. I've heard it takes 3-4 fills to get good restriction. Some say you can get restriction after the first fill, but it only lasts about a week or two.

  5. You're doing great with the weight loss! Cute pictures too!

  6. You're looking great! :)

    I have a 10 cc band and I'm up to 4cc's, and I feel I hve restriction. Like now Ive only been able to get down 4 oz of hot chocolate and I'm clogged. *lol*

  7. Kristen, you look sooo cute with your BF. Your weight loss is fantastic. I am really impressed by the photo at the college game! I am not sure if it was a pre game show or the half time, but they really put on a show!! I used to do Drill Team in HS & loved going to the games & participating like that.

  8. Aw you look so cute and like it was a ton of fun!!! I started feeling minor restriction around 5cc. It varies w/ all of us!
