FINALLY...it's been a long time coming!


As of this morning I am down 40 POUNDS!! Holy smokes! I have been waiting for this day for months!

I hopped up on my trusty little scale this morning and it read 217.2...1 pound down from yesterday! I am trying to be super strict with my eating habits (lots and lots of water, no eating about 7 pm, no snacking...blah blah blah) and apparently it seems to be paying off.

If you have been reading my posts for a while, you know I had been in the 220's since about April until September. 6 months!! This was depressing but my fault at the same time...a constant cycle of lose, gain, lose, gain. But I am down 4 pounds from two weeks ago at my doctor's appointment so if I can keep up this lose-2-pounds-a-week thing (I will even take 1 pound a week), I will be in good shape!

Anyways, happy 40 for me!! Hoping 50 pounds down isn't too far away!!

Thanks again for all the support! Love yall more than you know!

  15. Kristen, it was so wonderful to get the chance to meet you in Chicago! You are gorgeous. I'm so happy for your 40 down. Anyone who thinks having a band is a freebie and doesn't involve some work... is obviously not banded! Slow is truly better because those eating habits are sustainable (which imho is the entire reason to get a band). You'll get to 50 for sure, all while enjoying your fabulous life.
