Finally!!

I am pleased to announce my weigh-in results from yesterday!

Seeing that I have been in the 180's since May 1st (or May 4th...I can't remember) I was ecstatic to see a new number on my scale!!

After about 2 weeks of hardcore discipline my scale said 178.6 pounds yesterday morning!! Finally in the 170's!! This makes my total weight lost 82 pounds since having surgery and it sure is a great feeling.

Originally I wanted to be 160 pounds (my goal) by my 2 year bandiversary which is October 23rd. But seeing that I would need to lose 18 pounds in the next 7 weeks seems a little too hard and quite frankly healthy for myself. My new goal is to just see the 160's by October 23rd. If that means 169 pounds I am perfect with that and if that means 165 pounds I am good with that too. Either way I need to lose about 9 more pounds in the next 7 weeks!!

*************

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! I am headed in about an hour to Nashville with my family and some friends. My parents are having a reunion with a bunch of their good friends from high school and everyone is bringing their kids to "show off" as my mom would say.

Happy Saturday :)

  8. Hi, Kristen:

    My name is Leah Ingram, and I'm writing profiles of men and women who have chosen to have Lapband (versus another kind of weight loss surgery), and it sounds like you're a success story. (I'm posting requests on multiple Lapband-related blogs to find people to interview.) If you're interested in speaking with me, can you drop me an email? It is leah dot ingram AT comcast dot net My deadline is 9/12/11. We can talk by phone or do the interview by email.Thanks. Hope to hear from you.
