    Valentine Day Challenge?

    I started this challenge at 238.6. I lost another 2.4 pounds this week! I am now at 226.6, 2.6 pounds away from my goal.

    "trial liquid diet"

    My bariatric clinic gives everyone in my lap-band program homework. One of our homework assignments this month was to go on a 3 day trial liquid diet. I thought that those three days would be really tough for me, but they weren't. I drank protein shakes for breakfast and lunch and ate sugar-free jello, Greek yogurt, tomato soup and drank FF milk throughout the day. I lost 7 pounds in those 3 days and I was consuming about 1200 calories a day. I have never experienced such rapid weight loss. That was over two weeks ago and I haven't regained any of that weight. I'm actually looking forward to my 10 day pre-sugery liquid diet. Maybe I'll drop 10 pounds in those 10 days!

    Valentine Day Challenge?

    My goal was 10 lbs by 2/14. Last week I weighed in at 238.6. As of this morning I am 232.2, down 6.4 pounds in 1 week! I might actually lose enough weight to get a sugery date. I need to be 226.5 or less to get a surgery date.

    Where are the vermonters?

    Last week I went to the intro meeting with Dr. F's office. I'm really excited about having the Lap Band surgery. Did it take all of you the full 6 months to actually have the surgery done? I'm so anxious and want this to ahppen already. Thanks! Jay
