I'm in! I didn't quite meet my September goal, but knowing I could log the miles here gave me the impetus to keep going when I wanted to quit. I love, love, LOVE these kinds of challenges! :D

Count me in as well. This seems to be just the challenge I need to get back into the swing of things. Lost 100+ pounds , slipped band due to hiatel hernia, gained 25 following repair.

It has taken nearly a year to finally get restriction again as my clinic has been very careful with re-filling. I'm looking forward to meeting this goal!

Tell me about your slipped band. How do you think it happened? Did you have surgery right away or did you wait to see if it would slip back into place? How was recovery for the revision vs the band placement?

My band is slipped, and has been for 6 weeks. I go for another follow up appt. Monday to see by fluoroscope if it's slipping back. I think my band slipped from frequent vomiting in the spring/summer when my allergies were awful and my stomach would get gunked/plugged up by post nasal drip, my NP thinks so too. I am (of course!) hoping it'll go back in place w/out surgery.

I want to do this challenge! Banded a week ago and think this is a great motivator. I'm still not able to do the ticker thing...can anyone give me some more direction. I couldn't get it to paste. I've made my ticker, but can't get it to show up here.

Joan: I say you should modify it any way you want--the ultimate goal is motivation and movement, right? I'm going to be doing my 60 miles on the elliptical to minimize the impact on my knees, and I want my 60 miles to be above and beyond my daily activity, but that's MY plan. I think yours should be what you want it to be! :D

I am excited to join this challenge!

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        @billybob I am thriving and breathing! That's a blessing!

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

      5. SabrinaGoddess

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
