75+lbs gone and "normal" bmi



Recommended Posts

What a difference! I still don't see any change in me but my son says I've lost a lot of weight. My doctor's staff took a before pic of me on 12/27/12. I was banded on 12/28/12 and I'm still wearing the same clothes. I know that I do fit in an airline seat now and the buckle fits with room to spare. However' date=' when I look in the mirror I see the same old me. Maybe it's psychological. I've been heavy all my life and even though I imagine myself thinner I just don't see it yet.[/quote']

Sometimes it takes the brain a long time to catch up with your body. I was the same way wearing the same clothes even tho I had lost weight.

Hi guys. Just wanted to post an update and progress pic. It's a little over a year since surgery (banded 5/29/12). I'm down over 75lbs and in the normal bmi range. It's SO strange to be able to say that! Lol I'd still love to lose a little more weight to get to my goal. These last lbs are slow' date=' but steady which is fine by me! My mind still has trouble catching up with my body, but looking at old pics now and then helps put things in perspective. Hope everyone's having a good summer!

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
