Just wanted to check in with some of the most supportive and great people to wish you a happy Tuesday . School year coming to a close my birthday celebrations galore for me ! geez this year is so different in terms of food I consumed don't get me wrong I did have cake and such but it's great that my mind allows me to eat and see it for what it is and my band keeps it in check not to over indulge and my healthy eating habits allow me to enjoy my cake yet crave my healthy way of eating way more. My work out routine helps to tie it all together. July 1 2013 best day of my life as I was banded that day in secret just a few family members and friends knew. Thought I was keeping secrets but nope just sharing the thing I cherish most with the people I cherish most :)

Bought a fancy headband -- just came in the mail. For my 5K in September, which I will probably walk, which is as much as I walk most days, lol. Anyway, the headband from Bolder Bands was $18 and my husband is teasing about that -- a headband? But it's very cool and gets my hair away from my face. I feel quite sporty and athletic. Who knew?

Hi all. Happy hump day. So...I just wasted $75. I was wearing a size 12 slacks and they were getting loose in the butt and leg so I ordered 10's and one pair in an 8. This was only six weeks ago. The 10's fit fine and the 8 was a little too tight. Well, now the 10's are too loose and the 8's fit fine. In just six weeks....and with only about a 4 lb. loss. I know it doesn't take much to go down a size at this point, but really? Six weeks and already the pants are too big. I own the same three or four pairs of slacks in 16, 12, 10 and now 8. Bringing them all down to Florida with me next time I visit and giving away the 16's to GoodWill, hoping mom can fit into the 12's, and not even sure what I'll do with the 10's. Thank goodness they weren't expensive but even so...I feel like I can open up my own clothing store. I'm going to need a new winter coat, and a new wardrobe along with it. Even some of my short sleeve tops I bought not too long ago are getting too big. I know...it's a good problem to have and I should shut up now. LOL! Have a great day everyone!

As my close friend tells me when I happily comment that my clothes are getting to

Big her new thing to tell me is # skinnygirlproblems and that's what I thought when I saw your post

Now we have to learn to shop in way more moderation n not so far ahead. 1 bathing suit I bought is already getting big on me but it will do for the summer.

Congrats in ur success and hard work can't wait to get I to single digits myself :)

@@gowalking, I just love reading about your success! Yes, a good problem to have. I was just thinking yesterday how little I spend on food now and how seldom I am in the grocery store. I'll be making it up on clothes soon.

Loose clothes -- yippee!!!! So happy for you......I have to say, it feels so good when those pants start falling off of me. Can't wait to get to the next size. Not rushing it, but it's all happening.

Hi all. Lost the thread for a bit just reading and catching up again:) everyone is doing awesome and looking marvelous!!

Bandista I am going to be doing a 5k this July! Just got my registration# today!

It feels good to finally be able to do it. Every year I have to decline for one health reason or another. Last year it was for Lapband surgery! This year I am fit and healthy and we are gonna cross those finish lines!!! Take a photo as you do and let's share our victory!!!

GW love the small sizes and you look great. I hate shopping and so far that has not changed ;) clothes and food shopping so not my forte.

Off to beddy bye early early as I head to NJ tomorrow at 5am for safety training. I totally deserve a FAT raise!

SO you guys know how much I love my boxing classes. I feel so comfortable there and supported. And my confidence has soared since I started. Yesterday I was talking to the manager and he commented he could really tell I had lost some weight. When I told him how much total I had lost, he mouth dropped open. Then I told him how much I had lost since coming to the gym in December. He had to sit down. And then he sent out the weekly email to the members and it started like this:

Hey guys,

Starting out with the member spotlight really quick...my girl Diane Willingham is on fire! I commented that I could tell she has been losing some weight today and then she goes and drops a bomb on me. Since Diane joined in December she has lost 74lbs!!!!!!! Since she started her journey in October she is down over 140lbs!!! We are so pumped for you Diane...keep showing up and we will keep pushing you!!!

So, that was a total highlight of my day :)

      Last night, I decided to cancel my surgery for today 😰. I just feel so uneasy about the hospital and the fact that I only spoke with the surgeon once (not sure if that's normal or not)....it seems so transactional, plus a slew of other things that I feel should be handled differently - yesterday's call was the final straw. Looking for a another surgeon/facility to help me, hoping this is an easy process.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.
