LilySlim Weight loss tickers

Sunday, July 17, 2011


Wow has it really been six months since my surgery?! I went in not knowing how things would turn out. All I could think was THIS has to be the start of the new me. And here I am, six months later and so much happier. I never thought I could feel this way AND look this way. As of right now though my band is way too tight so that means i am unable to eat anything without it coming back up :( I knew that could happen, and all i need to do is go back to the Dr so they can remove some out of the band and ill be good and off these protein shakes. Although they are good (Body Fortress Cookies and Cream - Walmart $14.) I really want to eat lol Yah, im greedy. Finding so many people on Twitter that have had the Lapband is awesome! Reading their tweets inspires me. I just wish i had the motivation to work out on a regular. I went from a size 22 in December to a size 16 now. I am a happy woman. My first original goal was
 a size 14 and now that I am pretty much there, I think I would like to be a size 9. A 14 is still too big for my small frame.


Pictures for your viewing pleasure lol
