So I had my 3rd fill, and NOW I finally get it. I have restriction and tightness and fullness. And have lost another 3lbs since my dr. visit...praise the Lord! So now it's ON! I plan to get serious about the next 10 lbs with a renewed diet/exercise plan for the remainder of summer.
On the vacay front, I was able to dodge my SIL's invasion of our beach trip and had a lovely time with our cousin's family instead. The boys were constantly on the go, and the hubby and I were able to rest & relax with our toes in the sand.
Last year at the beach I was at my all time heaviest and was maintaining that weight in order to qualify for WLS. It was brutal-and depressing. I was so heavy and unhappy and HOT and sweaty and tired. It was all I could do to carry the sunblock to the beach. What a difference a year and 40 lbs makes! I felt more comfortable in my bathing suit (a cute blue and white polka dot number from Land's End) and even discarded the cover up this year. I actually complained about how cold the condo was-and had to turn up the air! MIRACLES!!! But most importantly I had the energy and desire to fully participate in all my family's activities. Oh, and when I got back and stepped on my scales to check out the damage...??? ka-ching! No weight gained. I LOVE THIS BAND!!!
Do I have further to go??? Of course! Do I look like a mermaid goddess perched on the sand??? Well... just wait til next year!!!
