I'm With The (Lap) Band

Wednesday, April 06, 2005


Today, I'm two days shy of my 4 month mark - I'm down 46 lbs. as of my last weighing last week and I'm not saying that's not good. It's great! I'm averaging about 11.5 lbs per month - which I know is above average. I also know that almost 40 of those came in the first two months - so I've spent the last two months getting six pounds off. Logically, I know that this is my body saying "WHOA! Slow down a little, I've got to catch up."

Well, I've been told that when you aren't losing as much as you think you should - to measure. That sometimes when you aren't moving as fast down the scales, it could be that your body is just compacting into its new weight.

So tonight, I measured - or rather had my Mom measure me to get a more accurate reading. After adding up all of the inches gone, I've lost a total of 37.5 inches!!

These measurements are the sum of all parts - from neck down. In fact, the neck is the only thing that didn't lose anything. The majority of my losses have been in my tummy (4.5 inches) and my hips (5 inches). Granted, they need to lose the most!! HA!

All in all - four months out - I love my band!!
