Ok well I'm down two more pounds in less than a week...I don't think I'll hit my goal of 265 by the wedding day since I'll be in my home town which means so much bad food I'll probably gain two or three pounds after this wedding weekend! Oh well! But on a great note I went for my bridesmaid dress fitting on saturday and they had to bring the dress in by 4 inches! Can you believe it! I put the dress on and asked my sister to zip it up, she walked away and I said to her "I asked you to zip it up!" and she said wait for it wait for it lol "It is! It doesn't fit you its way too big!" Can you believe it they measured me and I lost 5 inches in my Boobie area and I lost 2 inches on my waist and 1 inch off my bootie! The seamstress told me that I was one of the only bridesmaids she has seen loose this much weight, usually its the brides who loose the weight. I was so happy! Again it makes me dream about what it will be like 2 months, and then 6 months and then a year! I think I might hit my goal way before I expect too. I was shooting for being 100 lbs down from my starting weight within a year, but I'm already almost 20lbs with no band! Oh and I just received my first grade from graduate school.... A! Oh yeah lol it was a hard course and I expect it to get much harder, but I'm off to a good start! Well I'm going to get back to work! So much to do before my trip! AHHHH!

Something is better than nothing!

Well I dropped 4lbs in two weeks. I think that's pretty good taking into consideration I've been making very bad decisions on meals when it comes to the weekend. I can't wait until I have the band so I have restriction and not feel so hungry! Now I must start watching my intake and working out hard as my cousin's wedding is next Saturday I want to drop another 2 or 3 lbs by next week so that the dress will fit a little loose. I have my fitting tomorrow and I hope it fits! I was measured when I was 16lbs heavier so I hope that makes a difference in the dress. It would be great to be 20lbs down from where I was the last time my cousin saw me. She lives in New York, I live in California and her wedding is in our hometown El Paso, TX. She saw me at my heaviest 285lbs (I don't think I've mentioned my weight here before...WEIRD) and now I'm at 269lbs. I can't help but be very excited about the band and my future weightloss, I keep thinking if I can have this will power now with no help IMAGINE what I can achieve when I have the surgery! I hope by my surgery date AUGUST 24TH I will be in the 250 range whether it be high or low 250's it doesnt matter. I just think starting off at 250 gets me that much closer to being 199 by New Year's! Have a great weekend everyone!

Surgery Date!

I HAVE MY SURGERY DATE! August 24th! I should be upset that its so far away, but I'm just happy! Happy that this life long battle with no assistance is coming to an end! Plus the more I thought about it the better the day sounded. I am extremly busy at work and it will slow down around the first week of August, I'm getting used to going to graduate school full time and working full time so by August I should be better adjusted and I'm my cousin's maid of honor for her wedding this summer so I was worried the surgery would come right before or during the wedding. Bummer that the surgery is a week after my birthday, but its just a late birthday present. My doctor said I could get off the protein diet and start it again July 12th (1 month before my pre-op appointment), but I decided I'm going to stick to it, but cheat a lil. The shakes fill me up for breakfast and lunch, and dinner I'm getting used to eating a smaller meal. But I'm so going to get in some bad carbs here and there before July 12th and maybe a margarita or two :). My goal for my August pre-op date is to be 15lbs lighter than I am today...I might only be 10lbs, but you never know!
