I have lost 35 pounds since May 18th which was the first visit to the Lap Band Surgeon. A part of me can't believe I have lost the weight. I still see myself at my heaviest. I can tell my clothes are not fitting like before. So, I had a "moment" last night during my restless, sleepless night of laying in bed where I asked myself "why am I having surgery if I can lose the weight"? OH YEAH! This has kicked my butt. Not to mention I can never keep the weight off.
Ron and I went shopping the other day at Lane Bryant, there was a dress I really wanted that was a size smaller than what I normally wear. I thought that dress would look really cute in Vegas next month. I didn't purchase it. However, I kept thinking about how I wanted that dress so I went and bought it. Went to my moms and it slid right on. Yay! for me. Then I get home and try it on, it looks sloppy it is definitely too big. The dress has a side zipper and it just slipped right on, obviously its too big. It will be going back to the store. :)
This morning, I reached in to my bra drawer and pulled out an old bra that didn't fit. Guess what??? I am wearing it and it is super comfy. Granted the price I am paying for this bra is smaller boobs. lol
Yes! this is really happening to me. I am stunned and amazed at the same time. Amazed I can lose the weight. Stunned that I gained the weight i just lost in a 2 year period.
My thoughts on all of this... I have definitely made the right decision to have surgery.
Have a great day all!
