Got a small adjustment fill today.

DR. added just .25cc... I was hoping for .5cc. I can go back in for a free fill in two weeks and get another.25cc if I still think I need it. On liquids today and I'll see how this week goes.

Bummer news is that they upped the cost for my fill. Use to be $75.00, it's now $97.50. Geez, thanks for keeping it under$100.00 by .50 cents. sigh. Oh well.. it could be a lot worse.

5lbs of fat...

Carin, my awesome kickboxing instructor, brought in 5 lbs of fat. Using my crappy camera phone I snapped a photo of me (post workout) holding up that nasty 5lbs of fat.

DID I REALLY have almost 17 of these puppies layered on my body?


By the way... I saw 229 on my scale this morning. That's 84lbs if anyone is counting... I am!!! LOL!

Life is good.

Instead of going to the gym today I figured I would break out of the house with the kiddos and take advantage of some warmer temperatures. (high 30's)

I had my 7 year old on his bike and my 3 year old on his big wheel. It might be hard to imagine but my three year old can pick up some speed on that big wheel of his. I walked when he was moving slow and ran when he was movin fast. It was a pretty delightful 30 mins.

What I realized is that last summer I couldn't have done this. I would have been dying to keep up with a fast movin three year old. But today, I kept wishin he would keep it up. In fact, a few times I ran past him and tried to coax him during his slower moments.

I love moments like this:
When I realize, that I AM a better, more fun mom... 83 lbs lighter.

This is one of the reason's I opted for Lap-Band. So that I wouldn't miss out on life anymore. This summer I am going to try out one of my goals... I am going to slide down the slide at the park. I don't want to be the mom who just watches anymore. I want to enjoy this small moment in my life. When I have these beautiful little boys to run and play with.

Life is good.

80 lb lost - PICTURES!!!

Click on the photos to see them bigger.

Here they are!!! The long awaited pictures... took me long enough. Here I am in all my glory... still got a booty on me but "I like big butts" is my theme song. LOL!

Fun facts: was size 28 pants (although I didn't want to admit it) current: size 20 (it's that booty) Shirt size: was 24-26 (3xl) current: 16-18 (XL/L) Bra size: well lets just say that the "girls" are holding up, just at a smaller size (husband isn't complaining yet) ; )

I couldn't see a huge difference in my look for the longest time... but it's pretty obvious now. So glad I have these photos. : )
