My first pics!!

I have been wanting to post some before pics and since my friends keep telling me my face is smaller, I will post an after. The first is my family at Disney in February and the second is me at the hospital clowning around. I was waiting to see my nephew that was just born. It was 9 days after my surgery!! Still have my fat rolls but even as critical as I am, I can tell a difference. Enjoy!!

Feeling great!!!

Hey all!! Hope you all are doing great!!! I am!! Went to my follow-up appointments with my nutritionist and surgeon. Both were happy with my 17lb progress!! I am on a high protein(60-80gm a day)diet for mow. I will get my first fill around May 21st, they just have to figure out when they can squeeze me in the schedule since my surgeon will be doing it!! He likes for you to eat solids for a few weeks to make sure you can get them down. I can, which kind of scared me at first, but I am still not having any tummy growling at all or sliming episodes! BUT.... if I eat to fast or overeat I will get an awful pain in my side, around where my stomach lives and I am miserable for an hour or so!!! Gotta chew, chew, chew, and eat slowwwww!!! Yesterday I went back down to my extra-large scrubs at work!!! Happy me!!! Also, I put on a pair of old navy capris I had when I met my husband and weighed less, and they fit!!!! So, I officially have NO REGRETS ABOUT LAP BAND SURGERY!!!! If I can be of help to anyone, let me know!!! Have a great rest of the week!!!
