Only a Bandster Knows What It's Like to Celebrate Being Overweight

Had my third fill on Thursday. I've been stuck with no weight loss for about a month, which was fine, but I was hungry and thinking about food all of the time so decided a fill was in order. Crossing my fingers, but I think it might do the trick. He has me at about 4.5 cc's now. I'll tell you, this fill actually hurt a little only because my port is so much more sensitive now without the extra fat padding (not that it still doesn't have plenty) and his prodding around to find the right spot before he needled me was youchy! I was a bit of a baby.

I am, as we speak, trying to eat my first solid post-fill (my protein bar). It seems to be going down well, so yay!

I'm down to 177, a 4 lb loss in two days from the liquid diet post-fill. I know it's water weight but I have a new low nonetheless. And I've finally reached my next mini-goal: I'm overweight, not obese!!!

Now I just need to set my next goal. I'm 27 lbs away from my initial goal weight (150), though I've decided I might want to adjust my ultimate goal weight to 140 instead. That's still a little far off to be used as my next weight-loss goal though. Maybe I'll work in 10 lb increments from here out? That seems more achievable.


  1. Congratulations on being so close to goal! I have been gaining and losing the same 3-5 lbs now since March and it is so frustrating. I am trying to refocus and hopefully it will work. Back to basics for me!!

  2. Yay to being overweight! Well done you :)

  3. Yay for overweight!! I get your message, and I'm thrilled for you!!

  4. I hope to celebrate being overweight some day! You're INSPIRING!!

  5. Congratulations on reaching your overweight goal :o)

    10 lbs sounds reasonable to me, that way you have smaller goals to celibrate along the way and don't get too overwelmed with the overall picture.

  6. Go Girl!!!!
