25 Pounds Down and a NSV!

Today was my weigh in day and I have officially lost 25 lbs!! I am very happy with that number. It's pretty good progress for 8 weeks out (since I started the pre-op diet). The jeans and work pants are getting loose too.

Also, my first NSV....two separate people today (who don't know about my band) asked if I have lost weight. People are starting to notice.....yay!

By the way, my BMI is now 39.5, so I am no longer "morbidly obese"...but rather "very obese". I'll take it!


  1. Yayyyyyyyy 25 pounds down is awesome. Come on down the next 25!!!

  2. Wonderful news! Congratulations on a great job... hope you are feeling very good from this accomplishment.

  3. Congratulations!! All the hard work is paying off!

  4. Congrats on kissing that morbidly obese label good bye forever! You have done great!

  5. funny how we can look forward to being 'just' obese! heehee
    CONGRATS at the 25! you'll be saying goodbye to the next 25 before you know it!!

  6. Wow Lap Band Gal, You are doing FANTASTIC.

  7. Wow, 25 lbs - that is great, congrats! I was also banded on the 20th, however I have not lost quite as much as you! I see that you are close to reaching your third goal, keep up the good work and it will be here before you know it :)
