8 month bandiversary *edited*

8 months ago today, I had lap band surgery...

It's been an amazing ride of ups and downs, but overall I am glad I made the decision to get healthy and lose weight.

I still have about 28 lbs left to lose to get to my goal weight of 140lbs (116 lbs lost).  I know I can do it!

Here are some photos from day of surgery (10/20/09). I stayed overnight in the hospital.

I can't believe that I have never shared these pics with you guys!  Hopefully this doesn't scare any soon-to-be bandsters out there :)

Immediately post-op:

High as a kite on pain meds:
