Can You Guess How Many Weigh-ins I've Shared With You?

I began my weight loss journey back in August 2009 with my very first weigh-in at 258lbs.

Today is my 260th Friday weekly weigh-in.

That's a lot of weeks.

Each and every Friday.

Yep, almost FIVE years of weigh-ins posted here on the interwebs for your viewing pleasure.

That's what I call accountability.

Today's weight: 141.8 lbs. 

Still below my goal weight of 145 lbs.

Accountability is one of the secrets to my success with the Lap-Band.

Maybe I should do a blog post with a list of my ultimate top five secrets to my success with my Lap-Band? 

I will totally share my success secrets with you...'cuz we're BFFs...right?


  1. Yes! That would be a great blog. Include secrets to maintenance, as I am only 25 pounds away from goal. Maintenance to me is scarier than losing weight.

  2. I think it would be a great idea to do a book about several long time post-ops that have maintained. I know accountability certainly works for me. Congrats on your 260th Friday!

  3. Yes! Spill those secrets!!

  4. Got banded 5days ago. 12lbs down. Dont want to rush or skin to sag im 242 goal weight 145! Any tips

  5. I can't wait until I can say the same!

  6. Hey Girl! I am back… and with a vengeance and new motivation to turn myself around. I live a lot closer to you nowadays (Southwest) and will hopefully begin checking in more frequently. New lease on lap band with an new surgeon and ONWARD.

  7. The doctor would explain about the various surgeries that can be done to your stomach to remove excess weight. Gastric bypass, gastric band and gastric sleeve are the three types of surgical weight loss options. Though the end result of the surgery is one and the same, the process, procedure and the percentage of weight reduction is different among all these surgical methods. Famous female surgeon Dubai
