Its been 5 days since my fill...I did my normal Saturday weigh in and to my surprise I weighed in at 248!! Im finally back in the 240's!! in my 20's the highest weight I would get to is 242 before I would start bustin butt and lose weight. The 240's is familiar ground to me..if that makes sense. I remember when I first got banded that getting back down to 240 felt like it was soooo far away but Im here now! I ALMOST feel like I can exhale now...I know I wrote this before but on the way up the scale from 245-300 over the past couple of years I never saw the 250's, 260's, or 270's its like i jumped from 245 to 280 overnight...even though it was 2 years. I was so engrossed in becoming a new mother, my son was so demanding, I was working full time and still trying to be there emotionally and mentally for my husband extended family that I didn't pay any attention to me and taking care of my needs or my body for that matter. I am hoping that 4 months from now Im saying the same thing about the 220's!! Its hard to believe that I actually could possibly get to 200lbs or less!! I have not seen 200lbs since I was 22 yrs old! and I havn't seen below 200 since maybe 9th grade! I never thought I would say this but I really missed you 240!!!!
