5 Month Bandiversary

Today is my five month bandiversary!  This has been a great month!  I weighed myself this morning and as of today I have lost 55 pounds!  It's meant to be.  Haha!

It seems like after I came back from vacation, I've had a hard time getting back into my routine of good eating habits.  I let myself slack some while I was out of town and it seems like it's been harder to get back into the swing of things.  I've still been losing weight and haven't been going crazy, but I need to start eating some more nutritious foods.  

I've noticed more changes in activities that I've been able to do.  Just simple things that I would have a hard time doing or get all sweaty are easy for me now.  My clothes are getting looser and looser.  It's so fun to see the changes in your body and just your health in general.  

I'm still at the same fill level that I've been for a couple months (6cc's in my 10cc band).  For now, I think that's a good level for me, but we'll just take it week by week and see how it goes. 

I also gained the added support of having my sister going through the lap-band journey with me.  I couldn't be more excited for her and it's nice to have the extra accountability and support, in addition to the amazing community that is here on the blogs!

Each month I measure my neck, bicep, forearm, chest, waist, hips, thigh, and calf.  This month I lost 5.25 inches for a total loss of 34 inches since the beginning of my weight loss journey.  

My BMI has gone from 47 to 37!  YAY!

I couldn't be more excited to see how far I've come and can't wait to keep losing pounds and inches!!!
