8 Month Bandiversary

My eight month bandiversay on the 27th came and went while I was out of town and I completely forgot about it!  So here is my 8 month post.  I made a promise to myself that I would at least blog about my weight loss once a week and about my bandiversary once a month if nothing else.  So I don't want to miss a post.

Obviously January was a hard month with being out of town for 3 weeks.  It started off really strong with my 2012 goals and just having a lot of motivation in general.  I don't think that motivation has gone away and I am still determined as ever, but being out of my environment definitely made things more difficult.

I didn't take measurements for this month, and since we're already halfway into my 9th month, I'll just have to report 2 months of measurements in my next post.

 I lost a total of 3 pounds this month which is actually better than I thought since I gained .2 over the three weeks I was out of town.

I am still thankful for the lap-band everyday!  The fact that I didn't gain over Christmas and being out of town for most of the month and still lost weight and got under 200 pounds is amazing and I couldn't be happier.

This was and is the best decision I have made for my life and my health and I can't wait to keep going!
