It's been a little over a month and a half since I had my lapband surgery. So far I've lost 31 pounds. I've been averaging about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds per week. I'd like to lose the weight a little faster but according to experts that is a good rate of loss.
I thought it was about time to show a couple of pictures. The first picture is from February 17th, when my mouth was ablaze with the cold sores.
This second picture is from March 22. You can notice a difference, even though it is a small difference, but there is a difference!
I go for my first "fill" this Friday. That is where the band is filled with a saline solution to tighten it. I can tell it's time to get it done because I've actually been getting hungry between meals.
Little by little it's happening!
