Weigh IN Wednesday

Happy Hump Day! I am so glad we are 1/2 through the week and coming up on a 3 day weekend :)

This weeks weigh in results are....1.1 lb this week ( lower than Id like to see but Ive had 2 real big weeks and coming up on TOM so Ill take it)
Brings me to something else I have debated in my head for the past week.. When am I going to be brave enough to share my weight with you guys instead of just the "lose numbers".. I mean you are all here for support and bc you care or else why would you read ...Plus most of us are in the same boat right. Then I thought well when I do post my weight I will just post current then if someone really feels the need to see what I started at they can do the math backwards... WELL today I am feeling the need to be open and honest with you all as well as myself... My name is Christy, I am 33 yrs old 5' 6.5" my  starting weight was 273( gulp).. surgery was 259.8 today was 231.3 my goal weight is 145 ( I don't have myself on a time table for this goal, just at a consistent/healthy speed) I am currently 32% of the way to my goal weight HOW COOL IS THAT!!!! I AM 7 WKS POST OP! I LOVE MY BAND, I LOVE THIS DECISION, I AM DOING EVERYTHING IN MY POWER TO REGAIN MY HEALTH, I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY!!!!!

I had a HUGE NSV last night... I battle High BP and I say battle b/c for me it is, even on meds it runs 140/80 to 150/90 ( I take 2 meds every day for this) Day of surgery they almost would not let me leave the hospital bc it was so hi... my hubby had to get firm with them, he said look you told her not to take her meds today, she has not had any since last night we are almost 24 hr out since her last dose what do you expect it to look like...
Last night it was 122/68 this is the lowest Ive seen it look like in years....I really hope this is a trend and not a fluke, regardless I am claiming it as a NSV anyways LOL....

My mom is coming by this weekend to help me with my measurements (its so much easier with an extra set of hands) so I will post them this weekend. But since surgery I have dropped from size 20 to 16 so I know I am

Thank you to ea one of you that reads my blogg and offers your support you will never know how much your kind words mean. You are all a great support.


  1. Congratulations to you Christy. It took me a few months to post my weight. And it's so freeing isn't it?! Just think, you started almost at where I CURRENTLY am. Don't worry about the numbers, you are going to get to where you want to be!

    1. Thanks Hollee it is pretty freeing.. :)
