performance: losing 1.5 lb a week
I am a 37 year old married mom of 3 kids. I've struggled with my weight all of my life, and looking back I see that my weight and size were just right for me years ago. I'm short and stocky, so at 5'0", 130 to 135 lbs was my "healthy" weight that I maintained for many years. I thought I was just HUGE in a size 7!
My highest weight was 215. I had LapBand surgery on 11/24/2010 and lost 50 pounds by my anniversary date. As of today, I have have about 36 pounds left to reach my goal. I have lost the majority of my weight since finally getting to a good amount of fill in my band (9.6 cc currently).
I'm finally at a weight where exercise is much easier than before. I mainly take walks with little bits of jogging/running, and now my husband has even joined me on the health wagon (finally!). We have added juicing to our daily routine, using organic veggies and fruits as much as possible, and we are adding more activities to our day to get off the couch and out of the house.
So far, so good...looking forward to when I can say I'm a size 7 again! It is right around the corner, lurking over there by bikini season!
