Adjustment + Weigh In + NSV :)

09/07/2012 Pre-Op Appointment Weight:  344.0

12/13/2012 Adjustment Weight:  290.0

Today's Adjustment Weight:  282.5

Total Loss: 61.5 pounds!!!!!!

Well, my PA who does my adjustments was pleased that I lost 7.5 pounds over the holidays.  And, small non-scale victory...since I've lost weight and have less stomach fat, they've switched to using the 2 inch needle (as opposed to that 3.5 inch needle)!  Yeah!

Side Note:  If you have a problem with needles, this is likely not the Weight Loss Surgery for you. 


  1. Congrats!!! Good call mentioning the needle thing. I can imagine someone going into this thinking it will be great until they remember they have to be stuck every time they need a fill. Luckily I'm good with needles...I don't even need a sucker afterwards :)

  2. Congratulations!!! That is amazing!

  3. oooh I have a major needle fobia but I was so determined this surgery was better suited for me than the bypass, I did not freak out during my fill so maybe it´ll help with this phobia. Congrats on the loss

    1. That's great! I have a friend who has a serious needle phobia. She usually passes out when getting her flu shot. She and I have the same Doctor/PA team so I have heard about her bad experiences from both ends. And since our doctor likes us to get fills every 4 weeks, that's a lot of needle sticking!

  4. Needles. Yuck. But congrats hun! So proud of you :-)

  5. Congrats on the loss! you look great!
