Happy 2013/Weigh in Wednesday


As far as Weigh in Wednesday goes, I haven't a lot to report.  I have maintained since my last weigh in and am still at 60.2 total pounds lost.  I won't complain considering during the time since I last weighed, I celebrated Christmas with too much food and New Year with too much alcohol, so maintaining isn't the worst thing that could've happened.

The New Year began great.  I went out for dinner with some friends at a Japanese Grill on New Year's Eve.  When I asked to order off of the Children's menu, the waitress first said no, so I decided I'd play the surgery card.  Her response was that if I'd had WLS I should carry a card with me to show when ordering off the children's menu.  Has anyone else been told this?  Odd.  Anyway, she let me order this one time without a card, and my bill was $6.50 and still had plenty of leftovers for at least 2 more meals.  The best part is that the same meal would've cost me $20 had I not gotten the kid's portion.  Guess I will email my surgeon's office or wait until I go in for my adjustment next week.

After dinner I went to a hotel event/party.  There was a group of 10 of us, including the guy I have been seeing since the beginning of December.  I did not end up wearing the purple dress because I just felt that it was too short and I would feel uncomfortable.  Here are a few new pics from the NYE celebration and NYE dress shopping...

My younger cousin was my first "kiss" of my date and her husband had disappeared somewhere at midnight.

I found this gem of a dress while I was NYE dress shopping.  It was too small (a regular size L) but it was $4 and I knew I'd be fitting in it soon.  It is backless...can't wait to be able to wear it in public!!! 


  1. Happy New Year, Hollee! It's sure to be a great one for you as you continue on your banded journey :)

    My surgeon's practice handed me a card while I was in the hospital post-op for any restaurant ordering issues. Glad that the waitress gave you the option, but hope she wasn't too snarky about it. Good for you for sticking to your guns!

  2. Happy New Year! I love ordering kid's meals! I have a card that was given to me after surgery, but I've never actually has anyone ask me to see it.

  3. I emailed my surgeon's office and they said they are going to send me a card in the mail. I guess I will just use the email until that card arrives if I get asked again. Thanks ladies!!

  4. My surgeon gave me a card too!! Its the size of a business card!

  5. Hi Hollee! I just started following you and started my own Lap Band blog on Monday. I am meeting with my surgeon soon to hopefully put it on the excited I can't think about practically anything else! Just wanted to say I loved reading about your a Size 26 myself, it's amazing to see how you've progressed. It serves as an awesome motivator for me! Keep up the good look wonderful :)
