I'm Obese.... YAYYYY!

WHY is that exciting, you might ask yourself?

Because I'm no longer Morbidly Obese.  I've finally hit that 39.9 BMI!  My starting BMI was 50.8.  I've dropped over 10 points on the chart in 8 months :)

At the Doctor today, I weighed in at 270.5.  That's a 1.9 pound decrease since Tuesday, so that is good news. 

The bad news is that I may have overdid it today at the Dr.  He finally complied with my request to give me a bigger fill.  He added 1.4 CC's to my band and it is TIGHT.  I came to work and was starving, so I took 2 bites of my Fage with Honey (typical post-adjustment meal) and they came right back up.  Currently even tiny sips of my Gatorade have me feeling uncomfortable.  Hopefully this is just some swelling from the adjustment and I'll be back to "normal" by tomorrow. 

What is "normal" these days anyway?


  1. wow that was an aggressive fill...I would definitely stick to protein shakes, broth for a couple days--Good Luck! and congrats on the loss

  2. Very aggressive fill! Just stay proactive and make sure if you are too tight, to get some out!

  3. Hope your fill relaxes a bit! But that is WONDERFUL about being simply "obese" now...something about that word..."morbidly". UGH *shudder*

    Congratulations!!!! :)

  4. I totally get it. I look forward to that day - but mine is quite down the road. Keep up the great work.

  5. I remember being excited when I was no longer morbidly obese (or death fat as I prefer, because both terms are ludicrous). Yay us!

  6. Thats a big fill! I hope it calms down. I remember crossing that threshold from morbidly obese to obese! What a great moment! Congrats to you!!
