How did I let it happen? How did I wake up one day to find myself at 286 pounds and completely miserable in my own body? It happened, I can't blame anyone but me. And only I can fix it. So I am. On December 23, 2009 I had Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. John Marsden. I'm down 100 pounds so far with about 25 to go.

Day 2, Yahoo!

Day 1 went better than I could have hoped! I'm so happy!! Today's weight: 185.6. And here are some stats from yesterday:

Calories Burned
Goal: 2250
Actual: 2222 (A little less than goal, but not much!)

Calories Consumed
Goal: 1500
Actual: 1442

Calorie Deficit
Goal: 750
Actual: 780

Goal 4000
Actual: 4241

Goal: 30 Minutes
Actual: 42 Minutes

I could not be more pleased! And as you can tell, the number on the scale showed it this morning. I am also off to a great start again today. I have my meals planned out with a little wiggle room left over for a snack or 2 if I need it. I am going walking during lunch again today, not sure where. Went to Target yesterday - got 3 new shirts, a dress and a pair of shoes! Awesome huh?

Support group last night was awesome! There were several new people there, including a couple of girls who haven't yet been banded but are going through the process with their insurance. We have a couple of girls who are a few months out and a guy who has been banded for about 3 weeks, so yay! I love my support group and was so glad I got to go last night. It gave me the extra motivation I needed to do this challenge.

Make it a great day everyone!


  1. Great job Debi!! You have this challenge in the bag.

  2. you are kicking azz!!!

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. It means more than you know. (both comments! :)

  3. You're a weight-loss rockstar. It's amazing how quickly we can lose when we really stick with the plan, isn't it? :) Those calorie deficits are amazing. I have no idea what mine are. Eek!

    So tell me about this GUY at the support group, was he cute? Young? Unmarried? Send him my way. LOL

  4. You are inspiring me right now so much I can't even tell you. Exercise is such a crutch for me and when I don't have it (no true exercise Sunday-Wednesday this week), I tend to let it all go. YOU are inspiring me to stay on track.

    Tomorrow morning, I will wake up and it will be 7 Days to Vegas. One day at a time!!
