5 Weeks Post-Op Lap-Band Surgery and Down 19 pounds!

by Abbie Cote
(Sanford, ME)

I'm a Lap-Band Mom from Maine:

I started my weight loss surgery journey in September 2008. I had lap band surgery on December 8th, 2008. The surgery went very well and I felt great after surgery. I was walking around even at 4:30 am!

In September I was 270 pounds! That is how much I weighed in 2007 when I was 9 months pregnant with my son. When I went in for surgery on December 8th I weighed 238 pounds! I had lost 32 pounds on my own. As of today, January 12th, 2009, I am 5 weeks post op and I weigh 219.5 pounds!

I have lost a total of 51 pounds since September and 19 pounds since surgery (1 month.

I feel great! I go to the gym every other day and I have even signed up for a 3 mile run/walk to benefit breast cancer research in May.

Weight Loss Summary

September 2008: 270 pounds

December 2008 (surgery month): 239 pounds

January 12, 2008 (5 weeks post op): 219.5 pounds
