BettyBoo: LapBand Surgery 10/17/09
Had lapband surgery Oct 20, 2009 (NeWeigh, Dr. Said Bina, Houston, TX).
Weight before surgery: 269. I have lost 50 lbs.
I was wearing a size 24. Presently in a size 18 ? 20.
I have not had any problems whatsoever. Have not had any problems with any food. My band is just a little over 7cc.
I am able to eat small meals and still enjoy (ex: 1 taco and 1 Tbsp. of brown rice).
I order a child's plate whenever I go out for dinner, which is not often.
I love to cook and try different recipes. Therefore I prepare my lunch and snacks daily for work.
I freeze portion size containers/seal a meal and just pull out of the freezer for dinner after a long day at work or if I do not feel up to cooking.
By doing this, it keeps me away from fast food places.
I attend support groups when applicable.
I'm very happy with the weight that I have lost. Just the right pace.
I have had to completely re-group on my wardrobe (alternations are to expensive).
Found several very NICE re-sale shops in my hometown. (best way to go for now).
Only thing, I need to exercise (not one of my favorite past time).
