one week

As the Bare Naked Ladies say "Its been one week since you looked at me, Cocked your head to the side and said" you're banded!

What a week. Three days of pain meds, 2 days of tylenol, 1 day at work! - Well maybe 2 days at work if I can make it out of the house today.

I was so excited yesterday when I stepped on the scale and it read 300.0 lbs. Who the heck is excited to see 300.0 - well that would be someone who has been over 300 lbs since about 1/2 way through pregnancy which was in June 2008!! That means that in my one week of clear liquids I have lost 15lbs.

WOOHOO - be gone with you. No more 15lbs of weight dragging me down. Look at all the extra ribs I was carrying around!

Another reason to be happy today?


I was so ecstatic this morning that I made tomato soup for breakfast. Talk about tastey. So flavorful, so creamy  and it's just plain old Campbell's Tomato Soup. It really was mmm mmm good. Took me about 30 mins to finish this one little mug of soup. What a difference a week makes!!

I think I will take a can to work so I can have it for lunch as well. That is, if I actually get my rear in gear and head to work.

Have a great Friday everybody!


  1. Oh no, I remember being psyched when I went below 300 lbs and I didn't even have a good reason to be there-- like a child!

    And now you're on full liquids, fun! My favourite full liquid is V-8 with freshly grated ginger or horseradish, fresh pepper, worcestershire and hot sauce. Those were so refreshing.

    If you do make it into work, have a great day. If not, rest up :-)

  2. My fav full liquid was cream of chicken soup with cheese on top (it melts okay...so it's a liquid!) Oh it was like heaven! And I too was so damn excited to see 300! Although, I will not be excited if I ever see it again. BUT I WONT!

  3. I went from light liquids to heavier liquids and like you, I got a lotta love from the tomato soup: I can still remember the feeling when I was trying to get it down, and couldn't drink it all. It was an amazing feeling!

  4. oh my gosh you sound just like me....a few days ago I posted that I reached 225lbs and about how thrilled I was and then I was like "and who gets excited about 225lbs!" lol I had so many people tell me how excited they will be when they get there!!!!

    You must feel amazing seeing the 300 on the scale! I am so happy for you! I look forward to following your journey!


  5. Well hello there! I too remember both the horror of realizing I weighted over 300 and then the joy at getting back below it again. Congrats on both your surgery and moving up to full liquids. I had a really hard time on them! I didnt find smoothies until after I was on food again but my favorite now is 1/2 strawberries, 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein, 1/2c milk whirred up in the blender. Yummy and full of protein.

  6. Congratulations-- celebrate your success while looking forward (don't bash yourself in any way !! It is a waste of energy.)
