Celebrating the Big 5-0 (Week 29)

You're right, I'm so not talking about my age! Finally, after 29 weeks banded, I am celebrating the wonderful SV of having lost 50 pounds. The scale this morning read...


213.6, people! That puts me at 50.8 lbs down from the date of surgery, 65.4 from my highest ever and a lovely 4.4 down from last week's weigh in! I'm super excited. I go for my next appointment in a little over two weeks and I definitely feel I can reach my goal of 210 by then. And since we're talking about goals, my birthday is the 19th of April and my goal is to be in Onederland by that date. That's something I haven't seen on the scale in just about twelve years, so I'm really hoping this will be the year that I'll celebrate that victory. 


In other, non-band-related news, Ben and I got to pick up our pottery from our anniversary extravaganza. I love my vase. Here's a picture of it with the flowers that Ben brought home for me on Valentine's Day :)


Love it!

Anyway, sorry I haven't been commenting much. I've been reading, I promise, it's just there's always something going on with school. It's been a rough semester, but so far, so good. Actually I've got to go take an online quiz now, so I'm going to end it here. Hope everyone's having a great week!

xoxo
