How I'm Doing So Far

Cover Girl - pics included and weigh in update

Well not quite, but I'm one of the patients being featured in a local lapband commercial campaign!!

Yesterday we did the first part of the shoot and i think it went well. Helps that I have a background in television news and so am used to and comfortable being on camera. We have a couple more shots to get today and again on Tuesday and then the editor gets to do his magic.

Here's what he had to work with!



I got to go have my makeup professionally done for the shoot - there's no way I could apply makeup that would look right under the glare of television lights. This afternoon I have to get it done again before heading to my surgeon's office.

I already had an appt for a top up (re-fill) so they'll get the shots of me with him at the same time.

Not sure if I need to go back up to 6cc, but definitely need more. I am quite sure that if I allowed myself to, that i could eat way more than 1cup in a single sitting. in fact at some of the various parties and get togethers i've been to over the past 2 weeks i am quite sure that i have scarfed down more than a cup's worth of appetizers at a time.

I'm also feeling hungry a lot more and certainly sooner after i've eaten than i should.

So I know a fill is in order.... just not sure how much to go for. I guess we'll go up to 6cc and i will try drinking and see how that feels. 6cc worked fine for me for quite a while and it was only after a few pb episodes that it must have gotten irritated and tightened up that I had problems and had to have 1cc removed.

Will update on the fill situation later.

Oh... and since I've gotten the eating, exerising and weight thing under control already, my New Year's Resolution clearly needs to be blogging more consistently!

*******UPDATE********
went to weigh in this morning so that i could drink lots before my fill this afternoon and not see the water on the scale.... down 2.6lbs to 184. Christmas weight is gone baby!

WOW!!! You are looking amazing! In response to your question on my blog, yep, I am at my goal weight now of 145-ish lbs. At 5'4", I am feeling pretty good at this weight.

You look HOT! I love that outfit you have on, and you are just gorgeous (with and without professional makeup)! That is awesome on the commercial. You will have to post a link to it when it is done.
