How I'm Doing So Far

Check out my ticker

You see that?!?! I have officially lost 101.6 pounds. HOLY CRAPOLA PEOPLE!!!!!! 101.6lbs in 9 months, one week and 2 days. I say it again. HOLY CRAPOLA!

I also have changed my ticker to reflect the revised goal weight of 150. As of this morning's weigh in I was .8 away from meeting the original goal of 160. I'm feeling good about the decision to go lower. We changed the goal when it was determined that I was 5' 4.5 and not 5' 5.5 as I'd thought when I started the process.

This feels good. No... this feels amazing!

Three girlfriends and I are off to Long Island April 1 for a long weekend getaway.... Of course I have no bathing suits so I splurged an treated myself last week... I bought a hot pink tankini with coordinating sheer beach coverup and a black and white bikini with boy short bottoms.... I figure I need coverage on either the top or the bottom... i had always said that even with the weight loss this body was not ready for a bikini... but when i tried on one-piece suits they just made me look short and squat!

In honour of my 100lb milestone I will post a pic of me before... and one of me in one of the new its of beach attire.... as soon as I get a photo taken, that is

Wow Island Bandit!! You have done such an awesome job! I have been banded much longer than you and have only lost a little over half of what you have!! You rock!

And thank you for your comment on my blog about the Acid Reflux. The Gaviscon sounds great! Sounds like they work faster than the Tums I have been using. Do they taste ok??? I'm one of those people that if it doesn't taste ok, I won't take them!! I know, I know, so juvenile!!

I can totally relate to the not tasting good thing... It's not juvenile... it's being old enough to know you have an option! lol

I got the mint chewable gaviscon tabs and they're a bit chalky but generally ok. i think i saw online another flavour chewables, but haven't seen them in the store here.
there's also liquid, but i didn't find that worked as quickly or as well. i have one BEFORE i eat if I'm feeling 'sour' and irritated... that way it coats the stoma before the food goes down.

Hope they work for you!
