Week 11 & 12 Weigh-ins

Taking a break from studying for a bit, so I thought I'd jump on and update my progress and take a look at my friends blogs.

Week 11 = Gain (Boo) of 1.4 lbs. I was not a happy     camper.....BUT

Week 12 = Loss (Yay!) of 5 lbs! 

I am down 28 lbs. total and I am happy! Right now I'm averaging 2.3 lbs/week which is more than I've ever averaged in my life. I'm still not putting 100% into it, so to be losing at this point is great. School is HARD and most of my time is spent studying, reading, listening to lectures, and working. I feel like I don't have an extra minute to spare doing anything, much less exercising. I know I need to at least take a cruise around the block or something though. I need to make it a goal.........even if it's a few days a week. I need to start somewhere. 
My mom did some measurements on me and I have lost 6 inches in my waist!! Unbelievable!! I fit into a pair of jeans that I haven't worn in a LOOOOONG time, and now they're the only ones that don't look ridiculously baggy on me. I guess I'm still in shock that this little tool they call a Lap-Band is working for me! I can't believe I almost chickened out on the day of surgery! That would have just been plain silly!! I definitely have something to be thankful for this holiday season.....regaining my health. It's priceless.
