Weekly Weigh In: Week 17 (Wedding Week)

Weight: 173.0 lbs     Loss 2lbs

Wow! What a week! I just woke up to say a quick hi. I had my big wedding I was planning yesterday. It was a perfect day. The Bride was so happy with everything, and I had a blast. I will post more soon. 

Can't believe I managed to lose some weight this week. I haven't exercised in so long. I miss it a lot.

My band is pretty tight, and haven't been able to eat much of anything. I had ONE bite of chicken last night at the wedding, and then I was standing over the bushes for 15 min trying to throw it up (as the toasts were going on......people....the toasts took AN HOUR!) It never came up but after some good burps and a some fun sliming I could at least get on with my life.

I am so looking forward to spending some time with my babies and hubby today! Pumpkin picking!!! Two more week before they leave. I can't even wrap my head around it!

Hope you all are doing great!


  1. Congrats on the loss! Glad the wedding went well.

  2. 2 pounds! Yay! You are kicking booty!!!

  3. I'm pre-band, waiting for a surgery date...and I have to admit that this post scares me a little. Throwing up in the bushes? Can't swallow one single bite of chicken? While I'm happy for you that you lost weight, this has got me this realistically what I should expect will happen for me? Is this your norm with the band or a sign that it's too tight? I'm getting so nervous...

  4. Melissa...tried to email you but couldn't access your profile. band is prob too tight, maybe cause of the last fill and maybe because of the stress of the wedding and move.
    My back teeth are also in need of some serious root canals so I prob don't chew my food enough cause my teeth are sensitive. I've noticed I only get stuck with drier chicken and meat and if I'm rushing. Don't freak out! You will be smarter than me hopefully and get an UN-fill before too many problems came up!

  5. Stace you're doing so well - hard luck on the bush scenario at the wedding! Hope you get to see the dentist soon about your back teeth!

  6. Ouch - the bush thing doesn't sound good AT. All... But glad you're losing - and looking forward to spending wonderful time with your family before "the move" - stay strong!
