50 lbs down! It feels awesome.
I am a week away from being banded 4 months and I am just so thankful for this tool!

The last couple weeks have been rough living with this band but I wouldn't change a thing. The real stress of my lay off started to sink in and then the loss of my Brother-in-law, travel...ugggh! It really impacted my restriction. I've been better since my slight un-fill and decided not to get any more at my appointment last Monday. Currently I am at 7.8cc's in my Realize band.
 Thank you everyone for your honest blogs and for posting the good and the bad of this journey we are all on!


  1. Great job with your 50lbs. We are about at the same place. I am sorry to hear about your lay off and your loss. I am new to your blog so welcome. I look forward to following you on your journey.

  2. Jen,
    That is like the BEST news ever!!! Congrats darl - and you should be commended for realising you needed an un-fill instead of suffering though it.

  3. Wow Jen, that is FANTASTIC weight loss and is a great payoff for your hard work and listening to your body.
    Sorry about your recent loss, hopefully you are surrounded by a good support network.
    Many things to give thanks for during this holiday and family and memories are but a few precious things we can embrace.

  4. Congrats, what an awesome accomplishment!

  5. Yeah for you!! I can't wait to hit the big 5-0! Congrats!!

  7. That is so exciting! You have much to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Jen - CONGRATULATIONS!!!! 50 pounds woo hoo!

  9. Yea! So glad you are doing so well -- so sorry about the other set backs, though.
