This is Hawaii exactly two years ago. I was 30 lbs heavier than I am now. I REALLY wanted to lose weight for this trip because we booked a helicopter ride over the volcano, and I was SUPER worried about having to weigh before getting on. I was so used to being thinner and this was the first time I could sometimes feel the weight again. It was either this trip or surgery... I'm glad I took the trip.
Anyway, clearly... the band and I failed each other. Sooooo... I'm now the bandless-babe. Almost seven weeks ago (June 16, 2018) I had my lapband removed (hooray!) and converted to a duodenal switch (hooray, I think!). Blogging after my lapband helped me through a major transition period in my life, and I think this is another massive transition time for me. I'm here again, not sure what to make of a lot of things, and maybe this will help as I transition to the band-less (and soon to be boob-less) babe.
