Yesterday was mine and The Hubs 2nd Bandiversary!
I had really big plans for some huge celebratory post but I was too busy living me some life. I ended up having an awesome sushi lunch with one of my girlfriends, at our favorite Japanese restaurant. We even indulged in some daytime adult beverages (since it was her Spring Break)!!!!
My Band also decided after a few edamame and 2 pcs of tuna that it would slam shut for the day. It was kind of appropriate in a way --- what could be a better day to be so SUPER aware of my Band. I spent the rest of the evening slowly trying to coax down hot tea and Cup O Soup.
As I promised a couple weeks ago, I wanted to post my pre- surgery and current stats. So here 'ya go!
Pre-Surgery Current (3/2/2012)
Weight: 284 189 = 95 lbs lost
BMI: 48.8 32.4 = 16.4 BMI pts lost
Body Fat %: 52.1 34.8 = 17.3 pt reduction in Body Fat %
Fat Mass: 146.01 lbs 66.0 lbs
Fat Free Mass: 134 lbs 123 lbs
Total Body Water: 98. lbs 90 lbs
In the past 2 years, I have lost 33.5% of my starting body weight.
I didn't make my goal of losing 100 lbs by my Bandiversary but I am not too worried about it. I am not gonna let the 5 lbs I haven't lost yet overshadow the 95 lbs I have lost AND KEPT OFF!!!
I have, however, drastically changed my body composition and my fitness level.
I know this because of the numbers listed above and because even though the scale has hardly moved my clothes keep fitting better and I even managed to fit into my first size 12 pants recently.
Here are some befores and afters.

I wasn't able to get a full body shot of us on Saturday night (my friends were a little drinky faced and could quite grasp my reasoning for a full body pic).
This pic is from a couple weeks ago after my workout. It was one of those -- "I had to do a double take because I really couldn't believe that was me in the mirror" kind of moments.
|I puffy heart love the handicapped mirror in this bathroom-- such a kind and forgiving angle. |
So there you have it my obligatory Bandiversary post. I have more things tumbling through my brain about Bandiversaries, success, goals, etc. I may post some more this week -- I may not. Who knows?
