Bullet time

  • Life is going at warp speed. I can't believe it's been 3 weeks since I posted. I swear, I thought it was about 3 days!
  • I have two very promising job interviews coming up. Please send any good job vibes you have my way!
  • It's been more than a year since my last fill! Seriously! My last fill was Cinco de Mayo 2010. If you are having a hard time finding restriction, do not despair. It took me FOREVER to get it and then once I got it, it's been awesome. Although I keep losing, and my band keeps getting tighter. Grrr...
  • Still mostly on the low-carb bandwagon. I have had some carbs here and there, as my tight band makes eating low-carb difficult sometimes.
  • I am down to 245 lbs! My collarbones are popping out, and my face actually looks kind of thin to me.
  • A friend posted some pics of me on Facebook, and for the first time ever, I wasn't disgusted. I looked normal.
  • I might wear a size 18W suit to my interview! I wore it my first day at my first real job in 2000. And it fits. It has NO give (it's a linen blend). And it fits. It fits. It FITS. IT FITS!
  • I got to spend the day with Heidi a few weeks ago. I can't even tell you guys how awesome she is. AWE to the SOME. Seriously.
  • I promise to do some progress pics this week.
  • I guess that's about it. Off to catch up with my lovely bandster bloggers!


  1. Amy. How long did it take to get restriction? I am 8.5 cc in 10 cc band and I still don't have any. Starting to think I am one of the ones the band won't work for.

  2. You are doing great Amy. My doctor has a theory why the band gets tighter as you lose weight. He thinks the band drops down and settles lower when you lose the fat that is under the band and by settling further down, it feels tighter. If you'r doc stitched the band in good, it shouldnt continue to tighten when you continue to lose but there will be some play in it. Thats what he explained to me anyway.

  3. Oh, and {{{good job interview vibes} coming your way!

  4. You are doing so well and you look fantastic. Way to go on the suit and best of luck on the interviews!!!

  5. Great news, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. I miss you lots!

  6. Good luck with the interviews!!
