One-Year Check-Up

   Yesterday was my official one-year check-up with my surgery center. It was a longer visit than my usual monthly visits. They updated my history, performed a more thorough exam, reviewed my goals, and they did a barium swallow to see my little buddy.  I'm happy to report that all is well with the universe.
   I have surpassed their goal (they expect you to lose 50% of your excess weight at one year, I've lost 65%). They did see a slight dilation of the esophagus just above the diaphragm, but said it wasn't large enough to worry about. This simply drove home the Golden Rule of eating small bites and waiting one minute between. Here's my glamour shot:

I'm so excited! I am so pleased with my Band and the changes in my life.

Have a great week!!


  1. Yay! 65% is HUGE in one year. You're an inspiration!
