7 Month Bandiversary

Yesterday was my 7 month bandiversary. Wow! How time flies! I can't believe it's already been 7 months. I am about 97 pounds down. I kind of wish I could have said I had lost 100 in 7 months, but the time will come soon. I'm still amazed that I have lost so much so quickly. I would have never imagined!

A lot has changed in 7 months. Here's a list of some of the good things that have changed:
I have had to take a link out of my watch;
I have also had to take a link out of a bracelet;
My rings are too big - I am wearing them on other fingers;
I have dropped 2, sometimes 3 shirt sizes;
I have dropped 3 to 4 pant sizes;
I have dropped countless bra cups; and
My feet have even shrunk a bit too, about a size.

And the bad thing - I am noticing a lot of excess skin on my upper arms. I'm glad the weather will get cooler soon and I will be able to wear 3/4 or long sleeve shirts. I think I will soon be sporting 3/4 sleeve shirts year round!

Here are my before and 7 month photos -

Anywho, that's it for the moment.

Wow, what a great place to be at 7 months :) I'm having the upper arm loose skin also. I think that is the one place I will have plastics in the end, because I don't want to have to hide my arms after losing all my weight!
Big hugs to you!

Amazing... We were banded around the same time... I am 92 pounds down so far but have much more to lose than you do. It feels wonderful and I am so happy for you. I will be 7 months out next week. *Maria*-Blogger from "This one time at BAND Camp..."
