Plateauland, Inches Lost and a Fill

I have been in plateauland for the last month, down a measley 1 pound for the month of April. But I’ll take it because at least I didn’t gain!

Feeling a bit frustrated (even with everyone’s kind words that it will get better), I decided to take my measurements. WOW! My starting measurements were January 5th, 2010 and 4 months later I have lost a total of 19 inches. I am most proud that my beer belly is down significantly. My pants are also sliding off my butt and I am now into clothes that I haven’t been able to wear for years. Another 10 pounds and I will need a small shopping trip for some summer clothes. I hope everyone took their starting measurements as it gives such a boost. My stats are at the bottom of my blog. And no, this picture isn't of me. I'm not blond.

I had a fill on Monday afternoon and hope this restarts the weight loss. It was a tiny 0.25 cc added which means I am still under 4 cc in a 10 cc band. I have to take it slow as I had problems going up too fast. I was on liquids last night and have had scrambled eggs and toast this morning. So far I haven’t felt a lot of hunger and hope it holds.

Best news is that I have booked the hotel room for Chicago minutes ago. 4 months, 2 weeks, 6 days to go!

Plateus are such a pain the the buttocks. Great idea about taking measurements.

That's great about your measurements. I know the scale is so often the focus but our bodies change in lots of different ways. Hope the fill is helpful!

19 inches is amazing!!
I have my fill tomorrow. I currently have 4cc's and was planning on going to 5!!
I can eat a lot more and hungry in between meals!

I wish I tool measurements - I felt pretty hopeless when I started, so I didn't. You are doing so great! Can hardly wait for Chicago.

It is so great to see those measurements go down! You really knocked off some major inches! YAY!!!!

I can't believe what a tiny fill you have. I have 7.4 ccs in a 10 cc band and I have a fill scheduled for next week. I am still not sure whether I need it or not....

Hope your fill does the trick!
