5 Months and 50 lbs. Down

My 5-month "surgiversary" was a couple of days ago. I am still loving life with the lap band. I've lost 50 pounds and 2 pant sizes. I've only had to have 2 fills since my surgery and have had a wonderful level of restriction...not too tight, not too loose.
Next Friday, I see Fuzz for a complete unfill because I'm heading to Italy in a couple of weeks for a 10-day vacation. Apparently, the lap-band gets tighter for some reason when you fly, so he likes to loosen it up before a long flight. That's just FINE with me because I want to fuly enjoy the Italian food while I'm there. I'm not too worried about gaining weight, because we'll also be doing alot of walking on the trip. Plus, even with an unfilled band, I doubt I'll be able to eat as much as I could before surgery.

Here are some before and after shots. This is what 50 pounds less of me looks like.
