One Pound At A Time

My name is Kristin and I am 46 years old and born on HALLOWEEN and I had adjustable gastric banding or Lap Band surgery on Nov 9th 2007 in Peoria IL by Dr. Debord. I have lost 67 pounds since surgery. I am active now working out 5-6 times a week at a gym.

I have a very realistic goal to reach by my one year anniversary of my banding I want to be 140 pounds. This weight will be 3 pounds heavier than the day I got married 28 years ago..

I have a very realistic goal to reach by my one year anniversary of my banding I want to be 140 pounds. This weight will be 3 pounds heavier than the day I got married 28 years ago..

I have dealt with my weight since the death of my son in 1988. I was 175 pounds at his death and I ballooned up to 287 pounds my highest weight in October 2007.

I have vowed to work to become the healthiest me that I can be for myself and for my grandsons Adam and Cole who are the lights of my life. I want to see them grow up and become wonderful young men.

I want to inspire others around me who are fighting with the same issues of food and lack of motivation and exercise that I have had for many many years. I do not have problems losing weight once I put my mind to it, my problem is keeping it off. So that is why I decided on Lap Band. I wanted the portions to be controlled forever. I knew if they were I would never be tempted to over eat again.

I still have the most important role in this whole journey. I must choose healthy foods to go into my now very tiny stomach. This is so important with banding, if you still eat ice creme, soda,chips and junk the band will only be an expensive investment that never does a thing.

I know with the determination and drive that I have I will get to the Goal that I have set for myself. I am already moving and and making that a very big part of my life. That alone has made me feel wonderful.

My Goals:
I am moving toward a healthier lifestyle. With more exercise and better food choices. My LapBand is going to help with portion control. It is still up to me to make the right food choices!

My large goal is to lose down to 140 pounds by November 9, 2008. This will be my one year anniversary for LapBand!

My Program:
I am limited to 3 ounce meals 3 times a day. I have Unjury protein shake mid morning and mid afternoon. I am having no snacking in between meals.

I joined a gym in August and after my surgery I am on track to working out no less than 4 times a week 5 if possible. I am currently doing water aerobics and walking in the lazy river against the current. I walk on the treadmill and use the bicycle as well. I also do strength training in the water with foam dumbells.

I am living towards a more healthier me.

Personal Information:
I am 46 years old and I love my grandchildren. I want to be around to watch them grow up. I live in the central midwest in Illinois and I work for a large Medical Group. I have been married 28 years and have two dogs.

Other Information:
I lost my son Adam Harris age 4 1/2 to Burkitts Lymphoma in 1988. He is the inspiration to me to keep on going with my life changing weightloss. His strength and courage I have not since known. I miss him each and everyday and he is Always With Me!!
