I am so happy for you!! 100 pounds!!! It is truly amazing, and I can really relate to how you are feeling. The band really has been like a miracle for so many of us! Congratulations -- this is an incredible milestone.

I think you are making the right decision on waiting to have plastic surgery as well. You may be surprised to see how much your body will take care of on the loose skin front.

You are truly an inspiration! I am not with the band yet....hoping for May, but it is so refreshing to see someone who has come so far. You look happy and healthy too. Congrats!

Ang - you are just so lovely. I wish I could reach through the screen and hug you. You have to get back to NYC now!! A couple of things. 1) It's so inspirational to see you so close to where I want to be. 165 is my first goal and you are so there 2) Our paths are so similar. I don't remember ever being a normal weight, I think I was probably around 7 years old as well. I've said this before, and will probably say it again but I'm so glad you made the couragous decision to do this at your age. My only regret is that I lived in this body for so long. Love you so much and am so incredibly proud and excited for you!!

Aww Angie I am so happy for you. It is really hard to get it into your head that this is going to work and that it is going to happen. I am there. You have done so amazing and I think you look wonderful. I am so glad you are waiting on the PS, I think you will be so much happier with your results if/when you decide to have it, if you wait.

Angie, I don't know where to start or what comments I can leave that would adequately express what an inspiration you are to me. You are so articulate about your journey and the feelings you have, I'm stunned you're a mere 24 years old! (please don't see that as patronizing!).

I read your blog and hear your vlog and finally feel like there is someone out there who TRULY gets what its been like for me the last 25 years (I too was 7 when I started becoming overweight).

Thank you for being so raw. It pushes me to stay focuses on my efforts and know that what I want to achieve IS possible.

Thank you again!

Hey Ang,
First up - a HUGE congrats on your 101 pounds down (scale twin - you just took off without me - I'm a couple of pounds behind you now lol!!)

You look just beautiful on your vlog - beautiful and content and proud of everything you've accomplished so far. And why shouldn't you be - this is a huge milestone for you. I loved the comments about your arms (wish I could say the same) and yeah - one day plastic surgery MIGHT be the answer - but put in as much work as you have till now - and that might change. You may never need it.

Again congrats dear heart - you amaze me xxx

Gen said...

NORMAL! You are 100% normal. And beautiful! I am so happy for you. This is an incredible accomplishment. And you are so smart to have done this at 24.

The rest is a bonus! Amazing.

Girl Bandit said...

You are an amazing inspiration...100lbs. Good idea to wait on the plastic surgery guy at our info evening said that a year after he hit his goal his skin was back to normal....he lost 176 lbs. You look fantastic. deserve all your success

Carmen said...

You are amazing! Everyone else said it, but it certainly is true, you are an inspiration me! :-) Keep on keeping on sister!

Catherine said...

As my British aunt would say "I'm gob-smacked!" Your blog was the first one that I've ever seen before because I'm fairly new to computers, and also new to lap banding since I had my done on March 19th. I, too, want to lose over 100 pounds and for me to actually see and hear someone who has accomplished this incredible feat gives me even more determination. Angie, you are truly inspirational to a newbie like me. I only wish I was able to have had lapbanding when I was 24 because I feel my life would have taken a much different path. Since I'm twice your age now I say "It's never too late!" Well done! Your infectiously delightful personality really shone through when you talked about your accomplishments and you deserve all the acolades coming your way.

Bianca J said...

Congratulations Angie! You've accomplished so much and look fabulous.

Amy W. said...

Yeah! I finally was able to watch your vlog.

Do you realize that you are below your original goal weight? I mean, do you remember when you couldnt wait to get to 170!? And that is where you thought you were going to stop?

You hadnt told me that you are putting of the TT. I am so happy and proud of you for making that decision. I think you need to give your body time and I was worried about you possibly doing it this May. So good for you for patience my little baby band sister!

you make mama proud!

I wish there was something "STRONGER" than just "Congratulations!"

I am so very happy for you and thank you so much for sharing your thoughts (and ongoing struggles) with us.

You look amazing and even better, you sound amazing.

Wishing you continued success!!
