Just how much have I lost?

Summer is here

Well summer is here and so are the shorts!  I am ok with wearing shorts now and am acutally trying to find a few new sundresses this year for the first time ever.
yes I am still needing an unfill. I have a few more weeks of school and then I am going to be able to get it done.  Right now getting it would mean leaving work early and I just don't want to do that with this little bit of time left.

My best friend just got her band this past week. She had to do 3 weeks of optifast before the surgery and lost 15 pounds.  then on Monday she had the surgery and has lost an additional 2 pounds since then.  She is texting me often to find out tips and asking me what I remember about when I had the surgery done.  It is funny telling her all about getting in protein and drinking slow and protein shots etc.  yet none of that I do now.  All I do is take my vitamins, and do not drink 30 minutes before or after.

I told her that I don't eat bread anymore or cake and I eat a lot less of everything.  But honestly I know I eat terrible food choices and am getting no where near the 60 grams of protein I used to be getting.

I wonder if she will surpass me on weightloss.  I wonder how quickly she will lose it.  We have both been fat together our entire lives.  I had the surgery 2 and 1/2 years ago and lost about 80 pounds where she has stayed where I was at about 250 for the past 10 years or so. 
I want her to do well, but in a selfish kind of way I don't want her to do better than me.

Maybe once I get my band right I can get back into the correct way of eating.
