Surgeon TestimonialRobert Wilcox, M.D.I met with Dr Wilcox today and was very impressed. He was very kind and let me know everything I wanted/needed to know before I even asked. His staff is great..Erin, Sally, Bonnie. He is very to the point and seems to be great so far. Nothing bad to say about him or anyone I met today. |
Been a while on April 9, 2007 9:53 am
Haven't been on much...same story I think we all get to at this point...too busy living. I am always going, going going. I feel great, look great. I am sky diving tomorrow morning (weather permitting). I go out all the time. Play with the kids, it is great. I am in a 14/16 depending on where I buy them. Size Large/XL shirt. Not too much loose skin. My tummy could be a little tighter but I am not complaining. Everything is going good. I will try to update more later. Just to post this for me...I am over 1/2 way to goal in only 3.5 months. Also..we are moving to Ft Benning on Monday, buying a house. YEAH...NO MORE IRAQ!!! At least for 2 years. XOXOKelly weight 185

WOOHOO, I am in the 100's. I went to the gym tonight and it read 195 (with workout pants and a shirt on). I am so excited. I had a stall for about 2 weeks then -7lbs. I am 2 months post op TODAY and -45lbs total. Can't beat that. I REALLY need to take some more pics. I can tell I have changed lots. I have so much more energy now and love it. I can eat most anything I want so it's all about good choices. I get sick from eating too much sometimes but that's all. Just wanted to share. XOXOKelly

Gym on January 16, 2007 6:14 pm
I went to the gym again today and thought I was taking it slow. I did 40 mins of very slow walking on the tredmill and then got in the spa. I did an incline, but very slow pace. Only burned 100 calories in 40 mins. I say only but since I am only eating 400-600 cals a day, that's a lot. Anyway, thank god my friend went with me since by the time I was leaving, I couldn't carry the baby to the car. I need to go a little slower, maybe only 30 mins next time. Tomorrow is weights (I do weights/cardio/weights/cardio 5 days a week, or that is the plan) and I will do very light weights so I don't hurt myself. I am only doing one set on each machine instead of the 3 the trainer suggested...at least for now. I weighed myself while in my bathing suit...206. It has been 4 weeks today and -34lbs. Pretty good I think, but I know it will slow down. Getting bored with food and I tihnk that is good, since I am eating to live and not living to eat now. I guess that is all...I need someone to take an after pic for me but I think I will wait till I am 199 or 200 to do it...hopefully that will be soon. That is my first goal..well, that and the one I hit last week or week before (being obese and not M.O.). I am tired and going for now. XOXOKelly

How it's going on January 14, 2007 1:48 pm
Things are getting better. I still get tired very easy and need to drink more water. I had my checkup with the surgeon and all is well. I don't have to pack that hole anymore and that is so great. I start Bally's on Monday and will do light weights and a little cardio (walking at first). When the hole is healed I will do swimming. I love swimming. I need to lose 2 lbs and then it will be 30 lbs gone in about a month. Not bad for a "lightweight." I am sure when I start working out it will come off at a slower but steady pace and that's okay with me. My husband left today for MO. He will be gone for 9 weeks. When he gets back I will be 3 months post-op and hopefully around 170 or so. Then we have another month and a half before we get to the next duty station where I hope to be 150 or 160. I know the weight loss is much slower for people who were around my size pre-op. I am kinda glad since it will give my skin longer to tone up and not sag so much. I know my tummy will be bad since I just had Trent. I am hoping I can get a TT in MO since they don't do it at the military hospital. I will have to go through Tricare. I know if I get those rashes I have a better chance and since I already do from some extra skin, I am thinking Tricare will say yes. If not, I guess we will have to pay for it. I may need a breast lift too, we shall see...that's the future. I haven't dumped yet. I am fairly regular. I only eat protein for the most part. I am okay with dairy. I guess I am lucky so far. That's all for now. I will updat more on Monday after I do a body fat check and a weigh in at the gym. After that I will only weigh in on Fridays (unless its the 19th ...the date of my surgery). I will also post some pictures tomorrow. XOXOXKelly

Tired on January 1, 2007 6:47 pm
I am tired all the time, but it is getting better. I know I need more water but I am getting all my protein in. My husband goes back to work in 2 days and I think I will have a hard time, but am sure I will get through it fine. He only goes back for 2 days then he is taking the kids to Florida for a wedding. I am staying home and will like the break. I think I will go to a movie with my friends or something. My good friend Rachel is coming down from Ft Collins to stay a few days so she can help with some stuff. My mother-in-law told me I could come there (North Carolina) with the kids and stay if I needed help, but she works and we don't get along the best. Unless I don't get any better, I think I will stay put. I need to start going to the gym and plan on doing that when Joel leaves for MO. Maybe I can start walking this weekend. I am excited to work out and tone up. I had a reaction to either the tape or the liquid bandage the nurse put on when I had the staples taken out. It itched SO bad and burned. Well, I itched and itched until I couldn't take it. It started to hurt. I couldn't get in to see my PCP or the surgical nurse until Wed...4 days away at the time, so I decided to go to the ER and they said it was like 2nd degree burns and gave me some meds. I am much better now. I have an appointment on the 10th and can't wait to weigh myself. I can see a small difference already and ya gotta start somewhere. I hope it comes off as well as if went on. I put myself on soft foods and am doing well with it. I eat 2 egg whites for breakfast and tuna or crab meat for lunch, bananas are good too. The carnation shakes are great ..I add some unflavored protein to it. Thats all for now, I will keep ya posted. XOXOXKelly

I am a 26 year old mother of 2 boys. I am married to an enlisted Soldier in the Army.I am a pretty happy person for the most part. I have not been overweight my whole life, only for the past 5 years...pregnancy did it for me, I gained 100 lbs and it is still there. I was about 140 when I got pregnant and was active duty myself in the Army. I got out of the military when I was about 4 months pregnant and that's when it got bad. Not only was I eating more, but nobody was there to make me work out everymorning like the Army did, and in high school, there was always a coach there pushing me. For the first time in my life, it was up to me to work out. Needless to say, I didn't. Over the next few years I tried Weight Watchers, The Zone diet, hollywood diet, Atkins, Body for Life, you name it. I am not going to say they didn't work because most diets DO work for most people. It's sticking to them that is the problem. I would always lose about 15-30 lbs pretty easily, then I would have a "cheat" day to reward myself for it. The cheat day always turned into a cheat month, or year. Here I am today, around 240 5'3" and size 20-22 jeans. I have an appointment on th 19th of Oct with Dr Wilcox to see if he thinks I should get the surgery. I don't see why he would say no. I am over 100 lbs overweight, BMI over 40 and have high BP and joint problems. I will keep ya posted as to what he says then. I know there are a butt load of tests I have to do before the surgery, I just hope he can give me a date before I get them all done. Reason being, my husband is going back to Iraq in Jan for 8 months to a year and I will need him here for recovery (we just had a baby 4 months ago). Anyway...that's all so far. Can't wait till the 19th to find out more. Have a great day all. OXOXOX Kelly
