Hi again.  It has been a while since I posted.  I feel lost in Florida as I have not been able to attend any support groups and have been letting food win again to some extent.  I have gained about 30 lbs and have not been able to get it back off.  I am searching for a diet that I am able to do and get this weight off.  Exercise is almost impossible as I had knee surgery in January and it hasn't healed properly.  I am waiting to get a new brace and they say I will be able to exercise more. 

If anyone can give me suggestions I would appreciate it.  I even have thought about getting the gastric sleeve or even the  Lap Band just to tighten up my pouch but I do not have the extra money to do it. 

Thanks for listening...

New me... new location

Well, since I posted last, I have divorced after 5 + years of marriage.  I also have moved to West Palm Beach, FL trying to start a new life for myself but it hasn't been easy.  I find I am all the time wanting to eat the wrong things.  I have a time with the "hand in mouth" problems again.  I am finally getting my insurance started again and now the problems with trying to find a new dr for Follow up. 

If anyone reads this that lives in the West Palm Beach area that can recommend a dr for me to go to as well as a support group, please let me know.  I will post a few pictures as soon as I can.

Thanks for reading...

My Story

Hi,

I am new to the family here at obesityhelp.com and wanted to try and write my story so here goes.  I am 49 yrs old and started this journey at actually 315 before loosing a few pounds before surgery and got down to 296. I had my gastric bypass on 1/26/07.  There were complications during my surgery, when they took one of the tools out, it nicked my liver and I was bleeding inside.  4 days after my surgery and 3 pints of blood later, they went back in to cauterize the bleeder and fix me up.  I was in the hospital for 11 days before being able to go home.  Once I went home, I tried to go back to work after two weeks.. big mistake.  I ended back in the hospital dehydrated and not able to eat.  I to date have have 4 barriam (sp?) swallows with lower bowel and 2 scopes.  They did find a small red area and were treating it as the start of an ulcer.  As far as I know that healed up nicely.  I am currently down from a size 26 to a size 20/22 and my weight is down to 243 (53 lbs).  It is coming off slow, a bit slower than I anticipated but I am happy so far with the results.  I struggle with what I am allowed to eat and my cravings.  When I am at work it isn't quite as bad because I am able to stay busy working on the phones.  I feel bad because I want to eat out of boredom.  I get head hunger as well.  I am fighting with myself all the time.  One day though, I hope to be happy with myself instead of still seeing the heavy set person I have been for quite some time.  Thanks for listening (or reading as it is) All the best!!
