Here is the beginning of my story. I was always atheletic growing up was in every sport you could imagine. Joined the Dance team in high school. Loved everything. Then At age 20 I got married then pregnant and little did I know... you really can NOT eat whatever you want and it will come off when you have the baby. I went from a size 9 pre children to a tight 18 after. That was at age 21. I have since had 2 more children and have added about 100 more lbs.
I decided in 2006 that I wanted to look into having gastric bypass. I talked to my doctor he thought it was a good idea and sent a referal in. Well, I guess 1/2 because I was scared and 1/2 because I thought it took a long time I didn't call to see how the referral was going. After about 8 months I decided I needed to find out what was going on with it. (I heard it took about a year to have the surgery so I just assumed they'd call me) well, my referral was never received at the Bariatrics So I called to have another one. So my Journey started in August of 2007. I went to my orientation meeting August 28th, 2007. It was about a 4 hour class. Very informative. We received a LOT of information. They said we should get another appointment in about 6 weeks. Well, 6 weeks came and left. I was about to give up on it and I got an appointment in the mail. January Nutrition class. I went to that and that same day I had gotten home and there was another appointment in the mail for my appointment with the Doctor. Feb. 7th. I met with the doctor I had lost 13 lbs but she wanted me to lose 17 more. So I made an appointment to meet with Pschye and have a life maintenence class on March 7th. That all went very well.
In the mean time my family joined a gym. I have been going every other day. I really forgot how much I enjoy working out. Let me tell you it was HARD HARD HARD to start out. But now I really really enjoy it. I look forward to going. I just hope I can keep it up. I have been changing my eating habits and trying to get used to all the "rules" for after the surgery. Some are harder than others but I am getting there.
I had an appointment with my OB/GYN this past Friday and I have lost all 30 lbs they wanted me to lose before the surgery. (YEAHHH)
I have a phone appointment with the nurse this Thursday and hopefully then they will set an appointment iwth the surgeon and hopefully then hopefully get a surgery date.
Wish me luck.
I will keep updating this as things progress so It will be step by step.
