Panni Approved! on July 26, 2010 2:16 pm
Monday, July 26, 2010 Hi My OH Family. It’s been a minute, but I haven’t gone anywhere, still here, still lurking every day. It’s nice to see everyone in different stages of their weight loss. For those still waiting on a surgery approval or date, don’t give up and be patient, your time is coming. Fall, Winter and Spring came and went. School was great. I did great both semesters. Did not go for Summer semester, but my body and mind needed the rest. I am now preparing for an exciting Fall/Winter all over again. So much has happened since my last update, so let me just get to it. Well, I was approved for a Panniculectomy in June and had the procedure last Friday, July 23. I have an awesome plastic surgeon. Her name is Dr. Fripp; she practices out of DeKalb Medical in Decatur, GA. She is WONDERFUL. I go back for my follow-up on Thursday. She removed 3.5 pounds from below the belly button. No muscle or removal of the belly button was involved. I have not had a chance to see anything yet, because it’s all bandaged and taped right now. I am just happy that it was covered by our insurance. I took pre-op pictures, but the husband will not allow me to post them. Yes, I respect some of his wishes…lol! I finally made it 38 miles on my bike. Tried to get to the 40, but my legs and privacy would not allow me to do 2 more. Your privacy really takes a beaten on the seat of a bike. For those who ride distance, you totally understand what I am talking about. I continue to workout like a crack head. The day of surgery I weighed 165 pounds. I am happy at that weight, but would love to get 10 more pounds off. My eating habits are pretty much the same. I stay away from fried anything, sweets and pasta. I do enjoy these things once in a while, but they are very few and far in between. I still enjoy my wine. Some things I just won’t give up unless my life depends on it and so far my doctor has not said that, so Barefoot it is. Not much more to report on. The family, school and bookclub are all doing well. I take it one day at a time and enjoy the ride. Until my next update, as always, until next time, be safe, love yourself and keep smiling. Most of all keep LOSING!!!
