I thought it was time for another update...been a month. I had my 1 year post-op check-up on 3/27 . My bloodwork looks perfect according to my surgeon ~ I feel wonderful!! He would like to see me gain 10-15 pounds as I am 13 pounds below my ideal weight for my height. I should be between 135/146 and I'm at 123. Well...WTF??? I have never, nor ever dreamed, I would be told I needed to GAIN weight after working so hard to lose it. Kinda funny and really hard for my mind to grasp at this time. The Nut. wants me to add up to 400 extra calories at day. My PCP suggested this back in February. So, I've been working on it and have successfully added 150 in the past month. I will attempt to bump it up another 50 - 100 calories at the beginning of May. I decided if I add slowly my body should tolerate it better.
I started riding again now that the weather is better. It's been a little difficult with my new work schedule but I'm trying to get in twice a week at least. I'm hoping to go today when the kids are down for a nap!! I did get time in enough to ride 2 horses on Wed!!! Yesterday was beautiful but I opted to play with the kids.
I took my wedding ring in to be resized. It can't be because it has a design all the way around. I did have my diamond sent out and will take my Mother's ring and family ring in to be redone this week. Guess I just get a new wedding band hubby's going to love that!!
Life is good...I'm very happy!!! I never dreamed my life could be so different in a matter of 1 year. 1 year ago I was in ICU suffering and fully regretting my decision to have this surgery. Now...it's the best thing I could have ever done for myself.
