Update...one year later

Mar 18, 2008

I didn't realize it had been so long sice I updated my blog, but I wanted to give an update on my progress.  It was one year since surgery on February 12, 2008.  I had my one-year check-up with Dr. Mailapur on Feb 14.  All blood work came back great.  My B-12 was still on the low side of normal, and I have gone to monthly injections instead of daily sublingual and that seems to be helping with my energy level.  I was down 161 pounds officially in 1 year...over 80% of my excess weight gone in a year.  According to my BMI, I am still considered on the low end of overweight, but from where I came from to where I am now, I DON'T CARE

I feel great, and I look great and I am able to do all the things I wanted to do but couldn't.  I am still going to try and lose another 10 to 20 pounds (as of this writing, I have dropped 3 pounds since my check-up).  I hope to do that over the summer with increased excersise.  I am loving life for really the first time in my adult life.  What an incredible tool this surgery is.
