I did a SELF PAY with Dr Heap. I have dual coverage w/ Kaiser but they decided twice that at 300 lbs I needed to be either more sick or more fat. Well Thats not an option in my book!...my life was worth the 14,000.00 self pay costs.

Starting Weight 304 lbs. Feel awful, High Blood Pressure, leg and ankle swelling, back and joint pain. Hip pain. Just PAIN everywhere! Fatigue... Depression, limited mobility, shortness of breath my god! I was dying not living.
Type of Surgery: Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy with a Silastic Band on my upper third of whats left of my tummy and small intestine bypass.(VSG - OPEN) Thank You Dr Heap for not following the status Quo for surgeries! I feel that I have the best of ALL surgeries rolled into one superior procedure. Just MY opionion!
DR. Adrian Heap Richland Washington SELF PAY $14,000.00 includes everything... Hospital Anesthesia etc....
Stayed Hosp 3 days. My experience w/ Dr Heap was very positive. KGH treated me excellent. Care was excellent. My Mother was a true heaven sent Angel she took such good care of me while I mended. I love you Mom! I could'nt have done it without your love and support... XOXO My sister brought me a dozen Yellow Beautiful roses. She is the best Sis a gal could have I love her with all my heart. I wish I could help her get this surgery. It was very reassuring to me knowing that my family was there for me. I love them all!
Dec 31 2005 269 lbs -35 Hit a bit of a stall. But this is normal. All my aches and pains from surgery are pretty
much gone. I can sleep on my side again. I am so happy I am entering 2006 with the "tool" of surgery aided weight loss. Now I WILL be a success and not another failure. I will work my hardest to be a success. Failure is no longer an option... No opportunity will be wasted this time........ This time I WILL WIN.... going to make it all the way to goal.. 130 lbs... keep watch you will see..

Yaaahhoooo. I got 2 of everything from Vitalady.com I have dicovered that:
Triple Chocolate power crunch bars are pure delight in taste. And they are good for you! The Iso Pure Canteloupe is excellent also. The Nectar Peach is good. But Nectar Fuzzy Navel is THE BEST! These protein drinks are so good, not gritty. I mix the powder in a Mango Melon SoBe Lean. I also use a Mocha Cappachino in my cofee, you mix and dissolve in cool water then add the hot coffee. 30 G Protein and a latte! WOW! It's great! No more dreading drinking my protein. I feel like I am starting to find my "even balance" w/ fluids foods exercise..and soon to be body.

2.23.06 -52 LBS!! Today my BMI is 39.4 I am only Obese!!! I started out at 50 ! I am working very very hard to make this "window of opportunity " work. I actually went somewhere last night where I sat on a couch with my legs comfortably crossed! Even though I still weigh a lot I am starting to feel like a Normal human being again. I wear a Tee shirt now that says XL not 3X... That is cool! I can cross my legs, sit in a chair w/ arms again. Bend over when something falls to the floor and pick it up! Tie my shoes with my pants zipped up. The list of good things just goes on and on. And... I just feel so damn GOOD! Thank you God for sending me to all the right places at all the right times! I FEEL LIKE I AM ALIVE AGAIN! I am busting out with both feet kicking...

March 18 2006 My progress so far....
MARCH 19 2006 SUNDAY: Today I purchased a pair of size 18W Jeans. Did not think they would actually fit. Tried em on to see how far I have to go before I can wear em.

This surgery is my "golden ticket" to success. Going all the way this time. Watch out 16's I am gunning for ya!
March 21, 2006 Tuesday... Gosh I feel sooo good. The energy is really starting to kick up a notch. I just did one hour & 45 mins of fat blasting butt sculpting exercise. And I think I could have kept on going but had to move on to other things. American Idol. Chris Daughtry sang Johnny Cash's Walk the Line and it was over the top. LOVED IT! I feel like my muscles are starting to "wake up" ... it's weird... but in the most awesome kind of way... I almost can't sit still.
March 23 2006 Thursday -63 lbs. BMI 37.7.. Exercised 2 freaking hours tonight! I feel like I could have done 3! I am turning into some kind of exercise kook! But I LOVE the energy I get from it. I did things tonight I would never have thought possible. I sat indian style on the floor. Did Yoga moves. I had my body bent into a sideways "U" with my feet in front of my face. I even did some push ups! I did things tonight that amazed me ! I would do this surgery again I dont care what the $$ cost was. Its like NIGHT & DAY baby! Riding weather will be here soon and I have a pair of chaps I am trying to get into. My Dad's Harley jacket almost fits.. This is what I call the sweet taste of WLS success. It's very intoxicationg and invigorating. I want more and I am gonna get it!
Things I wanna accomplish in 2006

3.28.06 Tuesday -65 lbs today! Unbelieveable! It's like a stone has been lifted from my shoulders... I just don't know how else to describe it. I exercised 2 hours last night and 1 hour tonight. I feel so very good. So alive and awake. I am more in tune with the world around me. I ate too many cheese sticks today. I think I have had 5! OMG! Summer is coming quick. I will be ready. This time I wont dread the hot days. I will be ok.
March 31 2006 FRIDAY!! 239 lbs... -65 !! Time to set clocks forward. I just finished 90 mins Cardio and weights... I do Lots of fun dances. I did the "Coco Jumbo and the Conga" tonight I had so much fun and blasted the fat. I think I can see my muscles peeking through the fat! I just cant even hardly sit still anymore. I just want to be "in motion" all the time! I feel soooo gooood! Like lightning in a bottle! I will be "ready" when summer arrives. Weather man just gave us DRY Saturday! WOOO HOOOO! I am going on a long motorcycle ride tommorrow and join the Star Touring Chapter. If you ride and you are reading this come join us in the motorcycle forum. I love the Yamahog... we are one. I think I had a WOW moment today... I realized I am no longer the fattest person in the office that has now been passed from my hands!
I also think people are reacting to me differently now. It's all a very interesting study in life! You go from Invisible woman to the one everyone wants to talk to.. not an easy adjustment there for a person who is and has been the solitary loner type... will work on this issue.... I breathe better in open non crowded spaces
My size 18 Jeans are losing their snug grip... and that only means one thing!! 16's I am coming for ya!
4 1 2006 Saturday, Oh my gosh what a day! Ok I am talking motorcycles now so if they bore you skip this posting. I logged 148 miles on Twinkle today! We grew wings and flew through the highways! I met with Star Chapters 146 & 306 both today! I met some really great people today that (in my opionion) ride really great bikes! We rode into Mt Angel and then to Silverton Oregon for lunch after the meeting ended and it was dry. We only got rained on for about 10 mins on the way home. My windshield did its job and I was glad to hit the dry again. Had some debris from a van hauling a trailer fly off and I had to do the dipsy doodle on my Roadie with 6 bikes right on my tail following suit... MSF payed off today! I had so much fun on my bike riding with the group. Today was one of Life's finer moments. Here are some of the bikes I rode w/ today mine is the second one in line. It has the sparlkly butterflies all over the fairing! Then after I split off from the group to take my Freeway I was swallowed up by a Group of "Outsiders" and they yelled some crap at me and cruised passed. They can just keep on with their bad selves! I thought they were gonna trap me in with em for a moment. It was kind of scarey. Next weekend is Star Days at the dealership where we bought our bikes is just 1 mile from our house. Both Chapters will show. I also am buying new pipes for my bike next weekend! Gonna be sweet sounding when I am riding. I will probably pick up some chrome trimmings too. Just cant get enough Bling on! The Northwest Star-B-Q is June 23 & 24 we are going to get the hotel package and cut some serious memories and fun! Now hubby is BBQ'ing dinner for me. Yep... it just does not get any better than this! So how was YOUR day? Good I hope!
I got this off another website... it sure is fitting... it describes riding exactly how I feel it..
I Ride Alone ....
The wind at my back, my face to the sun,
In search of adventure and some two-wheelin' fun,
I ride down to Main Street, and I ride far from home.
And one thing is certain: I ride alone.
There are some that can relate to the words that I print,
Some know of what I speak and others just don't have a hint.
As I fire up my bike to satisfy that yearning,
I know it feels right once those two wheels are turning.
Many prefer the short ride and stay close to home,
And some travel far and wide; they know they must roam...
I ride alone.
The feeling I get as I glide through the wind,
And the rush that comes on when the throttle is pinned,
To feel the power of the engine, its throaty exhaust tone,
A grin comes to my face like none that I have known.
The only way to describe it is "being in the zone...."
I ride alone.
when riding in groups of two or ten,
We share the same passion,
A two-wheelin' state of zen.
Each has an experience uniquely his own.
Our thoughts and our feelings
To the others are unknown....
We ride alone.
At the end of the day when the riding is done.
You crack open a beer and reflect on the day's fun.
And maybe you'll share with those that inquire
Your free-spirited adventures, your two-wheeled desire.
And as you reveal the wonders you've known
While chasing the wind and scraping the chrome,
Racing toward the horizon or leaning deep in a curve,
The roads and weather that challenge your nerve,
And seeing the country as never before,
It's just not the same from inside a four-door.
And they hang on your words like you're reading a poem...
I ride alone.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be rude.
At times we ride in groups, to events or to eat food.
But whether we ride in a group or just ride solo,
It's only you in your head wherever you go.
While many of us choose the same bikes, the same steeds,
We alter and tweak them to fit our own needs.
And though we may travel the same roads together,
And appear to the masses to be birds of a feather,
How we ride and why we ride to each of us is unique,
Whether it's enrichment of the soul, or a personal nirvana we seek.
We each know that feeling when we're in the zone,
And it's then that you realize:
I ride alone.
April 3 2006 Mon -66 lbs. I feel so good today! Lost another pound. I am 38 lbs away from getting out of the 200's! I am so excited... this is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me.

Here's a BLUE fish...
There's a NEW fish...

Fishes with wishes...
Fishes with taste...
Fishes with no
Fishes, fishes, fishes..
Even fish with wishes.

I love my exercise. All I have to say is if you are reading this and not exercising... you really may want to reconsider. If you are tired and depressed and your weight is stalling... step it up a notch. No matter how tired you are.. with in a day or two you will be wired for the world... beware.. it REALLY amped me up! I love it now. Life is FULL THROTTLE all the way.... Be your own cause and NEVER give up without a fight... Oh yeah My Bullwhip came today!!! Target practice tonight was sooo much fun!! I still have that snap of the wrist!! The dogs all ran and hid... I only whipped myself twice!!! But it did not hurt much.. You should have seen the poor cans!!!
June 17 2006 -93 lbs down to 211.. I KNOW I am going to win this time. I am going all the weigh... Because now I BELIEVE in the Power of me... you can do it to.. email me if you need help. I am here for anyone who needs me. Because together we can make a difference. Peace!
June 19 2006 211 lbs Monday Today I had the day off.. so I did Dexter Dam 344 miles of FUN and smiles!!
Even took a pic while I was DRIVING!!! Yes riding is my thing.. makes me feel so peaceful...
Then after riding 344 miles you get Happy Helmet Hair and Red Rider nose!! Loved every mile and every smile of it!
June 25 2006 Went to NW Star B Q this weekend.. stayed at the Red Lion in Salem.. met so many new people and connected with some from www.Startouring.org.. even got a new Tat!! Wow!! More fun than I would have ever had 7 months ago... Life is FULL THROTTLE.. getting ready for OVERDRIVE...
Getting my new Tat.. The bird represents my new found freedom...
2 wheeling fun was had with the Stars... I luv them all..
To look out upon a sea of bikes and hear the motors and see the smiles and the people.. it was the best room in da house!! This is part of why I ride... being with the people who are like me...
It's where I belong and fit in best.. amongst the bikers.. and the bikes! That's the life for me!
July 6 2006 211 lbs -93 lbs
Well I just returned from a Motorcycle vacation that was a trip of a lifetime... it almost feels like it was a happy dream it went by so fast.. the fun was had 24/7.. I had the BEST company a gal could ever ask for.. I was the Lucky Ducky for a change...
Just had to share something kinda like a WOW moment with ya all.. my weight has been kinda stuck at 209-213.. cant seem to move it. Been getting a lil frustrated.. trying like the dickens to get below the 200 mark. Seems like an un-obtainable goal at times.. but I will never give up. So here I am at Wally world aka Wal-Marche'.. and I am at the Lee Riders rack.. my fav-o-rite S-T-R-E-T-C-H Jeans... and I decide I am gonna pick up a size 10 so that I have some "motivational" britches to look at... they look so small they will never fit ME.... Well I am the impatient one you know.. just had to see "How Far" I need to go to get to wearing them... Here I comfortably sit at work in my size 10 jeans!!! It must be magic Mr Wizard cuz how else does this HUGE backside and flabby tummy get into them????? Have a good day all! Hugs and Luv to all who reads this..... may you always walk with a happy heart and a smile upon your face to share with others that you meet...
July 9 2006 Sunday
It feels good to be able to wear shorts and tank tops. Clothes are dirt cheap now. I got this top and shorts for less than 10.00 for BOTH pieces..and I hardly eat anything .. so now I shop online with all the grocery $$ saved!
July 10 2006 208lbs -96... Getting closer to my goal ! 78 more lbs to go.. I WILL make it to 130... I could even go to 120 and be on the low end of the normal BMI range.. I am wearing size 10 Lee Riders!! A Medium in Tees and Jammies!! Can ya believe it??!!! I can barely believe my own eyes!! I even ordered some stuff from Victorias Secret!! Wow!! Now that makes me happy!! Sometimes I look in the da Mirror and say.... "Who Dat Blondie looking back at me!" Then sometimes I look in da mirror and see the "old" me looking back.. seems like she never leaves ya completely.. well soon she is gonna be a faded memory! Cuz the "Old" me..is OUTTA HERE! Have a good day all who reads this! I luvs ya all!
Me and da Cleo Bird..7 10 06 Monday.. she is my special baby .. We have a luv fest when we are together.. we soak it up like sponges from each other..hehehehe... I love my petz!
7.11.06 208 lbs.. Almost 8 months post op now.. Just wanted to add.. I have cut my exercise to 3-4 days a week 1 hour sesstions. This change has resulted in the return of a normal sleeping schedule. But I do notice a decrease in my energy. I will have to step it up a lil bit and find that perfect balance. I did throw up my 3-4 chicken bites last night. Another food I am taking off the "things I can eat safely" list.. uuughhh it was 10 minutes of pure misery! But I am all good now. My bloodwork I had done all came back perfect and NORMAL! Dr said keep on doing what I am doing cuz it's working. I have never felt so good my entire life I believe!! When you have your health.. you have the world by it's tail! And I am hanging tight onto that tail..never gonna let it go! hehehehee
I think the happy smile pretty much says it all!!!
feeling down? Need a good laugh.. a funnybone tickler? watch this video to the very end... should end up with a smile upon your face in no time ... enjoy!
My friend snapped a pic of me whilst I was trailing behind him..playing the tail...we were riding in South Lake Tahoe.. wow!!
7 15 06 Saturday 208 -96 lbs I just need to lose 4 more to make CENTURY club! Woo hoo! Today is the first day in ten years I have worn a dress much less a shoe with a heel elevation to it!! It just keeps getting better and better everyday... how did I get to be such a lucky chickadee?
July 16, 2006 Sunday 207 lbs! Lost another one!! Woo hoo 3 lbs away from century club!! Dame Tooter.. it wont be long before I make my request! I went riding today... had a very good time!! Me, The Twinks and the Ipod... Someone said I looked hot today! WOW moment! It was good to hear though... Maybe just dazzeled him with my sparkly pink helmet!
July 20 2006 208 was hoping to hit the 100 lb mark by now.. but I see is gonna take longer.. but someone else took 10 months to hit it. I am 8 months. It better not take 2 more months to lose 4 lbs!! Its hotter then H#%L here the next 4 days... I notice the heat does not effect me like it used to. Now I can actually still function! Ans wear very little clothes... so that helps!
7 21 06 Friday 208 lbs.. still holding.. I have only lost 3 lbs in the last month.. that bites! It is 105 degrees today. Very hot. I am fair skinned so I dont do sun... but the heat is much easier for me to deal with than before.. it still sucks.. just not as bad!! I am actually comfortable in LESS clothes.. how weird is that? Like Less is better... I am wearing shorts and a tank top to the company picninc tommorrow. Cannot ride the Scoot Twinks.. is too hot 105 again.. but hey I will just be happy with the shorts and tank!! PROGRESS on the smallest level sometimes is the most satisfying! Hugs all who reads this!! This weekend will be loaded full of fun and games ... and a good time will be had by all. I am meeting some fun and amazing people. I find I am buying lots of stuff.. mostly motorcycle parts (that is a whole other addiction!) and clothes.. I think they call it addiction transference. I better be careful... but my scoot & I we gonna be well dressed!! Because we CAN!! heheheheee
Luvs ya all who reads this.... Life at full throttle... then kick it into Overdrive...
July 27 2006 210 lbs -94... yes I have gone up 3 frigging lbs!!! UUGHHHHH.. I have been spinning my wheels this last month.. It has been awfully hot. I have not been getting my protein in.. no exercise because of the heat. I feel tired again.. have not even been taking my vitamins and Twinks is the motorcycle repair shop cuz I mucked her up!!! Not been the best month.. I been drinking a FEW (3 a night) not every night.. Mike Hard Lemonades... gonna stop them shenanigans NOW.. I think it is adding to the lbs creeping on.. back to So-Be lean/Protein drinks and exercise TONIGHT... is supposed to be cooler... so now I am 6 lbs from century club... good grief.. will I ever get there??? EVER? I suppose I will... I just want this OVER with!! But I have been advised...it's a life long battle... so I have my fighting face on.. Gonna KICK SOME ARSE with this fat! I am NOT having it anymore..NOT I SAY!
7 28 06 FRIDAY!!!! 212 -92lbs TGIF!!! All I am gonna say is in the last 4 days I have GAINED 5 lbs!!! I am sooooo disheartened by this... and the sad part is.. I believe it was self induced and could have been prevented.. The weather is cooling .. and watch out body .. we are going to start "Back to Basics exercise BOOT CAMP" I think I know the cure... and I have fallen off the exercise wagon in the heat...
Well guess what ... I am bbbaaaacck!! And there is gonna be a whole lot of shakin going on .. GAME ON. Time to turn the table.. check back in a week... see if I do it...I WILL.. you will see.. Because my amazing journey is not over yet.. I am still "walking my line" ... I am midway in my journey and the goal is in sight.. Because I can see it.. I WILL BE IT! So keep your eye on me! Have a great Friday and hugs to all who read this!!
7 30 06 210 -94 lbs... Today is my 46th B-day.. I was hoping to make century club by now.. but still am 6 lbs shy of that goal.. But the good news is .. the last 2 days I got back on the exercise wagon and have already peeled off 2 of the 5 I gained.. AND I FEEL BETTER!!! I LOVE to EXERCISE!! It makes me feel sooooo good when I am done.. just feel HAPPY afterwards... I recommend it for everyone.. get Pro-Active and do something positive for yourself.. your body will thank you!! I am still walking my line.. til I get to goal I will not quit! I am off for a day of Motorcycling... gonna take my friend Michelle with me for a day of 2 Gals on the loose fun! Will take lots of pix! Hugs to all who reads this! I luvs ya all!
8 2 06 210 lbs.. -94 lbs... Size 10 Lee Riders Jeans Med Tee .. I have been walking the Hill everynight. Was hoping to see the numbers move. They are being stubborn as hell! I can only hope the body is doing one of its "morphing" tricks.. exchanging fat for muscle type business.. it has happened before. I will just stay the course.. it's like a dam about to bust I can tell. But I feel really good after my walking.. walk and think and ponder... my world is doing a 360 degree flip.. for the better... Hugs to all who reads this...
8 3 06 208 -96 lbs.. ok walking the hill is working.. I did up my protein.. started drinking it again.. Seems to be what I need to get things going.. so i am now only 4 lbs from century club!! getting closer!!! Just a side note.. when you lose a lot of weight .. you may not be liked by all.. funny how that is.. people dont like ya fat... and they resent ya slim! hmmmm wierd.... strange behaviors indeed...
8 4 06 208 -96 I have been feeling good again.. it was hit and miss for a while the last 30 days.. but I think its picking up again.. and it is directly related to the protein intake and fluids.. and mostly the EXERCISE.. and now that I have dropped one of my "forums.".. I am going to have more time for exercise and less time sitting doing nothing on the net.. A winning combination if you ask me! I also find that I am smilimg more in life.. just one of the side affects of the most amazing journey I have ever been on.. it is a crazy ride.. would not trade it for anything. But is nice to have the "power" back... no more doormat or pincusion here.. uh uh.. it's the new me finally hitting the ground running....... tommorrow is a day of me and my Girl Twinks.. gonna hit the ribbon.... we shall see where we end up.. guarentee where ever I am .. you can bet I will be having fun.. cuz... Fun is.. my middle name! hehheee Yes life is good.. and I know just what to do to make it better! I will be just fine.. as I walk my line... and success is the target.. I see it in my sights.... come stop in the OH motorcycle forum .. say hello.. anyone welcome here.. OH family is the best...
8 5 06 206 -98 lbs.. WOW! This is my lowest weight yet.. I think I am on the losing streak again!!! I feel so good.. I so appreciate my health. My world is changing so fast.. I hope I do the right things for me..

I feel FANTASTIC... I cannot even imagine how good life will be when I hit goal.. it is already so amazingly good.. and it gets better??!!! Dean Tippets from OH and his pal Kim came through my neck of the woods and it was so wonderful to meet him .. we talked about our journey and how we are affected by it.. it was so nice to hear from someone else's lips the things I am going through... Here are some recent pictures.. I just love riding Twinkle Star ... I have been making new friends.. something I have never done before.. but feel comfortable about now.. I have zero regrets on my procedure... It has truly saved my life and given me my life back.. I feel like I have hit the Jackpot of LIFE...
OH Member Dean Tippets and his Friend Kim.. what a pleasure it was meeting and riding with them both...

9 18 06 198 -106 lbs!!! this is my 10 Month anniversary.. soon will be at the 1 yeare mark.. WOW!! It does not seem like that long ago.. seems like yesterday and yet at the same time seems like a lifetime ago.. I have only 68 lbs til goal!!! Getting closer everyday.. I have learned that I really need to eat alot to meet my fat burning zone and to keep the protien and fluids levels UP .. if I dont stay with in 1000-1200 cals 90-120g protien and at least 64-100 oz of liquids.. I do not lose weight... so I been eating everything in sight and have lost 2 lbs over the weekend.. I CAN DO THIS!!! I will hit goal in NO TIME... keep an eye on me.. you will see... hugs to ALL who reads this!
Life is excellent .. for me...!
10 09 06 206 Lbs ... gggrrrrr I have GAINED WEIGHT!!!! I am not sure why... I did have some Chinese food over the weekend... I hope this is water retention? Must be the whole damn OCEAN I am holding onto... Exercise Boot camp starts tonight.. 2 hours hard core cardio... Tony Little Leslie Sansone Jake Chuck Norris.. we will become very close friends for the next month... going to turn this around if it kills me... Stay tuned for progress updates ...
10 12 06 202 lbs.. ok so I have managed to peel a couple lbs off... but as I was re-reading my own blog here I see that in July I was 208 so July Aug Sept Oct have been a BUST!!!! Time for my weight to start moving again... 6 lbs in 4 months is UNACCEPTABLE!!!
10 13 06 200 lbs! Ok I am making the scale move again in the RIGHT direction! Thank God! Been working out 2 hours a night.. Yes that is what it takes for me.. and EATING more ... making sure that I stay in the "Zone".. Just remember Keep your fluid protein and Calories at the right levels and get that EXERCISE in! I shoot for 90-120g Protein... as much fluid (powerade..hate plain water) as I can get.. and at Least 1000 cals ... the cals is a hard thing to hit unless I eat junk to.. but I am staying AWAY from the junk... It is Friday the 13th .. and I feel gggreeeat!
hugs to all who reads this..
10 16 06 197 lbs!! 107 lbs LOST!!! I have been religously exercising my 2 hours a day.. 5 -6 days a week.. finally made it BACK INTO 1-derland!!! Wooohoooo!!! Now hopefully I will stay here.. I feel sooo good. But I want you all to know ... surgery does NOT guarentee a magic bullet... you CAN regain weight and stop losing early on ..the last 4 months I only lost 12 lbs.. that is 3 lbs a month.. and that is WITH SURGERY!! it is a battle to the bitter end... the surgery just stacks the odds more in your favor if you are working it... for me..if I do not exercise like a demon I will not lose weight..even with the surgery .. I have the metabolism of a dead person. exercise has become a HUGE part of who I am now... and its OK I love it. If I do not exercise I miss it and need to bend and move...I love to move my body... make it do things I could never do before... see how far I can push my physical limits ... I have 67 lbs more to hit my goal of 130... I am going to battle like a warrior and get there... keep your eyes on me.. you will see... next pic update will be November 18th... my one year anniversary... it is coming up soon... be sure you check back and see how I have done... I am in the drivers seat now... I will take myself to new destinations and experiences... because I can.
Now get out there and have a great day... and burn some calories!

May 1 2008 Thursday 230 lbs
Ok this is a update I have been long dreading. My lowest weight in Oct 2007 was 197. I had squeaked under the 200 lb mark But I had to take Phentermine to get there. Prescribed by my WLS Dr. My weight was NOT moving even with the intense exercise routine. But.. the phentermine made me insane.. I also was up for 2 days straight off one pill and still could feel the effects 3 days later! I had to trash those. My weight gradually started creeping up on me when I quit the exercise. I had a Motorcycle fubar that took me off my feet for two months straight and left me on crutches another month That 3 months out of the gym left me in a situation where it was hard to get back into the routine. I also started drinking wine... to help with stress levels. Then combined with a weakness for cheetohs.. yeah that damage was done! I still do not eat a lot of food as I cannot hold the volume. But the things I should eat HURT! Meat WILL make me hurl. I gravitated to the wine and cheetohs because it did not hurt. But in the long run it has hurt me worse than anything! So today is May 1st 2008 2 1/2 years post op and I have regained 30 lbs!!!! This is frigtening! So now I am on Bontril 105mg. I dont feel like I have the crazies like I did on the Phentermine. I have started my Diet/Exercise regime. I am also doing the one other thing that I stopped. Drinking the liquid protein. I have not been meeting that need. Not even halfway. And without the protein. No amount of diet and exercise will help. Wish me luck. I am going to need it. I will fight this Monster with all I have. It is a battle to the death. I will update this blog in 2 weeks. Hopefully I will be reporting a lower weight. Be well and Be safe!
May 2 2008 FRI 226 lbs
Well at least the scale is moving dowwards! I have a long way to go. Seems the Bontril does not give me the Postal Mental crazies and I was able to sleep very well last night. I maintained less than a 1000 cals. was tempted with wine bit did not partake. I will incorporate 320 cals for wine tonight after all it is FRIDAY! After I get my 90 mins cardio in. I am feeling better already knowing that I have put both feet back on the path. I can and will get this done.
August 25 2008 202 lbs.
Well with Diet and Exercise and Bontil 105 mg ... I have managed 28 lbs loss to date. I feel good and that is important to me more than anything. I also have determined that STRESS will prevent weight loss. A recent divorce and west to east coast move has done wonders for Mind Spirit and Body. I am hopeful that I may yet achieve a long ago lost goal. I am looking for 145 lbs. Tummy tuck and Boob job! I will get there.... you will see...
Just remember... weight CAN be regained... even with bariatric surgery. And anyone who tells me I chose the easy way ... I will blacken their eye! ;P
Sept 11 2008 192 lbs. Total Lost Since Date of surgery 112
Making progress towards my goal of 150 lbs would like to make 140 but I will determine that if I can get to 150. This is not a wasy battle but I AM doing it through Diet Exercise and keeping my Protein levels UP. 192 is my lowest weight yet. ONE-DERLAND!!! YAY! Now I have my sights set to see the 180's start showing on the scale. Someday in the next 15 months I hope to make goal and get a Tummy Tuck and a new improved "rack" hehehe
and maybe some inner thigh work...and lipo on the upper arms...you all know the areas... ugh!
I will post pictures next month
